Confessions of A Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella

In celebration of the DVD release of Confessions of A Shopaholic, I've dedicated my first post to the book it was based on!

Becky Bloomwood wouldn't call her shopping an addiction. It's more like a hobby, really. Actually, shopping is kind of a neccesity if you think about it. You need clothes, right? Yes, shopping is a neccesity. A really, really, expensive one...

Becky, a (ironically) financial analyst for Successful Saving magazine has got to find a way out of this debt. Up to her eyeballs in credit card bills, Becky sets out to find a way to save money. With bank manager Derek Smeath getting tired of her various excuses, and her debt increasing before her eyes, Becky is at a loss.
My rating:

This book gets four stars. If you've seen the movie, you already know how hilarious Becky is, and she's even funnier in the book! After reading this book, I went straight to its sequel, Shopaholic Takes Manhattan. For every shopaholic out there, this series is for you!

Thanks for the heads up on Sophie Kinsella's newest book. I'm a fan of the Shopaholic series and this one sounds completely different.

(Also, tried to leave a comment on that post but it wouldn't let me? Huh.)

No problem, Christina! I can't wait for Twenties Girl either!

You're right about the posting. I wonder why it's not working.
