Another of Becky Bloomwood's adventures, set in Manhattan, shopaholic's paradise! This was as wonderful as the first of the Shopaholic series.

The books in the Shopaholic series are quick and fun reads for anyone looking to escape from mainstream "heavier" fiction. Becky's adventures are quite fun to observe, and as a reader, I found myself both identifying with her and asking "why in the world would you go and do a thing like that?" Plus, if you love shopping (and maybe a little too much like me), this is a great and cheaper substitute.

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.

Loved it! Kinsella sure knows how to keep a story interesting. What FUN!!

This is a great book and very entertaining! There were some parts when you wonder why the main character does what she does, but you will root for her the whole time. It's a great book. It makes me wish I could go on shopping sprees!

Oh no, she takes Manhattan. I was afraid for her bank accounts. This story does have Becky charging away, but more of the focus seems to be on her relationship with new boyfriend, Luke. I love Luke, he's dreamy. Anyway, we see them progress and Becky fouls things up as usual, but thank God Luke is so understanding.

Quick and fun, as per usual.

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.

Becky Bloomwood, a personal finance "expert" with her own TV show, is more of a financial mess than ever: she can't stop shopping, even though she can't afford anything. She's even assigned her flatmate, Suze, to monitor her spending, but to no avail: Becky is full of cute rationalizations, like "Foreign money doesn't count, so you can spend as much as you like," and can't stop herself from sneaking into posh boutiques. Her work-obsessed boyfriend, Luke, runs a financial PR agency, and when he gets the green light to open an office in New York City, he brings Becky along. Upon her arrival in the Big Apple, she euphorically discovers Barney's, Saks, Sephora and sample sales but when wind of her shopping excesses gets back to the British press, she loses both her relationship and her TV job. Becky manages to save the day in predictably winning fashion, with plenty of comic moments along the way.

Not quite as many laugh-out-loud moments as Confessions of a Shopaholic, though still an enjoyable book. Does shopaholic get her act together -- permanently? Looking forwarding to reading the next book in the series!

With her shopping excesses (somewhat) in check and her career as a TV financial guru thriving, Beckys biggest problem seems to be tearing her entrepreneur boyfriend, Luke, away from work for a romantic country weekend. And worse, figuring out how to pack light. But packing takes on a whole new meaning when Luke announces hes moving to New York for businessand he asks Becky to go with him!

Another great story by Kinsella. Becky is so lovable and easily identifiable. I know firsthand how easy it is to go a little crazy with the shopping and let it all crash down on you at once. I think most women have had that happen at least once in her life.

The irresistible heroine of Confessions of a Shopaholic and Shopaholic Ties the Knot is back! And this time Becky Bloomwood and her credit cards are headed across the Atlantic...

With her shopping excesses (somewhat) in check and her career as a TV financial guru thriving. Becky's biggest problem seems to be tearing her entrepreneur boyfriend, Luke, away from work for a romantic country weekend. And worse, figuring out how to pack light. But packing takes on a whole new meaning when Luke announces he's moving to New York for business--and he asks Becky to go with him! Before you can say "Prada sample sale," Becky has landed in the Big Apple, home of Park Avenue penthouses and luxury boutiques.

Surely it's only a matter of time until she becomes an American TV celebrity, and she and Luke are the toast of Gotham society. Nothing can stand in their way, expecially with Becky's bills miles away in London. But then an unexpected disaster threatens her career prospects, her relationship with Luke, and her available credit line!
