    One thought on “Shopaholic in Hollywood”

    1. Look, I love the Shopaholic series, I do. The first five books are fantastic. They may not be the most intellectually stimulating books in the world and Becky shows near no character development, but they're just so freaking fun, I don't care. Then came Mini Shopaholic, which is a blatant attempt to drag out Becky's story and continue making money off of a series that should've ended at book 5. And now this. I'll read it, but Kinsella?I love you and your books very, very much, but stop trying to [...]

    2. When I read #6 aka Mini Shopaholic, I already was feeling a tad tired of Becky's ridiculous antics but just for old times sake, I went to buy #7 on the day it was released. (It also doesn't help I have books #1-6.) If you think Mini shopaholic is bad, then this would probably be worse. She was rude, selfish, and inconsiderate to Luke, Suze and her Dad. The Becky in previous novels was big-hearted, and I could forgive her for being a ditz cos she is KIND. But in this book, you don't see much of h [...]

    3. Am I the only one that is really excited about this book? I mean, I know it'a a lot, but 'Mini Shopaholic' kind of came to an end that needed another book to proceed it, but it really is matter of opinion. Personally, I am looking SO forward to this book, you don't understand. I remember when I checked on various sites beforehand and they all said 'maybe' or 'no' to the 7th book and here it is! I really like long series of books, maybe because I get to relish the joy of reading it longer lol Gos [...]

    4. I have really enjoyed the Shopaholic series, they're witty and fun. Sadly this book fell short of the mark. It was simply tedious, with ridiculous, self-centered and juvenile characters, and very little story content. But worst of all - just when you think you're getting to the end of the book, you find absolutely nothing is resolved. In fact the few sub-plots evident in the story are left wide open for a sequel to follow (whenever). That was really disappointing. The book was a lot about nothin [...]

    5. I know the eighth book of this series would comeKinsella is a name big enough that the publishers would give it to herspecially since book 7 was ended with the intention of there being a next in lined I know I would read the next one toor I am one of those who makes sure she finishes a series when she starts one (why else did I read the last of Twilightor am sticking to The Clifton Chronicles when Archer is going on increasing it from a 3 book to 5 to now heard 7 book series)But this is the time [...]

    6. Oh boy. I read the majority of previous Shopaholic installments a few years back, over the span of a couple of months, and got to be really quite fond of the foibles and shortcomings of Becky Bloomwood/Brandon. Granted, they were all essentially mindless, easy reads and ultimately forgettable (I got a good 50-100 pages into Mini Shopaholic on holiday last year before realising I'd already read it), but I was still looking forward to the release of Shopaholic to the Stars, catching up with Becky [...]

    7. Disappointed to the core. I am getting fed up of Becky's character. So much that it makes me wonder why the people around her love her that much?? The plot is monotonous. Not many changes from the prequel. But that's not what I am complaining about. Her reckless spending, irresponsible behaviour have no room for improvement. She has to be immature and idiotic if she is Becky!! She has to keep messing up. Of course Luke, Suze and her parents will clear it up for her. All along the book she whines [...]

    8. Before I say anything. THERE WILL BE A BOOK #8 ☺☺☺☺Shopaholic in Vegas ☺ or something like that!!I just love this series.It's all so funny and cute and ridiculous and amazing.I just wish Sophie would put 5% more Romance into it poor Luke is not really happening in those books and he's the best part!!! Just a bit more kissing and cuddling and Luke being Luke that's what I want for book #8 ☺If you loved the whole series - you will love this book too. some might say Sophie should've st [...]

    9. It’s like she’s had Botox of the soul.I’m always excited about a new shopaholic book. It’s the perfect easy read and a good laugh. The latest instalment was no exception. I laughed out loud several times and enjoyed catching up with Becky. Long time no see, and all that.Shopaholic to the stars fits the usual pattern for a shopaholic novel: Becky shops too much, lies to herself, loses grip on the important things, fights with Luke, fights with Suze, makes up with Luke, makes up with Suze, [...]

    10. DNF. I'm sorry but what was the hook in this book? I mean, she spent an entire chapter discussing the pressure issues of a fountain, really? The plot was so boring I couldn't bring myself to finish it. After so many books in the series there's no originality and not much entertainment. I wish Sophie applied her Genius to writing original stand-alone novels.

    11. 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.Sophie Kinsell [...]

    12. I don't know what to sayI think I am agreeable with a lot of people on here. I have loved all of the shopaholic series up to book 5, but unfortunately they started to go way down hill after that. I am one who, once I start a book I have to finish it, but I was really struggling with this one.I love Kinsella's stand-alone books. The Undomestic Goddess made me laugh so hard I cried, so I feel that maybe Kinsella needs to retire Becky Brandon nee Bloomwoodand start concentrating on other characters [...]

    13. The shopaholic books have always been fun to read. They usually make me laugh out loud and this one was no exception BUT I think there needs to be some maturity and character development. To put it bluntly Becky needs to grow up. Her silliness was kind of laughably endearing for the first books but now she just seems rude and self centered. She has a wonderful long-suffering husband, supportive parents and an adorable daughter plus likeable friends. I sometimes wonder why they put up with her. I [...]

    14. Ugh, this series has to end. Becky Bloomwood Brandon may have been cute and funny when the series started, but she is now an irritating, clueless, and vapid airhead. I could only read this book for 20-30 minutes at a time because I would just get so irritated. Yes, I could have just quit reading it altogether, but I kept hoping it would pick up at some point.Please Sophie Kinsella, put this series to bed!! No more!!

    15. Becky is back and just as fashion fantastic as ever before! When Luke and Becky Brandon move to LA with daughter Minnie, Becky naturally sets her sights on fame, fortune and best of all… fashion! I mean, this is Hollywood, isn’t it?!But real life is never as glossy as the pages of a magazine.Is this really the lifestyle Becky wants? And with feuds forming between her family and friends, what’s the price she’ll have to pay to make her dreams come true?I couldn’t put this book down. The [...]

    16. Hanging out with Becky and her crew is always the time well spent.This book wasn't exception.I had a blast reading about new adventures that our protagonist got herself into.Becky and Luke have moved to Hollywood and while Luke is representing one famous actress, Becky is chasing her dream to become a famous stylist.While making her dream come true, Becky is changing, people around her are changing too.Becky has became even more egocetric and a lot of fingers are pointed at her. Even though she [...]

    17. 4.5/5 starsI still can't believe it happened but we are finally back into Becky's world! Mini shopaholic came out in 2010, four years lair, we finally get a sequel that also ends in a cliff hanger so i'm crossing my fingers for an 8th book! The Shopaholic series isn't my favorite by Sophie Kinsella and I pretty much read all the books under this name. However, getting back into Becky's world (I reread mini shopaholic before picking this up) has reminded me of the reason why I tolerate Becky and [...]

    18. What a long wait we have had for our Sophie Kinsella fix! I always enjoy the shopaholic series but each time I finish one I usually think surely there is no more the author can do with Becky and then bang out comes another book to entertain us.This time Becky, Luke and Minnie have temporarily moved to LA for Luke's work and Becky is determined to well and truly live the LA life, Minnie is in a top swish play school and Becky is off to make her big dream come true ( ok current big dream!) she wan [...]

    19. Добре де, може ли да са толкова гадни от Кръгозор, да ме оставят насред нищото. Това трябва да се забрани със закон, да не си довършат някоя поредица.И то точно тази.Беки тук се развихри на макс. До степен , че за малко книгата щеше да мине в категория фантастика.Но какво да се п [...]

    20. *Book received through the Vine program*I can't believe I'm giving this book so low a rating and I hate that I feel like I can't score it higher. I read "Confessions of a Shopaholic" over 10 years ago and loved it so much that I've re-read three times since then. That book got me hooked on the chick lit genre and I became a big fan of all of Sophie Kinsella's novels. I was so excited to read this new book in the Shopaholic series. "Mini-Shopaholic" was not my favorite book in the series but I s [...]

    21. An Advanced Reader Copy was provided by the publisher for review. Quotes pulled from the ARC may be incorrect and may be subject to change.Our favourite shopaholic Becky is back once again! Her lovely hubby Luke is taking a chance at working with actors in his new PR office. But that means taking the family from London to Hollywood, California. Becky jumps at the chance and brings her adorable daughter Minnie along. She soon finds out that it's just as hard to keep a job in America, so she sets [...]

    22. -Can i just marry Luke right now? Please.! he is perfect and i love him and he makes me asdfghjkl ♥-Becky you really got on my nerves in this booklfish opportunist user are the right words. and another thing, Becky's shopping and clothes and all that was barely in this books generally one of my fave parts, her outfit descriptions etc. The book lacked the "shopaholic" bit of the series -BECKY BRANDON JUST CANNOT KEEP HER MOUTH SHUT FROM SPILLING SECRETS SHE PROMISED TO KEEP, CAN SHE?!??!?-misse [...]

    23. Die vorherigen Bände fand ich alle immer super lustig und Becky war mir immer sympathisch. Leider war das in diesem Buch nicht der Fall. Das hatte irgendwie nichts mehr mit Shopaholic zu tun, nur noch mit Selbstsucht und dem Promistatus. Schade.

    24. There's a 7th book.Really ??I don't why this series is continuing,but GREAT 'coz these book are very funny.

    25. This is my first read of the series, although I have watched the movie adaptaion of the Confession of a Shopaholic. To be honest, I really had a hard time reading till two third of the book. Quite a number of times I was contemplating whether to give up. Had I given up, the rating definitely would have been a 2 stars; but I continued and found the latter third to be interesting, thus the rating was upgraded to a 3 stars.However, I doubt whether I'll read anymore of this series; it is not my cup [...]

    26. Critique complète sur mon blogJe suis FAN des Confessions d’une accro au shopping, je suis FAN de Becky Bloomwood et pourtant Ce dernier tome m’a prodigieusement énervée. En soi, je ne me suis pas ennuyée, j’ai ri à plusieurs reprises, je me suis laissée surprendre par l’intrigue. J’ai trouvé la résolution un peu bâclée et la fin qui laisse présager une suite (L’Accro du shopping à Las Vegas), écrite en queue de poisson , mais pour une fan comme moi, ça aurait pu passer [...]

    27. RATING: ★★★☆☆ / 3 silly and fun stars!REVIEW: This is the first Sophie Kinsella book that I've listened to and not read straight from the page even though I actually purchased the book in hardcover when it was first released. I buy Kinsella's books specifically for summer poolside reading, but for some reason, this time around I just never got around to picking it up. Instead, over a year later, I checked out the audiobook from the library as a way to finally check this book off my TBR [...]

    28. My blog - bookterflies/Never have I ever given a Shopaholic book 1.5 stars.I’m a big fan of this series, and of Sophie Kinsella in general. I remember when I was about 12, and I’d read most of the books in our library, so I browsed the English aisles. Shopaholic Takes Manhattan was my first ever English book, and I devoured it. I laughed and laughed, and I loved every page, every sentence of that story. Through the years, I’ve stayed faithful to this franchise. I even watched the movie, wh [...]

    29. Oh lawd. Becky is more deluded and self-obsessed than ever. She can be funny at times still, but she’s lost the vast majority of her charm as the series is driven into the ground by endless sequels. And Luke doesn’t really help since while she gets more wretched, he gets more bland.In chapter 5 when she reminisces about being in a flat together with Suze, I’m reminded of how likable and relatable she used to be. I mean, it was one thing when she became a wife, but now she’s a mother as w [...]
