Confessions of a Shopaholic

Hey dollies,
How have you all been?? I miss you all!! Long time no post hey?! I have been beyond slacking in writing posts but I have been reading all of your blogs! I have been looking for some new blogs to read too that are more about everything cute and fun in life not just reviews on products. I do love product reviews but it can get a bit repetitive. If anyone knows any great girly blogs let me know!! :)

My post today is about my favourite author Sophie Kinsella and her series Confessions of a Shopaholic. Obviously I love everything in my life to be girly and that includes what I read. I've been a student for a very long time so when I do have time off to read I want to give my mind a break and read something fun, refreshing and mindless. All of Sophie Kinsella's books are exactly this! I am sure most of you have seen the movie but I'mn not sure if many people have read the books. I am currently reading Mini Shopaholic which is the last novel in the Shopaholic series. I would recomend anyone who wants a fun read to read any of the books in the series. I absolutely love Rebecca Bloomwood and can relate to so many of her shopping mis-adventures!

                                               Books in the series:
                            ❤❤  Confessions of a Shopaholic
                                          ❤❤    Shopaholic Takes Manhattan
                                          ❤❤    Shopaholic Ties the Knott
                                          ❤❤    Shopaholic & Sister
                                          ❤❤    Shopaholic & Baby
                                          ❤❤    Mini Shopaholic

On Sophie Kinsella's website they also had "Tie In" books of the first book and the second book and then there was one that was the two combined (which is basically the movie minus a lot of important stuff!) I have not read any of these movie books and I do not wish to. I read the books before the movie came out and like most people who read books before you see the movie it was very unaccurate. I know there is not enough time in two hours to put every detail in but they made a lot of changes which I think really changed the story. I don't understand why they had to stuff two books into one movie either. They could have made a whole series and made it  more accurate!
Sophie Kinsella also has a large number of other books as well as another series. I have not read her other series but I have read a few of her other independent novels. My favourites would have to be Twenties Girl and The Undomestic Goddess. They both have great characters that you fall in love with. I honestly did not know about the other series until I checked out the website so they are definetly going on my wishlist!
You can find all these books at:

❤❤ I would love to know what everyone else is reading/recomends. I'm going to need a few new books to read while I am laying out on my deck all summer long!!❤❤

Love you all!!

I love those kinds of books. Perfect for a nice afternoon laying poolside. I'm currently reading Outliers. I'm at the half way point of it so far, but it starting to get a little boring =/
