    1. Ahh, how times have changed. I used to consider these books a good guilty pleasure; now I find there's a lot less pleasure and a lot more guilt. Kinsella is still an amusing, energetic writer, but Becky really grated on my nerves this time around. She's just so shallow and so frivolous, and while in the first few books she was also just a regular working girl, now that she's rich (thanks entirely to her husband), her insane overspending and materialism swiftly loses its charm and becomesicky. It [...]



    2. this was my favorite of the whole series. partly because she doesn't do anything completely ridiculous, and you can see that she is learning and growing and communicating more, even if it's not as much as she should. i seriously love how becky and suze refer to people they don't like as "cows". maybe it's an english thing, but it seems like such a random choice of words. even though all along you know how kind hearted, fun and well meaning becky is, i love how it comes out even more in this book [...]


    3. Okay, how do I feel about this series?Dear Becky, Just quick question; why are you so dumb? I don't mean to offend you because academically you seem fine, but the general rule of intelligence is to learn from your mistakes. Have you EVER learned from your mistakes? People around you are aware you're spoiled and shallow and irresponsible but you just can't help yourself can you?Luke could probably do better, but he obviously loves you and that is truly what is important. I do actually quite like [...]


    4. I had the misfortune of buying this book before a long flight to Europe. Due to a lack of alternative entertainment, I read the book from cover to cover. While the book had some funny excerpts, my extreme dislike for the main character (Becky Brandon) overshadowed any enjoyment garnered from the book.Rather than being lovable, I found Becky to be irresponsible, annoying and pretentious. For example, after Becky's husband explains that his company is "hemorrhaging money" and asks her to reign in [...]


    5. first few pages made me laughed already but as i go later into the story YESy has gotten more shallow for some reason;it felt like someting was missing comparing from the previous series.BUTi'll admit;she is fab!"she's a red-hed bitch,and i hate her"at made me laugh so hard sophie kinsella create becky's mind is wonderful!shallow and materialistic but creative and one of a kind.just a great fun to read itme say she's dumb but i find it unique!come on who have that much drama during labour??im al [...]


    6. Sometimes I find the shopaholic books hit or miss. This one was a miss for me. I did not like the frivolous way that Becky behaved. I always find her odd and flighty, but this story made me totally confused. I understand the doubts and nerves of gaining baby weight and yet, she takes it to the extreme. I found her to be even more self-absorbed while she should have been focusing on the baby, and Luke. As I said, a miss. I am not sure I am going to continue with the rest of the books. Maybe it is [...]


    7. I read the Shopaholic books as soon as I can get my hands on a copy. Sophie Kinsella is a really funny writer. She has sustained the Shopaholic idea through more sequels than most writers can. However, this book (and the previous one, Shopaholic and Sister) isn't as spot-on as the first two. I mean, isn't Becky ever going to learn to stop overspending? Every book involves her getting in a financial hole, then reforming at book's end, only to start over again in the next book. And of course, now [...]


    8. I'm officially over the Shopaholic books. They are all the same, Becky never learns anything, and I just can't imagine someone being as self-absorbed as she is. It was definitely something mindless to read while sitting by the pool, but won't change your life or anything.


    9. There is something wonderful about being able to pick up any book in the Shopaholic series and laugh out loud, forgetting about any other worries and escaping for a few hours. Sure some would say that chick-lit novels are a fluffy alternative to 'real' books and I guess they are, but that doesn't mean you can't have fun reading them. And that's what the Shopaholic series is - fun. The Shopaholic series also happens to include my future fiction husband: Luke Brandon. *dreamy sigh*The fifth book i [...]


    10. This is the fifth book in the Shopaholic series by Kinsella, and, I'm happy to say, an improvement over the last (Shopaholic & Sister). I don't want to spend a great deal of time catching you up on the whole series (check past blogs or for details), but in this installment Becky & Luke are pregnant with their first child. Like usual, Kinsella throws us right into it with three little words: "Ok. Don't panic."Becky's spending habits seem to have toned down as she's gotten older and settl [...]


    11. In this book, Rebecca and Luke are expecting their first child. Becky has to have everything for the new baby from the best pram down to 400 count crib sheets. Everything is perfect. Luke's job, Becky has the celebrity obstetrician that no one else can get into, a spot in British Vogue. Things couldn't be better. Than her world comes crashing down.To her utter dismay, she finds out the this new doctor is Luke's ex-girlfriend who turns out to be a royal pain in the butt. She really is, as Becky p [...]


    12. Sophie Kinsella is one of my favorite authors, and the Shopaholic series my favorite books. . I find them witty, humorous, exciting, and so much fun to read! I personally find Becky to be the perfect blend of silly and intelligent. I find all the characters relatable and I think their flaws make them all the more endearing. Although I am definitely not a shopaholic, I could completely relate to the character and I LOVE Luke and their relationship. I get so into the stories I find myself angry or [...]


    13. (view spoiler)[I am in love with their babies name: Minnie. (hide spoiler)]Wow, okay, so for this reread I definitely upped the star rating and I actually enjoyed it way more. It could've been me working out today, the football games, my dads chili, Netflix, or the wine I drank today. Either way I don't mind and I'm not going to question anything about it.Now, Shopaholic & Baby was really really freaking adorable. So fucking sweet. I loved everything about it - well, except for Luke's ex-gir [...]


    14. Becky Bloomwood is pregnant! Of course, these fashionable mom would only want the best and most beautiful for her kid. After learning that shopping is the best cure for her morning sickness and preggy cravings, she couldn't wait to go hunting for baby stuffs! And then there's the inevitable monthly doctor's appointment so she and Luke could checkup on their baby. But wait, what's this? Becky's OB gynecologist is none other than Luke's ex-girlfriend. And a very glamorous and fashion trendy doctor [...]



    15. Having read 'Remember Me' by the same author I decided to give this book a go. Despite not being the biggest fan of babies I wanted to read the book to see what makes the author so popular. I liked the subjects raised in the book - some of the issues are potentially very real but I was largely disappointed, not by the story or plot lines, but how the book was written overall. Kinsella repeats a LOT of words -I swear I read the word 'Incredulous' over a thousand times. Her descriptions are vague [...]



    16. Dit boek viel mij een beetje tegen. Het duurde tot over de helft van het boek voor het verhaal me echt te pakken had. Maar snel door naar het volgende boek.


    17. Becky Bloomwood Brandon is back in the 5th installment of the Shopaholic series, Shopaholic And Baby. Becky and Luke are back from their extended holiday/honeymoon and Becky is pregnant with their first child. Since discovering that ‘shopping cures morning sickness’ she’s been determined that their baby will have the best of everything, in true Becky Bloomwood style. And that includes the best OB-GYN.The best OB-GYN is Venetia Carter, who looks after pregnant models, stars, etc and Becky i [...]


    18. The Reader’s Advisory class I’m taking necessitates that I assign Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic series to a genre; by measuring it against the criteria presented in Joyce Saricks The Readers’ Advisory Guide to Genre Fiction, I can confidently declare it part of the “Women’s Lives and Relationships” genre. It is told from a women’s perspective (protagonist and titular shopaholic, Rebecca Bloomwood), set in contemporary times (modern day London), and generally optimistic and upbeat [...]


    19. This book starts of by telling us about Becky Bloomwood-Brandon who is just a regular mid-20’s year old shopaholic. She got married to her boyfriend, Luke Brandon. As soon as she came back from her wonderful honeymoon, she found out some astonishing news. She’s pregnant. At first when she found out, she was really anxious and nervous about it. Though this would be one of her biggest adventures. As the days went by and her ‘baby bump’ was developing, she discovered that shopping cures mor [...]


    20. I checked out this book from our local library in hopes to try something a little different. This is the first I've read of any of the shopaholic books. I was aggravated by this book. How on earth could someone be so consumed with shopping and what other people think of them is beyond me. I don't think I'll ever understand. First off, Rebecca is impulsive and emotional. She's too over the top. Seems like every sentence she spoke had a note of excitement behind it. Honestly, I'm surprised she did [...]

    22. I liked the first book, but as the series went on, Kinsella's books kinda lowered on the ratings. First of all, I liked how Becky was pregnant, but maybe is Sophie had shown a little more maturity on the protagonists part, i would have believed that she was actually ready to be a mom.Also, there was basically no romance between Luke and Becky, which got to me.Another thing was that, Becky's shopping obsession was supposed to be something funny and something that shapened Becky to be who she was.

    24. A first for me of the Sophie Kinsella Shopaholic series. I started off not sure if I'd like the heroine, Becky, who at first glance appeared shallow and only interested in the designer lifestyle. However as I got into the story I gradually warmed to her. What a quirky and lovable character, her adventures and misadventures showed her a a generous hearted girl, one upholding traditional family values in spite of her desire for all the designer gear for herself and her baby. There are many laugh o [...]


    25. This one starts out slow and aggravating -- as Becky Bloomwood so often does. I find the series slightly more annoying now that she's rich and her shopping affliction is less a real problem and more of just a pesky bad habit which her husband can constantly bail her out of. Oh hardy har har, Becky can't possibly choose just one stroller so she buys four uber-strollers when the rest of us struggle to afford one mediocre one that we can make do with. And for some reason, her marriage and relations [...]
