#BookReview: Christmas Shopaholic (Shopaholic #9) by Sophie Kinsella






Synopsis: Celebrate Christmas with the ultimate Shopaholic! 

The brilliant laugh-out-loud festive novel from the Number One bestselling author.

Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) adores Christmas. It's always the same – Mum and Dad hosting, carols playing, Mum pretending she made the Christmas pudding, and the next-door neighbours coming round for sherry in their terrible festive jumpers.

And now it's even easier with online bargain-shopping sites – if you spend enough you even get free delivery. Sorted!

But this year looks set to be different. Unable to resist the draw of craft beer and smashed avocado, Becky's parents are moving to ultra-trendy Shoreditch and have asked Becky if she'll host Christmas this year. What could possibly go wrong?

With sister Jess demanding a vegan turkey, husband Luke determined that he just wants aftershave again, and little Minnie insisting on a very specific picnic hamper – surely Becky can manage all this, as well as the surprise appearance of an old boyfriend and his pushy new girlfriend, whose motives are far from clear . . .

Will chaos ensue, or will Becky manage to bring comfort and joy to Christmas?

My Review: I am sad to say that this one wasn't as interesting as I was hoping for.  I wanted to love it but sadly I just didn't. These shopaholic tales are just kind of getting out hand and this girl needs some real help. 











Review

“Fans can expect all the humor, charm and classic misadventures they have come to love about the Shopaholic series.”Bustle
  
“The return of Kinsella’s quirky and lovable characters who show genuine connection is reason enough to enjoy this story, but watching Becky overcome obstacles, self-imposed or otherwise, is inspirational. Readers might come for the laughs, but they’ll leave with a warm heart.”Library Journal (starred review)
 
“Becky is still a hardworking, eminently lovable character who just wants to do the right thing, even if she usually screws everything up and finds herself in hilariously awful situations. . . . A laugh-out-loud funny book that will delight longtime Kinsella fans and those looking for a cozy holiday story.”Kirkus Reviews
 
“It’s been four long years since Becky Brandon, née Bloomwood, graced readers with a lighthearted adventure full of humor, warmth, and shopping. . . . Longtime fans will welcome Becky's return, but even readers new to the Shopaholic world will connect with the themes of the sandwich generation, marriage woes, and holiday spectacles that can threaten any family gathering.”Booklist
 
“Becky and Christmas are just the perfect combination, and this book is funnier and more loveable than ever.”—Jenny Colgan
 
“A perfect Christmas read, laced with humor, that has plenty to empathize with. A joyful, funny novel.”—Catherine Alliott
 
“As sparkly as a Christmas tree and full of festive joy, this one's a total cracker.”—Lucy Diamond
