I Confess! I’m Addicted to Confessions of a Shopaholic!

If you are not a fan of Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic series, I have just one question for you–what rock have you been under? First, you’ve got to find a copy of Confessions of a Shopaholic and read that before the movie comes out in February. Yes, I said the movie! Remember Isla Fisher from the movie Wedding Crashers? Cute and perky Isla is starring as Becky Bloomwood. Perfect casting! The Shopaholic series is all about Becky and her quest to spend more money than the national debt in one shopping spree after another. Sure it’s a lot of fluff, but it’s fun fluff. And sometimes we need that! The movie trailer looks fantastic! You can check it out on Sophie’s website. After you’ve read Confessions, you’ve got to read Shopaholic Takes Manhattan, Shopaholic Ties the Knot, Shopaholic and Sister, and Shopaholic and Baby. If you haven’t overdosed on Sophie by then, she has several stand-alone books that are also great–Can You Keep a Secret?, The Undomestic Goddess, and Remember Me. OK, I confess, I’m a Sophie Kinsella-aholic, so I’ve read them all–and they’re all great chick lit. Sorry, guys, find your own guilty pleasure! The Shopaholic series is her best work, so get started on Confessions of a Shopaholic today.
