I am happy to report that I saw the author speak, and she is delightful, nice, funny, and deserving of your book purchase! With people having to cut back, Becky decides to throw a surprise party for Luke to cheer everyone up.

But then an unexpected disaster threatens her career prospects, her relationship with Luke, and her available credit line. If there is a male equivalent to women’s mindless and completely uncool pursuit of name-brand (read: expensive) fashion, it would be a dude with a mullet peeling out in a Trans Am in the parking lot of a strip club blaring a Ted Nugent anthem. The book was far less cutesy than the movie as it made Rebecca (the main character) a dislikable character at first. I have a great sense of humor, and usually find many things funny that I probably shouldn't, but this wasn't funny to me. Things are looking cheerier than ever, until Becky’s parents announce they’re moving to ultra-trendy Shoreditch—unable to resist the draw of craft beer and smashed avocados—and ask Becky if she’ll host this year.I went into this book expecting it to be just like the movie (which, by the way I love), but it might as well have been a completely different story.

Red carpet premieres, velvet ropes, paparazzi clamoring for attention—suddenly Becky has everything she’s ever wanted. Although, I hope Sophie Kinsella will include more and more moments with Luke and Becky in this novel hahaha. The irony is that she works as a financial journalist for a successful saving magazine, who should know how to handle expenses so that she can save money and not get into debt.Life is good, especially now that Becky takes time every day for mindfulness—even if that only means listening to a meditation tape while hunting down online bargains. Well this book is a masterclass in light-comedy tongue-firmly-in-cheek modern woman storytelling, I kid you not!

They mean they applied for jobs at The Times and The Express and Marie-Claire and Vogue and GQ, and all they got back was “Piss off. She is also the author of the children's series Mummy Fairy and Me / Fairy Mom and Me, and several bestselling novels under the name of Madeleine Wickham. And they’ve stayed on writing about metal, or cheese, or savings, ever since – because that’s all they know.Ah yes, there’s also romance, intrigue, adventures in Indian cooking, unsuccessful part time jobs, a stalker(?

In fact, it took so long to drive this to an interesting point, I nearly lost interest (which, considering how short this book is, says a lot).

I can only wonder how many fine novels have been suppressed so that this fatuous story can make it on to the bookshelves. There will always be a sexy, successful, intelligent, no-bullshit kind of guy who will find your stupidity and poor impulse control endearing. But Becky still adores the traditions of Christmas: Her parents hosting, carols playing on repeat, her mother pretending she made the Christmas pudding, and the neighbors coming ’round for sherry in their terrible holiday sweaters.
