I loved this book! It was a great light read, and all of the moments in it made me laugh. I think that many of us can relate to Becky Bloomwood and will be rooting for her to conquer her problems throughout the entire book. The entire series is great, and the characters just get better and better. If you are a fan of comedy or just need a light read, this book is perfect for you. It is an easy story, but it's really fun! I've found myself hoping for another book starring the shopaholic every time I finish the last, and I hope they're not over yet!

Confessions is a great read! though, it really makes one wonder just how much of a facade the average person has, especially as they try to fit a budget into their lives. Becky finds this out as she tries a spending diary. All aspects of the book are very "real world" and most readers will find themselves in some situation similar to Kinsella's story. Mostly funny and sometimes you have to shake your head at the antics of Becky. A great read for young adults and up. A story most will relate to!

Dealing with money in this world is hard! Just ask Becky Blomwood. Becky is a "Shopaholic" and is about $2000 dollars in debt. With the help of her friends and the "hunky" new boss at work Becky will over come dreaded obstacles like Sales at stores, Visa bills and land lords. Confessions of a Shopaholic will sure to make you laugh and I would recommend this book to anyone over the age of 12.

Shopaholic Becky Bloomwood is my new best friend! Although my situation has never been as bad as hers, I could relate to her endless attempts to pull herself out of debt, having tried most of them! Whenever she found herself down and out, I wanted to be there to give her a big hug! Her positive attitude and humorous outlook on money and shopping had me laughing throughout the book! I can't wait to read more of Becky's adventures!
