Confessions Of A Shopaholic

Confessions of a Shopaholic: A Review

I have just finished reading Sophie Kinsella’s books: Confessions of a Shopaholic, Shopaholic Takes Manhattan and Shopaholic Ties the Knot. I was so amazed with how the story was written. I admit, at first, I was kinda bored with her job, a financial journalist attending conferences and all that, knowing she wasn’t even interested in the discussion ( but she’s interested in champagne, though ) and her never ending bills which she never wanted to read and in fact she kept on praying that they would all disappear one day….. Oh God. You would definitely think that Rebecca “Becky” Bloomwood is a crazy girl. But as the story goes, it became more exciting especially when Luke Brandon of Brandon Communications came around. I never thought that by the end of the first book, Luke would admit that he’s attracted to Becky. Hahaha! Luke was very different from Becky. He was straight forward, smart, workaholic, ambitious while Becky on the other hand was easy-go-lucky, in debt and very unhappy with her job. Upon reading the second book, those differences had caused some problems with their relationship leading to a break up because they don’t match in priorities. But eventually, they got back together. On the third book, they got married which is actually the best part. Planning the wedding was the most exciting part because of the stuff that was given to her, the dresses, the cakes which she can taste-test to see which she would like and also the Sleeping Beauty theme for the wedding. What I really like about the book is that by the end of the day, she gets everything sorted out and Luke on the other hand still loves her. I am definitely looking forward to reading othes Sophie Kinsella novels. Really awesome!! J
