I listened to this talking book last winter. It was a funny, a bit quirky and all in all a good chick lit read. Another Kinsella classic. It was great to listen to the CDs. I couldnt put my earphones down.
This is a story of a woman who lost 3 years of her memory. When she woke up from an accident, the last 3 years of her life totally vanished from her brain. It felt like she woke up from being Cinderella to a Princess on Prince Charming’s arms. The fun part was when she starts discovering what she’s become and what she really should be.
This link shows the first few pages of the book. See for yourself and I am sure you’lll grab a copy if you havent read it yet.
Shopaholic and Baby by Sophie Kinsella
Becky’s life is blooming! She’s working at London’s newest big store, The Look, house hunting with husband (her secret wish is a Shoe Room)..and she’s pregnant!

Everything has got to be perfect for her baby: from the designer nursery…to the latest, coolest pram…to the celebrity must-have obstetrician.
But when the celebrity obstetrician turns out to be Luke’s glamorous ex-girlfriend, Becky’s perfect world starts to crumble, She’s shopping for two.. but are there three in her marriage.
Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic and baby novel came out sometime in February this year., shortly after I’ve read all her books from this series. I am not sure why I did not go and buy it then right away. Somehow, I manage to have forgotten it. On my last library visit, I went straight to the fiction section under author “K” and was glad that this book was there. I borrowed it amongst my other stash of DVDs, books and audio CD.
As soon as I had the book in my hand I couldn’t let it go. Becky makes me laugh. The main character of the book is just a little hilarious and down right ridiculous at times. I loved this story. It is a good read. I await Kinsella’s next novel.
