Seventeen years after it was released, I finally read Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I was laughing all the way through it, even when I was cringing at Becky’s excessive spending. I kept shouting at her in my head, “Don’t buy those clothes! Go pay your bills!” But nevertheless I enjoyed this book.
I was motivated to finally read it because I met Sophie Kinsella at her Toronto book signing a couple of weeks ago. She is a very kind woman. She was doing a signing to promote her latest book My Not So Perfect Life. Now I can’t wait to read that one. Here’s a photo of her signing my book.
