Christmas Shopaholic

by Sophie Kinsella

I am a sucker for any chick lit that takes place over the Christmas Holiday.  I listened to Christmas Shopaholic on audio during my morning workouts over the 2020 holiday period.  I needed a little pick me up going into the holiday knowing that the 2020 Christmas season was going to be like no other. 

Christmas Shopaholic is one of twelve books in the Shopaholic series by bestselling author Sophie Kinsella and it is pure chick lit.  Honestly, as I was listening to it, I realized that I am too far removed from the life of a mother in her 30’s with a small child to enjoy a book like this.  However, if you are much closer to that age than I, then Christmas Shopaholic might be a good, quick respite for you. 

I will share that the ending was nice and not just because it all ends well on Christmas Day, but there was a tiny twist with words that really brought through the true spirit of Christmas.  In the end, I was glad I had listened to this book because it really did lift my spirits.  And yes, I will definitely watch the movie if it ever makes it to the big screen.
