With over seven million copies of her beloved books in print, Sophie Kinsella is a true phenomenon. Now, after nearly two years without a hilarious new Shopaholic novel, here’s Becky...and baby!
Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) is pregnant! She couldn’t be more overjoyed–especially since discovering that shopping cures morning sickness. Everything has got to be perfect for her baby: from the designer nursery...to the latest, coolest pram...to the celebrity, must-have obstetrician.
But when the celebrity obstetrician turns out to be her husband Luke’s glamorous, intellectual ex-girlfriend, Becky’s perfect world starts to crumble. She’s shopping for two...but are there three in her marriage?
From the Compact Disc edition.
I think I could have written a series of books on being a Shopaholic, but British author Sophie Kinsella had beat me to it. In 2000, she had her big hit novel, the first in the Shopaholic series.....The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic. The great irony is that the book's main character is Becky Bloomwood, who is a financial journalist who should be giving sensible money spending and saving advice. However, she loves to shop, and is hopeless with money! It struck a nerve with many readers around the world. The other books in the series are: Shopaholic Abroad (Shopaholic Takes Manhattan), Shopaholic Ties the Knot, Shopaholic and Sister, Shopaholic and Baby, Mini Shopaholic, Shopaholic to the Stars, and Shopaholic to the Rescue. Her first novel in the series was produced as a movie by Disney as, Confessions
of a Shopaholic.
Other books she has written include: Can You Keep a Secret?, The Undomestic Goddess, Remember Me?, Twenties Girl, I've Got Your Number, Wedding Night, My Not So Perfect Life, and Surprise Me. Her latest work is I Owe You, which is described as being empowering.
Sophie lives in London with her husband, Henry Wickham, four sons and a daughter.
This book is the same as the rest...not great, but good enough to read cover to cover. It moves quickly and has its share of funny moments. Ths shopaholic formula remains the same and I am figuring out the plot faster with each book this one probally took about 20 pages. I still keep reading though and I will read the next as well.
Another great read in Shopaholic series. Hope there is a sequel to this one. Quick read.
