I am a shopaholic. And when I came across the first book in the Shopaholic series of novels by Sophie Kinsella, I was intrigued and picked up the book – The Secret Dream World of a Shopaholic (aka Confessions of a Shopaholic). I loved the book and especially the character Rebecca (aka Becky) Bloomwood. I am not an accomplished shopaholic like Becky but I related to the character. So I read all the book in the series, awaiting new titles with enthusiasm. The Shopaholic series also made me glued to chicklit!
Books in the Shopaholic Series of novels by Sophie Kinsella:
- Confessions of a Shopaholic (aka The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic)
- Shopaholic Abroad
- Shopaholic Ties the Knot
- Shopaholic & Sister
- Shopaholic & Baby
- Mini Shopaholic
- Shopaholic to the Stars
I read the first 4 books in different order and then read them in the order they appear in the series! I eagerly awaited the 5th book but was not as impressed after reading it. Mini Shopaholic was then became my least favorite book from the series until “Shopaholic to the Stars” was released.
I did not enjoy Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) character in this movie. And though I enjoy seeing characters with dark side, Becky just took her stupidity to a whole new level. In the first 6 books I did not feel the need to stop reading but in the 7th one, I wanted to give up. So I powered through.
But the unnecessary cliffhanger at the end annoyed me plenty. Ironically I still want to know what will happen in the next book. I hope Becky will redeem herself!
