Breaking into my Christmas gift (bookish tea) as I read a late holiday story.
It‘s been a very long time since I‘ve picked up a book from the Shopaholic series, but I was interested in giving it a try when searching for holiday themed books. I‘m glad that I did because I enjoyed it more than I anticipated! Becky is up to her usual antics, which often stresses me out, but the situations she gets herself into are both ridiculous and hilarious.

I had a fun time reading this one for the holidays! It‘s been ages since I read a shopaholic book and I couldn‘t resist this beauty at Barnes and Noble. I love the wit, charm and silliness of the series. It‘s British which is just wonderful as well. I thought I knew where this story was going, but I didn‘t which made for an enjoyable read! #shopaholicseries #holidayreads
Becky drives me up a wall. I think she needs therapy. I don't really know how her husband manages to stay her husband. Other than my dislike for the character, I enjoyed the way Kinsella told the story. I can't decide if she's critiquing the consumerism of today's capitalist society or diving deep into a shopping fantasy land fictionally incarnate for women to live through. https://onthebl.org/2019/12/20/christmas-shopaholic-by-sophie-kinsella/
I really liked this cute book with Becky Brandon, née Bloomwood, and her Christmas-y antics! A fun holiday read!

Also, this was my last book for #booked2019! #newin2019
This was the PERFECT read to get me into the holiday spirit! I love this series but haven‘t read the last few before this one and was worried I‘d have missed something crucial. Happy to say it was easy to pick right back up with Bex and her insanely silly antics! I even got a little teary at the ending. So sweet and fun and full of joy! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Struggled a lot with the first half, it felt like same ole same ole with Becky, no growth or interesting developments. Flew through the second half, it was funny with some heartwarming moments and showed the side of Becky that I like best.
Liked the ending, especially the tidbit at the end.

After the last Shopaholic book I said I was done with this series, but it‘s been a few years and this one is christmasy so I decided to give it a whirl, and I‘m already disappointed.
It‘s the same thing. I don‘t understand after all these years she learned absolutely nothing about herself or her husband!
Starting this holiday read. It‘s been awhile since I‘ve read a Shopaholic book, which was probably needed as Becky got to be frustrating as she showed minimal growth through the series. Hoping to enjoy this one.
For the first time in forever, I have a very loose TBR. The bottom 2 are my last books for #booked2019. I‘m doing #wintergames and the top book is on my kindle, but I‘m going to hit up my library for more Christmas reads, as well as peruse Amazon for free or low-cost holiday books.
I was very excited to see a new Sophie Kinsella Shopaholic book out in time for Christmas. Disclaimer: I adore the shopaholic series and am pretty sure if Becky Bloomwood was a real person we would be besties! I devoured this book with laughs along the way, it was like a warm Christmassy hug and curling up with a cup of tea and your besty. A must read for anyone who likes chick lit fun books #sophiekinsella #tea_sipping_bookworm #litsy #goodreads
When I first started I wasn‘t sure, I was feeling like maybe I had “out grown” the Shopaholic books BUT that was obviously a dumb thought. As I read I got happier and happier. This certainly isn‘t literature but just a funny, charming story.🎄
I love how Kinsella capitalizes on the chaos of Christmas. We all have our traditions and there are certainly times where I question some of the things I bring upon myself in the spirit of Christmas. It's totally worth it, right?
Becky tugs on my heartstrings—she is endearing, fun, and hilarious (even when she's trying to be serious).
This book is sparkly, festive, and simply delightful. A must holiday read.
Enjoying the latest Becky Brandon nee Bloomwood Story. Nice light read as I gear up to do my own holiday shopping! 😉🎄
