Shopaholic Abroad – Sophia Kinsella
Blurb: For Rebecca Bloomwood, life is peachy. She has a job on morning TV, her bank manager is actually being nice to her, and when it comes to spending money, her new motto is Buy Only What You Need – and she’s really (sort of) sticking to it. The icing on the brioche is that she’s been offered a chance to work in New York.
New York! The Museum of Modern Art! The Guggenheim! The Metropolitan Opera House! And Becky does mean to go to them all. Honestly. It’s just that it seems silly not to check out a few other famous places first. Like Saks. And Bloomingdales. And Barneys. And one of those fantastic sample sales where you can get a Prada dress for $10. Or was it $100? Is Becky too dazzled to care?
Review: This was an easy-to-read, entertaining chick-lit novel, with LOL moments. It follow MC Becky, and her partner, as they try to make it in New York, whilst overcoming obstacles thrown their way. The Shopaholic books can be read as stand alone, or part of a series. I’m a fan of Sophia Kinsella books, so if you enjoy reads such as Lindsey Kelk, you’ll love these books.
