    An entertaining novel by author Sophie Kinsella, Confessions Of A Shopaholic is based on the protagonist Becky Bloomwood’s life as a shopaholic, and the lengths her addiction for retail therapy takes her to.

    Summary Of The Book

    Rebecca Bloomwood, the protagonist of Confessions Of A Shopaholic, is a twenty five year old journalist. She appears to have an enviable lifestyle, a job writing for the Successful Saving magazine, an apartment in one of London’s upmarket neighbourhoods, a bunch of glamorous socialite friends, and a wardrobe filled with designer clothes. The only problem is, she can’t afford any of these things as she has a weakness, she can’t seem to stop herself from shopping. From designer silk blouses hanging in London’s pricey boutiques, to the perfect pair of shoes, Becky craves to have it all, no matter what the cost, or how low the balance in her account might be.

    As stacks of unpaid bills and credit card payments start piling up, and banks come calling to collect their dues, her life seems to be spiralling out of control and she seems inches away from losing it all. She tries taking control and even earning more money, but to no avail. In fact, her addiction to retail therapy only seems to grow stronger as she tries to console herself from her financial worries by indulging in just a little more shopping.

    Bored of her job offering financial advice to readers, which could not be further away from her own life, she finally has an opportunity at writing a new article that could really open doors for her, and save her from ruin. When her article gets published on the front page of a publication, it starts off an interesting turn of events leading us to wonder whether Becky can untangle herself from her troubles and addiction, and find true love and a happy ending.

    Confessions Of A Shopaholic was well received and picked up in 2009 to be made into a major Hollywood production starring Isla Fisher in the lead role. It also set into motion an entire series of 6 shopaholic novels, many of which have been considered by Hollywood studios.

    Be a part of Becky's wonderful world

    Any time you're feeling down and out, this the series that you'v got to get! It will cheer you up instantly. I have read everything in the Becky Bloomwood series and I absolutely love her antics. I ofcourse don't agree with her shopaholic habits but she does learn a lesson at the end (or does she?). Injected with loads of humour, Becky is one lady who you will begin to adore for her honesty, emotion and pure wit. Read the books in the correct order and you will love being a part of her life! ...

    Superb read

    Lovely piece of writing. Reaction of the protagonist, Rebecca...at most situations can be related to our own experiences at various circumstances. The witty and humorous ways in which Rebecca describes the situations makes it a very entertaining read.

    A fairy tale..!!

    The story revolves around a girl who lives in a world of her own or rather i shall say a web that she has woven around her self. Most of the things are her figment of imagination but as the story proceeds the protagonist's dream comes true and she comes up as a star in her life as well as other's life. But being a shopaholic she gets back to square one.I could connect with the story as even i cannot refrain myself from buying things no matter if i have money or not...
    A must read for shopahol...
