Do you have to read these in order?   Or does it matter?

Thanks ~ Irene

You should read them in order.  It's an evolving story.

You kinda need to read them in order to really understand what is going on.  It really is a very good series, very light hearted and funny.  The first one was kinda hard to get in to for me, but once it got going, it was a fast read.

As you read them, the books reflect on what happened the last time around.  You could avoid reading them in order if you like, but I think they'd be more fun if you started at the beginning.  In order they are:

Confessions of a Shopaholic

Shopaholic Takes Manhattan

Shopaholic Ties the Knot

Shopaholic & Sister

Shopaholif & Baby

I read the whole series and I liked it but I was glad there were no more after "Shopaholic & Baby".  It got to be too much.

i really don't like those Shopaholic books. it's not the shopping that's so bad, but the lying gets to me.

Carol- Where did you hear there weren't going to be anymore after Shopaholic and Baby? I havent' heard that. I hope there are many more after Shopaholic and Baby because I LOVE that series. :)
