I love to read. My fiction of choice is usually a gritty crime thriller that keeps me guessing until the last few pages. But back in 2000 I discovered the first book in the shopaholics series, The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella, and I immediately fell in love with the heroine, Becky Bloomwood.
Becky loves to shop. Her best friend is her credit card and she has a closet over flowing with the latest fashion. The only issue is that she can't really afford it, so over the course of the shopaholics series she gets herself into all sorts of scrapes in her shopping adventures. Sound familiar? It did to me so I immediately got hooked.
