    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 w 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 only half of the charm and a less endearing romance story I wanted Becky to have grown up a bit and have learned from her previous mistakes instead of making all of them over again in the second book Of course, the author had to find a way to give the readerof what they loved about the first book, but I just felt like Becky learned nothing the first time around In this installment, Becky has a great job as a financial advisor on a London morning talk show, which she is very good at Her romance with successful and gorgeous entepreneur Luke Brandon is going places Unfortunately, she still has a teeny tiny problem with overspending which could potentially ruin everything she has worked so hard to gain.There are truly some laugh out loud moments in this book, and not just the cliched chick lit awkward moments Becky s faux pas are unique, hilarious, and could only happen to her Sometimes I couldn t help but feel sorry for her, though, because she shows many signs of a person with a true shopping addiction She hides her purchases from family and friends, she doesn t remember anything she buys, and she definitely doesn t have the funds to support her habit I was starting to think it might be time for her to seek professional help Then other times, I was just so frustrated with her She has an amazing, fun job that she excels at, and a great boyfriend, supportive friends, awesome parents, and she placesimportance on designer clothing than any of that and even risks losing it all for the perfect pair of clementine heels.I thought the romance fell flat in this one, even though I loved Becky and Luke in the first book I know it s not as dynamic since the two were already a couple, and that can t be helped, but I just found myself forgetting why they ever fell for each other in the first place.Overall, this book was a fun, satisfying escape By the end I was ready to find my copy of Shopaholic Ties the Knot so I could see what happens to Becky and Luke But I really hope Becky tries to change for the better at least a little Reviewed for

    I tried, I really did but I couldn t get past the first chapter and knowing that there are, what, 3 4books 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 looke I tried, I really did but I couldn t get past the first chapter and knowing that there are, what, 3 4books 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 books on my quite full shelf and decided that I just couldn t waste anytime with Shopaholic

    Well I am also a bit of a shopaholic and when I go on a trip, I also have big trouble selecting clothes and always end up hauling a too big and heavy suitcase to the airport So yeah, this topic is familiar to me Walking into a shoeshop and having to resist takingthan one set of shoes with me out of the shop And also, I love New York This all made this book entertaining for me, but I have to say, on the other hand, it doesn t get anyinteresting along the way and it s not r Well I am also a bit of a shopaholic and when I go on a trip, I also have big trouble selecting clothes and always end up hauling a too big and heavy suitcase to the airport So yeah, this topic is familiar to me Walking into a shoeshop and having to resist takingthan one set of shoes with me out of the shop And also, I love New York This all made this book entertaining for me, but I have to say, on the other hand, it doesn t get anyinteresting along the way and it s not really a challenge Predictable it is too You know how it s gonna end up any way don t you And the story about this intelligent business woman being so utterly irrational when it comes to clothes does go a bit far for me However, 3 stars because it was an entertaining, funny book for me and because it s a nice light book going on holiday to destress and a nice change from the darker themes of for example Cormac McCarthy There you go, that s my review Guess I may readshopaholics in the future, but not sure yet

    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 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 aggravating, infuriating and unlikeable that at page 120, I needed time off from her just so she doesn t rub off on me and then I m tempted to kick her around Which, unfortunately, is impossible It just makes me so furious that after everything in book one, she s still digging herself into a financial hole out of her inability to use common sense wasn t she bankrupt in book one Why the hell do you buy your friend cushions when you re receiving letters from banks about overdue payments There s a sick and deep need in this GIRL to be accepted by someone or something, and it s leading her to act completely immature that it s not at all endearing If Sophie Kinsella was addressing the dangers of living beyond your means, congratulations to her I got the message.Rebecca doesn t deserve to have a job or live in a posh or close to flat Or even be allowed to have credit card extensions or whatever What is that teaching people That you can dick around with money but still be able to be GIVEN money by a financial institution to afford a 50 hat Sophie should ve bankrupt this silly child completely such that she d be trying to dig herself out of the financial mess for years on end, just to teach her a friggin lesson that she would never forget That would have been real enough I have an urge to burn this book

    It s like leading an alcoholic to all the best hidden bars Oh, Becky I liked this one eventhan the first A funny, engaging series with a heroine who has zero self control when it comes to spending money she doesn t have Cringe worthy at times but written with entertainment in mind and well meaning underlying themes.

    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.
