So, while I still think there s acertain charm to these books, and that they re in many ways better than a lot of chick lit, I also just don t think they re for me any I ve become too old and cranky to enjoy them They belong to a part of my life that no longer exists in which, for example, I also secretly owned an Avril Lavigne CD.
Jar of Death Pick 17ChickLit A Thon read a Sophie Kinsella bookThe Shopaholic series is what some people would call a guilty pleasure but since I don t believe in guilty pleasures I simply call it a pleasure Becky Bloomwood Brandon is a compulsive shopper and I love her I too love to shop, I have a second closet filled with clothes, shoes and bags that still have to tags on them I learned this behavior from the best, my mother My mother spent the last 30 years of her life battling a terminal illness, so she lived everyday like it was her last because it could have been She bought what she wanted, she simply lived life to the fullest and she raised me and my sister the same way She also taught us how to budget so we wouldn t end up in debt Unfortunately no one ever taught Becky about budgets In Shopaholic Baby Becky is you guessed expecting a baby So naturally she needs to buy everything a baby could ever need and a lot of things a baby will never need Becky is a lunatic and that s what makes her so much fun These books are just frivolous fun and sometimes we need that A great series but not for everyone
Book 31 100 A pregnant Becky is twice as annoying as regular Becky Luke, my boy, I feel for you I m enjoying the Shopaholic series and the deeper I get It has finally segued from her spending addiction to the root of her problem which is poor impulse control And when someone has minimal self control, we all know the messes they can get themselves into lol Becky s impulses always get the best of her but her happy attitude, out of the box thinking, and sheer determination never fail to get her out every time And I absolutely loved Luke in this one We don t see enough of him in this series but I thoroughly enjoyed getting a few glimpses of his character My star ratings are increasing and I am officially excited to continue the series My favorite quoteMake up artists should hereby get the Nobel prize for adding to human happiness And so should hairdressers And so should Luke this was my favorite of the whole series partly because she doesn t do anything completely ridiculous, and you can see that she is learning and growing and communicating , even if it s not as much as she should i seriously love how becky and suze refer to people they don t like as cows maybe it s an english thing, but it seems like such a random choice of words even though all along you know how kind hearted, fun and well meaning becky is, i love how it comes out even in this book i am a forever hopeless romantic, so i love the many becky and luke moments in this book, and i LOVE the end i love that becky has grown and matured, but is still the same old becky who loves to shop, and always will and i love that she is a mom.
Rather than being lovable, I found Becky to be irresponsible, annoying and pretentious For example, after Becky s husband explains that his company is hemorrhaging money and asks her to reign in her spending, Becky responds by hiding her purchases from him How very responsible of her, indeed.
Of course, I realize the book is of the chick lit genre, but it would have been nice to have a modicum of reality intermixed with the fiction.
To me, Becky represents the irresponsible consumerism that has resulted in the current credit crisis, and frankly, I don t find anything laughable about that Kinsella appears to have mailed in this book, and it s evident that she exercised the same level of brain power as possessed by her heroine in thinking through the plot.
Becky Brandon Nee Bloomwood Is Pregnant She Couldn T Be Overjoyed Especially Since Discovering That Shopping Cures Morning Sickness Everything Has Got To Be Perfect For Her Baby From The Designer Nursery To The Latest, Coolest Pram To The Celebrity, Must Have Obstetrician But When The Celebrity Obstetrician Turns Out To Be Her Husband Luke S Glamorous, Intellectual Ex Girlfriend, Becky S Perfect World Starts To Crumble She S Shopping For Two But Are There Three In Her Marriage first few pages made me laughed already but as i go later into the story YES.
becky has gotten shallow for some reason it felt like someting was missing comparing from the previous series.
BUTi ll admit she is fab she s a red hed bitch,and i hate her that made me laugh so hard.
how sophie kinsella create becky s mind is wonderful shallow and materialistic but creative and one of a kind.
just a great fun to read it.
some say she s dumb but i find it unique come on who have that much drama during labour im always a fan of her ,becky im sure she ll be flattered.
