Stupid real life. Why isn‘t it like a Christmas movie?
If I‘d known I‘d be stuck in a shop over Christmas, I‘d at least have chosen one with clothes.
I may have overdone it with the book swaps this holiday season! At least I know there will be books under the tree for me! #jolabokaflodswap #bestof2021swap #wintersolsticeswap @candority @MaleficentBookDragon @Chrissyreadit @sprainedbrain
Finished this audiobook on the way home from work. This was such a fun story about Becky being forced to host Christmas for her family and friends who have invited themselves. If you have read any of the Shopaholic books, you know what a mess Becky can get herself into. I found myself laughing out loud many times listening to this book and the reader was just great! I recommend this one and if you like audio, it's definitely worth a listen!
Okay, confession... this is my first Sophie Kinsella book. I know, I know, I'm ashamed of myself. I LOVED IT! I laughed out loud so many times, and sometimes it wasn't just a chuckle, it was a good hearty laugh. This is one I can highly recommend. #WinterGames2020 #readnosedreindeer #bookspinbingo #bookmasbingo #littenlisten #festiveflicks #ReadYourWay #CrushTheRush
During the Stay At Home mandate that is currently in place I have been working on a cross stitch project. I started listening to Christmas Shopaholic this morning. Hopefully it‘ll be better than the last book in the series. I seriously thought about not bothering with this one, but since I‘ve made it to this point, I feel like I need to follow the books to their conclusion.
It‘s been a very long time since I‘ve picked up a book from the Shopaholic series, but I was interested in giving it a try when searching for holiday themed books. I‘m glad that I did because I enjoyed it more than I anticipated! Becky is up to her usual antics, which often stresses me out, but the situations she gets herself into are both ridiculous and hilarious.

I had a fun time reading this one for the holidays! It‘s been ages since I read a shopaholic book and I couldn‘t resist this beauty at Barnes and Noble. I love the wit, charm and silliness of the series. It‘s British which is just wonderful as well. I thought I knew where this story was going, but I didn‘t which made for an enjoyable read! #shopaholicseries #holidayreads
Becky drives me up a wall. I think she needs therapy. I don't really know how her husband manages to stay her husband. Other than my dislike for the character, I enjoyed the way Kinsella told the story. I can't decide if she's critiquing the consumerism of today's capitalist society or diving deep into a shopping fantasy land fictionally incarnate for women to live through. https://onthebl.org/2019/12/20/christmas-shopaholic-by-sophie-kinsella/
I really liked this cute book with Becky Brandon, née Bloomwood, and her Christmas-y antics! A fun holiday read!

Also, this was my last book for #booked2019! #newin2019
This was the PERFECT read to get me into the holiday spirit! I love this series but haven‘t read the last few before this one and was worried I‘d have missed something crucial. Happy to say it was easy to pick right back up with Bex and her insanely silly antics! I even got a little teary at the ending. So sweet and fun and full of joy! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Struggled a lot with the first half, it felt like same ole same ole with Becky, no growth or interesting developments. Flew through the second half, it was funny with some heartwarming moments and showed the side of Becky that I like best.
Liked the ending, especially the tidbit at the end.

After the last Shopaholic book I said I was done with this series, but it‘s been a few years and this one is christmasy so I decided to give it a whirl, and I‘m already disappointed.
It‘s the same thing. I don‘t understand after all these years she learned absolutely nothing about herself or her husband!
Starting this holiday read. It‘s been awhile since I‘ve read a Shopaholic book, which was probably needed as Becky got to be frustrating as she showed minimal growth through the series. Hoping to enjoy this one.
