Shopaholic and Baby by Sophie Kinsella

Amazon description:

Becky’s life is blooming! She’s working at London’s newest fashion store The Look, house-hunting with husband Luke (her secret wish is a Shoe Room)…and she’s pregnant! She couldn’t be more 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!

This is the final book in Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic Series, and it is just as good as the other books. Becky is a compulsive shopper, and this pregnancy has given her another reason to go out and spend a great big whack of cash. In regards to shopping, there were a few times I chuckled – like when Luke and Becky go pram shopping in a warehouse full of prams…scary to anyone!

There are other elements to this book, and series however. There is love, friendship – and in this book, jealousy and panic. Becky is a vain, self-obsessed women but I did feel sorry for as she went up against Luke’s ex-girlfriend. This is something I like about Kinsella’s writing – I feel empathy even when the characters are self-centred. I did like other characters – her mum is completely irrational, which is fun to read, and her friend Suze is just a gem.

This is pure female fiction. It is unashamedly girly. It is an easy, quick read. Fairly predictable and unrealistic – but that adds to the magic that is The Shopaholic Series. I have absolutely loved this series. It is engaging and gripping, light-hearted and fun. I’m sad that this is the end of the books, I’d love more. If you like chick-lit, this book is for you.

9/10

One thought on “Shopaholic and Baby by Sophie Kinsella

  1. Love this one! And the whole series! I’m a huge fan of Kinsella as well : )

    If you like Sophie Kinsella, I think you would really love a book I wrote called ‘Knickles and Dimes’. It’s a really fun read, with laugh-out-loud characters and a great story. I hope you’ll check it out!
