Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella

Confessions of a Shopaholic is a wonderfully charming tale about a 20 something writer for a finance magazine. Becky Bloomwood lives in London with her roommate, Suze. Becky is in tremendous debt because of her spending habits. She can't resist buy a new top or pair of shoes and tries to justify why she needs all new clothes.

To take control over her spending Becky buys a self-help book and after a disastrous curry dinner she comes clean about all her spending to her roommate who suggests that instead of trying to spend less, Becky should try to make more money.

One hilarious disaster follows another, as Becky tries to eliminate her debt while avoiding her bank manager.
