Book 23/100 for 2015


Like I've said before, I absolutely love Sophie Kinsella's writing style. She creates such strong characters with very different personalities and has them get into the weirdest and funniest situations. I honestly thought I would get bored with this series as I kept reading on, but the opposite is actually true! I can't wait to read the fifth book, Shopaholic & Baby and laugh even more!

Bark's Book Nonsense
These books annoy the heck out of me but for some odd reason I keep reading them.

This time around Becky, the spoiled, materialistic bumble-head is unemployed and married to her sure to be long-suffering lover Luke. They spend the early part of the novel honeymooning around the globe for a year while Becky secretly spends all sorts of dough on silly trinkets and other assorted things (such as two dining room tables!) that Luke doesn't want or need. How the business savvy Luke remains oblivious t
I feel like I SHOULD hate these books by now...they all follow the same pattern of "Becky shops, Becky gets in trouble from shopping, Becky reforms and swears she'll do better." ALL the same. And yet, these books are all so funny and entertaining that I can't put them down. They're excellent for when I want to read something light, because they're well-written and they have such likable characters. I will have a hard time not reading the next one right away. In fact, I might not succeed in that. ...more
By this book, Becky Bloomwood is too annoying to read about. It's the same crap over and over again, and after three books of reading the same jokes, she's no longer funny, she's infuriating. I think that's the problem with this series. Since the main character suffers from an addiction, she's obviously supposed to exhibit the same behavior time after time. But this series is supposed to be funny, and if you hear a joke too many times, it loses its humor. Not only that, but since Becky never sho ...more

Another great addition to the Shopaholic series - Sophie Kinsella once again brings Becky, a quirky but lovable character back into the fray with a wonderful mix of weary world traveling, sisterhood and of course, more shopping!!

We pick Becky up at the end of a 10-month honeymoon with her new hubbie Luke – they’ve been all over the world and Becky’s got a lot of shopping to show for it – but it’s easy – she just buys and has it all shipped home – she’ll worry about where to put it all later! Bec
The typical Becky Bloomwood one chapter she broke my heart and made me laughing so much in the next one. Jess the new addition to the story I like her. Luke I love him but sometimes He annoy me because he seems so clueless . I really loved this book and reading it made my day.
I was nervous when I started reading this one due to many of the negative reviews, but I have to say, I was happily surprised! I just became a fan of the Shopaholic series and I just love Becky & Luke! I really didn't think their relationship was given enough attention in this first book, but it picked up from there and I will have to say the reader really gets to get in deep with their relationship in this book. I have to agree with a previous reviewer who compared Becky to Lucy Ricardo - t ...more
Love Fool
Irresistible, one-woman shopping phenomenon Becky Bloomwood is back in this hilarious, heartwarming, New York Times bestselling tale of married life, best friends, and long-lost sisters (and the perils of simply having to own an Angel handbag!).

Honestly, this was my least favorite of the series butttttt I still enjoyed it. How could you not? We are reading about Becky's amazing life. Add a long-lost sister who is not into clothes, shoes, and handbags, oh my! Well, you are going to get a cute an
I almost passed this along unread.

I started the book, and set it aside shortly afterwards as I remembered my unhappiness with Becky's charecter from Shopaholic takes Manhatten, and Shopaholic Ties the Knot. Then I picked it up and got past my first inital stopping point and wow was I surprised.

Yeah the format was the sam as the other books, Becky gets in over her head with a situatuation, lies to cover it up, then it blows out up to come crashing down around her and a happy reconciliation. But,
The first books were great, simply because they were the first of their kind. Another lovable clueless English woman, ala Bridget Jones. But after four books on the same note, full of Becky's shallow character and stupidity, I just couldn't take it anymore.

The storyline is starting to get a bit old. The plot is basically the same as the previous three Shopaholic books. Becky shops, gets in trouble and is bailed out. The usual. As for the romance - it's still completely unbelievable to me that s
I really enjoyed this one. My favourite since the first and definitely an improvement over the last instalment. In this 4th novel in the Shopaholic series, Becky meets her half sister that she didn't know she had, and to her disappointment, she's her polar opposite.

So, obviously, we meet a new character. I didn't care much for Jess at first. She was a bit... actually no, a Lot extreme. I get she's thrifty and everything, but excited about getting free rotted bananas? Eeek. I did warm up to her

After the ‘not so good’ review I gave Shopaholic ties the Knot, I was rather hesitant to read the next Shopaholic book, which is Shopaholic and Sister. By the third book, all readers following these series know that Becky Bloomwood is an only child, so the title of the fourth book does stir up some curiosity.
Well, to sum up my reaction to this book…..I must declare that KINSELLA IS BACK! The author is just as witty and humorous as the first two Shopaholic novels, and I truly enjoyed reading her
Uniquely Tahira  Namreen
Becky and Luke have been married for ten months and are on honeymoon in Asia when the book opens. Though they have been enjoying themselves, they decide it is time to return to England. Luke immediately goes back into businessman-mode, cutting his hair and donning suits once more. Before returning home, they stop for a brief trip in Milan, where Luke is meeting a potential client. After totaling up the large number of purchases they have accrued during their trip, not to mention the cost of hote ...more
Whew. This book is wonderful. But Becky’s really a bitch in Chapter 10-13. I am so annoyed with her I forgot that she’s the heroine and Jess is just a supporting character or something. Hahaha. I side with her because Jess is fucking right. Damn Becky in this book. I’m so annoyed I wanted to sleep already. But luckily, I decided not to and I slept at around 5 AM today! The fuck. I started reading it at 9 PM and finished reading it at 4 AM. 7 hours! Can you believe it? Because I can’t. Hahahaha. ...more
Sophie Kinsella is one of my favorite authors, and the Shopaholic series my favorite books. . I find them witty, humorous, exciting, and so much fun to read! I personally find Becky to be the perfect blend of silly and intelligent. I find all the characters relatable and I think their flaws make them all the more endearing. Although I am definitely not a shopaholic, I could completely relate to the character and I LOVE Luke and their relationship. I get so into the stories I find myself angry or ...more

Another book in the shopaholic series. Vol. 4. From the get-go I thought the idea of the book was a bit out there. After three okay books this fourth one stinks! Becky and Luke returns home from their honeymoon and immediately, Becky starts trouble - she has once again overspend and the appartment is stuffed with all kinds of things she's picked up during their ten months of travelling. On top of it all, she finds out she has a half sister who's completely different from her, for one thing the s ...more
What the fuck?


Oh my god, I just get increasingly ANGRY at her inability to be ration for more than two seconds. I don't understand how this woman is supposedly an adult. How long does it take to figure out that LYING and HIDING STUFF never is a good idea? Especially when she does it?

This girl just doesn't learn. Maybe I just hate when people unnecessarily lie to their partners and best friends.

And I am totally pissed at
The shopaholic titles are silly, romantic, celebrate friendship, miscommunication, and communication, uh, did I say silly? Lots of silly.

There could be a cautionary tale in the pages, with Bloomswood optimism, per shopping addiction, but the books are ultimately about being ones self. Am I being too optimistic? Okay, I'm addicted, not to shopping, but to this series!

Stop the presses! I actually--liked this--as a book! I thought it was funny and sweet. After hating Shopaholic Ties the Knot so much, this was a shock, but it's by far my favorite Shopaholic book, even more so than the first. I'm glad I got this one out of the library at the same time at "Knot" or I would have probably stopped after that clunker.

Adding a super-frugal character to the mix was a brilliant move on Sophie Kinsella's part. Jess provides much-needed balance to Becky, and I like that
God, now I just want to go shopping so badly... Becky and I could be great friends.
Another one I've forgotten to add to add to my read list, shame on me.

Anyway, I again rather liked this book, but then Becky can't help but make just about any situation fun. Now was you can probably guess she discovers she has a sister and is immediately dreaming of the shopping they will do together and the great bond the will have instantly have. Of course no one can like shopping as much as she does and thus she is doomed to be disappointed which makes it all the more interesting.

So all thi
Zum Inhalt: Luke und Rebecca Brandon kehren nach zehn Monaten aus ihren Flitterwochen zurück und alles scheint sich verändert zu haben. Suze hat eine neue beste Freundin und Rebecca hat auf einmal eine Schwester, die völlig anders ist als sie. Sie fühlt sich einsam und hilflos, denn auch ihre Ehe beginnt zu kriseln.

Meine Meinung: Rebecca fällt leider immer wieder in dieselben Verhaltensmuster zurück, was ich ein wenig schade finde, doch plötzlich verändert sich was im Laufe des Buches und am End
Shopaholic & Sister, the fourth book in the Shopaholic series, was a good light read. Becky Brandon (Bloomwood) is back from her honeymoon and she discovers that everyone has moved on in her absence. It seems her husband is back to his workaholic ways, her best friend Suze has made a new friend and her parents are hiding a huge secret! Soon Becky discovers she has a sister and the hilarity begins. Becky is determined to get to know her long-lost family member despite their differences and th ...more
I don't know if I can say how much I am glad that I am finished with these 4 books! I think I said it in the book reviews for each of the other 3, and I'll say it again: THIS GIRL MAKES ME CRAZY!

Sure, there are some entertaining things in these books, and the whole sister thing is like a Lucille Ball show, but her lying and shopping make my stomach hurt. Literally. As I read each of these books, I actually felt concern for the predicaments she was getting into!

Several people have said they didn'
Becky Bloomwood is finally married to Luke Brandon and after a 10-month honeymoon the pair decide it's finally time to head home and Becky decides to not tell anyone they're returning and instead leave it as a surprise. It's Becky that's in for a surprise though when her parents start acting weirdly and best friend Suze reveals she may well have found herself a new best friend. Becky's parents finally admit what is wrong with them and it turns out Becky has a sister named Jess. To Becky that mea ...more

Becky Bloomwood ist glücklich verheiratete Brandon. Als sie von ihrer gemeinsamen Hochzeitsreise wieder kommen, ahnt Becky noch nicht, welche Überraschung sie erwartet: Aus einer früheren Liebelei ihres Vaters hat sie plötzlich eine Halbschwester. Und auch Suze hat sich freundschaftlich komplett anders orientiert. Zudem steckt Becky dann auch noch in einer Ehekrise und ihr Leben droht zu kippen…


Natürlich ist Kinsella eine gewisse humoristische Ader nicht abzusprechen,

This was another one of my ill-advised, just-grab-something library books. Seriously, this woman is the worst writer. I think the worst thing about it is there's all this stuff where it's like, she's making up all these things that are supposed to be ultra-fashionable, and the stuff she makes up is hideous -- a huge plot point of the book is a calfskin bag (wait, it gets worse) with a resin handle, a painting of an angel on one side, and the angel's name done in rhinestones. I'm sorry, that soun ...more
Once again, another great story in the Shopaholic series! Becky's sparky, funny and light personality is a great contrast to her half-sister, Jess's quiet and reserved personality. I was intrigued in the story because of their completely different interests! Sophie's ending to the book was exciting and funny. So far, I have really enjoyed reading about Becky and her shopping obsession. Can't wait to read the next one!
So far I hate this book. This is the most selfish, most shallow character I have ever read about. This Becky Whatever is why the world is an awful place - because she is self absorbed and doesn't care about anyone else but herself. I will finish this book in the hopes that it has any redeeming message. But it is not worth the paper wasted on it.

It is telling that this character exists in the the era of lots of credit card abuse and these types of people are the reason why the world is in a near
I struggled through this installment of the "shopaholic" series because I was getting so frustrated with the main character! I enjoyed the first book (and am clearly not reading them in order), and started to find it difficult to like the main character, who has a full blown shopping addiction! She has just gotten married, and I have to say, I know couples whose finances have led to divorce, especially when one partner has a shopping I was stressing out reading about the main char ...more

“Me too." I agree fervently. "Every film should definitely have a message."

Which is true. I mean... take the Lord of the Rings movies- they've got loads of messages. Like "Don't lose your ring.”
“Ciao," I say casually, and flick my hair back. "Si. Ciao."

I could so be Italian. Except I might have to learn a few more words.”
