“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?

I think this is one of my least favorite Shopaholic novels by far. It just seemed like filler in my opinion.

I have to agree with the previous reviewer, this book was one of my favorites out of the Shopoholic series thus far. Becky grows as a character the most during this novel. It is also amusing to watch the character try to hold it all together all while battling her shopping addiction. This book is definitely a great choice for a good light read.

This was my favourite of all the Shopaholic books. The book has the usual crazy impulsive Becky stories where she spends 99% of her time trying to patch up the holes in her life in an attempt to keep everything from falling apart. But this one was my favourite because I thought Becky had learned the most from this experience and she came out of the disaster a more mature, although not really smarter, person. I re-read this series many times and the more I read this book, the more I love it.

The Shopaholic saga continues in Book 2. The heroine, Becky Bloomwood, moves to New York with her boyfriend and is expecting it to be a smashing success. Despite all her good intentions, she once again falls into old habits and must find her way out of her self-made disaster. If you liked the first one, this sequel is a pretty safe bet!
