My Review of Shopaholic to the Stars by Sophie Kinsella

 
Shopaholic to the Stars by Sophie Kinsella is the long awaited sequel to the Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) series and I'm sooo excited to be reviewing this for you!
 
 

What They Say:

Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) is in Hollywood! It's as if all her life has been leading to this moment. She's hanging out with the stars . or at least she will be, when she finally gets to meet movie superstar Sage Seymour, whom husband Luke is now managing.

There's so much to see and do! And getting Minnie through the hurdles for her A-list Hollywood pre-school will require some.er.help.

Becky sets her heart on a new career - she's going to be a celebrity stylist. Red carpet, here she comes! But Becky soon finds it's tough in Tinseltown. Luckily her best friend Suze comes over to keep her company, and together they embark on the Hollywood insider trail. But somehow...things aren't quite working out as they'd hoped.

Then Becky's big chance comes, and it's an opportunity that money can't buy. But will it cost her too much?

What I Say:

First off, SQUEEEEEE!! I got asked to review a Sophie Kinsella book! OMG! Blogger dream come true! I didn't even have to ask for it or anything!

Ok, fangirl moment over...

Right, so. This book sees Becky, Luke and little Minnie in Hollywood as Luke works with mega star, Sage Seymour and Becky tries to become a stylist to the stars. The whole old gang is here. Tarky, Suze, Mum and Dad, Minnie (who is SO cute!). It's been great to re-visit old friends.

This book is every bit as funny (laugh out loud funny!!) as the previous Shopaholic books. Sophie's writing cracks me up! Becky is just a legend, a cringey legend. There are moments when I actually felt myself blush for Becky! So funny.

Luke and Becky have their ups and downs, like any couple, but I think Luke is a saint, the way he puts up with Becky shenanigans sometimes. I don't think I've ever met a real man like that, I'm not even sure they exist but a girl can dream, can't she? It's also been great catching up with Minnie, who is now an adorable little girl who know her own mind and wants everyone to know it too. Tarquin and Suze's brood has grown up too and it's lovely to catch up with them too. They seem to have their hands full but take it all in their stride.

I really enjoyed Shopaholic to the Stars and think Sophie has done a great job carrying Becky and Luke's story on to the next level.

Like I said, it's been wonderful catching up with old friends and I think it has been perfect. I hope we will get to see them again.  9/10

Thanks to Majama Tutani at Transworld and Sophie Kinsella for my (gorgeous) ARC copy in exchange for my honest review.

Blog Tour Stop with Extract - When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for  When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May! I have an exclusive extract for you today!


What They Say:
Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…
Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse! But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…
Chapter One
Surely, I’m not qualified to be a matchmaker?!
You’d think getting a job at a dating agency might actually require you to have found love, or at least be good at dating, but apparently not. I’ve been single for three years and I haven’t had a date for six months, yet I’m pretty sure I’m nailing this interview. ‘So, what kind of message would you send Eri…
