    When Confessions of a Shopaholic ended I felt empowered and hopeful that Rebecca was making a permanent change in her life. Then I picked up Shopaholic Takes Manhattan. She is back at square one and things eventually really blow up in her face. I'm hopeful that this time the change will stick, but if it doesn't then the third book in the series may just be my last.

    For someone so smart, Rebecca sure is dumb and that started to really get on my nerves. Her recklessness just wasn't funny anymore. There are some funny moments, but it was a bit harder for me to get through this book.

    Fun and frothy

    It's been a while since I last read a Shopaholic book. I thought the author was recycling some solutions from other books she wrote and that that was pretty lame. Turns out I already read this about 10 years ago under the title Shopaholic takes Manhatten...! :-)The book is pretty much okay. Becky gets on my nerves for not learning from her past mistakes and making the same ones. But she's really sweet and caring too and that sort of endears her to me as well. Still, I much prefer the other books by Sophie Kinsella, the non-Shopaholic books. Same naive characters, but endearing as well, good stories and funnier than this series.

    I really love Becky, she's like a kindred spirit. I don't exactly have a crazy out of control shopping problem but I could...it's not far of. I definitely have an extreme attachment to some of the stuff that I have bought for now logical purpose. "10 yards of Doctor Seuss ribbon, I totally needed that, it was a bargain, 10 yards was cheaper than buying just 1. It will come in handy one day."

    This book was so much fun to read and I enjoyed how she came out on top in the end, that's a good message to have. No matter what kind of deep hole that you dig yourself in you have the power to get yourself out again with a little bit a creativity and some help from your friends and family. :)

    This sequel was more enjoyable than the first, although I spent the first half of the novel thinking - "come on - isn't this the same story as "Confessions of a Shopaholic"? But I liked the way that Becky takes charge of her life in healthy ways at the end of the novel - and I liked that she finally finds something at which she is genuinely good. It makes her seem smarter and not so obsessed with her appearance.

    I'm glad the character seems to be gaining some depth as a person. She was very superficial and materialist (she is only 26!) and in this book she seems to be learning and growing in a way that makes me happy for her.

    The shopaholic books are always a fun bit of fluff. Once you know Becky Bloomwood, it's fairly easy to guess exactly how her best-laid plans are going to fall apart, but that doesn't make the trip there any less entertaining.
  • (1/5)
    So painful to read I actually closed it and stopped. The main character has reached new lows of being a trainwreck. I hate seeing/reading when people embarrass themselves and there were so many in just the first quarter of the book that I cannot go on!

    If it weren't for the time change last night (blast you "Spring Ahead!") and the fact that I had to get up early today for a work meeting, I would have stayed up late to finish this book. I am in love with the Shopaholic series. It reads as though a real person were telling you the story, not just some author written narrative; I think that's so refreshing! In this second book in the Shopaholic series Becky follows here boyfriend Luke to New York City where he spends his time wheeling and dealing some business deals. Meanwhile, Becky's world soon comes crashing down around her when a defamatory article is published about her. She spends the rest of the novel wallowing a little bit and trying to get her life back together without Luke.I cannot rave enough about how awesome of a writer Sophie Kinsella is. Like I mentioned before, I love her writing style, as well as her rich characters which such distinct personalities and clever plot lines. I can't wait to read the next books in this series. And if you like chick-lit and you've never read a Shopaholic novel, you've got some issues.

    The 2nd book in the Shopaholic series! This book is even better than the first! The characters continue to follow to MANHATTAN. Still written with English Becky in mind, while she attacks the big city, where her shopaholic tendencies only get worse! Must have in any library!

    I'm honestly surprised at how much I love this series- it's wonderful. I actually think I enjoyed this one even more than the previous one. Becky heads to New York with Luke with the intention of making it big. Things don't quite go according to plan though and it turns out to be a hilarious AND heartbreaking story. I honestly loved it from start to finish. It takes a lot for a book to make me laugh out loud and this series certainly achieves that. It can also be very serious at times, which of course makes it feel more realistic. I am really looking forward to reading the next one.

    After reading this, I totally want to go back and visit New York.

    Decent chick lit. Periodically I wanted to throttle Becky for her lack of sense, common or otherwise, but I think that was the point. Ending redeemed it and herself.
  • (3/5)
    I said I didn't like the Shopaholic series, didn't I? I hated flakey Becky with her compulsive shopping disorder. I still do, in fact. Yet I still reads this book in only a little over a day. It's an extremely fast read. I love Sophie's pace even while I hate, hate, hate her character. I read this book mainly because I'm interested how "travel" experiences are handled in chick lit. This book doesn't address travel as I have it in mind, but it still has some interesting issues in it. I loved the last 1/5th of the book. I still don't like (or get) Becky, but I'd recommend this to chick lit lovers and girly girls (and the shopping happy and credit card junkies...)

    I think this was a lot better than the 1st one because me and Becky have more rapport, more history and more familiarity. I still dislike her at times but I feel like a friend who wants to help a friend out. I just want to slap her on the face and make her realize her SICKNESS! haha She seems to hate money a lot, always spending it because she hates it so much! But I actually cried because I felt sad when Becky and Luke broke up. I think they balance each other out. This book showed me a very important lesson, that is if you want to change, you can! As Paulo Coelho said, if you want something all the universe will conspire to help you achieve it. I'm glad that Becky have resolved her problems. Can't wait to read more of her shopping adventures.

    It's brilliant, in this one she goes abroad and finds herself in more hilarious shop-related adventure.
  • (3/5)
    Surprisingly, this one is my least favorite. I have found this reading to be a bit long in the 'what is happening next', please move on.... It was not as funny as all her other ones. But still, very well done.
  • (2/5)
    Again fun light. But Becky's foolishness seems pathological, not funny. It reaches a point where you think, "Nah, she not serious!" Yet the story pushes on and she gets an out...but I could read the series just to say I have. But if I don't it won't matter much.

    I first read Confessions of a Shopaholic and this book, Shopaholic Takes Manhattan, about 11 or 12 years ago. I recently re-read Confessions and picked up this book in the library to see how I liked it now.Shopaholic Takes Manhattan is actually a bit better than the first book, as Becky takes some initiative to resolve her newly acquired debt. In Confessions, she's handed a TV job which solves all her problems, but how often does that happen to women facing bankruptcy?I agree with pussreboots's review - I don't like Luke Brandon as a character either, and don't think he & Becky are at all compatible, but that's the direction the author chose to go. Glad to see someone feels the way I do; everyone mostly seems to adore Luke & Becky :o)I was mildly interested in this book in the two days I was reading it, but I think my Shopaholic re-reading experiment is at an end. Too many of these, I just couldn't take.

    Second in the 'shopaholic' series... which I enjoy a great deal more than I expected to. Becky Bloomwood is a wonderful creation. Despite being appalling with money and constantly in debt, she is friendly, kind and extremely generous. It's ironic that she's the financial advisor on a TV show, and in love with Luke, a wealthy businessman.. yet she cannot give up her strange compulsion to go shopping.

    In this book Luke has the opportunity to go to New York, and (as one might gather from the title) Becky goes too... and, unaware at first of the worth of US dollars, goes a little crazy in some of the shops.

    The pace is great, the style very enjoyable, and - unusually for me - there were two or three places where I almost laughed out loud. A little bad language here and there, but , happily, no explicit bedroom scenes. Definitely recommended to anyone who likes light women's fiction.

    Becky Bloomwood loves to shop. She is addicted to it and just cannot stop despite numerous letters from the bank telling her that she has overdrawn her account again. When her boyfriend asks her to accompany him to Manhattan, she jumps at the chance to visit the store capital of the world. A series of unfortunate events, however, causes her to lose her job, her boyfriend, and her dignity. Does she let this get her down? No, she drives on and ends up landing her dream job in a city that fits her just right. I love this book and it fits well with the rest of the series. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes shopping, romance, and a good read.

    Gah -- it is so difficult to have any sympathy for this heroine, who just repeatedly makes the same poor choices. And the ending is so far-fetched -- SPOILER ALERT!! -I mean, who really recoups all the money they stupidly spent on things they didn't need by auctioning off their goods? What about all the money she spent on non-items (like cab fare and meals)? And in what universe can you get back as much as, if not more, than you paid, selling off designer clothing and accessories?Must be nice to be able to get out of debt so easily!

    This was just as good as the first book -- but do read the other book first.

    Becky is an absolutely maddening character. I wanted to reach into the book and scream at her to just tell the truth already! And yet... I still got a big kick out of the story. It's annoying, yes, but it's also quick and entertaining and just generally a fun read. I don't think it'll survive a third reading, but twice was great.
  • (5/5)
    Becky Bloomwood has such a kind heart but is a little out of touch with her financial reality, bless her heart. She's so funny though and I have to admit, I tried to memorize the name of the website for the sample sales. I kind of felt that Luke was a cow to her though. He didn't tell her he was moving to New York until two weeks before he left and after she had such a bad day, he just ignored her.

    Another great, easy read featuring one of my favorite flakey characters of all time. I love this series.

    In the second installment of Kinsella's Shopaholic Series, Beck is back, this time with her beu, Luke. He decides to follow a life long dream and make his mark on American soil, thus moving to Manhattan and bringing Becky with him. Her financial problems catches up to her and begins to affect her relationship with Luke as well as her career and any hope to salvage it. In fact, Luke blames her for the bad publicity he has recieved from the media, thus unable to close a major buisness deal. Ashamed, Betty breaks up with Luke and heads back to her mother country where she finds crtitical information that can help save Luke's company. Leave it to Becky to get herself into trouble only to figure out not only to save her reputation, career, but that of Luke's as well. I just love how Luke wins her back and how he saves her scarf-which is in the movie. I actually clapped when Luke won her back. Highly enjoyed reading this book! I can not wait for her to get hitched!!!

    Having read Confessions of a Shopaholic and enjoying it, I was excited to read Shopaholic Takes Manhattan. This book was very light and entertaining. Spending money in NYC myself whenever I go, I could relate to Becky. However, I don't purchase the amounts that she did. But I can't dismiss the author's hidden message in the book. Be careful with your money and know why you're spending/shopping. I think she did a good job of making the story funny and easy to read without "preaching" the lesson. I just bought Shopaholic Ties the Knot over the weekend. I'm hoping it's just as good as the first two.

    Kinsella's most beloved character, Becky Bloomwood is back with all of her neuroses and eccentricities! Only this time, Becky gets to exhibit her penchant for the melodramtic in the Big Apple instead of London. Becky is charming and entertaining and her foibles and misteps are endearing as ever.
