    I love shopping vicariously through Becky

    Angelc
    Love her or hate her, Rebecca Bloomwood is possibly one of the most memorable characters in current fiction She s so over the top and fabulous even though the poor thing really does have an addiction as bad as any other addiction she s a shopaholic I read the first Shopaholic book and absolutely loved how fun and fanciful the whole idea was, and Becky s romance with Luke was unexpected and sweet However, reading the sequel, I often felt like I was reading the exact same book over again, but with [...]

    4.5 5Book 10 100 for 2015 I loved this book Rebecca really grew as a character and I am in LOVE with her and Luke I really enjoyed the change in location from London to NYC as well I can t wait to get my hands on the next book

    I tried, I really did but I couldn t get past the first chapter and knowing that there are, what, 3 4 books in the series after this I just couldn t make myself finish it It s probably because I get very irritated by people who are stupid when it comes to managing their money and being irresponsible so the fact that this dim wit is now giving others financial advice left a bad taste in my mouth and the fact that she had dug herself into debt again just made me mad I looked at all the other book [...]

    Off the bat, I m yet to warm up to Rebecca Bloomwood I didn t connect with her in Shopaholic, or in Shopaholic Sister I read it before Manhattan You would think that with the second book, Rebecca has at least grown some or gained depth Instead, she s the same Becky we met in Shopaholic a pathological liar, a trait that makes her look insecure rather than someone to be pitied She s still dumb, daft, dense, shallow, whiny and a hypocrite who dishes out what she can t take Rebecca is also SO aggrav [...]

    Following Becky Bloomwood s life with her little issue of overextending herself with credit cards and her need for the designer offerings I first saw the movie and it set a pretty high bar when I read book 1 I didn t find the movie in that book, but it was definitely lurking inside this one I was happy to find the familiar workings of Becky s mind in full glory in this book I liked the book enough to move on to book 3.

    I am glad that I re read this book, but feel disappointed overall with how the earlier books in the Shopaholic series no longer stand up I think it s because I have already read these books and the latest, that I just feel nothing but flat out annoyance towards Rebecca Becky and her hare brained schemes to not pay her bills, to cover up when she s in over her head, and somehow through sheer luck to get out of trouble And then somehow is in the right in the end when she is 100 percent in the wron [...]

    I am slowly working my way through this series and re reading it before the movie premiers I laughed my way through the books the first time and really got a kick out of it And I am laughing again the second time round too however, I am starting to realize that Becky is to put it quite frankly DUMB Who does the things that she does And then gets by with it Pure dumb luck is the only thing that pulls her out of the strange and contradictory situations that this girl gets herself into But Luke Bra [...]

    I know I know I hated the first one, why read the second I actually really TRIED to like these since my friend just LOVED them and raved about them and continuously wanted to discuss them sigh I wouldn t have finished if I didn t have this obsessive tendency to HAVE to finish a book I start Our favorite whiny, self destructive, vacuous character on a rampage in Manhatten despite finding the job of her dreams she manages to be miserable Bah I don t think I disliked it because of the genre, though [...]

    I ll show Luke I can fit into the city I ll show him I can be a true New Yorker I ll go the gym, and then I ll eat a bagel, and I ll shoot someone, maybe Or maybe just the gym will be enough Okay, so for some reason when I first read this book back in 2015 I rated it 2 stars I have no idea what lemonade I was sipping back then because I was obviously drunk on something This book deserved way better than my wack ass 2 star rating Hopefully this review will redeem myself because Shopaholic Takes M [...]

    4.5 5Once again, Sophie Kinsella does it she creates a funny, romantic and original novel.I loved the first book in this series Its idea is so original, so well thought and so addicting that I know that, no matter how long it takes me, I m going to read this series to its end, because it s really amazing The continuation of the story in this book is just great Becky is aware of her tendencies, even though that doesn t mean she doesn t make mistakes again cause she makes A LOT of them in this bo [...]

    Rebecca s life seems to be in order now, what with the thriving TV show she s part of and her finally getting rid of all those debts And then her boyfriend announces he s going to open his business in the USA What else does a woman in love to do Follow her boyfriend, of course And soon, Becky Bloomwood strikes again This time, her crazy antics reached Manhattan, and Carrie Bradshaw was right to steer clear of her while she s in town Becky accompanies boyfriend Luke Brandon in NYC and before she [...]

    hahahahaha I mean her life is fabulous and terrific and pathetic at the same time I love this book, I totally love this book because like Becky, I myself put my leg on an axe so many times, screwed my life so many phases of my life still I survive the situation by continuous witty lies don t judge me okay I have also a good heart like her and then one day wins everybody s heart and my luck with my truth and hard work It s a fun read, a very comfy read to relax your mind highly recommended to dep [...]

    Becky s carelessness seriously gives me anxiety As someone who s always been stingy with my money, I can t imagine spending so carelessly That being said, I do have a closet stuffed full of clothes and Becky s eventual purge inspired me to do the same just this morning Yay me And I know that Becky surely won t actually learn a lesson and go through the same thing again next book.

    Tania
    This was a terrific, funny book Book two of the Shopaholic series sees Becky and her boyfriend Luke moving to New York so he can set up a new office there As expected, Becky s shopping gets out of hand again, creating disaster It s not a complicated book at all But that s not a bad thing this is a terrific book to curl up in bed with, or to take to the beach with you I found myself laughing out loud a great deal than I did with the first book Becky s attempts to sneak in her purchases without a [...]

    Recensione con SPOILERVorrei poter dire che ho amato questo libro, che sono stata pi che coinvolta nella storia, che Sophie Kinsella una scrittrice fenomenale e che non vedo l ora di poter mettere le mani su altri suoi libri e su altre storie eccezionali come questa E invece, l unica cosa che dico che non capisco come questo libro pu essere definito un Best Sellers Sinceramente, penso che questo libro non valga nemmeno gli 8,40 euro che la Mondadori chiede per comprarlo Come diavolo pu piacere u [...]

    I absolutely love Sophie Kinsella, with the exception of the Shopaholic series She makes me laugh and I ve recently discovered that audio is a perfect way to enjoy her books I m using this newfound knowledge to see if I can find some appreciation for the Shopaholic series after all, but so far, no I first read Confessions of a Shopaholic when I was in university and excess spending wasn t a luxury I could afford I thought perhaps that was why I didn t like it that much and would have appreciati [...]

    Becky is so awesome and so awkward at the same time I would drown in shame if things like this would happen to me And I would have punched some people Like, a lot of them Love the series so far

    Ellen
    I enjoyed this a lot I thought it was a lot of fun Her shopping addiction felt repetitive but the plot was interesting and different enough to keep me engaged

    First of all I M NOT A CHICKLIT READER get that OK Most Women love to shop.I get that.Why women love to shop and tend to buy something they don t actually need useless I don t get that Well, it s a girl stuff I guess and I don t wanna know DYou see, dear, it is not true that woman was made from man s rib she was really made from his funny bone James Matthew Barrie That s how I felt about Becky s character, in another word I like her I know that some reader girls really, I mean really really hate [...]

    Oddly enough, I actually liked this sequel better than the original Shopaholic book Of course, I was annoyed that Becky didn t seem to understand that she was slipping back into old habits I don t understand how she can pay attention to the tiniest details of certain things that she really cares about, but doesn t pick up on the sketchy people that are trying to get information from her Suze is even of an airhead than Becky is, unbelievably at times.So, yes The whole series is about crazy women [...]

    Just when I thought I would be disappointed in a sequel, Ms Kinsella proves me wrong This Shopaholic book is a fantastic read, and amazingly it s even better than the first The first book introduced us, with vivacious clarity, to the funny and quite endearing protagonist Becky Bloomwood But in this second novel, although the reader will receive exposure to her hilarious shopping exploits, the author has narrated a completely different perspective by placing Becky in the fashion capital of the w [...]

    Becky Bloomwood I read about what s going on in her head, but I still don t understand it I don t see how she could think that some of the things she does are logical I really liked the change of scenery, but I was worried I was going to get a over stereotyped version of New York America like in the Georgia Nicolson series That was not the case I m really pleased with how it was done actually Although I don t understand why both Becky and Georgia think all Americans are so nice People aren t tha [...]

    This is the sequel of The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic It s funny, entertaining but somehow highly predictable I guess that if you read the first book you will know how the second develops and ends Becky gets in trouble once again for spending a lot of money on clothes Shocker You would think that she would have learned her lesson the first time around, but she s an aholic and I guess it s an aholic s natural condition to be unable to resist their aholic temptation, especially when their ah [...]
