Shopaholic Ties the Knot ~ Sophie Kinsella
***review by Mercedes
Ah, Becky Bloomwood... What can I say? This series keeps me coming back and yet when I'm in the middle of one of Becky's outrageous episodes, I can't help but wonder why. Becky is quite the creation and I know I could never spend more than ten minutes with her if she was a real person. So frustrating, so materialistic, and so clueless at times, yet I still feel bad for her, even when the predicament is of her own making, and I'm always cheering for her by the end because of the way she's fixed things. That I guess is why I keep reading (not to mention that I love her boyfriend, now husband, Luke. What a gem! But why he puts up with Becky is a mystery.) I don't know the names of designers like Becky does. I haven't got a clue about fashion like Becky does. I don't live and work with people who have more money than they know what to do with like Becky does. I guess that's the point of reading a book. It takes you into a place, a world, a scenario that is foreign to you and lets you experience it for yourself. And Becky's world is fun (not to mention fairly miraculous - I'd like my financial troubles to be settles as fantastically as Becky's are). So I'll keep reading Kinsella's engaging books because even when Becky's driving me mad, I'm enjoying myself.
