Whoever invented mornings after should basically be shot.

Kinsella adds a mystery and twists and turns at every corner in this latest work while maintaining Becky’s signature voice.”—Library Journal
  • I honestly couldn't believe this was actually written by Sophie Kinsella. Something was really off about the style and voice. The plot was so poorly fleshed out I'm wondering if it was written overnight. The jokes are bland and in your face and the light hearted, subtle humor is gone. I liked some parts of the book so the extra star.... Like Becky's growth as a character and mayyybe three jokes.

    Anyway, Shopaholic is no longer an automatic buy for me, which sucks, because I LOVED the rest of the books (minus the last one) and bought every new book in the series without a second thought.

  • I'm a big fan of the Shopaholic series but this one took a whole different direction. It picks up right from "Shopaholic to the Stars" which kind of left things hanging but that one was a pretty good read. Sophie could have wrapped that ending up and left this one alone. The plot was a bit far-fetched, even for Becky. Some if not most of it was just not necessary and the attempt at holding the mystery of what Becky's father was up to was very anti-climatic. Being a fan of this series and Sophie Kinsella, I feel like I know these characters and this book was very "uncharacteristic" of all of them.
    That being said, I am currently readying "I've got your number" which is a good read and more of what we're used to.

  • I guess the carefree sparkle couldn't last forever. I loved the first few Shopaholic books, but they have been losing their allure with each additional installment after Luke and Becky marry. Jumped the shark, I suppose. This one was a bit better than it's abysmal immediate predecessor, but those elements that made the first few novels in the series work aren't there anymore. Sad!

  • I love the Shopaholic books. The story in this one was very entertaining and it was a fast read. I really liked the Suze storyline in this one. This was different from others in the series because for the first time Becky was not in a jam, but got to use her creativity to help others get out of sticky situations! I do wish the had been more of a Becky and Luke together though.

  • I bought this book after being left hanging at the end of the last one. Sadly, this is not the Becky I've loved through all the earlier shopaholic books. I was disappointed.

  • I love this series, and Becky and her crew. I had to read this one, because the previous book left off so abruptly and I wanted to see what was next. This was kind of slow in the beginning, but picked up and had all kinds of unpredictable twists and turns. A good read if you can hang in there.

  • I enjoyed this novel. After several of the other reviews I wasn't sure I would but I wanted to keep going with the series. I liked that Ms. Kinsella actually developed her character. Becky has grown and matured and it makes her realistic. It would have been easy to keep her the same as she was in Confessions of a Shopaholic but this way makes me want to stay with the character.

  • Not as good as previous books. Was disappointed on how long plot and boring story went on and on. Loved all previous books.
