Overview

“This expensive, glossy world is where I’ve been headed all along. Limos and flowers; waxed eyebrows and designer clothes from Barneys. These are my people; this is where I’m meant to be.”
–Becky Bloomwood

Universally beloved by readers, Sophie Kinsella’s national bestseller, Confessions of a Shopaholic, introduced the irrepressible one-woman shopping phenomenon, Becky Bloomwood. Now, in this hilarious follow-up, Becky and her credit cards are headed across the Atlantic....

With her shopping excesses (somewhat) in check and her career as a TV financial guru thriving, Becky’s biggest problem seems to be tearing her entrepreneur boyfriend, Luke, away from work for a romantic country weekend. And worse, figuring out how to “pack light.” But packing takes on a whole new meaning when Luke announces he’s moving to New York for business–and he asks Becky to go with him!

Before you can say “Prada sample sale,” Becky has landed in the Big Apple, home of Park Avenue penthouses and luxury department stores.

Surely it’s only a matter of time until she becomes an American TV celebrity, and she and Luke are the toast of Gotham society. Nothing can stand in their way, especially with Becky’s bills miles away in London.

But then an unexpected disaster threatens her career prospects, her relationship with Luke, and her available credit line! Shopaholic Takes Manhattan–but will she have to return it?

In this second installment of Rebecca Bloomwood we come in thinking that she solved her financial problem in the previous book. Well, we were wrong this book is just as funny as the first with Becky just as clumsy as the previous book. This time she is going to New York with Luke. It was great just make sure you read this 5 book set in order.

When I started reading this book I thought Becky was pretty immature. But I kept on reading anyway, I started liking more as I read. The book is funny and you will bond with the characters. It's a great book to read on your free time.

Great book that was very witty and entertaining. I sat down and read it in the Park in one afternoon. COuldn't put it down. The only problem is I feel let down when the book ends, I always want more.

i thoroughly enjoyed the first book, but i found the second book to be a little excessive and over the top. i found myself actually rooting AGAINST becky and her annoying excesses. i think it's best to stop after the first.

I couldn't believe my luck when I walked past this in B&N three days ago. I snatched it off of the shelf, and quickly began to read. I had read the first book, Confessions of a Shopaholic, in a day's time. Now, a sequel! In this novel, lovable Becky Bloomwood takes us through her newest personal and shopping mishaps, and one step better, she samples US shops for the first time! Anyone with a love for a realistic character, anyone who's a shopaholic themselves will get tremendous entertainment from this book. I read this in a day's time (just like the first novel).

Gals will enjoy reading this book whose primary character, young Becky Bloomwood, lives in London and is employed as a "financial expert" on a TV show. Ironically however, Becky cannot control her spending and narrowly misses a number of financial circumstances with catastrophic consequences. As Publisher's Weekly states, her boyfriend "Luke, runs a financial PR agency, and when he gets the green light to open an office in New York City, he brings Becky along. Upon her arrival in the Big Apple, she euphorically discovers Barney's, Saks, Sephora and sample sales but when wind of her shopping excesses gets back to the British press, she loses both her relationship and her TV job. Becky manages to save the day in predictably winning fashion, with plenty of comic moments along the way." This is a light read, holding the reader's attention to see "what happens to Becky next." Pure fun!

Great book

Okay but the good ending was worth it. This is the third book I've read from this author, and so far, my favorite is still The Undomestic Goddess. Rebecca's thoughts were funny but not hilarious. I felt like I was waiting most of the time, waiting for something more funny or bad to happen. When it did, that's when things got more interesting, but that's near the end of the book already. I liked how things wrapped up, and it was very sweet how things worked out for Luke and Rebecca. The ending made the read worth it but the ride was not the best.

The beach read for July is Shopaholic Takes Manhattan by Sophie Kinsella. Synopsis: Rebecca is now a television personality on Morning Coffee. She has managed to befriend Mr. Smeath but he has news of his own. He will no longer be in charge of her account at Endwich Bank. Of course there is shopping! Rebecca really wants to see her relationship grow with Luke. He stays busy with work and Rebecca lets him set the pace of the relationship. The game changer comes when Luke asks Rebecca to move to New York with him. Will Rebecca be able to survive New York! Will Saks Fifth Avenue survive the Shopaholic? Will Luke become more committed? My Thoughts: I did not love this book. Ms. Kinsella does a wonderful job of creating a superficial and narcissistic character in Rebecca Bloomwood. I felt that the story was a little bit better this time around. I just couldn’t compel myself to finish the book. I guess the humor is a little lost on me. Meg Cabot fans will love this book! Shopping is a theme that runs through this series. Are you a thrifty spender? Do you compulsively shop? Is retail therapy one of your favorite past times? If your answer is yes to this question then you are a Shopaholic?
