On Wednesday I trudged to my local Barnes & Noble, joining dozens of others there to hear “chick-lit” author extraordinaire, Sophie Kinsella, talk, answer questions, and read from the book that started it all : Confessions of a Shopaholic. I’m sure you’ve all seen the commercials for the upcoming movie, out Valentine’s Day weekend, and as in Jen’s previous post, I have a confession to make myself: I’ve read all of the Shopaholic books as well as the stand alone books. (Guilty pleasure!) But after seeing this bubbly, witty, energetic author in person I wanted to sit down at my computer and invent a Becky Bloomwood of my own… Or maybe I will just read her books all over again. The movie’s release this coming weekend will surely usher in a whole new set of Becky fans and Sophie Kinsella followers. Make sure you have enough copies on hand!
Sophie also announced that she has a new stand-alone novel coming soon. Keep an eye out for Twenties Girl, scheduled to be published by Dial Press this August.
