Shopaholic on Honeymoon
As readers of the Shopaholic series will know, I have never described Becky and Luke's honeymoon, which happens after they get married in Shopaholic Ties the Knot. So as a free update for Shopaholic fans, I have decided to share with you one of the adventures of the newly-wed Becky and Luke. I hope you enjoy it! Love Sophie x
The new Mr and Mrs Brandon are on honeymoon, and ...more
It was nice to hang out with Becky and Luke again. Becky was funny and selfish as always and it was an enjoyable read.
However, since this story started with the chapter title "Venice" I expected to read about their adventures somewhere else as well.
Reaching the end I had a feeling someone ripped off pages and I didn't get the whole story. The fact that I've read it on my kindle is the only thing that proves me I actually read the whole piece.
I missed this couple! I read the entire series several years ago and I loved it!
Whenever I need a good laugh, I like to revisit one of her books.( I really recommend I've Got Your Number , not a part of this series but it's my favorite by her).
Becky and Luke are on honeymoon and Becky really knows how to drive him crazy! Poor Luke..
No need to say that this novella was really funny and cute!
It was so short (53 pages), but free on Amazon and iBooks! Recommended to fans of this series! ...more
Much comic than what's expected. Full of fun and and amazing read. Sophie Kinsella made me love this book and I would definitely read more from this series and rest from her.
Humorous one. She made good use of the personification as well. Few quotes were too good to read again and again and Laugh as much as you can. Like;
"here we are in LA. The home of celebrities. They’re the local natural phenomenon. Everyone knows you come to LA to see the celebrities, like you go to Sri Lanka to ...more
This is a short freebie. Part of the Shopaholic Series
I just adore the shopaholic series. This one takes place right after Shopaholic Ties the Knot and takes place on Becky and Luke’s honeymoon. This is a short story (about 28 pages) and was written because there was a gap between Shopaholic Ties the Knot and Shopaholic and Sister. Of course, in this story, Becky is back to her humorous antics buying anything in her visual field. Kinsella really knows how to write a ...more
Well, if this short story is anything to go by I was right!
I didn't like this at all - what an annoying vacuous person?! And the story consisted of nothing at all except little scenes that were supposed to be funny (obviously I didn't get it).
Not for me I'm afraid - the best Kinsella book is which is in the chick lit genre too and is witty, moving and not ...more
While it doesn't add anything new to the series, it's a quick read that fans of Sophie Kinsella will enjoy.
This is a short story set right after the wedding between Luke and Becky. It is set in Venice and they are on their year-long honeymoon.
I loved that Becky is still Becky. She purchases an expensive art set and she does not know how to draw. Her artistic abilities are in her desire for the art set.
Luke is also Luke in the sense that he decides he can't take a whole year as his business requires him to return.
I enjoyed reading this snippet in their honeymoon and it reminded ...more
This was cute but not necessary. I would recommend reading this if you are a fan of the series and have a short commute or ...more
Ok i'll be honest this short story don't bring anything to the story and you don't need it to understand what's going on BUT if you love Becky you'll definitely want to read it just so you can laugh at our favorite shopaholic. Now i understand why she had so many packages waiting when they came back from their honeymoon!
This series just can't do anything wrong! I loved it. It was extremely short but funny and cute. Yeah - I would've loved a bit more Luke-iness - but it was great. I just wish that the next full book will have more Luke & Brandon Romance in it!

A very average read in my opinion. I didn't realise that this short story was part of a series in the first place, so that's why I found it hard to connect to Becky and Luke and I couldn't really assess their characters. Overall it was cute as the couple were on their honeymoon in Venice and some parts did make me smile slightly, however Becky kinda got on my nerves due to how childish she can be. I didn't personally like it when ...more
This would have been so much better if it was a longer novella and documented some of the different places the characters visited on their honeymoon and the highlights from those, rather than just 20-odd pages based in Venice and no more. It's still an okay read, I just think it could have been so much be ...more
Until today, I still can't understand what's on Becky mind (even though this series pretty hilarious and "In Vietnam" in this novella could made me smile). She was a luckiest person on the universe, me think :p
