#SophieKinsella ’s book The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic is an unassuming charmer, seeking to warm your heart and draw laughs, while being unapologetically breezy and light.
The central character in this first book of the #Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella is #BeckyBloomwood. Becky is scatter-brained, a spendthrift, sweet, funny (only sometimes intentionally), sensitive, and bound to make you smile often and laugh out loud a few times as you read about her exploits at work and love. She is a #serialshopper and her #Visabill far exceeds her income. And oh, she is also a #FinancialJournalist.
As Becky struggles to shine at work while hating it, she’s also trying desperately to pay her larger-than-Godzilla #creditcardbills. She’s tried #CuttingBack. She’s also tried #MakingMoreMoney. But her love for shopping far exceeds the money she makes, and finally Becky resorts to turning a blind eye to her credit card statements. When all this fails, and she’s also been humiliated by the man she’s falling for, she runs away. Umm, to her parents’ house.
Now, Becky must find a way out. As she is assisted by the love of her sweet parents and her best friend, she finally finds the courage to fight back and solve all the problems she’s been hiding away from.
Becky’s impossibly funny journey in “The secret dreamworld of a shopaholic” is bound to make you smile, even as you shake your head at her curious exploits. Sophie Kinsella’s book makes no claims to be a great work of literature, but if you’re looking for a feel-good novel to pass time pleasantly, or if you want to curl up at home and read while munching on your “comfort” food, this is the ideal “comfort” book!
