The 'Shopaholic' ones are best read in order. So;

The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic
Shopaholic Abroad
Shopaholic Ties the Knot
Shopaholic and Sister
Shopaholic and Baby

Can You Keep a Secret? and Undomestic Goddess can be read alone.

Hope that helps. :)

You don't have to read the books in order that's if you don't want too!:)

Have you read the sequels? They're a bit samey but still a nice, light, good fun read! :)

I love Sophie Kinsella and wish she would write faster :)

My sister hated reading but I got her into it with Sophie. Now she's nicking my books before I've finished them.

I love the way Becki thinks like me :) I'm not quite the bimbo she is (I hope) or as bad as money as she is, but some of the things she thinks/her excuses are as if she's mind reading me. The Shopaholic film's coming out...I don't think it's going to be as good as it could be...especially as it looks as if it's Americanised.

I have read Confessions of a Shopaholic, Shopaholic Abroad, and Shopaholic and Baby and you can still make sense if you haven't read some of them. It gives you little bits of missed information and you can still enjoy the book.

I enjoy her books - I havent read "REmember me" is it one of the shopaholic ones? - have you also read the other books she writes under her other name - my mind is blank at the moment cant remember the names but they are all good reads too:D

No, it's not part of the Shopaholic series and I wasn't as impressed by it as I was as them. It's not too bad for a quick, chick lit read.

I have read the Shopaholic series, 'The Undomestic Goddess', 'Remember Me?', my favourite is 'Can you keep a Secret?' :woohoo:


same here :) although I got a few laughs for "Remember me?" (main character's name is Lexi :drama:)

and for those who haven't read shopaholic series, there is no need to read them in any order (although I had). :lol:

I've read all her books too but none of the ones where she was writing as Madeleine Wickham.

I really enjoyed Remember Me? I thought it was funny and found it so easy to read, I finished it in just a few days :)

I plan on reading Remember Me next. Should start it within the next few days.

I've already 'heard' it though. I couldn't wait for the paperback and I don't like hardbacks so I splashed out on the audio version a few months ago.

Thought it was pretty good but I'd like to see how it goes when I actually read it.

I've liked Kinsella's other books (Can You Keep A Secret? being my favourite) so I expect big things from this one.

They are so light-hearted and full of escapism - two things I love in a book.
