Book Review X

Book Review Title: Shopaholic Ties the Knot Author: Sophie Kinsella Genre: Chick Lit Summary: Becky gets to have her dream wedding and money is no object. The only problem now is to decide what her dream wedding is -- a ceremony at the Plaza or a service in her parents' backyard. What was Good: Becky still has her problems with shopping. Instead of being able to buy everything and run up her credit cards again, she cannot decide on any one thing. One dress, one cake and one wedding seem so limiting, when viewed through Becky's eyes. What wasn't: Even though Becky has a problem with buying too much, it would seem like she would be able to make decisions better than she did. The Take-Away: This was a fantastic break from the "normal" Shopoholic novel. It kept the character quite real. Recommendation: Read it the day after you read Shopaholic Takes Manhattan. There's no such thing as too much Becky.
