I've been slowly reading The Love Songs of W E B Du Bois for awhile now and I'm "enjoying" it but GOD!

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 have a great sense of humor, and usually find many things funny that I probably shouldn't, but this wasn't funny to me. The book is written in a brilliant format, diary style but without the date and time headings that you would expect.Sophie wrote her first novel under her real name, Madeleine Wickham, at the tender age of 24, whilst she was working as a financial journalist. I found the comedic situations she found herself in to be Bridget Jones-esque and absolutely hilarious.

A little unsolved mystery at the end may cause the paparazzi to swarm Becky’s home and leave readers wanting more. I stare out of the office window at a bus driving down Oxford Street, willing myself to open the white envelope sitting on my cluttered desk. Sophie Kinsella has a gift for comedy and her books are my go-to when I need something light to read to cheer me up. Every time she tries to stop spending, she winds up needing a little pick me up as she gets down in the dumps—a feeling many can relate to. I read the first four books of the series when I was in my early teens so couldn’t relate to Becky AT ALL, but was addicted all the same!Becky’s sister demands a vegan turkey, her husband insists that he just wants aftershave (again), and little Minnie needs a very specific picnic hamper: Surely Becky can manage all this, as well as the surprise appearance of an old boyfriend–turned–rock star and his pushy new girlfriend, whose motives are far from clear. That is, until she finds a financial story that really sparks her journalistic interest, and begins to spar with handsome and successful financial PR millionaire Luke Brandon. I was chugging right along thinking I'd finish it this week when I hit a part that I know is gonna wreck me. From introducing herself to the bank manager that she has spent months avoiding by accident, to getting caught looking at her dates cheque book, it all seems totally outlandish and extreme but is hilarious none the less.

This is my third Kinsella book, and so far the women are always complete idiotic dip-shits that only barely manage to bumble through their careers while managing to make an ass of themselves at every turn.I think it's hilarious that these books dominate the "chick-lit" scene when they are, in fact, the most sexist books I've managed to come across. But as the countdown to Christmas begins and her bighearted plans take an unexpected turn toward disaster, Becky wonders if chaos will ensue, or if she’ll manage to bring comfort and joy to Christmas after all. The stories she concocts become more and more fantastic as she tries to untangle her increasingly dire financial difficulties. Although, I hope Sophie Kinsella will include more and more moments with Luke and Becky in this novel hahaha. Told with a wit and humour that manages to breakthrough the relentlessness of Rebecca's precarious position.
