Shopaholic and Sister Reviews

  • Zoë

    Like I've said before, I absolutely love Sophie Kinsella's writing style. She creates such strong characters with very different personalities and has them get into the weirdest and funniest situations. I honestly thought I would get bored with this series as I kept reading on, but the opposite is actually true! I can't wait to read the fifth book, Shopaholic & Baby and laugh even more!

    Another great addition to the Shopaholic series - Sophie Kinsella once again brings Becky, a quirky but lovable character back into the fray with a wonderful mix of weary world traveling, sisterhood and of course, more shopping!!

    We pick Becky up at the end of a 10-month honeymoon with her new hubbie Luke – they’ve been all over the world and Becky’s got a lot of shopping to show for it – but it’s easy – she just buys and has it all shipped home – she’ll worry about where to put it all later! Bec

    Another great addition to the Shopaholic series - Sophie Kinsella once again brings Becky, a quirky but lovable character back into the fray with a wonderful mix of weary world traveling, sisterhood and of course, more shopping!!

    We pick Becky up at the end of a 10-month honeymoon with her new hubbie Luke – they’ve been all over the world and Becky’s got a lot of shopping to show for it – but it’s easy – she just buys and has it all shipped home – she’ll worry about where to put it all later! Becky decides to surprise her parents and her best friend Suze – by arriving in England unexpectedly. Becky’s in for a rude surprise – she seems to have been forgotten by her best friend Suze, who’s had twins since Becky left for her honeymoon and along with the twins, she’s got a brand new buddy that doesn’t seemed too thrilled about Becky’s return. Even her parents don’t seem too thrilled to see her and there’s some girl lurking in the background – who can she be? Well, Becky finds out that she’s got a sister. It seems that before her parents met, Becky’s dad had a romance with a flight attendant and never knew that she’d had a baby girl that she named Jessica. Becky is thrilled to hear about her sister and decides that the best way to bond is by…what else? Shopping!! She quickly learns that Jess doesn’t like shopping (Gasp!) and basically finds Becky to be irresponsible and shallow. Becky is determined to change her sisters’ mind and travels to the English countryside where Jess lives in order to bridge the gap and find her way into her sisters’ heart. Will Becky and Jess become soul mates? Will Jess learn to love shopping? Sophie Kinsella delights her readers once again as she takes us on adventure to find out!

    During all the action, we get the story from Luke’s perspective a little more – we see why he loves Becky so much and in seeing her through his eyes, we learn to love her just a little bit more!

    I read a few books between the last book (…Ties the Knot) and this one, but I found myself falling back into the story easily - It was nice to hear about Becky again! This was a fun story and the ending leads you right into the next book in the series – that’s right, I think it might be time for our Shopaholic to have a Baby!!

    I feel like I SHOULD hate these books by now...they all follow the same pattern of "Becky shops, Becky gets in trouble from shopping, Becky reforms and swears she'll do better." ALL the same. And yet, these books are all so funny and entertaining that I can't put them down. They're excellent for when I want to read something light, because they're well-written and they have such likable characters. I will have a hard time not reading the next one right away. In fact, I might not succeed in that.

    Very enjoyable. Becky is truly one of the most annoying characters I have read about, but it's still so funny; the situations she get's herself into, the conversations she has and the way she justifies certain actions. That woman lives in a completely different world. That makes this series definitely entertaining!

    I don't know why but for some reason I liked this book better the second time around. I read this book 5 or 6 years ago and I didn't love it. Shopaholic & Sister has always been my least favorite. I almost skipped rereading it but I decided to give it another shot. I'm glad I did because I found this book to be so charming and now I can't remember why didn't like it the first time.

    Shopaholic & Sister is book 4 of the Shopaholic series starring Becky Bloomwood. I'm gonna state facts here

    Shopaholic & Sister is book 4 of the Shopaholic series starring Becky Bloomwood. I'm gonna state facts here Becky is fucking lunatic. She the kind of person that I hope only exists in a work of fiction. Becky is a degenerate shopping addict and she's spoiled rotten.

    And Yet....

    I love her and I love this series. The Shopaholic series is a fun, fast paced read. I like to think of it as Literary Cotton Candy. It's not good for you but it sure does taste good.

    Can’t help but love and root for Becky.

    is the fourth installment in

    's

    series and is my favorite to date. Becky Bloomwood just tries so, so hard and it all just bites her in the end. This installment focuses on more than just her spending addiction so I think it was the perfect reprieve in that regard. I enjoyed it so much!

    These books annoy the heck out of me but for some odd reason I keep reading them.

    This time around Becky, the spoiled, materialistic bumble-head is unemployed and married to her sure to be long-suffering lover Luke. They spend the early part of the novel honeymooning around the globe for a year while Becky secretly spends all sorts of dough on silly trinkets and other assorted things (such as two dining room tables!) that Luke doesn't want or need. How the business savvy Luke remains oblivious to her spending is beyond me but oblivious he is until they return home and the huge trucks arrive with all of her secret purchases. He frets about the finances and puts her on a budget and, of course, she has a secret credit card that allows her to continue to do major damage. Luke nearly works himself to death while Becky is off putting his career in jeopardy so she can buy a trendy bag. Serves him right for marrying the bubble-head, if you ask me.

    When Becky returns home from her travels she discovers she has a half sister and is overjoyed with visions of shopping, sleepovers, popcorn and spending endless hours watching Pretty Woman and Sleepless in Seattle with her new sis. It's difficult to believe this woman is nearing 30 because she thinks like a spoiled tween. Much to Becky's dismay she quickly learns that her new sister isn't all she dreamed her up to be. First off she hates shopping, is super thrifty, is an environmental activist and wisely wants nothing to do with Becky. Due to Becky's wildly self-destructive antics the new sis warms up to her and eventually opens up. This part of the book partially redeems Becky's silly behavior. As always, Becky means well in this novel and down deep has a good heart but she's such a materialistic airhead she makes me want to scream throughout most of the book. I'm sure I'll be back for more punishment when my library releases the next installment . . .

    By this book, Becky Bloomwood is too annoying to read about. It's the same crap over and over again, and after three books of reading the same jokes, she's no longer funny, she's infuriating. I think that's the problem with this series. Since the main character suffers from an addiction, she's obviously supposed to exhibit the same behavior time after time. But this series is supposed to be funny, and if you hear a joke too many times, it loses its humor. Not only that, but since Becky never sho

    By this book, Becky Bloomwood is too annoying to read about. It's the same crap over and over again, and after three books of reading the same jokes, she's no longer funny, she's infuriating. I think that's the problem with this series. Since the main character suffers from an addiction, she's obviously supposed to exhibit the same behavior time after time. But this series is supposed to be funny, and if you hear a joke too many times, it loses its humor. Not only that, but since Becky never shows any improvement in the subsequent novels, it makes their endings worthless. In each book, Becky has some big epiphany at the end and we're led to believe that she's going to be more level-headed about her shopping, but then every sequel starts with Becky acting just as stupid as she was in the very beginning. It kind of makes you feel like everything she goes through is for nothing.

    Becky also reaches extreme levels of stupidity--oops, I meant "ditziness"--in this novel. At least in the first two books she had SOME intelligence, but here she's just plain dumb. Sophie Kinsella has stated that she originally planned her "Shopaholic" series to end after the third one, in which Becky gets married to Luke. According to her, she just missed Becky too much and decided she had to bring her back! Well, it shows. This plot is extremely contrived. All of a sudden Becky has a long lost sister whose biggest personality trait is her hate for shopping? Gimme a break. It would've been a better move for Kinsella to just skip straight to "Shopaholic & Baby" (which also sucks but is better than this one) and not bother with such a dumb storyline.

    Personally, I think Kinsella should have ended this series after "Shopaholic Takes Manhattan."
