Same book as "Shopaholic Abroad." More adventures of Becky Bloomwood. Hard to believe anyone could dig her way out of such shopping-induced debt, but our heroine is quite resourceful. This is the second book in the series.

As the plot thickens and the story works it's way through the book, I found myself enjoying it even more than the first. Becky's finding her way through life and it's enjoyable to read about.

I loved it. It's the follow up to Confessions of a Shopaholic and it was just as good if not better. I can't wait to go on to the third in the series...Shopaholic Ties the Knot. I'm hooked!

Rebecca Bloomwood the shopping maven is back in another book by Sophie Kinsella. When we last left Rebecca she had gotten a good job on Morning Coffee and had paid off all her debts. She had a handsome boyfriend in Luke Brandon, and everything seemed to be on the rise for her.

When we come on her again, things are looking similar to when we left. There is the Morning Coffee show she has Luke Brandon, and of course she is still living in the flat with Suze her best friend and roommate. There is however something old and yet new, Becky is again in debt. She just can not seem to get her shopping under control, we have found her again unable to say no to even the stupidest of purchases that she will never use! She rations them away and finds some obscure reason as to why she will need them. And than those letters start coming from the bank again, Oh my!

Sophie has made another laughable and yet emotional book that you can enjoy and that is a fast read. I had fun reading this book and it is just as enjoyable as the first one. Although you do find yourself saying why is Becky doing this again? Didn't she learn the last time? You still get a good chuckle out of it. Especially when our poor girl who so needs treatment for the addiction finds herself in New York with Luke. Things are certainly not perfect, and once again things come crashing down around Becky's ears. But well what does any self respecting person do? Try again. If you like Chic Lit, and loved the first book Confessions of a Shopaholic you will love Shopaholic takes Manhattan.

I actually enjoyed this one much more than the first book! It was funnier and I was so glad at the career that she finally chose - it really is surprising that she hadn't thought of it sooner. I'm not sure where these books are heading next - but if she ends up in debt AGAIN, I don't know how much longer the charm of the books will hold up. I know most chic lit is rather formulaic... but the same plotline for five books is a bit much.
