Mini Shopaholic: A Novel | Sophie Kinsella
post image
Mehso-so

Finishing this one wrapped up one of my challenges for 2019. That said, I didn‘t really enjoy it. I had quit this series years before but continued to enjoy the author‘s other work. I think Becky‘s charm has worn off for me and her bad qualities have gotten worse. I still plan to finish the series sometime.

wanderinglynn I agree. Becky‘s antics were charming at first. But then after so many books, it ceased be charming and it was more like grow up. Her lack of character development is what failed for me. 3d
MallenNC @wanderinglynn Yes! In the first few books she seemed to learn from her mistakes and she was resourceful. It‘s been years since I stopped this series so it was jarring when she was worse than ever in this one. A lot of her issues would be avoided if she were honest with herself and others. 3d

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

The Undomestic Goddess | Sophie Kinsella

#Celebration makes me think of food, which made me think of Kinsella's novel because its title was influenced by Nigella Lawson's cookbook.

Picture shows German edition I intend to give to a friend this Yule. The title translates to Goddess in Wellingtons.

Avanders This was such a fun book ☺️ 2w
Megabooks Is the word for Wellington‘s a German brand name (like Wellington‘s) or is it a generic term for all outdoor boots? For some reason I‘m very curious! 2w
julesG @Megabooks Erm?! It's the British word for rubber boots that I learned. 2w

julesG @Megabooks BTW, German doesn't have a generic term, we just call them rubber boots. 2w
MaGoose I'm going out on a limb here to say that in English, Wellingtons has passed from being a brand name to a generic name for rubber boots. Just like Kleenex for facial tissues or Google for doing an internet search. 2w
julesG @MaGoose Thanks. That's what I was trying to say. And I was Aldo thinking of Kleenex, and Hoover. 😸 2w
marleed I loved reading this thread because I‘ve always thought the word wellies was such a fun term so much happier on a cloudy, rainy day than, ‘Be sure to wear your rubber boots.‘ 2w
Megabooks So the German word wasn‘t once a brand is what I‘m trying to ask? Maybe I wasn‘t clear. It just translates as rubber boots? I always thought galoshes were the same as Wellies, but a more American term. But apparently galoshes fit over your existing shoes, and wellies are generally shoes on their own. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2w
julesG @Megabooks Right. The German term just translates as rubber/gum boots. 2w
