Book Review: Shopaholic to the Stars by Sophie Kinsella


So, here's the new book in the famous Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella! It's called Shopaholic to the Stars

Rebecca aka Becky Brandon is dreaming big, well very big. She comes to LA with her husband Luke and daughter Minnie, for few days (though she doesn't want to return ever!). 

She wants to make new friends in Minnie's school but there she meets her old enemy, Alicia (aka Alicia bitch long legs) who is very popular among other moms. Her friendship mission is in danger.

She dreams to be friends with Hollywood star Sage Seymour (Hopes to have a coffee with her and she is almost there!) and wants to become a personal shopper and eventually her personal stylist.

How her desperate dreams and efforts land her (Or maybe her husband Luke) into conflict and trouble, this book tells all about that.

Well, I really like Sophie Kinsella books! I loved I’ve Got Your Number and really liked Twenties Girl. I almost finished these big fat books in two-three sittings, but, for me this book was not very smooth (As expected).

No doubt Sophie Kinsella makes me smile or even laugh. This book indeed has some humourous situations and funny moments. Becky's well being session in Golden Peace is really funny, but, I think the story is not strong enough to carry this big fat book entertainingly. Sometimes, I felt that the book book has been stretched with some very casual and prolonged situations and unnecessary dialogues.

I loved the cover! It's very apt.

The writing is as usual light and funny but it lacked the standard wit of Kinsella. It was a nice read but I was a little disappointed (I feel really bad while writing this). I feel this Shopaholic series should end now.

I got this book from Random House India for an unbiased review.


  1. I have always enjoyed Sophie Kinsella's books :)

    And I like the honesty you always have in your reviews.

  2. I like your reviews.The cover page itself is gorgeous. By seeing and reading the review I feel like grabbing that book.
    But to be frank enough I am a person who has time seldomto sit with books.My reading is restricted to news papers, one or two magazines and blog-posts.

    1. Thank you! :)

      It's a big fat book but if it's your first book by Sophie Kinsella, you can read it.
