    Becky Brandon (nee 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.

    "Shopaholic and Baby"
    Overall

    The story itself was easily 5 stars, but the narrator again was awful compared to the first two which really detracted from the enjoyment of it. Her voice sounded like a woman in her 40's instead of her 20's. I hated the way she called Suze "Suzy"

    I always liked Suze and was glad more was done with her character this time around but the narrator failed to make her nearly as interesting as the one who read the first two books.

    I would still buy the next book to see what happens in Becky's future life though...but hopefully by then they will get the original narrator back.

    Hot off the success of her best-selling Can You Keep a Secret?, Sophie Kinsella delivers another hilarious Becky Bloomwood novel. When last we left Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood), she and Luke had just married and she'd unveiled her big honeymoon surprise...around-the-globe plane tickets. World-weary 10 months later, the newlyweds return home filled with excitement to share the details of their amazing escapades.

    "Shopaholic & Sister"
    Overall

    Although I still liked the story in the this one I didn't care for the narrator as much as the one who did the first two and it kind of took some of the enjoyment out of it for me. I thought her voice sounded a lot older (therefore too experienced in life) which I didn't think was suitable to the for the Becky character.

    With her shopping excesses in check - for now, at least - and her new career as a TV financial adviser blooming, Becky's biggest problem is getting her business-minded boyfriend Luke to take a romantic getaway. But "getaway" takes on a whole new meaning when Luke says he needs to move to New York for business - and he asks Becky to come with him! International best - selling author Sophie Kinsella's sequel to the wildly popular Confessions of a Shopaholic is non-stop fun.

    This follow up book was as good as the first.

    Sophie Kinsella's debut is a romp through the perils of shopping and spending, spending, spending! Becky can't resist a sale, and she's only a little overdrawn on her VISA. Readers will laugh aloud at Becky's retail adventures as she finds new and creative ways to relieve her increasingly credit card debt. Emily Gray's narration bounces along with Becky and her buying whims, while delivering a humorous account of what happens when credit goes bad.

    Evelyn says: "Not so much!"
    "Confessions of a Shopaholic"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. It was lighthearted, fun and had a lot of quirky characters that I could relate to real people or family members.
