Get your comfy shoes on for another adventure with shopaholic extraordinaire, Becky Bloomwood.
All of us have been Becky Bloomwood at one time or another in our lives. We might have hidden our credit card bills so we didn’t have to face up to them or stocked up on expensive beauty products because we couldn’t resist a three-for-two offer.
So all of us Becky Bloomwoods will be thrilled to find out the heroine is coming back, as author Sophie Kinsella has written a new novel featuring everyone’s favourite shopaholic.
Bloomwood began life in The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic, which focused on her adventures as a financial journalist who ironically couldn’t keep track of her own finances because of her love for shopping.
The first book was also turned into the 2009 film Confessions of a Shopaholic with Isla Fisher as Becky and Hugh Dancy as her love interest Luke.
Kinsella has gone on to write a total of 16 Shopaholic books, following Becky as she travels, gets married (becoming Becky Brandon) and has a daughter.
And this winter Becky will be back in Christmas Shopaholic, as announced by Kinsella.
On her website, Kinsella says: “I’m thrilled to be returning to the world of Becky Bloomwood and can’t wait to share the next instalment of her story with you. Becky is so close to my heart and I can’t believe it’s been twenty years since she first popped into my mind, credit card and shopping bags in hand!”
There’s no information yet on what the book - out on 17 October - will be about but if we know Becky at all, there are bound to be mishaps, laughter and a lot of shopping.
You know this is one book that your inner Becky would consider a good investment.
