Confessions of a Shopaholic: Book Review

Yes, I am late to getting this review since the book was published in the early 2000’s and a movie was already made BUT, still a book you can relate to in 2021. πŸ˜πŸ›

Sophie Kinsella is a former financial journalist and uses this knowledge as she makes her protagonist Rebecca Bloomwood, one as well. The hilarious and relatable book will keep you turning the page immediately (I finished it in 6 hours just saying)! πŸ˜πŸ€‘

The adventures of Becky go through the chapters each ending/beginning with a letter from her bank stating she is in a lot of debt and running out of time to pay it off. Although Becky ignores these letters, πŸ“§she is aware of her financial crisis, but she can’t stop shopping! Been there… it was all on sale. Okay, maybe not all of it. But a super good deal. I found a coupon. Okay, nevermind, back to Becky Bloomwood. 😳

As Becky works her way through London trying to cut back on spending, she ends up spending more, so her next solution is to make more! πŸ“ˆ

As she finds herself entangled in all these financial problems, she lands a segment on the fictional News Series Morning Coffee, as viewers call in so she can give her expertise on finance. Talk about the irony!β˜•οΈ

To her surprise Becky ends up meeting her new love interest over a Denny and George Scarf that she needs 20£ for, and he lends it to her as she pretended it was for her dying aunt in the hospital! 🧣

Definitely a good heart felt and lighter read to start the spring/summer off right! Through the laugh out loud moments, to the extremely relatable ones the novel ends with Becky coming face to face with the Bank manager who she’s ignored the whole book! I won’t spoil the whole thing for you, but it’s a pretty iconic novel. πŸΎπŸ›πŸ›’

Overall Cupcake Count: 🧁🧁🧁🧁🧁

Yours β€˜til the shopping sprees πŸ‘ πŸ‘—πŸ‘šπŸ‘‘πŸ‘›
