"Shopaholic" Series

While this may not interest my more “serious” readers, I’ve become addicted to the "Shopaholic" book series by Sophie Kinsella.

Honestly, I need something to break up the monotony of graduate school and all of the autoimmune illness reading I’ve been doing. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t be doing it if I didn’t want to, but life also requires something on the lighter side, as well. And this has fit the bill perfectly.

I’ve read the first three books in the series, “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” “Shopaholic Takes Manhattan,” and “Shopaholic Ties the Knot,” and I’m planning on buying the latest two!


  1. Those kinds of books are always fun to read :) They take your mind off of your worries and just provide a good little distraction. I might have to read one one day.

  2. I agree! And your welcome to borrow one anytime! It may just take your mind off of your worries...

  3. Ha! I totally indulge in those books, too--a welcome break from writing and heavy research!! I am also quite fond of Marian Keyes and Jane Green, too :) Guilty pleasure....

  4. I'm glad I'm not the only one, Laurie!
