The Confessions of a Shopaholic

confessions of a shopaholic

I finished reading Confessions of a Shopaholic today. I am supposed to be a slow reader but this book was something I can finish in just two sittings. :P This morning I calculated I would take at least a day or two more to finish the whole book. So I ordered the next books in the series from Flipkart. I totally did not want to wait for the next book in the series, and I thought I would receive the next book by the time I finish the current book, which would be two days later. And guess what? I finished the book this afternoon itself. :| This meant I had to wait for two days for the next book to arrive. I had to cancel my order at Flipkart. Eeeksss! Called Flipkart. The guy asked me the reason for canceling the order. I almost giggled awkwardly and said,” You know this book is of a series and I finished reading it. I don’t think I’d have the patience to wait for two days for the next books in the series to arrive.” I could almost feel him grinning from the other side of the phone. :P Without any fuss they cancelled my order. (God! I love them. How could they be so calm, patient and sweet at the same time?)

Ta Da!

I went to office this evening to celebrate a colleague’s birthday. From there I tip toed to a nearby book shop with Mr Husband; picked up the entire series. Even asked the book seller for a discount, since “Flipkart” always gives discounts so he should give some too. :P Came back home. Started reading the Shopaholic Abroad. I am a Happy Bunny. :)

“Early” TGIF everyone. :)

Oh! did I tell you I loved the book? :D Read the summary of the book HERE

    • Ramya says:

      Awww Rati… U remind me of myself.. I remember the days when I did something very similar :) I have all the books including Mini Shopaholic. I agree its quite addictive. I am a pretty fast reader myself n I sat down to read the first Shopaholic book n was done after 3 hrs! :)
      After this series, u HAVE to read The Undomestic Goddess and Remember Me by the same author. Love them myself!!

      • Rati says:

        Ramya, actually I am a slow reader. I just read only a few books super fast. shopaholic is going to be one of them. :P

        I saw the undomestic goddess at the store yesterday but resisted myself from picking it up yet. I am def going to read those. thanks. :)

    • Rati says:

      damn devie. I always miss out on the most important details. :P :P

      i guess i’d start doing movie. I am a movie buff. Music is very selective but let me see. :))

  7. Fab says:

    I know exactly what you mean Rati!!!! It’s happening to me now after reading book 1 Hunger Games. Can’t wait to get the next one! BTW, I’ve read every single book in the shopaholic series – each one is fun in its own way :-)))

  8. sweta says:

  9. Ashu says:

    hey, the confessions of a shopaholic?? There is also a movie with the same name… Is it based on this novel??
    the girl with the green scarf!!! something like that??

    • krishti says:

      actually the movie was made by merging the first two books and changing the story A LOT as a result…there was a second movie too…didnt see that…u can say they are loosely based on the books…but the books are more fun :)

  10. Priya says:
