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?

My Thoughts...

I am never giving away, swapping or selling my Shopaholic books! Ever!
The life of Rebecca Brandon (nee Bloomwood) is one to behold!
I haven't picked up a Sophia Kinsella novel in a while now and it was SO GOOD to get back into Becky's world.
The Shopaholic series just cheers me up, so no matter what I'm feeling I can't help but smile and laugh.
There were so many laugh-out-loud moments and I'm so jealous of Becky's life, her family, her friends, everything. She's such a lucky girl, and surprisingly (in my opinion) a pretty good role model, as far as fictional female characters go.
This Shopaholic instalment definitely doesn't disappoint. The same old, lovable characters (plus some new crazy ones) are with us in this one and I'm so happy there's another one (Mini Shopaholic) after this. 

Anyway, Sophie Kinsella never fails to entertain, and if I could give this 100000000, or even a gazillion stars out of five, I would.
