Shopaholic to the stars - Sophie Kinsella

Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) has stars in her eyes. She and her daughter, Minnie, have joined husband Luke in LA—city of herbal smoothies, multimillion-dollar yoga retreats, and the lure of celebrity. Luke is there to help manage the career of famous actress Sage Seymour—and Becky is convinced she is destined to be Sage’s personal stylist, and go from there to every A-list celebrity in Hollywood! But things become complicated when Becky joins the team of Sage’s archrival. How will charming and supportive Luke deal with this conflict? Is it possible that what Becky wants most will end up hurting those she loves most?

My thoughts:
Yes I enjoyed it, sadly I only laughed two times. But I enjoyed it, it was light, sort of funny, and I could read it fast. And now I have to tear the book apart.

Omg people! You call yourself friends?! Please some stage a real intervention and pack Becky off to rehab!!! If it was drugs she would be hooking in the streets by now. The poor girl needs help. Not just a stern look or a headshake, silly Becky spent too much money again. Omg the girl needs help!!! And she making her kid like her too, which we saw in an earlier book. This is horrible really.

REHAB!!!!!!!!!

Why Luke stays with her, god only knows. Seriously the stunts she pulls. I would be out of there. She can not change. He "tries" to help, try for real and put her in rehab. Or leave her.

The book were amusing at one point, but these last few, no. There comes a time when I only see the bad things. When the laughs die. Let the series end now, and get the woman some help.

  1. I've read a couple books like this - the vampire queen books by Mary Janice Davidson for example - where they were hilarious and fun to start, and then started getting more tedious as they went. Maybe the next book will be a huge turnaround for the series?

    1. And like Janet Evanovich. They all get old in the end.

      I will read it, but I highly doubt it

  3. That might be a fun premise in the first book but then you need to show some growth.

  4. I cannot believe this series is still going on! Not that I didn't enjoy the first book, but I man I couldn't read the entire series. :) They were fun for the first book, but yeah Becky would annoy me too after awhile.

  6. I am surprised you liked this one. I read the first one and could hardly choke it down I really did not like the main character whatever her name was. Get some control.

  8. Hm... so I may just stick with the first few beginning books and forget the rest? I have had these recommended to me, but haven't picked them up. Might try the fist few though....

  11. Ah, that stinks! Sometimes I'm compelled to keep reading a series that has gone sour hoping, I guess, that it will make a come back. Guess this one isn't.

  12. I haven't read any but sounds like the series should come to an end unless... there's a successful rehab one and I guess there won't be.

  15. I have to say, I don't find addiction funny - be that as in shopping, drinking, smoking, etc. It's a terrible thing.

  16. I read the first couple of books in this series, but I did have a feeling she probably wouldn't be able to keep it up. It just didn't seem like a humorous theme she could stretch on forever.
