I found myself laughing out loud throughout Becky's adventures in pregnancy. From her obsession with shopping in all the chic baby boutiques, to ordering online and from the glossy upscale catalogues, to investing in "antiques of the future" for her baby's portfolio, Becky was in fine form. Now working (more or less) as a personal shopper at a laughingstock of a store, Becky finds ways to make it soar while enlisting the help of an old friend. Familiar characters like Suz, Mr. and Mrs. Bloomwood, Janice, Tom, Jess, and of course Luke, are all featured prominently as Becky goes in search of the A-list obstetrician, the choice of all the glam people, only to discover she is Luke's ex-girlfriend and still carries a torch for him. SHOPAHOLIC & BABY is one misunderstanding after another, although it begins to look like maybe Becky isn't really misunderstanding anything at all. Is Luke really having an affair With Venetia? Will Becky allow this woman to deliver her baby? And what about all those baby strollers she bought? Will she be able to keep them all?  Quite simply, it is funny, believable and has a mother who readers should be able to relate to - or actually a mother-to-be. From the first days of pregnancy to other decisions, large and small, she is eccentric and lovable, in her own quirky way, fuming at her husband as he juggles business and HER needs, getting in debates with him about whether to learn the gender of the baby during an ultrasound, etc..great read. Trust me...

While I have enjoyed previous Shopaholic books we could have done without this one. Becky is so incredibly stupid you just can't believe the things she does. She is a spoiled brat and so obsessed with herself. The inaccuracies regarding pregnancy were appauling as well. No one gets an epidural while they are in labor and who would believe her water had broken when it really hadn't. Stick to shopping!

My main issue with this book is that the main character never seems to learn anything from her mishaps in previous books. Thus, it seems as if I'm reading the exact same book repeatedly. There is no growth in her she makes the same mistakes over and over and over. I hope the next book in the series finds her just a little wiser and a little more mature.

Working at a bookstore has a few perks. I received an advanced copy of Shopaholic and Baby and finished it moments ago. Reading about Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) again is like seeing an old friend after years apart and yet being able to fall easily back in sync as if no time has passed. The Shopaholic books are rare for the fact that they make me laugh out loud, and the latest work is no exception. Though some of the plotlines are a bit darker than previous, Kinsella still sprinkles even the most somber moments with wit which you have to read twice because you laugh too hard the first time through and lose your place. Or maybe that's just me. Either way, I highly recommend this and all the books in the Shopaholic series.

I was really looking forward to this book and I was not disappointed it was nice to be with Becky again through this new step in her life. There was challenges as there always is in life, but more so as Becky gets herself into trouble yet again. While she seems to correct her mistakes more quickly and actual goes to Luke instead of keeping it a secret until a major problem it still seems that her financial problems continue. Becky even though she can be self absorbed in her shopping she is always there for those she cares about.
