As the series progresses, the story and Becky, herself, become more shallower and sillier. Becky Bloomwood must be the most naive, poser, irresponsible, stupid heroine I have met. Her sister was right, she was a spoiled brat. I just wished Kinsella did not make this a series. I hope she just stopped with the first one. I don't know who needs help, Becky Bloomwood or Sophie Kinsella! ( )

Didn't enjoy this half as much as the other Shopaholic books. Just seemed like an odd transition book. ( )

I was able to read the Confessions of a Shopaholic years ago and I wasn’t able to finish the other parts after. I’ve always liked the fun, light readings of Sophie Kinsella so I decided to finish her Shopaholic series to give me a positive boost on my “freakish” month. :D It’s nice to delve into feel-good-funny novels once in a while. :D ( )

Book description
Sophie Kinsella has conquered the hearts of millions with her New York Times bestselling Shopaholic novels, which feature the irresistible one-woman shopping phenomenon Becky Bloomwood. Now Becky’s back in a hilarious, heartwarming tale of married life, best friends, and long-lost sisters (and the perils of simply having to own an Angel handbag!).

What’s a round-the-world honeymoon if you can’t buy the odd souvenir to ship back home? Like the Chinese urns and twenty silk dressing gowns Becky found in Hong Kong…the five kilim rugs from Turkey…the splendid hand-carved dining table (and ten chairs) from Sri Lanka…the, um, huge wooden giraffes from Malawi (that her husband Luke expressly forbade her to buy)…

Only now Becky and Luke have returned home to London and Luke is furious. Two truckloads of those souvenirs have cluttered up their usually immaculate loft, and the bills for them are outrageous. Becky’s even maxed out on her second secret credit card, and she doesn’t have a new job yet!

Luke insists she go on a budget. And worse: her beloved best friend Suze has found a new best friend while Becky was away. Becky’s feeling rather blue—when her parents deliver some incredible news. She has a long-lost sister! Becky is thrilled! She’s convinced her sister will be a true soulmate. They’ll go shopping together, drink cappuccinos together, have manicures together, and watch their favorite videos together.

Until she meets Jessica for the first time and gets the shock of her life. Surely Becky Bloomwood’s sister can’t…hate shopping?
