Publisher's Summary

The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic has been recently adapted for the big screen as Confessions of a Shopaholic starring Isla Fisher.

Meet Rebecca Bloomwood.

She's a journalist. She spends her working life telling others how to manage their money.

She spends her leisure time ... shopping.

Retail therapy is the answer to all her problems. She knows she should stop, but she can¿t. She tries Cutting Back, she tries Making More Money. But neither seems to work. The stories she concocts become more and more fantastic as she tries to untangle her increasingly dire financial difficulties. Her only comfort is to buy herself something - just a little something...

Can Becky ever escape from this dream world, find true love, and regain the use of her Switch card?

The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic... the perfect pick me up for when it¿s all hanging in the (bank) balance.

Legit the title of the book

Not much else happens except the characters inability to see a shopping addiction, it’s painful. The end was lovely and saved the book somewhat. I was so keen to start a new series but unfortunately not. Will try her other books as the style of writing is easy and fun.

Story finished only half way through the book- don't download

I love this series of books and have read them all before so was excited to download the first book of the series for a long drive to London from Newcastle. I was very disappointed when the book cut off less than half way through. I was very new to audible at the time so though maybe you had to download the book in three parts? Since I have found out this is not the case and am left feeling disappointed. I would recommend finding a different version of the book to download as this one must be corrupt and left feeling very short changed.

Irritating

I persevered to the end as the performance was good, and curiosity as to how it would end got the better of me, however I was very close to giving up several times. I found the amount of lies that the character told irritating and uncomfortable. I would not recommend this book.
