Zhu I hope not. This series needs to end. It was very good... but it needs to end.
Felicia (Little Prairie Library) This series does build on the characters and events from previous books so you would be missing a lot of information if you start with this one.

I had a nightmare where I discovered yet another fucking Shopaholic book underway. ...Oh, wait.

Psst, Ms. Kinsella?

Sophie Kinsella. Finish the fucking series already, stop dragging it out! Just hurry up and solve Luke's problem with his mother. The last book was so unneeded! This series started off like shitty but enjoyable mindless fluff, but now it's JUST shitty and mindless. But by god I'm no quitter! I will finish this series!

So, not going to lie, I adored the first couple of shopaholic books by Sophie Kinsella, then they got a bit meh. The last one was ridiculous and not really necessary, but I'm morbidly curious as to what will happen after the cliffhanger ending and need closure from the series...so....yep.....maybe this will be the last one?!?

*post-read*

4 stars

OK, while not my favorite of the shopaholic series, I did enjoy it...It was definitely better than the last one. It was a quick, fluffy read and I'm happy

This book made me:

1. Smile.
Not Laugh. Smile.
2. Roll my eyes - a lot!!
3. Not like characters I liked before.
4. Rooting against Becky and her crew.
5. Question what other people questioned before me
, and back then I questioned their quetioning. The big question was: Why did Sophie Kinsella wrote another book in the Shopaholic series?
6. Think about how unnecessary this book in the series was.


By the tone at the end of this book I could guess that this was the last book in the Shopaholic series.

It was crystal clear that Becky's going to be back, sooner or later, after the cliff - hanger ending of "Shopaholic to the Stars", and personally I couldn't wait for her return. Everything has been told about Becky already, you can love her or hate her, but there wouldn't be chick - lit without her. And this is why I don't understand this hate - campaign, so many people writing - even without reading the book - that Sophie Kinsella should stop writing the series, and I'm asking, why? Because the

Okay, WHAT? First things first, I looove Shopaholic. It's my go-to comfort. Sick in bed? Day at the beach? Long airplane ride? Nothing else around the house to read? Shopaholic every time. I've read each book countless times. But this one was so different. I read Shopaholic because it's lighthearted fun but with incredibly endearing and likable characters that I've come to know and love. I loove Becky and Luke. I love Suze and Tarquin!

I made it to the end! Woohoo!!!!!

Shopaholic to the Rescue is the eighth and final (I hope) installment in Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series. It's been a long, funny, and annoying journey and I have to admit I'm glad it's over. Not a bad series at all but one can only handle so much Becky Bloomwood. Kinsella ended with a story that felt much different than all the predecessors but one where Becky finally found some surprising but welcomed peace with her excessive shopping. Lots of family issues

I CAN'T WAIT. ♡♡ I love the Shopaholic series and I loved the latest book. If you ask me, Sophie Kinsella could write about Becky until retirement.

UPDATE:
I LOVED IT! Such a fun, exciting, lovely read :)
I kept a very close eye on whether it was "the same Becky", because some reviews said it wasn't. Well, to me, it was her! **SPOILER** But in this book, she first experiences the feeling of not wanting to shop, because of her suppressed guilt towards her friends and family. Which doesn't mean she'

I wish I could give this 3.5 stars.

Becky Bloomwood and a hilarious cast of beloved family and friends (plus one enemy!) set off in a van to find her missing father, last heard from in Las Vegas.

This was miles better than part 7, funnier, and cuter but still not the level that Sophie Kinsella used to write this series. I think it's time that maybe Becky Bloomwood should be done.

Shopaholic to the Rescue is about Becky and her best friend, Suze, dropping everything to search for Becky's dad and Suze's husband Tarquin. They don't go alone due to the whole entire family and friends want to help these two girls as well. Becky is totally out of her element while on this adventure because she's in a motor home, eating at diners in the middle of the desert, and Suze is keeping her distance from Becky during the whole thing. Of course Becky puts on her detective shoes and tries ...more

Sollte es jetzt wirklich keinen 9. Teil mehr geben, und so etwas hat Sophie Kinsella auf ihrer Lesung vor 2 Wochen ja angedeutet, dann war es ein wirklich schönes Ende der Reihe! :) Obwohl ich ja auf den letzten Teil so geschimpft habe, jetzt werde ich doch ein bisschen wehmütig.

Ik heb er van genoten omdat ik in het verleden ook zo heb genoten van de andere Shopaholic boeken. Maar ik merk dat ik Becky en haar avonturen toch wel wat te bizar en een tikje dom en ergerlijk ga vinden. Het zou goed zijn als dit de laatste was.

I'm really disappointed and I can't say how happy I am to be done with this book. it was so boring and ridiculously long. they say that this is the last book in the series maybe this for the best consider the last two were such a huge disappointment for me.

I have been so excited to receive this book today on my Kindle. I have read all of Sophie Kinsella books right from the start and loved this book too.

I could never forget all the character and their amazing and exciting trip to Las Vegas. I can never stop laughing at them all too. I loved this book so much. It took my back so far with memories of reading these book right back to the first ones too. Well done Sophie with this book especially!!

My rating is for the entire series, which I found super enjoyable, fun, and a nice getaway from reality. Becky hasn't always made the best choices, but I believe in this book we see some real maturity, as much maturity as I would want to see from this very engaging character. This book was hilarious a road trip with Becky, her parents, her hubby, her BFF, and her number one enemy Alicia bitch long legs. All I have to say about this book is RV, sheep, pencils, cowboy boots, and Becky 10. Oh yes, ...more

Sophie Kinsella has been one of my favourite authors ever since I first read The Undomestic Goddess donkeys years ago. I have read EVERYTHING she's written, and there's not many authors I can say that of, and I look forward to whatever she brings out - her young adult debut Finding Audrey was astounding. After finishing Shopaholic to the Stars I was dying for the next one, after it ended on such a cliff-hanger, but it's actually taken me until the paperback publication day to read it, because I' ...more

I'll read anything she writes as Sophie Kinsella. And the Shopaholic has been one of my favorite series.

I was disappointed with the last book as I felt it was just a stepping stone to this one. I was afraid with all the "mystery" surrounding Becky's Dad's Secret and the whole built up (it was going on till almost 60% of this book and I guess 30% of the previous one) , I'd be left disappointed.

And in way I was. It would have been a normal plot but the amount of clue searching and importance eve

☺ I was a bit afraid to start reading - there are all those 'fans' out there saying, ugh, another stupid Shopaholic book - Sophie should just stop doing them, they're nothing like they were at the beginning... bla bla...

I loved it .... just like I loved every single one of them!!!
It was adorably funny - the whole lot of them in that RV on the way to Vegas - poor Luke driving - it was hilarious!!!
The only tiny thing I'm always missing a bit, is the Luke/Becky romance part... it's a bit like Sophi

I've read all of the Shopaholic books and this was not one of my favorites. I hadn't read one in quite awhile so it was fun to catch up with Becky and her friends and family. Maybe the series is just played out.

Tegen alle verwachtingen in, vond ik deze wel weer leuk. Boek zeven viel me ontzettend tegen, maar dit achtste deel had weer die shopaholicmagie zónder dat Becky telkens aan het winkelen was, en het staat ook niet zo barstensvol met smoesjes.

They are convinced that Bryce is trying to brainwash Tark and get his money. They are sure that they have been kidnapped and they must find them. Taking out the map of the road trip that Becky's dad took when he was a young man, they go out in a rented RV to find them.

She needs to stop releasing books in this series. She is simply dragging it and because we readers need closure we're gonna read this too and hate it.

2.5*

"Implausible, farfetched, unbelievable" ... These are the words that I would use to describe the plot and characters in this book.

First of all - I think that the author has milked this cash cow to death! There is clearly nothing interesting left to add about Becky and the gang, so the author started writing entire books about random characters now ?!?! Why are we getting a whole book on a random Corey and Brent ?! Yeah, I just read a WHOLE book centered around Becky's dad's college budd

The last book I read in the series was Shopaholic to the Stars and I was so ready to be done with this series, it wasn't even funny. You can see my review
here.

I was so annoyed with Ms. Kinsella for writing a cliffhanger and what I felt was such a disaster of a book I seriously asked myself would I push on through to the last book? I have a thing about finishing things when I start them.

One of the reasons why I cut off a lot of series when they start to go bad is that if I don't, I feel beholden

I love the Shopaholic books. Becky cracks me up, and this book did not disappoint. A helpful tip though: read Shopaholic to the Stars before this one. It'll make more sense.

So this book is about Becky looking for her Dad. He took off and everyone is worried. Suze, Becky's best friend, is also worried because her husband has gone off with Becky's Dad. Becky's Mom and HER best friend Janice are also in a panic. They decide to get an RV so they can drive around and find the men. Along the way adve

There were some elements of the story that I really enjoyed, such as the mystery and how everyone was teaming up to resolve the issue that ran through the story. Becky had some pretty crazy schemes, but she seemed to know what she was doing. I also liked the part where they were in Vegas, as I haven't been there in almost 10 years and it was nice to visualize some of the places again. I enjoyed the dialogue between Becky and Suze, as well.

What didn't work so well was the silliness. Becky wants t

“Why didn't I know about Sedona before? Why did no one tell me? It's breathtaking. It's... indescribable.

Well, all right, not literally indescribable. You can describe it. You can say, There are these huge red sandstone rocks everywhere, jutting up from the desert, making you feel all tiny and insignificant. You can say, There's a kind of rawness to the landscape which gives you goosebumps. You can say, There's a solitary bird of prey hanging above us, high in the sky, which seems to put all of humankind into perspective.

You can say all that. But it's not the same as being there.”
