Currently Reading: Confessions of a Shopaholic


To say I'm a little late on this book is an understatement. But I never saw the movie and I have my own personal shopaholic problem. So I figured I should read this. 

And I'm glad I did. 

One thing is for certain- I am not nearly as bad off as this chick. My life could be worse. But I can also relate to the descriptions of how excited she gets when she buys new stuff. And that's what scares me.

I had a hard time really getting into this one, but now I'm that a little more than halfway through, I'm really enjoying it. It doesn't hurt that the main character is a journalist. So I can relate to her in more ways than one. 

It's a pretty easy summer read that I think most young women can relate to. Struggling to find a job you love and enjoy while trying to make money and not spend it all shopping. That will be me… Soon enough. (Eek!)

Now I guess I'll have to watch the movie. Which came out in 2009… I'm a little late.


Have you read this book/seen the movie? Did you think you could relate to Becky's struggles?
