If you're looking for a book that gives food for thought, keep on going. However, if you're looking for a fun book to listen while commuting or doing chores, you've found it.
All the Shopaholic books are complete fluff - but they're great fluff. I enjoyed every minute of them.
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Books outside HOT genre = books given to me to review
The narrator is perfect. I always enjoy Kinsella's quick, dry wit. I've yet to read a book that is not clever and sharp. She is one of the few authors that can actually draw me in and make me 'feel' what her characters feel.
I hate spoilers so I will be general...the most interesting was Becky's attempts to reverse her fortunes in the shopping department. The most frustrating was her attitude that she could shop and shop with expectations that the bank or credit card should up her limit - I actually had to take a break listening to her entitlement attitude....but further along she redeemed herself.
The airport near the end.
Becky-she IS the Shopaholic!
I'm a married, 35 year old. No children. I work in local government in a community outreach capacity. I have a BA in Sociology and an MPA in Water Resource Management.
I think the audio edition of this Shopaholic book was better than the print version. I LOVE hearing the British accent and inflection. It really helps when you're reading about quid, the loo, and pounds!
I love Becky's lack of realism. So many of us live our lives so seriously, and this book is truly a fun read and an escape from reality.
I love Emily Gray. Her voice is EXACTLY how I picture Becky's voice! In some of the later books a different narrator is used and it's not the same.
When in Rome!...or New York!
The Shopaholic series is such a fun group of books. I enjoyed reading them and now I love listening to them on Audible! Rebecca Bloomwood's character is relatable to every 20 (or 30) something gal. She has a fun job, fun life, and loves to shop. Couple that with the high class city of New York and you've got trouble.
I know I will listen to this book over and over again!
This book made me laugh so hard I would listen to it again and again.
Becky's mouth gets herself in the most awkward situations.
She made the characters come to life. She used different language, speech patterns, etc for each character.
David, he seems like so much fun.
Buy the book you won't be diappointed.
I love the Shopaholic books. I've never really been a big spender myself but living vicariously through Becky Bloomwood. Even though I'm not a big spender, it definitely doesn't mean that I don't like hearing about other people's shopping exploits. Au contraire, I do very much; I just have extremely good willpower (haha)!
One of the things that I love best about these books is Becky herself. She's quirky and she makes a lot of mistakes but underneath it all, she's still easy to love. While I did find myself *facepalm*-ing throughout the book like I did in the first book, she's too hilarious to get mad at.
In this installation, Becky follows her dreamboat, Luke, to a bigger pond than London. She finds herself in the middle of NYC faced with all sorts of new stores to explore. She figures new country, new start and is determined to put off paying her bills waiting for her back in her home country. She spends with abandon and seems surprised when once again, it gets her into big trouble. On top of that, it gets her into much, much bigger trouble.
These books are a lot of fun. While I don't think that it's necessary for you to have read the first book in this series in order to enjoy the book, I think you could still definitely enjoy the books.
Of course. I find these books to be a nice walk through a wonderful characters life
It is hilarious. How does she get herself into these things?
Just the love of Becky and Brandon
Becky of course. She is the funniest character
Busy working mom, very little to no free time. Enjoys escaping from reality with light hearted and humorous stories. Books movies & audios.
I'm a huge shopaholic fan.....
A bit dry at times, but overall ok.
Enjoyable, light hearted. Can listen to while working, no real concentration needed.
Once again a FABULOUS book! I really enjoyed this book. It was fun to have some American landmarks to relate too.This whole series is so much fun!!
I really enjoyed the Shopaholic book, it warmed my soul. The readers voice made it so real! The story line was enticing and had a good ending, I really wanted to be friends with the people in the book, ha! I will be continuing with the series.
