The lead character, Paige, is trying to find her feet in London having just moved from Canada. When she finds herself a tabloid starlet she doesn't want to seek fame but a meaningful place for herself in her new country. She travels Europe, she meets a variety of desirable (and less desirable men) and makes wonderful friends. Paige makes some questionable choices (like we all did at 22) but you forgive her everything because she is endearing and HILARIOUS.

Usually when I pick up a book of this genre I don't expect much from what I am about to read. I know the lead character will be flawed in some way and after some mishaps will find happiness through a handsome man and while there's a place for those stories I never enjoy them that much. The Accidental Socialite was not like this, it was SO different to the other chick lit books I'd read before.

Loved it so much I've read it twice.

As a North American living in London this book felt like a non-fiction. I devoured the pages, feeling like I was on a reunion tour of my first few months of living abroad - yet I suddenly had a glamorous new best friend to share it with. The anecdotes are spot on for anyone who wonders what it's like to try to find you ground (in stilettos) in this marvelous country. Bravo!

The story revolves around Paige who just like many other 22 year old's wants to get away from the town she used to call home and move to the big city that is London. Having just finished university, Paige thinks it is the perfect idea to start the rest of her life, and she can't be more excited and nervous at the same time.

Though London is completely different from her native home that is Canada, then again, with her new friend, Lucinda to talk to maybe life will be good living in a new city. Things seem to be going well for Paige in London, until she falls for a stranger, literally falls on them after she had a bit too much to drink one night.

Her life changes though she isn't sure if it is a good thing or not, though when her picture gets puts on the front cover of newspapers, accusing her of having a affair, with a married man who also happens to be famous. Paige is thrown into a life she never wanted, when she moved to London she had no idea her life would turn out this way, now she has to put right her mistakes and get back on the right track.

Paige is a true romantic girl that you would see in other chick-lit books or movies, with her kind nature and her smart wit she is everything you could want in a main character. This book displayed what happens when rumours get out of hand which many people can relate to. It also shows the journey a young woman takes to find herself by moving to a new country and trying to make a life for herself with a few bumps along the way.

The Accidental Socialite is a great new addition to the chick-lit genre, with the drama, funny moments, rumours and friendships it has everything you could want in a chick-lit novel. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves books by Adele Parks or Victoria Fox.
If I had to sum this book up in three words, they would be Marvellous, Witty and Wonderful.

By Sophie TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 27 April 2014

The Accidental Socialite was fast-paced, maybe a bit too fast-paced to allow for full character development but as for a light-hearted read, this book was brilliantly entertaining! It was quick and all out fun – a great choice of book for those wanting a pick-me-up or something just to plaster a smile on your face.

Oh Paige – bless her – she didn’t have much luck! Her life seemed to roll from one ridiculous event to another and this book had me cracking up the whole way through. I laughed a whole lot through The Accidental Socialite and at times I just wished all books could be as fun as this one. Stand out moments for me were the Pilates class and Paige’s Fall for Fanny’s proposal which had me sat with a big stupid grin on my face.

The other characters, I don’t think we learnt too much about and at the beginning, I was getting confused by all the names and forgetting who they actually were. However, as the book went on, the two side characters which I really loved were Carlos and Lucinda. Carlos, the gay best friend, I thought was going to be ridiculously bitchy but actually he was fun and supportive and I liked his loyalty to Paige.

The Accidental Socialite was wonderful escapism – they say celebrity culture is a great thing to distract ourselves from our own lives and what better way than to laugh at the antics of a Z-list celebrity in a fabulous book?! Honestly, this book was a bit of a surprise package for me as I didn’t expect to love it like I did. As much as it was easy to laugh at Paige’s misfortune, she was a sweet character and easy to root for too, making The Accidental Socialite a wonderfully amusing book.

4.5/5.

*Book gifted for honest review.

The book revolves mainly around Paige, a 22-year-old girl who has just moved to London in order to begin a new life. Like anyone else, she is nervous and excited about her life in London, which seems to start off pretty well when she gets to know Lucinda (the person who comes to be the closest friend of Paige in London) and later is asked out by a handsome hunk Jason and ends up in The Box (not a literal one though). The story takes its pace from the moment Paige gets a little too drunk and trips and falls only to get held by an unknown stranger. Very soon afterwards, a gossip that spreads like a wildfire through every newspapers and magazines, claims that the superstar Chelsea footballer, “notorious ladies man”, Stuart Smith is dating someone behind his pop star wife’s back. And guess what? The front page is covered with Paige’s photo with the ‘unknown stranger’. Uh-oh.

Before Paige can understand the gravity of the situation and take necessary steps, things go totally out of hand. And her life’s never the same. It feels like a roller-coaster ride, thanks to all the news articles or magazines. Sometimes she’s having the most awesome moments of her life, and sometimes she’s apparently dying of heartbreak. And all these times, Paige is either too dumbstruck or frustrated to react. I loved Paige’s character in a way that it’s easy to connect with somehow. Even if you are not in the similar context, you can empathize. If you have ever heard or read or faced a rumor about you that was so shocking and pissing and life-alteringly disgusting, your heart would clearly go out for her (I’m saying that because mine did!)

Paige’s life in London carries out in a trial-and-error way. She makes mistakes, of course.
