Shopaholic & Baby Reviews

  • Morgan Olson

    this was my favorite of the whole series. partly because she doesn't do anything completely ridiculous, and you can see that she is learning and growing and communicating more, even if it's not as much as she should. i seriously love how becky and suze refer to people they don't like as "cows". maybe it's an english thing, but it seems like such a random choice of words. even though all along you know how kind hearted, fun and well meaning becky is, i love how it comes out even more in this book

    ChickLit A Thon: Read a Sophie Kinsella book

    The Shopaholic series is what some people would call a "guilty pleasure" but since I don't believe in "guilty pleasures" I simply call it a pleasure.

    Becky Bloomwood - Brandon is a compulsive shopper and I love her. I too love to shop, I have a second closet filled with clothes, shoes and bags that still have to tags on them. I learned this behavior from the best, my mother. My mother spent the last 30 years of her life battling a terminal illness, so she lived everyday like it was her last because it could have been. She bought what she wanted, she simply lived life to the fullest and she raised me and my sister the same way. She also taught us how to budget so we wouldn't end up in debt.

    Unfortunately no one ever taught Becky about budgets. In Shopaholic & Baby Becky is you guessed expecting a baby. So naturally she needs to buy everything a baby could ever need and a lot of things a baby will never need. Becky is a lunatic and that's what makes her so much fun. These books are just frivolous fun and sometimes we need that.

    A great series but not for everyone

    I'm enjoying the

    series more and more the deeper I get. It has finally segued from her spending addiction to the root of her problem which is poor impulse control. And when someone has minimal self-control, we all know the messes they can get themselves into lol. Becky's impulses always get the best of her but her happy attitude, out-of-the-box thinking, and sheer determination never fail to get her out every time. And I absolutely loved Luke in this one. We don't see enough of him in

We don't see enough of him in this series but I thoroughly enjoyed getting a few more glimpses of his character.

    My star ratings are increasing and I am officially excited to continue the series!

    Okay, how do I feel about this series?

    Dear Becky,

    Just quick question; why are you so dumb?

    I don't mean to offend you because academically you seem fine, but the general rule of intelligence is to learn from your mistakes.

    Have you EVER learned from your mistakes? People around you are aware you're spoiled and shallow and irresponsible but you just can't help yourself can you?

    Luke could probably do better, but he obviously loves you and that is truly what is important. I do actually quite like

    Dear Becky,

    Just quick question; why are you so dumb?

    I don't mean to offend you because academically you seem fine, but the general rule of intelligence is to learn from your mistakes.

    Have you EVER learned from your mistakes? People around you are aware you're spoiled and shallow and irresponsible but you just can't help yourself can you?

    Luke could probably do better, but he obviously loves you and that is truly what is important. I do actually quite like your relationship - except for the secrets! You're aware that you should have an honest, open relationship but it's near impossible for you to manage it! Come on!

    However, I do love pregnant you, and I think you'll make great mum. Hopefully you and Luke get out of your economical problems soon because you will need all the money you can get to support both you and Minnie's shopping.

    Another thing: Minnie? The name. WHY?

    I'm sorry, but I just really detest that name. It's like you're asking for your daughter to be a brat. And she will be.

    Now, Becky, you're loved and you love. You have a big heart and you get great ideas sometimes. But please, please try and learn to not get into any messes because I am

    to just abandoning you completely.

    Love and well wishes,

    Claudia

    A pregnant Becky is twice as annoying as regular Becky.

    Luke, my boy, I feel for you!

    Ahh, how times have changed. I used to consider these books a good guilty pleasure; now I find there's a lot less pleasure and a lot more guilt. Kinsella is still an amusing, energetic writer, but Becky really grated on my nerves this time around. She's just

    shallow and

    frivolous, and while in the first few books she was also just a regular working girl, now that she's rich (thanks entirely to her husband), her insane overspending and materialism swiftly loses its charm and becomes...icky.

It can be difficult to read a whole book about someone you would probably feel uncomfortable having lunch with.

    So, while I still think there's a...certain charm to these books, and that they're in many ways better than a lot of chick lit, I also just don't think they're for me anymore. I've become too old and cranky to enjoy them. They belong to a part of my life that no longer exists (in which, for example, I also secretly owned an Avril Lavigne CD).

    I had the misfortune of buying this book before a long flight to Europe. Due to a lack of alternative entertainment, I read the book from cover to cover. While the book had some funny excerpts, my extreme dislike for the main character (Becky Brandon) overshadowed any enjoyment garnered from the book.

    Rather than being lovable, I found Becky to be irresponsible, annoying and pretentious. For example, after Becky's husband explains that his company is "hemorrhaging money" and asks her to reign in

    I had the misfortune of buying this book before a long flight to Europe. Due to a lack of alternative entertainment, I read the book from cover to cover. While the book had some funny excerpts, my extreme dislike for the main character (Becky Brandon) overshadowed any enjoyment garnered from the book.

    Rather than being lovable, I found Becky to be irresponsible, annoying and pretentious. For example, after Becky's husband explains that his company is "hemorrhaging money" and asks her to reign in her spending, Becky responds by hiding her purchases from him. How very responsible of her, indeed.

    Of course, I realize the book is of the chick lit genre, but it would have been nice to have a modicum of reality intermixed with the fiction.

    To me, Becky represents the irresponsible consumerism that has resulted in the current credit crisis, and frankly, I don't find anything laughable about that. Kinsella appears to have mailed in this book, and it's evident that she exercised the same level of brain power as possessed by her heroine in thinking through the plot.
