Review : Shopaholic and Sister by Sophie Kinsella

Tittle : Shopaholic and Sister (Shopaholic #4)
Author : Sophie Kinsella
Publication date : November 28, 2006 by Dell

You may wonder why it took me so long to review the fourth book of the shopaholic series. The reason is quite simple, actually, because I wasn't impressed by the third book. I mean, the plot was getting repetitive and in the third book, Becky became the most annoying character ever. So yeah, I ended up abandoning this series for a while.

Becky and Luke were on their honeymoon. They seemed like the happiest couple on Earth and Becky thought nothing bad would happen to their marriage. On the tenth month of their around the world journey, Becky felt she was ready to go home, and to her surprise, Luke felt the same way too. But when she came back, things weren't as she wished them to be. Suze had a new best friend and Becky felt left behind, and her parents announced that she had a long lost sister!

The first few chapters of Shopaholic & Sister didn't really impressed me. Becky still has thing shopping addiction, however the amount is severely reduced *winks*. It's more like, she still loves shopping, but she's not that addicted anymore (does that make sense?) And to my surprise, I cannot tell you how impressed I am by this fourth book. I loved every bit of it. So far this is my favorite book of the series.

Becky, though annoying in the first three books, has grown up a lot in Shopaholic & Sister . To me, she seems more mature and she is willing to sacrifice everyone's good. I mean, since Becky is kind of careless girl, seeing her act like an adult is a good thing. People changes, so does Becky (for the better, course).

Shopaholic & Sister has more depth than its prequels and yes, it makes me laugh and cry at the same time. Well, those other three books only made me giggle, that's all. I definitely recommend this book for those of you who quit reading after the third book. This one should worth your time!

5 rating for this novel. Gosh, I can't believe I gave 5 for a shopaholic book *giggles*. Oh, this must be one of my guilty pleasure reads! Now, how about you? Have you read this series, or did you quit because you were annoyed?
