A 2012 World Book Night selection.
Meet Rebecca Bloomwood, financial journalist, financial disaster. She is also one of the most hilarious characters you’ll meet for a long time and one you can truly empathise with. It is the same book as Confessions of a Shopaholic which was filmed. Sophie used to write for a slightly older age group under the name of Madeleine Wickham. I love her books too!
A "Piece of Passion" from the publisher...
‘When Becky Bloomwood burst into our lives in The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic it was a breath of fresh air. Here was a heroine that we could actually relate to (and who made us all feel a little better about our secret spending habits). Laugh-out-loud funny, clever, touching, and always fabulous, the Shopaholic series has gone on to become THE must have purchase for women everywhere.' Sophie Holmes, Transworld Digital
Meet Rebecca Bloomwood.
She's a journalist. She spends her working life telling others how to manage their money. She spends her leisure time…shopping.
Retail therapy is the answer to all her problems. She knows she should stop, but she can't. She tries Cutting Back, she tries Making More Money. But neither seems to work. The stories she concocts become more and more fantastic as she tries to untangle her increasingly dire financial difficulties. Her only comfort is to buy herself something - just a little something...
Can Becky ever escape from this dream world, find true love, and regain the use of her Switch card?
The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic...
The perfect pick me up for when it's all hanging in the (bank) balance.
