Confessions of a Shopaholic is another book from my Rainbow Cover Reading Challenge.  I had a false start with this book–originally starting a couple of weeks ago, but it just wasn’t clicking right away.  I set it aside and decided to come back to it at a later date.  This time I stuck with it, and thoroughly enjoyed the book!

Becky is a woman stuck in a career she doesn’t enjoy.  Both her hobby and therapy are shopping, which quickly spiral out of control.  She just can’t seem to curb her spending and ends up in deep trouble with her bank and credit card company.  Ever resourceful, Becky comes up with several schemes that will help her climb out of debt.  It isn’t until she seeks the good of others that she realizes that her own problems can be dealt with, too.

I like that this story has its hand in several pies, so to speak.  There is the story of Becky’s friendships; the story of her career; the story of her shopping; the story of her love life.  All of these facets seem to be melded and balanced quite well.  Throughout the story we get to see Becky’s truly dizzying logic, which tends to get her into hot water more often than not.  The ridiculous situations she finds herself in are hilarious and extremely cringe-worthy.  I feel like this is a great book for any woman who feels fed up with the daily grind from time to time.  Becky is a heroine you will be able to identify with!

Possible Objections:

  • A mild sexual scene
  • A sprinkling of obscenities

Rating: 4 Stars


Until next time…
