    Have you tried the Madeleine Wickham books? Its the real name of Sophie Kinsella. The books are not written in the same jokey/farcical way as the Shopaholic/Can you keep a secret/Undomestic Goddess books, but are still written very well and enjoyable.

    Also you don't mention if you have read 'Can you keep a secret?' or 'Undomestic Goddess' both are in a similar vein to the Shopaholic series and a great read.

    HTH

    P.S: Just thought of another author that I absolutely love, and have all of his books - have you tried the Mike Gayle books? They are modern relationship type stories, very well written. Once I pick up one of his books I find it hard not to just sit and read it cover to cover

    Marian Keyes books are worth a read and early Fiona Walker too.

    There's a new one out by Sophie Kinsella who wrote the shopaholic books called 'Remember Me?' - I've not read it but seen it in Asda.

    Jane Green is a very good read, also Lisa Jewell and Dorothy Koomson (especially My Best Friends Girl).

    Trying to teach myself good habits
    Remeber me is a bit odd. Basically, and I'm not giving anythng away here, it's pretty much what it says on the back, this man is persuaded to ake a blood donation. This woman receives a transfusion. She has all these memories of places/peopl/things she doesn't know. The man and woman keep meeting up accidentally. I don't think it's as good as PS I Love You or where Rainbows end (my favourite of her books). Some of the bits with the dad are quite funny.

    I read a book the other week called Extra Confessions of a Working Girl (it's a sequel, I hadn't read the first, but there is very little, if any, reference to the first book in there). It's written by a prostitute-Miss S-about her time working, in this one, as a dancer in a strip club, in a massage parlour and in an escort agency in London. It's very good.

    Another good book that I read recently was Call the Midwife. Written by a nurse/midwife who worked in the east end of London in the early fifties I think. It was fascinating reading about how hinks were done back then (it may just hve been me as I'm just qualifying as a nurse, and she does disucss some nursing in there, and seeing how it was done 50 years ago).

    Im a bit confused lol I think you might have Remember Me mixed up with another book?? Remember Me is by Sophie Kinsella, the other ones you mention are by Ceceila Aherne.

    Remember me is about a girl who wakes up in hospital and has complete amnesia and discovers shes married to a mutli millionaire. She hates the life she discovers she now lives.
