    I had the misfortune of buying this book before a long flight to Europe. Due to a lack of alternative entertainment, I read the book from cover to cover. While the book had some funny excerpts, my extreme dislike for the main character (Becky Brandon) overshadowed any enjoyment garnere...

    I read the Shopaholic books as soon as I can get my hands on a copy. Sophie Kinsella is a really funny writer. She has sustained the Shopaholic idea through more sequels than most writers can. However, this book (and the previous one, Shopaholic and Sister) isn't as spot-on as the firs...

    Ahh, how times have changed. I used to consider these books a good guilty pleasure; now I find there's a lot less pleasure and a lot more guilt. Kinsella is still an amusing, energetic writer, but Becky really grated on my nerves this time around. She's just so shallow and so frivolous...

    This is the fifth book in the Shopaholic series by Kinsella, and, I'm happy to say, an improvement over the last (Shopaholic & Sister). I don't want to spend a great deal of time catching you up on the whole series (check past blogs or Amazon for details), but in this installment B...

    this was my favorite of the whole series. partly because she doesn't do anything completely ridiculous, and you can see that she is learning and growing and communicating more, even if it's not as much as she should. i seriously love how becky and suze refer to people they don't like a...

    I'm officially over the Shopaholic books. They are all the same, Becky never learns anything, and I just can't imagine someone being as self-absorbed as she is. It was definitely something mindless to read while sitting by the pool, but won't change your life or anything. ...

    I'm enjoying the Shopaholic series more and more the deeper I get. It has finally segued from her spending addiction to the root of her problem which is poor impulse control. And when someone has minimal self-control, we all know the messes they can get themselves into lol. Becky's imp...

    For Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) life is going great. She has a fantastic job at The Look, the newest department store in London, herself and Luke are house-hunting (it must have a shoe-room) and Becky is pregnant. Pregnancy for Becky means not only bringing a new life into the world,...

    There is something wonderful about being able to pick up any book in the Shopaholic series and laugh out loud, forgetting about any other worries and escaping for a few hours. Sure some would say that chick-lit novels are a fluffy alternative to 'real' books and I guess they are, but t...

    Having read 'Remember Me' by the same author I decided to give this book a go. Despite not being the biggest fan of babies I wanted to read the book to see what makes the author so popular. I liked the subjects raised in the book - some of the issues are potentially very real but I was...

    I checked out this book from our local library in hopes to try something a little different. This is the first I've read of any of the shopaholic books. I was aggravated by this book. How on earth could someone be so consumed with shopping and what other people think of them is beyond ...

    Sometimes I find the shopaholic books hit or miss. This one was a miss for me. I did not like the frivolous way that Becky behaved. I always find her odd and flighty, but this story made me totally confused. I understand the doubts and nerves of gaining baby weight and yet, she takes i...

    Okay, how do I feel about this series? Dear Becky, Just quick question; why are you so dumb? I don't mean to offend you because academically you seem fine, but the general rule of intelligence is to learn from your mistakes. Have you EVER learned from your mistakes? People aro...

    Sophie Kinsella is one of my favorite authors, and the Shopaholic series my favorite books. . I find them witty, humorous, exciting, and so much fun to read! I personally find Becky to be the perfect blend of silly and intelligent. I find all the characters relatable and I think their ...

    A first for me of the Sophie Kinsella Shopaholic series. I started off not sure if I'd like the heroine, Becky, who at first glance appeared shallow and only interested in the designer lifestyle. However as I got into the story I gradually warmed to her. What a quirky and lovable chara...
