I can’t believe how much I love this book. I can’t stop thinking about it. Yes, Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight is not some brilliant work of fiction. It’s not a fine wine. It’s crack. I want to know what happens to Edward and Bella. Yet, I’m also scared to read the rest of the series too quickly. I’m going through withdrawal now, but what’ll I feel when I have no other books to look forward to? It'll be torturous! I didn’t know I was going to become so obsessed with this book. I’m even excited for the movie. Who could predict that a book written about teens and vampires could have me so enthralled?

Shopaholic and Baby

Sophie Kinsella has created yet another fabulous novel starring the incomparable Becky Brandon (neé Bloomwood). This installment of Becky’s life tugged at my heartstrings more than the others. She’s pregnant, happy and excited about her future with Luke when along comes the ‘red-haired bitch’. I can’t imagine, during what is supposed to be a magical time for a couple, to have your husband’s super hot ex-girlfriend show up and make a play for him! The way Venetia Carter treats our heroine is reprehensible.

Becky continues to make some crazy choices. She (as always) shops too much. She also makes some great decisions and helps not only her failing company, but Luke’s business as well. If she could only focus her powers, Becky would be unstoppable. She just can’t seem to get over this unstoppable shopping habit. I am excited to see what Becky has in store for us next.
