Book Review: Shopaholic To The Stars

What says:

Sophie Kinsella returns to her beloved Shopaholic series with Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) newly arrived in Hollywood and is starry-eyed. She and her two-year-old daughter, Minnie, have relocated to L.A. to join Becky’s husband, Luke, who is there to handle PR for famous actress Sage Seymour. Becky can’t wait to start living the A-list lifestyle, complete with celebrity sightings, yoga retreats, and shopping trips to Rodeo Drive. But she really hopes to become a personal stylist—Sage’s personal stylist—if only Luke would set up an introduction. Then, unexpectedly, Becky is offered the chance to dress Sage’s archrival, and though things become a bit more complicated, it’s a dream come true!

Red carpet premieres, velvet ropes, paparazzi clamouring for attention—suddenly Becky has everything she’s ever wanted.

Or does she?

What I say: This is the perfect book to offset anything that you’ve read recently that’s too serious. I’ve been reading a meal plan book for treating MS with food so it’s been inundating my brain with research. I needed to get lost in a frivolous book so this was perfect. Her books are easy page-turners and it was fun and frolicky. You’re not going to get any smarter reading these books but sometimes our brains need that break. There is even a nifty lesson learnt about craving stardom and is it even worth it in the long run?
