Shopaholic Takes Manhattan


by Sophie Kinsella
-----
The second installment of the series finds Becky Bloomwood falling back into her old financial woes but funnily enough, she has a successful tv career advising others on their financial matters. She is still dating her beau she began dating in the first novel and things are going very well. They end up going to Manhattan with high hopes, but life always seems to get in the way of the best laid plans.

I liked this novel, not as much as the first, but it was still entertaining and funny. My only problem with it is that I had a hard time connecting with the main character. Midway through the book she started to bother me. But, by the end, all had turned out and she learned her lesson and I began liking her again.
-----
I plan on continuing with the series. 3 stars.

Oh, and why am I the only one who seems to have trouble getting paragraphs to show in my posts???? I have to put lines inbetween each one or else it all turns into one big paragraph??? Very annoying... I must be missing something...

Try checking in edit HTML after you've written it. Delete all the div - div's at the end of each paragraph and return. I've found that usually works.

This sounds like a fun series. I hope to get to see the movie sometime...probably not until summer though knowing my luck.
