    So I used to work with this girl called Sarah, who was a real no bullshit kind of person. I really liked her because she was intelligent and articulate, someone I could actually hold a conversation with. She was well read, she kept up on current events and she could talk politics while...

    Well I enjoy my light reads, particularly Marian Keyes, so I thought I'd get a kick out of the Shopaholic series-not so. The protagonist is irritating and irrational to the point of annoyance. I surmise though that this series and it's popularity has to do with how people view money....

    I was in the library when I walked by this book, while I was looking for another book. I pulled it off the shelf and because I've found and read some pretty amazing book with this randomness, I thought ok. Another reason I have become a little obsessed with shopping on ebay. I thought ...

    Vile cultural poison masquerading as a poorly-written novel. I think that a heroin addiction is less damaging to young women, and it's certainly more interesting to read about. If there is a male equivalent to women?s mindless pursuit of name-brand (read: expensive) fashion, it w...

    I really hate slamming books, really I do. This book is the typical chick-lit that I've grown to love, and to be fair, it's a quick read. But, my praise stops there. The main character of this book, Rebecca Bloomwood, is the most annoying, daft, and ridiculous character I have ev...

    Funny. Light. Completely brainless. Perfect beach book. The main character is a completely out of control shopaholic, and will go to any lengths to conceal her addiction while still feeding it on the sly. It's a thoroughly enjoyable book, but it has a fatal flaw, the flaw that made me ...

    The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic (Shopaholic, #1), Sophie Kinsella ( Madeleine Wickham) The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic (2000) (Confessions of a Shopaholic in the United States and India) is the first in the popular Shopaholic series. It is a chick-lit novel by Sophie Kinse...

    After college, I wanted nothing to do with serious books. And so began my quest for all books fluffy and light. The cover of this screamed fluff at me. This book is NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY. Take it for what it is - hilarious chick lit. Otherwise, you'll find yourself realizing that i...

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book! I saw so much of myself in the main characters spending personality that it just made me laugh all the way thru reading it. The book has that Bridget Jones feel but wer as Bridget is clueless in relationships Rebecca is clueless with credit and spending. Her...

    As a Shopaholic myself, I found this book really enjoyable. If you like shopping at all, this book will make you laugh. The main character gets into funny situations constantly. It's not an advanced physics treatise, but it's not mindless either. The effort the main character goes to t...

    This book was a waste of my time. And I spent far too much time on this book that I really didn't like. The first 200 pages or so are spent with the main character, Rebecca, avoiding all her collection calls and all the letters in the mail from her creditors. She stuffs things into...

    I picked this book up on a whim at the thrift store. I had heard it was fun and hilarious and that I'd love it. It wasn't, and I didn't. In fact, I only made it 25% into the book before I decided that reading more just wasn't for me. For starters, the main character gives me a ...

    This is a wonderful, light, fluffy read. It was the first real 'chick lit' book I ever read and it got me hooked. The character is vivid and fun, and I can identify well (a bit too well!) with Becky Bloomwood and her retail therapy issues. I love the use of the present tense and first ...

    I've been wanting to read this series for forever but was waiting for my library to finally add it. They did, then there was a crazy wait list for it... yes, in 2018 lol. I guess I wasn't the only one waiting to read it. My impressions: Not at all like the movie, but I read somewhe...

    Opening line: "Ok. Don't panic. It's only a Visa bill. It's a piece of paper, a few numbers. I mean, just how scary can a few numbers be?" It's been ages since I?ve read any chick-lit but when I found this book amidst a bunch of ?free stuff? left at the mail boxes (ironic hey,...

    I think it's hilarious that these books dominate the "chick-lit" scene when they are, in fact, the most sexist books I've managed to come across. And this one really takes the prize. This is my third Kinsella book, and so far the women are always complete idiotic dip-shits that only...

    If you know anyone that is impulsive, spendy, and irresponsible, do not let him/her read this book . Seriously. Because for any normal woman (or man) with above average impulsive shopping tendencies, this book will make him/her feel better about his/herself. Take me, for ex...

    Main character gets a few lucky breaks so she can continue pulling the same immature shit as she did at the beginning of the book and learns absolute fuckall in the process. ...

    If you saw the movie before reading the book, you will not find many similarities in the movie and this book. the movie takes much of its content from the second Shopaholic book. I liked this book, I found it fun and quite humorous. I have to say I enjoyed the movie more than this ...

    This book was super cute...Becky's "justifications" for all her purchases made me laugh! I also now feel a strangely intense desire to go shopping :P ...

    This book pleasantly surprised me! I went into this book expecting it to be just like the movie (which, by the way I love), but it might as well have been a completely different story. The only things it has in common with the movie are the character names, the obsessive shopper and in...

    This is one of the most poorly written books I?ve read this year. BUT. It?s also one of the funniest and cleverest and most interestingly narrated. It?s so very extremely hard to put it down. Rebecca Bloomwood is a funny and heart-warming heroine. Her fear of facing her ev...

    Forgot to mention I binge read the first three books in this series a couple weekends ago. I don't really do chicklit, but this was amazing. BRIDGET JONES FEELS EVERYWHERE. LOVED THIS. Thank you Inge for an amazing recommendation. This was feel good chocolate and wine and shoes and ...

    The Shopaholic series always puts me in a good mood. Really all of Sophie Kinsella's books put me in a good mood. They are just so light, fluffy and fun. Sophie Kinsella's writing is like ice cream on hot July day. In Confessions of a Shopaholic we meet Rebecca Bloomwood(Becky to h...

    My curiosity with this book has finally ended. In my humble opinion, the movie is a million times better. No....seriously, trust me. IT IS I'm just going to promote the movie and convince you guys to watch it. Why? Well kids.... 1) 2) Ye...

    I do re-read this book every couple of years. Probably because it was my first glimpse of Becky Bloomwood and I liked her a lot. I remember being in my 20s and spending with my credit card like I wasn't going to have to pay the bill. And I remember the juggling I did to pay down bills ...

    I just realized a slightly crazy thing: The movie was way better than the book. So much better. Now, if you?ll excuse me, I?m gonna watch the movie for the 6172 time. ...
