      Important Announcement!   07/28/2018

      Dear BCF members,   This forum has been running now for many years, and over that time we have seen many changes. Generalised forums are nowhere near as popular as they once were, and they have been very much taken over by blogs, vlogs and social media discussions. Running a forum well takes money, and a lot of care and attention, as there is so much which goes on behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.   With all of this in mind, and after discussion within the current moderator team, the decision has been made to close this forum in its current format. I know that this will disappoint a lot of our long term members, but I want to reassure you that it's not a decision which has been taken lightly.    The remaining moderator team have agreed that we do not want to lose everything which is special about our home, and so we are starting a brand new facebook group, so that people can stay in touch, and discussions can continue. We can use it for free and should be easier for us to run (it won't need to be updated or hosted). We know not everyone has FaceBook, but we hope that those of you who are interested will join the group. We will share the link, and send invites as soon as we are ready to go. Added: We may as well get this going, find us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/195289821332924/   The forum will close to new registrations, but will remain open for some time, to allow people to collect up any information, reading lists etc they need to, and to ensure they have contact details for those they wish to stay in touch with.    The whole team feel sad to say goodbye, but we also feel that it's perhaps time and that it feels like the right choice. We hope we can stay in touch with all of you through our new FaceBook group.   I personally want to thank everyone who has helped me moderate the forum, both in the past and the present, and I also want to thank every single person who has visited, and shared their love of books.. I'm so proud of everything we've achieved, and the home we built.   Please visit the new section in the Lounge section to discuss this further, ask questions etc.

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. :)

I loved 'The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic', thought it was a really great book!

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

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.

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.

I am half way through at the moment. I love it! It is very similar to the Samantha Who series on tv. Does anyone else think that?

I'm reading Shopaholic and Sister at the moment but I'm not finding it very good at the moment, shall I keep going? Does it get better?

Shopaholic and Sister isn't the best. In my opinion I think it's the weakest in the Shopaholic series. If you liked the others in the series try to continue but if it's really not gripping you then stop.
