Reviews Shopaholic Ties the Knot (Shopaholic, #3)

  • Lola
    Only Becky Bloomwood could get herself in this much trouble. But the best part is always seeing her struggle to get out of it! Never change, Becky.
  • Zoë
    I love Sophie Kinsella's writing style so much! Her books are like candy and I can't get enough! I love how Rebecca isn't a totally likable character; she has her flaws but she always learns from her mistakes in the end and becomes stronger. I was obsessed with the first half of the book as I'm totally invested in Luke and Becky's relationship, but the wedding drama kind of dragged on a bit too long for me. Still really liked this book, though, a...

    I love Kinsella's books, and I loove Becky, but this one was my least favorite. The way she had to drag on the wedding decision totally wore out my patience. What sucked was that THAT was basically the main part of the story. At some point, I was so irritated at her that I wasn't really concentrating on what I was reading because I wanted to hurry up and get to the conclusion. And it's too silly how Luke was so unaware of the chaotic wedding plan...

    I know a 2-star rating is typically an automatic: "she didn't like it", but I am using the formal goodreads definition for the rating here. It was OK. To be honest, I am playing catch-up on this series now that my library has finally added the audiobooks, and reading about Becky's epic avoidance-laden screw ups back-to-back was not the brightest idea. The cute is quickly turning to annoying, so I'll wait a few weeks before continuing to the next ...
  • Erin
    If it were possible I would give Shopaholic Ties the Knot and extra star, because this is my favorite book in the series. I'm not sure why, maybe it's all the descriptions of wedding cake. I don't know. I just enjoy this book the most. I especially enjoyed it this time because it temporarily stopped my reading slump. In Shopaholic Ties the Knot, Becky deals with a problem we have all had to deal with, two weddings on the same day in different cou...

    Well, I'm definitely glad Becky is off on her round the world honeymoon. I was so stressed by the time this book was over, I thought it would never end! Not as funny as the first two, there was just too much tension. I can't say I enjoyed this one a whole lot.
  • Vicki
    This third book in the series was just as funny and in some ways more hilarious than the first book. This book has Becky and Luke moving forward in their relationship. The problems begin when Becky can't say no, to totally different plans for the same event. The cast of characters is fun and full bodied. They have their own personalities which fill this book with a lot of conflict and humor. Well written and fun, I was glad I read this book.
  • Shannon (Giraffe Days)
    I'm continuously surprised at how much I enjoy these books. For one, they're chick-lit, which I don't read much of and generally find insipid and insulting. They're about a woman who is obsessed with shopping, something we really don't have in common. Whenever she buys something (which is often, and usually something she really doesn't need), I cringe. Her debts make me anxious. Her silly lies and cover-ups give me acid burn. The situations she g...
  • Ann
    One of the best chick-lit series I've read! Becky Bloomwood is a delight and adorable! She has her issues, of course, but somehow you can't help loving her! Part of what makes these books so funny and cute is the ability Becky has to justify every purchase she makes. And her shopaholic problems aside, she's a sweet, kind and big-hearted person.My sister and I were actually able to go to an author talk with Sophie Kinsella, and she's just as adora...
  • Hannah
    Even after reading all this book and seeing Becky progress more than only just shopping (even though I hope just like Luke she never looses the Bloomwood) I'm sure I wouldn't want a joint bank account with this woman, she'd also drive me a little crazy but in a good way in small dozes.The shopaholic's life is on the up and at her friends wedding Luke proposes and Becky is now engaged. Tasked with planning a wedding (or shall we say two). The whol...

    Really enjoyed this one. Much better than #1 and #2 in my opinion.
  • Ivi
    not really into it
  • Ashley (mac\u0026chip)
    I really wanted to like this book - I was planning my own wedding at the time and thought this would be an easy, relatable read - nope. This book was by far my least favorite in the series. I thought Becky came off too strong and annoying in the Manhattan book, but apparently she had a lot more "character" in her.In this book, Becky and Luke are planning their wedding. Becky accepts Luke's icy mother's offer to throw them a top-notch New York wed...
  • Megs ♥
    These books are seriously addicting. I know the main complaint people have about these books is how annoying Bex can be, but I don't mind her. She has her moments where I would like to smack some sense into her, but overall I like her funny, awkward moments. Bex is basically running around like a chicken with her head cut off throughout this whole book. She has promised both her mother and her mother-in-law that they could plan her wedding, and n...

    I've decided that, since I'm pretty preoccupied with wedding stuff as it is, what could be more fun that going through the adventure with an old friend? Hence, some of my joys and stresses will be meshed with Becky's--and I'm grateful for the companionship! :-)
  • Attack Salmon
    My least favourable Shopoholic book so far. Becky is stuck having 2 weddings and she have to decide which one she want the most and still manage to make everyone happy. It is an ok read but the story wasn't as funny as the previous ones and throughout the whole book Becky just keep avoiding confrontation and whining. Very little plot material for this one.I still can't get the chemistry between Luke and Brandon. They are vastly different. Yeah u ...

    Becky Bloomwood's life has been running fairly smoothly recently, she is a personal shopper at Barney's, she and boyfriend Luke are living together and they've even opened a joint bank account. At best friend Suze's wedding Luke proposes and suddenly Becky's life has been flung upside down. Her mum wants her to get married in Oxshott whereas Luke's mother Elinor wants her to get married in New York - at the Plaza no less! As both women begin to p...
  • Noella
    3.5 starsBecky Bloomwood is about to get married! Only there is one BIG dilemma. Where is she going to have her wedding? In her hometown Oxshott with family and friends, planned by her loving mother or in Manhattan at the extravagant Plaza Hotel organised by Luke's mother Elinor? Becky's indecisiveness and lies return in this installment of the Shopaholic series. I was quite frustrated by her actions throughout the book as she ran away from her p...

  • Steffi
    Rebecca Bloomwood is probably the only character I forgive being an absolute pain in the ...She makes me furious and eye-rolling, I want to shout at her and still I find myself enjoying the books.I loved all the wedding talk. Must the Disney princess inside me still waiting for her big day.
  • Christine (KizzieReads)
    As much I loved the writing, Becky just drove me nuts! She really needed to grow up and stop acting like an entitled baby. She thinks about having a baby after Suze, but only because she wants to shop for it. Not be a mother. She wants the Plaza wedding, but also her wedding at her parents' but can't say no to either one. I did like the little twist at the end, but it was a little to late for me to really enjoy it as the whole book was me wanting...

    if you liked Confessions of a Shopaholic then you'll enjoy the rest of the series. I was quite frustrated by Becky Bloomwood's actions throughout the book as she ran away from her problems and escaped by lying.I just really wished she learnt a lesson from her past experiences.This third book in the series had Kinsella's usual humor littered throughout.. The ending was a happy one, it didn't disappoint me, but the drama about the two weddings drag...
  • Cara and Ashley
    Oh no! Oh no! What happened to Sophie Kinsella when she wrote this book??!!!Needless to say I wasn’t really pleased with the third novel. The problem book series have, especially when the first two novels were really good, is that the reader is hungry for more good story telling. But unfortunately, with Shopaholic Ties the Knot, it seems like the author has lost her fire….OH NO!!!Okay, what didn’t I like about it? Well, for starters, the pl...
  • Erin
    I'm not a big chick lit fan, but find Sophie Kinsella's work to be a real guilty pleasure-- slight but fun. However, Shopaholic Ties the Knot is definitely not her best. In the other Shopaholic books, protagonist Becky Bloomwood, is ditzy and self-indulgent, but basically a fun and sweet girl that you can sort of identify with. In this book, that mostly goes out the window. Here, Becky gets engaged and is torn between having the simple English we...
  • Claire - The Coffeeholic Bookworm
    Becky is getting married and ready to get settled! But where? While she’s enjoying life as a Personal Shopper at Barney’s, which I swear is every shopaholic’s dream, her family from England wanted her to stay in the countryside with her husband. But she couldn’t stay away from the glitz and glamour of Manhattan, could she? If you’re Becky Bloomwood, you would be at your wits end, and might just end up in a mental.While I enjoyed the fir...
  • Nusrat Mahmood
    Becky seems less lying in this book. she is just not telling full truth. umm...that's fun. gosh! I am so in love with this series.
  • Miriam
    Skipped book two, because it sadly wasn't available at the library, but it hardly mattered - it didn't feel like there was much information I was missing.A lovely novel in any case - Becky, the main character, is as talented as ever at getting herself into a world of trouble - and then subsequently getting out of it by sheer luck, boldness and a clever trick. Plus points for the romance between Becky and Luke, her husband to be - it's lovely that...
  • Heaven
    3.5 This series is slowly turning into my guilty pleasure that I enjoy greatly, however, this is my least favorite so far in the series. Becky gave me a headache in this book. I'm not sure how she got herself into the situation of having 2 weddings and continued to not fix it. I know this is supposed to be a fun and girly read, which it is but at some points I just wanted to pull my hair out.
  • Tuuli
    My least favourite so far; it dragged on and on. The marriage of the main couple in a chick-lit should, in my opinion, be fun and magical and exciting. In this book it was almost depressing.
