Great Expectations: Confessions of a Shopaholic

It's summer. For me, this means root beer floats, fudgecicles, and silly books. I call these books brain candy, meaning, you don't have to really think about them and they leave you wanting more.

For my summer read, I am choosing Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella. First off, the cover is pink. As you know, I like cover art and pink is my favorite color, so it appears it will be a match made in heaven.

I have seen the movie and I thought it was cute and funny. It wasn't Oscar worthy, but then again, what is? (That's a completely different blog post for another time) I expect the book to also be cute and funny. On of my co-workers indicated the series was one of her favorites and went to pick up the newest one while I checked out my copy.

I hope it lives up to it's reputation!


  1. The Shopaholic books are almost unbearable as she spirals into ruin again and again but by the end of the story I am always grinning and ready to read another. The first 3 audiobooks were very well done. Then they changed narrators and I never got through the 4th one as a result. Wish they would not do that.

  2. Ugh, I agree, Camille. Listeners are loyal to a certain narrator. It's frustrating in a series when they change.
