This festive edition of the series sees Becky faced with hosting Christmas after her parents decide to move to a new apartment in Shoreditch and forgo their usual hosting duties. With the help of her friends and family, Becky navigates the challenges of finding the perfect gifts, preparing the perfect meal, and dealing with unexpected visitors.

Book Review: Christmas Shopaholic

As a newcomer to the series, I found it easy to dive into the story and connect with Becky’s character. Although she can be over-the-top, and some of the scenarios she finds herself in are ridiculous, I appreciated her efforts to keep everyone happy and her determination to make this Christmas one to remember. Fans of the series will undoubtedly be delighted to see Becky back in action and catch up with some familiar faces.

The narrative of Christmas Shopaholic is supported by various sources, including emails, text messages, chat group communication, purchase receipts, and search histories. These extras provide a deeper insight into the events around Becky and help create a more immersive reading experience.

One of the book’s strengths is its ability to capture the spirit of the holiday season. The descriptions of Christmas traditions and festivities are vivid and transport the reader to a world of carols, pudding, and holiday cheer. The book also explores family, friendship, and love themes, which are all the more poignant during this time of year.

Overall, Christmas Shopaholic is a light, fluffy, and entertaining read that will appeal to series fans and anyone looking for a festive-themed book to get them into the holiday spirit. The story may be obscure, but it offers a fun and heartwarming escape from the stresses of the holiday season. And with just over 60 shopping days until Christmas, now is the perfect time to pick up a copy and start getting in the holiday mood.

Sophie Kinsella is a renowned author with many bestselling books under her belt, including the Shopaholic series, which began with The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic. If you’re a fan of Kinsella’s work, you might also enjoy her standalone novel, Can You Keep a Secret?
