Journal Entry 1 by allbookedup from Wien Bezirk 21 - Floridsdorf, Wien Austria on Wednesday, March 21, 2007

This book has not been rated.

Becky Bloomwood is back and her life is blooming!
She's working at London's newest fashion store The Look, house-hunting with husband Luke (her secret wish is a Shoe Room)... and she's pregnant!
She couldn't be more overjoyed - especially since discovering that shopping cures morning sickness. 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 her husband Luke's glamorous, intellectual ex-girlfriend, Becky's perfect world starts to crumble.
She's shopping for two... but are there three in her marriage?

The book arrived today :-) Thank you, allbookedup! Now I know, what I'll be doing at the weekend ;-) I liked the previous shopaholic books very much and read them quickly, so I expect nothing else from this one...

I'll make a ray out of this book, when I'm finished.

BTW, where did you get that beautiful label?

Finished! I liked the book, although there were some parts that were annoying for me. Those were the moments
when Becky changed her mind about Luke again (I don't want to say more).
I expected to read more about life with the baby, but probably there'll be another book for this (I hope) ;-)

Edit September, 16th: I'll send it to cinda-rella tomorrow.

Welcome back at my place, Becky!
I´m really looking forward to read this book. Unfortunately it has to wait a few days ( because so much work - so little time! ), but I´m sure it´s going to overtake all other books on mtbr ;-)

edit 14.12.07: Meantime I read the book and I pretty much enjoyed it ;-)))
Like in all other books before, Becky managed herself into as much trouble she could´t get. But lovely person she is, she ist always leading herself back on the right way again - with a "little help from her friends"
Had a lot of fun with Becky first time reading the original!

Since Haltestelle wants to be skipped and coco7 to be left out ( she already has the german edition ) I´m now going to ask Annieselan about her adress...

I really like Becky Bloomwood and it was the first time for me to read it in English. It was fun to read but it was also a bit too fantastic sometimes, meaning her perfect pregnancy and soap-a-like-birth of the baby. But that`s chicklit, so why complain? ;-)
I also expected to read more about her life with the baby, but perhaps this will be told in another book? There will be so much shopping to be done...

Thank you for letting me join this ray. I wrote FiBe and asked for her address, so I can send it to her soon.

I love Becky Bloomwood. Kinsella's book was a refreshing change from the meaty ones I have been reading of late. I pulled it ahead of the other bookring I got the same day (shhhh. don't tell) because I needed some brain candy and I got two chicklit bookrings in a row and I wanted to spread out my fluff.

I was hoping for more of Becky and Baby, but I guess I will have to wait for the next installment. This book should maybe have been entitled Shopaholic & Bump as that would have been more apropos. I can't relate to Becky's shopping frenzy, but I laughed anyway at her antics. Only she can buy five prams and get away with it.

Thanks for sharing. It will go out again as soon as I get an address.

March 13: I finished reading the book. I liked it as well as the others! I loved the t-shirt they came up with! Becky is awesome, she always pulls through. I haven't heard of a next one in the series, so who knows if it will continue? :-)

Firstly apolgies for having this one a bit longer than planned - I've had a few rings/rays arrive at once.

There were enough chuckles for me to enjoy this though I think I preferred the earlier ones more. Thanks JennyC for sharing.

Waiting for an address from solskinn and then I'll get this book on it's way.

I finished reading this book already last week, and I must say: I loved it!

I have read another Becky Bloomwood novel before, although in German, and I didn't like it AT ALL. It must have been the translation that I didn't like that much, because in the recent novel I liked Becky, her husband, her friend and I thought the entire story was a hilarious and well told one.
Makes me crave for reading the other Becky Bloomwood novels too! (In English, of course ;)

As soon as I'll get the next reader's address I'll pass the book on. Thanks all for sharing!
