BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Sophie Kinsellas Shopaholic to the Stars.Becky Bloomwood has a fabulous flat in Londons trendiest neighborhood, a troupe of glamorous socialite friends, and a closet brimming with the seasons must-haves. The only trouble is, she cant actually afford itnot any of it. Her job writing at Successful Saving magazine not only bores her to tears, it doesnt pay much at all. And lately Beckys been chased by dismal letters from the bankletters with large red sums she cant bear to read. She tries cutting back. But none of her efforts succeeds. Her only consolation is to buy herself something . . . just a little something. Finally a story arises that Becky actually cares about, and her front-page article catalyzes a chain of events that will transform her lifeand the lives of those around herforever. Praise for Sophie Kinsella and Confessions of a Shopaholic A hilarious tale . . . hijinks worthy of classic I Love Lucy episodes . . . too good to pass up.USA Today Kinsellas Bloomwood is plucky and funny. . . . You wont have to shop around to find a more winning protagonist.People If a crme brle could be transmogrified into a book, it would be Confessions of a Shopaholic.The Star-Ledger A have-your-cake-and-eat-it romp, done with brio and not a syllable of moralizing. . . . Kinsella has a light touch and puckish humor.Kirkus Reviews

I was a bit of a shopaholic this weekend (and I never am!) Not only did I buy new clothes for a wedding next weekend, but I got some great bookish items that I know Littens will appreciate! A letter box for all the #LitsyLove and #JB mail I've been getting, more candles from Waxspurts, some fancy pens, and this adorable stationery portfolio with a clipboard and lined paper inside. Can't wait to use it at a big meeting I have coming up on Tuesday!

I thought of Becky Bloomwood immediately for #MyFavoriteMistake ...she‘s always bumbling around, getting into hysterical situations, one of which is her first encounter with Luke Brandon. I read the first several in this series in my 20s, and I really want to get back to them. #LilithJuly

Book_ish I miss this series! These were the first books that made me hysterically laugh out loud! 5mo
Librarybelle I know what you mean, @Book_ish ! 5mo
Cinfhen I loved these books when I was just starting to read again for pleasure. Becky was hilarious and I think I read until after the wedding. It would be fun to revisit Becky & Luke 💕 (edited) 5mo

This book is terrible, I would actively encourage people not to read it. I know it's meant as a light and fun read in which the lead character recognizes the error of her ways, but too much time is spent focusing on the main character's material obsession. The book makes light of severe shopping addition and doesn't spend enough time on treatment.

This was a wonderful read! It was fun, cute, fast-paced, and oh so relatable. The story is about Rebecca, a financial journalist, who happens to be in debt and addicted to shopping. Her attempts at saving money are hilariously told. I give this book a 4.5/5 stars. It was a quick and fun read and i recommend it to women of any age, but i really don't know if men would like it....unless youre a man who loves fashion.

CherylG There are more books in this series, too! 1y

I wish there was a choice between pick and so-so.

But it was humorous and a fast read so I think it airs on the side of pick for me. I don‘t know if I will read any of the others in the series, but it was a fairly enjoyable fluffy read.

RavenLovelyReads I agree! There should be an in between- maybe a like it, love it, and didn‘t like? 1y
Andrew65 I often think there should be an option between pick and so-so. 1y
KatieCarpenter @Andrew65 indeed! But I‘ll just work with what I have for now. @RavenLovelyReads Oh that‘d be nice :) but I have to say that I do like the so so option for books that I‘m sort of iffy on. Lol 😂 1y
TheSpineView So agree that there should be more options. My system is if I rate it 4 or 5 stars it is a pick for me. 2 to 3 stars is so-so and bail is 1 star.🤔 1y

I felt this book was really hard to get into at first. It was causing me anxiety actually , maybe because I‘m a shopaholic at times. But once I was halfway through, I couldn‘t put it down! It's cute, it's heartwarming, and it made me laugh. What more can you ask for in chicklit?

Mehso-so

This was a very fast read. Yes, another re-read for me. But this was different than I remembered. It felt very rom-com to me and it was almost stereotypical the way Becky was portrayed. In the end, I'm glad I took the chance to read this again because I am able to see how I've grown as a reader, and there's something satisfying about that.

I have a few literary sins: 1. I totally judge books by their covers, 2. I buy books that sit in the TBR pile for years/ages, and 3. I hate lending out my books. Congratulations to MatchlessMarie on her 1,000 followers, and thank you for creating the giveaway #1Kgiveaway !

CatLass007 What genres do you prefer? Urban fantasy- try Mercy Thompson. Crime/detective- try Bosch and the Lincoln Lawyer. 2y
CatLass007 More Urban Fantasy- Harry Dresden. 2y

WanderingBookaneer @CatLass007 : I don‘t think I‘ve read urban fantasy before. 2y
CatLass007 I really enjoy both of the urban fantasy series that I named. If you like strong female characters and enjoy fantasy, Mercy Thompson is a great series. Mercy is a shape shifter who turns into a coyote. There are also werewolves, vampires, fae and witches. The narrator for Mercy Thompson is wonderful. 2y
CatLass007 James Marsters, who played Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Is the narrator for the Harry Dresden series. Harry Dresden is the only wizard listed in the Chicago phone directory and helps the Chicago PD solve certain crimes. There are also many other supernatural creatures in this series. Marsters starts out slow in his narration but gets better as the book progresses. 2y
Lindy I loved the audiobook 2y
WanderingBookaneer @CatLass007 : I fear you‘ve given me two new obsessions. Mercy sounds right up my alley and I‘d love to hear anything read by Marsden. 2y
CatLass007 Join the club! 2y
