Shopaholic Ties the Knot
Shopaholic Ties the Knot - Sophie Kinsella

Nothing to say here really except it was a great book to jump back into the world of Becky Bloomwood. I think the next book was when the bloom fell off the rose for me. Becky's antics got more and more absurd and it felt like she learned nothing from previous issues. This one was a great way to move forward Becky and Luke's story. I loved that Becky realized that cutting off a person in Luke's life was not the best thing for him. She did something for him because she loved him that much. It was great to read and I did chuckle here and there.

This third book shows that Becky definitely has matured. So far am enjoying.

Christmas Shopaholic
Christmas Shopaholic - Sophie Kinsella

"Christmas Shopaholic" has the Brandon family back in Britain after the misadventures of the whole clan in Hollywood. Becky no longer has a job (again) and is instead all about mindfulness (not really). Her half-sister and her husband are about to return to the UK and now Becky's parents are giving up their home in order for her sister and her husband to live there. No that doesn't make any freaking sense and I refuse to dwell on it. Now that Becky's parents are living in a hipster community, her mother doesn't want to host Christmas. Instead, she asks Becky to do so and per usual shopping shenanigans commence. 

 

I laughed through this whole book, and no not in a good way. I feel like Kinsella re-used plot elements from her prior book, "Mini-Shopaholic" with her now trying to throw a great Christmas party that makes everyone happy, instead of trying to throw a surprise birthday party for Luke. One wonders why Kinsella keeps going back to this character. Her stand-alones have been pretty good in my opinion. And I loved her YA book she did as well. Ah well, I guess we will be getting Becky Brandon nee Bloomwood novels until death.

Adaption Review: Confessions of a Shopaholic

 

Title: Confessions of a Shopaholic
Release Date: February 13, 2009
Starring: Isla Fisher, Hugh Dancy, Krysten Ritter, Joan Cusack
Length: 1h 44min
Rating: PG-13

 

Pros: I liked that they kept the scarf story. I liked that they kept the sale. And I really liked how the mannequins talked to her.

 

Cons: Nearly everything else. This is so different from the book. It's set in New York City instead of London. She works for a gardening magazine and applies for Success Savings which is run by Luke Brandon, which is not what happened in the books at all. Tarquin doesn't appear to be Suze's cousin, although I understand that change.
