    So...I really wanted to dislike this book. I was determined not to allow myself to be one of "those girls." You know...the ones who plan ladies night out to watch Sex and the City. I've never had a desire to read Bridget Jones' Diary or The Devil Wears Prada (although I do hate to admi...

    Goal: Read a light book and laugh my ass off. Result: Read a stupid book that made me want to cut it into little pieces. Overall Goal: Happiness. Overall Result: A sh*tty headache. All my friends gave Can You Keep A Secret? a high score, all of them loved it, all of them ...

    Two point five-ish stars ^^ Quirky, hilarious read about a 25 year old clumsy, silly, awkward Emma who is always caught in the most embarrassing situations and thinking she?s probably not yet embarrassed enough, spewed out every single one of her deepest, darkest most embarrassin...

    I'm not really 100% into Chick-Lit, but this is one of those books that I've seen pop up over and over again on all the Best Of lists over the years, and I've grown quite curious. No, seriously. True story. Anyway. I've been on the hunt for really funny fluff this past mo...

    This was such a fun and entertaining book! I laughed out loud multiple times and I also cringed several times because of how embarrassed I was for Emma. My only problem with this book is that I felt like it could have been longer! It felt rushed at times and I wished there was more of...

    OMG, this book is laugh out loud funny, like sitting in my cubicle at work just giggling to myself. In the days, I spent reading this one I told numerous people about it because I was just so excited and happy to find a book that made me actual loud out loud. Some of my best friends ra...

    Gosh, this books was so much fun!!! Often times when I?m told a book is funny, I usually find that it turns out being more painful to read than anything. But damn, is Sophie Kinsella hilarious! Can You Keep a Secret follows the charismatic tale of Emma Corrigan. This...

    Definitely overhyped, I think, but as always I find Sophie Kinsella's heroines charming and funny and her stories just really manage to uplift my mood. ...

    ?Can You Keep A Secret?? Are you serious?!!??!? NO! I?m gonna spill all your secrets to my friends, Emma. You cannot trust me on this! I?m a bitch, I know. hahaha 1st secret: Guys.. this clumsy lady, Emma Corrigan is so damn lucky! She not that have much money, but she m...

    Rating Breakdown: Enjoyment - 5 stars Story - 3 stars Emma - 3.5 stars Jack - 2 stars Side characters - 5 stars Ending - 2.5 stars The average is 3.5 stars, but since enjoyment is my number one reason for reading in the first place, I'll round it up to 4 stars. This book i...

    Have you ever been on a plane ride through hell and you got so scared, you thought it was better to say what you have been dying to say all your life before you crash? I feel that way every time, honestly! Although I wouldn?t go into so much detail as Emma did in ?Can You Keep A Se...

    My first - and almost certainly last - foray into chick lit. Very shallow, contrived and implausible, albeit in a self-conscious ("ironic"?) way. Although the "plot" may excuse the improbable co-incidences, there is no justification for the ludicrously artificial dialogue. I find a...

    I swear the moment I was done with this book...I was just so..soo.. SO DAMN FRUSTRATED The ending seemed so...lacking? Disappointing? Hell ! Fr the first time,in my history of reading books.I actually ended up hating the hero Jack,(view spoiler)[(who spilled all her sec...

    This was SO enjoyable to me! It delivered on the premise. I felt like the meme of eating popcorn while reveling in the drama. Cautions: -The whole thing revolves around an entry level employee and the CEO of her company knowing inappropriate things about her. I didn't feel like thi...

    This was really cute and funny! A great lighthearted read. Review to come! ...

    First of all thank you, Jasprit, for insisting I read this one. A couple of days ago I was sick and in bed all day. I had just finished another book and was wondering which book to start next. I saw this on my Nook and remembered you said it's her best book. This book really made me ...

    This book was hilarious. The basic idea is, imagine what would happen if in a moment of panic you were to spill all your darkest secrets to a perfect stranger and of course that stranger was extremely attractive and turned out to be a new big shot at your company, genius uh? When Emm...

    Review posted on Fafa's Book Corner! Beware spoilers ahead! I have been a fan of Kinsella's since Finding Audrey. Naturally I went through all of her books and tried to decide which one to read. Can You Keep a Secret? stood out the most. I am happy to say that I loved it! ...

    2.5 stars "it was ok" is seriously such an accurate description of this book. good job, description-that-hovers-over-the-2-star-rating! emma, our main character, is monumentally irritating. she compulsively lies about things that she shouldn't have to lie about, and is so horrend...

    Can You Keep a Secret is possibly my favorite Kinsella standalone. It follows the story of Emma, an ordinary, slightly ditzy girl (think Anna from Anna and the French Kiss) who accidentally spills all her secrets to a stranger on the plane. And that stranger later turns out to be he...

    3.5 stars Alright, I've been reading romance novels off late. It's one of those phases. And this is one of my favourites. Did Emma get on my nerves by whining too much? Sure. Was Jack way, way out of her league? Sure. But thing is, this woman knows how to pen chick-lit. She gets you...

    a real funny and light novel, one of my favorite chic lits. this is my 3rd re read of this novel and it never fails to make me laugh :D ...

    Worst book I have read in a LONG, long time. Seriously, How could so many of you like this book? Now I remember why I hate chick-lit so much. After having read and adored Something Borrowed and Something Blue I thought I wasn't giving enough credit to this genre, I thought there were s...

    So...I really wanted to dislike this book. I was determined not to allow myself to be one of "those girls." You know...the ones who plan ladies night out to watch Sex and the City. I've never had a desire to read Bridget Jones' Diary or The Devil Wears Prada (although I do hate to admi...

    Goal: Read a light book and laugh my ass off. Result: Read a stupid book that made me want to cut it into little pieces. Overall Goal: Happiness. Overall Result: A sh*tty headache. All my friends gave Can You Keep A Secret? a high score, all of them loved it, all of them ...

    Two point five-ish stars ^^ Quirky, hilarious read about a 25 year old clumsy, silly, awkward Emma who is always caught in the most embarrassing situations and thinking she?s probably not yet embarrassed enough, spewed out every single one of her deepest, darkest most embarrassin...

    I'm not really 100% into Chick-Lit, but this is one of those books that I've seen pop up over and over again on all the Best Of lists over the years, and I've grown quite curious. No, seriously. True story. Anyway. I've been on the hunt for really funny fluff this past mo...

    This was such a fun and entertaining book! I laughed out loud multiple times and I also cringed several times because of how embarrassed I was for Emma. My only problem with this book is that I felt like it could have been longer! It felt rushed at times and I wished there was more of...

    OMG, this book is laugh out loud funny, like sitting in my cubicle at work just giggling to myself. In the days, I spent reading this one I told numerous people about it because I was just so excited and happy to find a book that made me actual loud out loud. Some of my best friends ra...

    Gosh, this books was so much fun!!! Often times when I?m told a book is funny, I usually find that it turns out being more painful to read than anything. But damn, is Sophie Kinsella hilarious! Can You Keep a Secret follows the charismatic tale of Emma Corrigan. This...

    Definitely overhyped, I think, but as always I find Sophie Kinsella's heroines charming and funny and her stories just really manage to uplift my mood. ...

    ?Can You Keep A Secret?? Are you serious?!!??!? NO! I?m gonna spill all your secrets to my friends, Emma. You cannot trust me on this! I?m a bitch, I know. hahaha 1st secret: Guys.. this clumsy lady, Emma Corrigan is so damn lucky! She not that have much money, but she m...

    Rating Breakdown: Enjoyment - 5 stars Story - 3 stars Emma - 3.5 stars Jack - 2 stars Side characters - 5 stars Ending - 2.5 stars The average is 3.5 stars, but since enjoyment is my number one reason for reading in the first place, I'll round it up to 4 stars. This book i...

    Have you ever been on a plane ride through hell and you got so scared, you thought it was better to say what you have been dying to say all your life before you crash? I feel that way every time, honestly! Although I wouldn?t go into so much detail as Emma did in ?Can You Keep A Se...

    My first - and almost certainly last - foray into chick lit. Very shallow, contrived and implausible, albeit in a self-conscious ("ironic"?) way. Although the "plot" may excuse the improbable co-incidences, there is no justification for the ludicrously artificial dialogue. I find a...

    I swear the moment I was done with this book...I was just so..soo.. SO DAMN FRUSTRATED The ending seemed so...lacking? Disappointing? Hell ! Fr the first time,in my history of reading books.I actually ended up hating the hero Jack,(view spoiler)[(who spilled all her sec...

    This was really cute and funny! A great lighthearted read. Review to come! ...

    Can You Keep a Secret is possibly my favorite Kinsella standalone. It follows the story of Emma, an ordinary, slightly ditzy girl (think Anna from Anna and the French Kiss) who accidentally spills all her secrets to a stranger on the plane. And that stranger later turns out to be he...

    3.5 stars Alright, I've been reading romance novels off late. It's one of those phases. And this is one of my favourites. Did Emma get on my nerves by whining too much? Sure. Was Jack way, way out of her league? Sure. But thing is, this woman knows how to pen chick-lit. She gets you...

    a real funny and light novel, one of my favorite chic lits. this is my 3rd re read of this novel and it never fails to make me laugh :D ...

    Worst book I have read in a LONG, long time. Seriously, How could so many of you like this book? Now I remember why I hate chick-lit so much. After having read and adored Something Borrowed and Something Blue I thought I wasn't giving enough credit to this genre, I thought there were s...

    Are all of Sophie Kinsella's books this formulaic? Every day gal, coming across a handsome, eligible, scrumptious boss? This installment we have Emma, working in marketing come across the CEO. Will it be a happy ever after, who knows?! Kooky flatmates, the tube, bitchy office workers, ...

    What to say about this book? I remember when my friends and I went to Cebu (another BIG island next to ours. Philippines is composed of of 7,107 islands..) We went to a supermarket before going to our campsite to buy some basic stuffs. One of my friends, Jeffrey was with m...

    BR WITH AKIRA! Bo this was fun! I really liked this book! It was hilarious and Despite the second hand embarrassment it was very funny! Emma herself as a character is very flawed and might make you face-palm every other page or so, but nonetheless, she's very likeable. I enjoyed the...

    Two point five-ish stars ^^ Quirky, hilarious read about a 25 year old clumsy, silly, awkward Emma who is always caught in the most embarrassing situations and thinking she?s probably not yet embarrassed enough, spewed out every single one of her deepest, darkest most embarrassin...

    I'm not really 100% into Chick-Lit, but this is one of those books that I've seen pop up over and over again on all the Best Of lists over the years, and I've grown quite curious. No, seriously. True story. Anyway. I've been on the hunt for really funny fluff this past mo...

    OMG, this book is laugh out loud funny, like sitting in my cubicle at work just giggling to myself. In the days, I spent reading this one I told numerous people about it because I was just so excited and happy to find a book that made me actual loud out loud. Some of my best friends ra...

    Gosh, this books was so much fun!!! Often times when I?m told a book is funny, I usually find that it turns out being more painful to read than anything. But damn, is Sophie Kinsella hilarious! Can You Keep a Secret follows the charismatic tale of Emma Corrigan. This...

    Definitely overhyped, I think, but as always I find Sophie Kinsella's heroines charming and funny and her stories just really manage to uplift my mood. ...

    ?Can You Keep A Secret?? Are you serious?!!??!? NO! I?m gonna spill all your secrets to my friends, Emma. You cannot trust me on this! I?m a bitch, I know. hahaha 1st secret: Guys.. this clumsy lady, Emma Corrigan is so damn lucky! She not that have much money, but she m...

    Rating Breakdown: Enjoyment - 5 stars Story - 3 stars Emma - 3.5 stars Jack - 2 stars Side characters - 5 stars Ending - 2.5 stars The average is 3.5 stars, but since enjoyment is my number one reason for reading in the first place, I'll round it up to 4 stars. This book i...

    Have you ever been on a plane ride through hell and you got so scared, you thought it was better to say what you have been dying to say all your life before you crash? I feel that way every time, honestly! Although I wouldn?t go into so much detail as Emma did in ?Can You Keep A Se...

    My first - and almost certainly last - foray into chick lit. Very shallow, contrived and implausible, albeit in a self-conscious ("ironic"?) way. Although the "plot" may excuse the improbable co-incidences, there is no justification for the ludicrously artificial dialogue. I find a...

    Review posted on Fafa's Book Corner! Beware spoilers ahead! I have been a fan of Kinsella's since Finding Audrey. Naturally I went through all of her books and tried to decide which one to read. Can You Keep a Secret? stood out the most. I am happy to say that I loved it! ...

    2.5 stars "it was ok" is seriously such an accurate description of this book. good job, description-that-hovers-over-the-2-star-rating! emma, our main character, is monumentally irritating. she compulsively lies about things that she shouldn't have to lie about, and is so horrend...

    Can You Keep a Secret is possibly my favorite Kinsella standalone. It follows the story of Emma, an ordinary, slightly ditzy girl (think Anna from Anna and the French Kiss) who accidentally spills all her secrets to a stranger on the plane. And that stranger later turns out to be he...

    3.5 stars Alright, I've been reading romance novels off late. It's one of those phases. And this is one of my favourites. Did Emma get on my nerves by whining too much? Sure. Was Jack way, way out of her league? Sure. But thing is, this woman knows how to pen chick-lit. She gets you...

    a real funny and light novel, one of my favorite chic lits. this is my 3rd re read of this novel and it never fails to make me laugh :D ...

    Worst book I have read in a LONG, long time. Seriously, How could so many of you like this book? Now I remember why I hate chick-lit so much. After having read and adored Something Borrowed and Something Blue I thought I wasn't giving enough credit to this genre, I thought there were s...

    Emma doesn't like airplanes. In fact, she's terrified of them. One day she's on a flight when the airplane hits turbulance. Emma being Emma freaks out and begins to babble, thinking it was her last moment of life, she spilled all of her secrets to the stranger next to her. Her da...

    Are all of Sophie Kinsella's books this formulaic? Every day gal, coming across a handsome, eligible, scrumptious boss? This installment we have Emma, working in marketing come across the CEO. Will it be a happy ever after, who knows?! Kooky flatmates, the tube, bitchy office workers, ...

    Have you ever been on a plane ride through hell and you got so scared, you thought it was better to say what you have been dying to say all your life before you crash? I feel that way every time, honestly! Although I wouldn?t go into so much detail as Emma did in ?Can You Keep A Se...

    My first - and almost certainly last - foray into chick lit. Very shallow, contrived and implausible, albeit in a self-conscious ("ironic"?) way. Although the "plot" may excuse the improbable co-incidences, there is no justification for the ludicrously artificial dialogue. I find a...

    Review posted on Fafa's Book Corner! Beware spoilers ahead! I have been a fan of Kinsella's since Finding Audrey. Naturally I went through all of her books and tried to decide which one to read. Can You Keep a Secret? stood out the most. I am happy to say that I loved it! ...

    2.5 stars "it was ok" is seriously such an accurate description of this book. good job, description-that-hovers-over-the-2-star-rating! emma, our main character, is monumentally irritating. she compulsively lies about things that she shouldn't have to lie about, and is so horrend...

    Can You Keep a Secret is possibly my favorite Kinsella standalone. It follows the story of Emma, an ordinary, slightly ditzy girl (think Anna from Anna and the French Kiss) who accidentally spills all her secrets to a stranger on the plane. And that stranger later turns out to be he...

    3.5 stars Alright, I've been reading romance novels off late. It's one of those phases. And this is one of my favourites. Did Emma get on my nerves by whining too much? Sure. Was Jack way, way out of her league? Sure. But thing is, this woman knows how to pen chick-lit. She gets you...

    a real funny and light novel, one of my favorite chic lits. this is my 3rd re read of this novel and it never fails to make me laugh :D ...

    Worst book I have read in a LONG, long time. Seriously, How could so many of you like this book? Now I remember why I hate chick-lit so much. After having read and adored Something Borrowed and Something Blue I thought I wasn't giving enough credit to this genre, I thought there were s...

    Goal: Read a light book and laugh my ass off. Result: Read a stupid book that made me want to cut it into little pieces. Overall Goal: Happiness. Overall Result: A sh*tty headache. All my friends gave Can You Keep A Secret? a high score, all of them loved it, all of them ...

    Are all of Sophie Kinsella's books this formulaic? Every day gal, coming across a handsome, eligible, scrumptious boss? This installment we have Emma, working in marketing come across the CEO. Will it be a happy ever after, who knows?! Kooky flatmates, the tube, bitchy office workers, ...

    What to say about this book? I remember when my friends and I went to Cebu (another BIG island next to ours. Philippines is composed of of 7,107 islands..) We went to a supermarket before going to our campsite to buy some basic stuffs. One of my friends, Jeffrey was with m...

    BR WITH AKIRA! Bo this was fun! I really liked this book! It was hilarious and Despite the second hand embarrassment it was very funny! Emma herself as a character is very flawed and might make you face-palm every other page or so, but nonetheless, she's very likeable. I enjoyed the...
