Laure Happymanda, the contributor to the reading group20 Minutes Books, recommends Christmas Shopaholic, published on November 5, 2020, at Belfond. Sophie Kinsella's

Her favorite quote:

 - But you really had to order four? - I didn't know she would fit me. Leg length, extra or standard. Luke, I'm not responsible. Rather, criticizes the fashion industry which penalizes the innocent consumer with her poor assessment of sizes.

Why this book?

  • Because it's a wonderfully funny feelgood novel. The extravagant Becky and her misadventures to organize the perfect Christmas will delight you from the first lines. You will smile and laugh in a magical atmosphere. This novel sparkles like champagne. I did not see the time pass with this shopaholic, her buying madness would be almost contagious. His optimism wins you over. More serious subjects are approached with delicacy, in particular that of adoption. They remind us of the importance of family, even more so during this time.
  • Because email exchanges are hilarious and totally crazy situations will make you laugh out loud. Sophie Kinsella has charming handwriting that is easy to read and entertaining. I felt the Christmas atmosphere, this desire that we have to want to make everyone happy and joyful. Poor Becky! Everything is going wrong but to the delight of his reader. Christmas will be the perfect time to read this novel, but it will be savored all year round without moderation. I can imagine an adaptation to the cinema that I will hasten to see.
  • Because The Shopaholic is a series of books that feels good. And this is the opportunity to discover it or to pursue it. Readings that comfort you and ensure you have a happy time.
