Quotes & Awards

  • “A hilarious tale…hijinks worthy of classic I Love Lucy episodes …too good to pass up.”

    USA Today

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shar | 2/18/2014

    " The most useless character I've ever read about. The most useless book I have (it was a gift). I can't believe that people spend money for stuff like this! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gemma Cain | 2/14/2014

    " An easy read, total chick-lit and nothing to serious. Enjoyed the book but unsure I will invest the time to read the others in the series as I don't know where else it could really go without getting old "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matimate | 1/26/2014

    " Beautiful things and designer things have something in common, they are seldom cheap. However our heroine loved them to the point of getting herself in circle of debts. However despite her cravings and problems, you fell in love with her and you are crossing fingers for her to get out of the debts and to have all those pretty things which she liked. I enjoyed this book a lot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alena | 1/24/2014

    " This is the microwave popcorn of books for me - easy, tasty, I can finish it off in one sitting... but I'm hungry again a couple hours later. It's no Bridget Jones, but as far as chicklit goes, it's enjoyable and fun. Becky is a funny character, and I can sadly relate to her elaborate daydreams. However, the ludicrous situations she gets into are a bit too much over the top, and give me quite a bit of second-hand embarrassment! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue Brookes | 1/18/2014

    " This book started out not so good, and having just finished Twenties Girl which I loved from cover to cover, I was a little dissapointed. But I stuck with it and was glad I did so as i ended up really enjoying it and sorry to come to the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol Howell | 1/8/2014

    " My daughter recommended Sophie Kinsella. Her books are like jello for the brain. A nice way to relax without working at it! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dionna Johnson | 12/7/2013

    " This probably would have been a good book but I just couldn't get with the setting being in London and I had no clue what pounds were or the places the author was talking about so I stopped reading. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melanie Gray | 12/6/2013

    " Rebecca Bloomwood how funny are these books , an absolute laugh out loud from start to finish. I've read all of her books she's a great feel good writer that lets you escape. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maria | 11/9/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dianne | 6/26/2013

    " I hate to admit how well I can relate to the character in this book. She, of course, is much more extreme than I ever was. While not likely to become a literary classic, it was a fun read. "

    " I've read mixed reviews about this so I wasn't expecting so much. Surprisingly, I actually liked it. Becky really amazed me. Personal Shopper would be a perfect job for her I think. hehe "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sigourney | 5/21/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meghan | 3/1/2012

    " I liked this book, but I as I read I felt as panicked as Becky was when the bills came in. It was a weird sensation. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marcena | 1/10/2012

    " I've watch the movie and I just recently read the book. The book is way way different from the movie. I kinda like the movie more because the story of this book is very short but I still like it. I was really motivated/inspired to shop more because of reading this piece. "
