    4.5 5 starsI am a big Sophie Kinsella fan and a huge fan of the Shopaholic series Christmas Shopaholic is the ninth book in the Shopaholic series The eighth book was written in 2015 So it has been a few years since I read the last book I read it when it came out.I was so excited when I found out that there was going to be a new book in this series This series is Chick Lit The narrator is Becky 1st person POV.Can you read this book without having read the previous books in the series Y 4.5 5 starsI am a big Sophie Kinsella fan and a huge fan of the Shopaholic series Christmas Shopaholic is the ninth book in the Shopaholic series The eighth book was written in 2015 So it has been a few years since I read the last book I read it when it came out.I was so excited when I found out that there was going to be a new book in this series This series is Chick Lit The narrator is Becky 1st person POV.Can you read this book without having read the previous books in the series You would definitely be able to follow the story without having read any of the other books However, I feel like this book was meant for fans of the series You would not know any of the backstory or know any of the characters For me most of this book is about Becky and her relationships And I don t feel like it would be the same experience to read this book without knowing any of her story.In Christmas Shopaholic Becky is supposed to host Christmas for the first time The book is about all of the mishaps that occur during the time leading up to the holiday And then we get to experience Christmas Shopaholic style.Becky can be a bit much at times The author has to balance her crazy buying habits with humor There is a fine line between finding Becky charming and adorable and finding her spending ridiculous.This book features all of our favorite characters We get to see Becky s husband Luke, her daughter Minnie, her mom and dad, her sister Jess, her best friend Suze, and her mom s best friend Janice It was honestly so nice to be able to revisit all of these amazing characters They made this book so special.This story takes place around Christmastime And there is some really funny stuff in this book In the very beginning I found a few things annoying But the author knows exactly how to write this character And the last half was superb The stuff with her new friend Steph was amazing The stuff with the billiard s club was beyond funny One of my favorite things about this series is how the author seems to tie so much stuff together Becky will buy something or do something and it seems ridiculous at the time But then somehow it will become relevant later in the book There were so many things that happened earlier in this book that got brought back into the story in a brilliant way Kudos to the author for being able to do this seamlessly.Overall I really enjoyed this book The last chapters of this book were perfection And the ending was epic If you loved the previous books in this series then you will love this newest book Thank you so much to netgalley and Random House Publishing Group Random House The Dial Press for allowing me to read this book This is one of my most anticipated reads I love Becky

    It has been quite a while since I ve read one of the Shopaholic books and it s safe for me to say that Becky has grown somewhat She still makes bad choices with her shopping, and now she is also making bad choices about how she appears to others maybe she always has, but mainly I m reading this as a standalone instead of part of the series it has been that long since I ve read one of these Becky may be flighty at times and worry too much about what others think of her, but she is a goo It has been quite a while since I ve read one of the Shopaholic books and it s safe for me to say that Becky has grown somewhat She still makes bad choices with her shopping, and now she is also making bad choices about how she appears to others maybe she always has, but mainly I m reading this as a standalone instead of part of the series it has been that long since I ve read one of these Becky may be flighty at times and worry too much about what others think of her, but she is a good mother, a warm person and a very caring friend daughter and sister.She has a lot of cringe worthy moments in this book, and at times the book seems to make little sense for me it was the hamster scene However, everything works out in the end.I think one of the reasons I had some problems with this story line is that I see too much of myself in Becky s character I also shop for what I think I ll need in the future store things away and then forget about them and do most of my shopping from the computer and get stuck with things that aren t quite right Another problem I had was with her sister half step Jess, and her ridiculous to me demands on what is appropriate to spend your money on after all, it s your cash and your business what you do with it.A fun, funny, light and fast read that brings the spirit of Christmas to the fore ARC supplied by the publisher
