Look, I love the Shopaholic series, I do. The first five books are fantastic. They may not be the most intellectually stimulating books in the world and Becky shows near no character development, but they're just so freaking fun, I don't care.

Then came Mini Shopaholic, which is a blatant attempt to drag out Becky's story and continue making money off of a series that should've ended at book 5. And now this.

I'll read it, but Kinsella?

I love you and your books very, very much, but stop trying to

When I read #6 aka Mini Shopaholic, I already was feeling a tad tired of Becky's ridiculous antics but just for old times sake, I went to buy #7 on the day it was released. (It also doesn't help I have books #1-6.)

If you think Mini shopaholic is bad, then this would probably be worse. She was rude, selfish, and inconsiderate to Luke, Suze and her Dad. The Becky in previous novels was big-hearted, and I could forgive her for being a ditz cos she is KIND. But in this book, you don't see much of h

Am I the only one that is really excited about this book? I mean, I know it'a a lot, but 'Mini Shopaholic' kind of came to an end that needed another book to proceed it, but it really is matter of opinion. Personally, I am looking SO forward to this book, you don't understand. I remember when I checked on various sites beforehand and they all said 'maybe' or 'no' to the 7th book... and here it is! I really like long series of books, maybe because I get to relish the joy of reading it longer lol ...more

I have really enjoyed the Shopaholic series, they're witty and fun. Sadly this book fell short of the mark. It was simply tedious, with ridiculous, self-centered and juvenile characters, and very little story content. But worst of all - just when you think you're getting to the end of the book, you find absolutely nothing is resolved. In fact the few sub-plots evident in the story are left wide open for a sequel to follow (whenever). That was really disappointing. The book was a lot about nothin ...more
You know when your coworker gets a promotion at work and all of a sudden they're super important, walking around strutting their peacock feathers? (yeah, I'm totally not jaded.) Well, this is what happens to Becky when she and Suze get attention from some of L.A.'s famed celebrities. Suddenly, she has a new career, her own (unjustified) security team, and a very self-centered outlook. She needs, she needs, she needs. Still with quite the obsessive personality, everything becomes about her and he ...more

Disappointed to the core. I am getting fed up of Becky's character. So much that it makes me wonder why the people around her love her that much?? The plot is monotonous. Not many changes from the prequel. But that's not what I am complaining about. Her reckless spending, irresponsible behaviour have no room for improvement. She has to be immature and idiotic if she is Becky!! She has to keep messing up. Of course Luke, Suze and her parents will clear it up for her. All along the book she whines ...more

Oh boy. I read the majority of previous Shopaholic installments a few years back, over the span of a couple of months, and got to be really quite fond of the foibles and shortcomings of Becky Bloomwood/Brandon. Granted, they were all essentially mindless, easy reads and ultimately forgettable (I got a good 50-100 pages into Mini Shopaholic on holiday last year before realising I'd already read it), but I was still looking forward to the release of Shopaholic to the Stars, catching up with Becky ...more

I know the eighth book of this series would come...Kinsella is a name big enough that the publishers would give it to her...specially since book 7 was ended with the intention of there being a next in line...and I know I would read the next one too...for I am one of those who makes sure she finishes a series when she starts one (why else did I read the last of Twilight...or am sticking to The Clifton Chronicles when Archer is going on increasing it from a 3 book to 5 to now heard 7 book series). ...more

It's all so funny and cute and ridiculous and amazing.
I just wish Sophie would put 5% more Romance into it... poor Luke is not really happening in those books and he's the best part!!!
Just a bit more kissing and cuddling and Luke being Luke ... that's what I want for book #8 ☺

It’s like she’s had Botox of the soul.

I’m always excited about a new shopaholic book. It’s the perfect easy read and a good laugh. The latest instalment was no exception. I laughed out loud several times and enjoyed catching up with Becky. Long time no see, and all that.

Shopaholic to the stars fits the usual pattern for a shopaholic novel: Becky shops too much, lies to herself, loses grip on the important things, fights with Luke, fights with Suze, makes up with Luke, makes up with Suze,
I'm sorry but what was the hook in this book? I mean, she spent an entire chapter discussing the pressure issues of a fountain, really? The plot was so boring I couldn't bring myself to finish it. After so many books in the series there's no originality and not much entertainment. I wish Sophie applied her Genius to writing original stand-alone novels.

Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) has stars in her eyes. She and her daughter, Minnie, have joined husband Luke in LA—city of herbal smoothies, multimillion-dollar yoga retreats, and the lure of celebrity. Luke is there to help manage the career of famous actress Sage Seymour—and Becky is convinced she is destined to be Sage’s personal stylist, and go from there to every A-list celebrity in Hollywood! But things become complicated when Becky joins the team of Sage’s archrival.

I don't know what to say...I think I am agreeable with a lot of people on here. I have loved all of the shopaholic series up to book 5, but unfortunately they started to go way down hill after that. I am one who, once I start a book I have to finish it, but I was really struggling with this one.

I love Kinsella's stand-alone books. The Undomestic Goddess made me laugh so hard I cried, so I feel that maybe Kinsella needs to retire Becky Brandon nee Bloomwoodand start concentrating on other charact

My sister has listened to these on audio and has recommended this series to me. My mother-in-law had this one lying around at the beach house, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to give it a try. There were some laugh out loud moments, but also some eye-rolling going on. I see that a lot of reviews say that this is the worst book in the series, which means that I will definitely give the rest of them a chance. Reminiscent of Bridget Jones these are perfect for escapism during the ...more

The shopaholic books have always been fun to read. They usually make me laugh out loud and this one was no exception BUT I think there needs to be some maturity and character development. To put it bluntly Becky needs to grow up. Her silliness was kind of laughably endearing for the first books but now she just seems rude and self centered. She has a wonderful long-suffering husband, supportive parents and an adorable daughter plus likeable friends. I sometimes wonder why they put up with her. I ...more

Kinsella has managed to surprise me again as I now move into unchartered territory. After re-reading the previous books in the series, I was excited to read a new Becky Bloomwood adventure. However, it was with trepidation that I picked this one up: could Kinsella keep the story different, or would it be too similar to its six predecessors? Answer: Kinsella has done it again and kept me interested in a very different story…

Ugh, this series has to end. Becky Bloomwood Brandon may have been cute and funny when the series started, but she is now an irritating, clueless, and vapid airhead. I could only read this book for 20-30 minutes at a time because I would just get so irritated. Yes, I could have just quit reading it altogether, but I kept hoping it would pick up at some point.

Please Sophie Kinsella, put this series to bed!! No more!!

Hanging out with Becky and her crew is always the time well spent.
This book wasn't exception.
I had a blast reading about new adventures that our protagonist got herself into.

Becky and Luke have moved to Hollywood and while Luke is representing one famous actress, Becky is chasing her dream to become a famous stylist.
While making her dream come true, Becky is changing, people around her are changing too.

Becky has became even more egocetric and a lot of fingers are pointed at her. Even though she

Becky is back and just as fashion fantastic as ever before! When Luke and Becky Brandon move to LA with daughter Minnie, Becky naturally sets her sights on fame, fortune and best of all… fashion! I mean, this is Hollywood, isn’t it?!
But real life is never as glossy as the pages of a magazine.
Is this really the lifestyle Becky wants? And with feuds forming between her family and friends, what’s the price she’ll have to pay to make her dreams come true?

I still can't believe it happened but we are finally back into Becky's world! Mini shopaholic came out in 2010, four years lair, we finally get a sequel that also ends in a cliff hanger so i'm crossing my fingers for an 8th book! The Shopaholic series isn't my favorite by Sophie Kinsella.. and I pretty much read all the books under this name. However, getting back into Becky's world (I reread mini shopaholic before picking this up) has reminded me of the reason why I tolerate Becky an

-Becky you really got on my nerves in this book...selfish opportunist user are the right words. and another thing, Becky's shopping and clothes and all that was barely in this book...its generally one of my fave parts, her outfit descriptions etc. The book lacked the "shopaholic" bit of the series

I can't believe I'm giving this book so low a rating and I hate that I feel like I can't score it higher. I read "Confessions of a Shopaholic" over 10 years ago and loved it so much that I've re-read three times since then. That book got me hooked on the chick lit genre and I became a big fan of all of Sophie Kinsella's novels. I was so excited to read this new book in the Shopaholic series.

This is my first read of the series, although I have watched the movie adaptaion of the Confession of a Shopaholic.
To be honest, I really had a hard time reading till two third of the book. Quite a number of times I was contemplating whether to give up. Had I given up, the rating definitely would have been a 2 stars; but I continued and found the latter third to be interesting, thus the rating was upgraded to a 3 stars.
However, I doubt whether I'll read anymore of this series; it is not my cup

After reading all the other Shopaholic books, at least five times each, I think I've had enough of Becky..GASP, did I write that??? I own all of Sophie's books. While this one was good, it isn't my favorite of hers. Becky lies and is OCD and selfish and Luke and Suze and her family let her get away with all of it. ENOUGH. Yes, I will read the next one in this series, but I really think Becky has run the course...

There's a 7th book.Really ??
I don't why this series is continuing,but GREAT 'coz these book are very funny.
Becky seems back to her annoying self with the shops but the shops are the least of her problem when she gets her head set on being a Hollywood stylist. From the start I didn't think the story focused enough on Luke and Minnie and how Becky wanted a sibling for her. That seems to have been forgotten.

The story however features heavily on Becky's dad and he is a mystery from the secret daughter to disappearing.

Having not read a Shopaholic book in ages, the comforting nostalgia of this was AMAZING...but why was everyone an utter cretin in this? Honestly, not one likeable character in here. Everyone was their usual flawed self, but minus the kind-heartedness that they all had that made their flaws a little more foregiveable. And yet Sophie Kinsella had to end this on a cliffhanger so Lord knows I'm gonna have to read the next one because regardless of what a bunch of bitches everyone was, I am trash for ...more
