Disadvantagessome people may not like Kinsellas work

* Becky Ties The Knot! *

AdvantagesFunny , Plot , Characters


"...really got into Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic Book series lately! The most recent one I've read is 'Shopaholic Ties The Knot'. For those of you who don't know the Shopaholic Series is based on a character named Becky Bloomwood , who is really obsessed with shopping! Actually , she's more than obsessed...she's mad! Shopaholic Ties The Knot is the third book in the series and was released in July 2002 (seven years ago!! and it's only a few months ..." Read review

Gucci, Prada, Chanel... oh my!

AdvantagesSharp, witty, light reading

DisadvantagesQuite a girly book; not for those looking for intellectual stimulation!

"Becky Bloomwood is a certified shopaholic. After finally dragging herself out of the red and back into the black, she has moved to New York with her gorgeous (and unbelievably rich) boyfriend, Luke, and landed her dream job as a personal shopper (spending other people's money and getting paid for it!). Things are going great for Becky... that is until Luke proposes and the wedding plans begin to spiral out of control... Becky's typically middle-class ..." Read review

Going To the Chapel



"...the third book from the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella and I have read one other in this series but I began with the one that actually follows this one. The first one I borrowed from the library and this particular one I have borrowed from a friend at work but if I realised how addictive these books are I would have started in the right sequence. Miss Rebecca Bloomwood (Becky) is the Shopaholic and this book from the series sees her getting ..." Read review

Bridezilla rides again Review with images

AdvantagesVery funny

DisadvantagesIt's too short - I need more

"...Dreamworld Of a Shopaholic, and Shopaholic Abroad) are not essential reading before you get to this one,as it stands pretty well on it's own. If you enjoy this book then the others will give you an insight into the back story, and are just as funny. Fans will be delighted to learn that the next installment, Shopaholic and Sister, is released in hardback on June 3rd 2004. ..." Read review

Shopaholic Gets Hitched

AdvantagesA great read

DisadvantagesStressful at times

"...third in the series of Shopaholic books by Sophie Kinsella. I have recently read the second one (Shopaholic Abroad) and this one is just as excellent as that one was. This book features main character Becky Bloomwood who, as the title suggests, is a shopaholic. She is living in New York after the last book saw her and her fiance Luke in New York with Luke trying to break into business there (he already ran a successful business in New York). Becky ..."

The Sound Of Wedding Bells and Cash Registers!

AdvantagesFunny, continues the shopaholic series, light-hearted and fun to read

DisadvantagesNot one if you're not a fan of chick-lit

"...the statements to hide her shopaholic habits. Then Luke pops the question and suddenly Becky has the chance to shop for wedding presents to put on the list without having to pay for items. She becomes like a child in a sweet shop and why have one shopping list when you can have 10! We then watch as Becky and Luke's wedding plans become more and more complicated. Luke's mother Elinor (a very scary prospective mother-in-law) wants to host a large ..." Read review

Advantagesstill a good book in the shopaholic series

Disadvantagesnot quite as good as the 1st 2 in my eyes

"...the 3rd book in the Shopaholic series written by Sophie Kinsella. I've just finished re-reading this one, and although it is a good enough book, it not as good as the previous 2 and I'm not looking at it through different eyes. So, the book centres around Becky Bloomwood. She is getting married. Becky and her fiance Luke got together in the 1st book, Confessions of a shopaholic, they moved to New York in the 2nd book, Shopaholic Abroad, and now ..." Read review

Rebecca's Getting Married!!

AdvantagesHad me hooked, I could not put it down

DisadvantagesRebecca sometimes annoyed me

"Rebecca Bloomwood is back and this time she is getting married. The only thing is her future mother-in-law is paying for an expensive luxurious wedding in New York and Rebecca's mother is planning (and paying for) a wedding in England. If that's not bad enough Luke (Rebecca's fiancé) seems to be having a mid-life crisis. I thought this book was well written and easy to read (which is what I like in a book). Sophie Kinsella's writing was excellent. ..." Read review

Shopaholic Ties the Knot is a fantastic story

AdvantagesI couldnt put it down

DisadvantagesI wanted it to go on for longer

"Shopaholic Ties the Knot by Sophie Kinsella is the third one in the Shopaholic series and I found it utterly addictive from beginning to end. Many chick lit books are drivel with unimaginative story lines but even though the Shopaholic ones have the usual characters etc that you would expect to find in such a book, the writer has managed to achieve something compelling, witty and full of shocking twists. Miss Rebecca Bloomwood (Becky) is the ..." Read review

Something new...and something else new!

AdvantagesHilarious, the best series of books ever!

DisadvantagesI never get anything done cos I'm always reading them!

"Ok, so for any of you who don't know the Shopoholic series by Sophie Kinsella-let me get you started!! There are four books currently in the series: 1. Secret dreamworld of a shopoholic 2. Shopoholic abroad 3. Shopoholic ties the knot 4. Shopoholic and sister So this is the third book in the series and just like the previous two-it does not let you down.

Sophie succeeds again

AdvantagesFunny, easy read

DisadvantagesLaughing out load in public is embarassing

"The third in the delightful series of books written by Sophie Kinsella. Reasonly priced book (especially if you can find it at the local supermarket for a little under £4.00 like I did). Becky is the main character again and what a girl she is. She is just a girl who still can't say no - whether it be to men, future mother-in-laws or the designer shops. She has finally set the date for her dream wedding (or rather two dream weddings).Along the ..." Read review

wedding bells



"...up the whole Becky Bloomwood shopaholic thing, as what else is there to write about shopping? And the fact that she stayed clear, (well, almost) of the over spending thing, made this book the success i think it is. This book goes more into depth with her relationship with Luke Brandon, which is a good move. The way he proposes was so sweet. I cringed when Becky was walking don the isle in the t-shirt made by her 'designer' friend, and laughed out ..." Read review

Amazing Book

AdvantagesEasy Read, Fun, Exciting and Very Enjoyable


"...is by far the funniest Shopaholic Book. I probable thought it was the best as i am getting married myself and could relate to the problems and queries which Becky Bloomwood was facing. It was such a good read that i recommend it to the girls i work with (ranging from 20-45) and we now have all ready the series and cant wait for the next one. It is a fun loving , easy read book that would be perfect for a holiday read or to read in a nice relaxing ..." Read review
