My Sister, My Soulmate?

AdvantagesAnother shopaholic book. 'nuff said.

DisadvantagesNone

"...categories Ė I like the Shopaholic series and I bought it while at the airport waiting to board a 7 and a half hour flight over here, which is as important a time as any to have a book with you. I didnít know this book had been published yet when I saw it on the shelf, but a quick check on Amazon tells me itís not out in mainstream paperback yet. I bought an airport edition (oversized paperback, about 10 GBP technically, slightly less thanks to the ..." Read review

Shopaholics Anonymous

AdvantagesA fun girly read with some serious messages too

DisadvantagesThe only one I can think of is that there are no more books in the Shopaholic series

"The Shopaholic series is one of my favourites (in the chick lit type genre). This may be because i recognise myself in Becky Bloomwood, the heroine, who has, shall we say, a small shopping problem? This is the fourth in the series. You don't have to have read the others, but it would give you a sense of context and a knowledge of the character. To me, watching Becky go through various life stages has made me feel almost as if she is a friend (sad, ..." Read review

Shopaholic and sister: book four

AdvantagesLaugh out loud funny

Disadvantagesnone

"...friend. I have read the whole shopaholic series and i have to say that this book and the first were the funniest. There were true laugh out loud moments and cringeworthy moments. Particulrly funny moments were the unintended connections with the gangster and her outfit when going horseriding. Becky Bloomwood is certainly one of a kind. I think that those who have read the previous books by Sophie Kinsella will appreciate this more as it's the ..." Read review

Shopaholic and Sister, an excellent sequel

Advantagesunstoppable page turning

Disadvantagesfinishing it, you just want it to go on and on........

"Excellent, Shopaholic and Sisiter is now out in paperback, all those months of waiting since hardback books are soooooo expensive arenít they. Anyway, after waiting for what seemed an eternity, I finally made my purchase of this book. Since the previous books (The Secret World of a Shopaholic, Shopaholic Abroad, Shopaholic Ties the Knot) have all been so excellent there was no doubt I would be making this purchase. Now, I always find the difficult ..." Read review

Shopaholic returns!

AdvantagesEscapist, easy reading.

DisadvantagesVery lightweight-not always a bad thing, though!

"This is a wonderful sequel to Sophie Kinsellas other "Shopaholic" books, all of which I have read, enjoyed and laughed out loud at. We re-join Becky Bloomwood 10 months after her marriage to Luke Brandon. They are still on honeymoon (isn't it well for some??!) and have made their way around most of the world. Unbeknownst to Luke, Becky, ever the big spender, has been acumulating possesions as they go and having them shipped home to Luke's minimalist ..." Read review

Advantagesonce going you can't put it down-write another Sophie!

Disadvantagesslow to start but stick at it

"Becky aspires to be the perfect wife to new husband Luke Brandon and researches it-unfortunately for Luke, on their return from a long honeymoon around the world. Well that is after she's bought half of outer Mongolias crafts! She returns back to good old oxshott-Beckys home town, expecting to be the first and last person to be asked to do seminars on her honeymoon experiences and perfect marriage-they'll call her the girl with the perfect marriage ..."

Shopaholic - every girl should be one !

AdvantagesVery entertaining, easy reading

Disadvantagessimilar to other Shopaholic books

"...we are again with another shopaholic book. I have been waiting for this book to be published for some time, as I had read all the other shopaholic books. This book did not let me down. It was very entertaining, funny and made me see Rebecca, the main character, in a different light. If you have read the shopaholic books, you will know that the shopaholic I talk about is Rebecca Brandon (nee Broomwood) she has just married her fiance Luke Brandon ..." Read review

Shopaholic Sister turns you into a Readaholic!

AdvantagesVery Light and Easy Reading. No real consentration needed to enjoy and follow the story line.

DisadvantagesAddictive! Once you start reading you cant put it down

"I have read all of Sophie Kinsellers book to date and they are addictive and very funny. I am constantly looking for new titles from this author. Would highly recommed this book if you want a funny, easy to follow story. Great story that most Women and even some men can relate too, that impulse purchase, that then sits in the back of a cupboard and get forgotten about!, Retail therapy and just plain "cant help yourself" when you see that must have ..."

Another Kinsella hit!

AdvantagesFunny, easy read, entertaining

DisadvantagesA bit silly at times!

"Brilliant! Another Kinsella smash - it was like Becky Bloomwood had never been away! And again she made me feel better about my debts!! For those of you who haven't read any Shopaholics yet - Becky is our heroine and she's your average 30 something but with a bit of a credit card addiction! As the title suggests she loves to shop! So she's back and this time she is married (to Luke Brandon of course) and still spending his (or should I say their) ..." Read review
