    Pros: Hilarious, great characters, wonderful premise, excellent writing style.
    Cons: None.

    Summary: Hats, shoes, gloves, clothes, suitcases, makeup, and several tons of moisturizer - - - just a little something to buy. Just a few little trinkets to ease the pain. And, really, they were on sale. It was really a good deal, or so Rebecca claims. Meet ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Witty and fun
    Cons: The internal conflict is unresolved and possibly made worse.

    Summary: Last night I finished reading Confessions of a Shopaholic. It was one of the forerunners of the Chick Lit craze and, while I had been curious to see what all the fuss was about, I wasn't curious enough to bump it to the top of my list. Well, here I am in ... read more

    Pros: Funny, easy read, truly inspirational
    Cons: Becky Bloomwood is a shopping psycho!

    Summary: It's been quite a while since I've read the first book in this series, but I can honestly say this book changed my life. It changed the way I thought about spending money, about shopping, and it actually forced me into more of a budgetary mind set. I am ... read more

  • The British Title is Better

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Some funny moments; Interesting to watch how a shopaholic's mind works
    Cons: Main character's stupidity gets really annoying; Easy, unrealistic ending

    Summary: The original title of this book by Sophie Kinsella, released across the pond, is The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic. I think that title suits the story so much more, since it details the inner workings of protagonist Rebecca Bloomwood's mind. ... read more

    Pros: Fast read, very fun story.
    Cons: A bit predictable and unrealistic.

    Summary: Ok, this is the 3rd book I have read by Sophie Kinsella. First I read Shopaholic Takes Manhattan and had mixed feelings about the book's style. I found it a bit hard to read but couldn't quite put my finger on why exactly. Then I read Undomestic ... read more

    Pros: Easy read and hilarious.
    Cons: Only wished it were longer.

    Summary: A friend of mine gave me this book to read. Quite frankly, I had seen it in the book stores before and never bought it as I thought it would be a cheezy read. Not so, it is probably the best written, most hilarious book I have ever read. At times I was ... read more

    Pros: The first novel in a terrifically fun series.
    Cons: You might find yourself craving a shopping spree.

    Summary: As a self-proclaimed shopaholic, I have to praise Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic series for its realistic portrayal of the inner clockworks that make up the brain of a born shopper. The tone of the books is very Bridget-Jones-eque, but Becky ... read more

    Cons: Annoying and unlikable main character, extremely unrealistic, predictable
