Shopaholic & Baby
12 journalers for this copy...
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?
Unawatuna Orchid Bamboo *lol*
I'll make a ray out of this book, when I'm finished.
BTW, where did you get that beautiful label?
These Bookcrossers have joined the ray (Location, Shipping):
cinda-rella (Germany, Germany)
Catbook (Germany, Germany preferred but international if needed)
Annieselan (Germany, international)
FiBe (UK, UK/Europe preferred, international if needed)
Gealach (Sweden, international)
arugh48187 (India, international)
Franciek (Italy, international)
JennyC1230 (USA, USA preferred but international if needed)
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.
edith 6.11.07 also ich bekomms nicht auf die reihe. jetzt hab ich mir die deutsche version zu weihnachten gewünscht. und das buch reist weiter sobald ich die adresse habe...
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 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.
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
The book is traveling to Gealach, because FiBe doesn`t want to read it anymore. I envy the book, because it`s traveling to Sweden and I would like to go there, too. ;-)
I have PM:ed arugh48187 and will send the book as soon as possible.
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.
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Franciek said that she already got a copy of this one, and so I sent it off to JennyC1230 today. Happy reading!
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? :-)

Happy Travels Little Book!
Will be posting to brunton11 as soon as I get the address.
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.
Thanks for sharing!
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!
CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
I'll send the book out to Nagwan on Monday! Enjoy!
Book shipped to Canada 3 days ago.sorry for the delay in journaling.
PS: I PMed Shelly-Sparkles and boomda181 and they both said they got the book, so I sent it to pitluv4.
Turnpages has generously said we could use their book for the rest of the participants, so I will add that info here soon.
