  • A very pleasant read Jan 15, 2009

    I liked this a lot. It was an easy read, with lots of witty humor.

    I just knew that they would make it into a movie eventually. I just didn't realize it would be this soon. I look forward to seeing the movie!

  • Shopaholic is a Hit! Sep 3, 2008
    by Norabee

    I must admit that I got a little bit edgy as I started to read this book. Past due bills, maxed-out credit cards - who wants to be reminded?? But then the story took over and I fell for Becky Bloomwood - our heroine and financial journalist. She's fashionably fabulous and just like her, who can resist a good sale? I loved the "Brit-speak" and found myself calculating the currency exchange between pounds and dollars - just another little thrill to go along with this funny story.

    I enjoyed myself right along with her as she goes about discovering the best deals and felt my own heart skip when she receives the bills and the overdue notices. It was nice not having to read anything like that with MY name on it - and that's part of the fun too - you can escape the bad stuff and really enjoy the good. It's a lot of fun reading along and wondering if she'll ever learn her lesson.

    Along with the shopping mania, Becky finds love - in the handsome and smart public relations company owner - Luke Brandon. Right away, you wonder if he's a possible love interest - she doesn't seem that interested at first, but they meet and meet again and you ride right along with the possibility that they just might get together. You get to know her parents, their neighbors, childhood friends, her roommate and a whole cast of characters that build up the story and keep it very interesting.

    This book is full of relationships that don't get too heavy, but add just the right snap. This book "goes down nice & easy" and I enjoyed it very much. It's nice when you first discover an author for yourself and are immediately drawn into the characters. I'm halfway through the next installment in the "Shopaholic" series and can't wait for more. I definitely give this book BOTH "thumbs up"!

    This book is hilarious! With a big spender like Becky, there are no problems that she cannot deal with and solve!

  • Loved the series! Aug 17, 2007

    I have really enjoyed the characters and situations of the Shopaholic series. The books are a good, fun read, but not so predictable as to be boring. I ended up buying the series twice more for two different friends who love to read as well.

    This book is so funny and so much fun! Especially if you are a true shopaholic at heart (which unfortunately I am). This is such an easy read, very fun. I loved it so much I bought the sequels! Shopaholic Takes Manhatten, Ties the Knot, Sister, Baby. All amazing I finished the whole series in about 2 weeks!
    Absolutely recommend!
