I loved reading this book. Alexis Hall's sense of humor is evident on every page. She knows she made a mistake with finances (or actually many mistakes), but instead of writing a depressing story about how she gave up shopping for a year, she jokes and stays positive throughout the book. I laughed out loud MANY, MANY times when reading it. If you're looking for a book that will tell you how to stop shopping, then this is not it. Alexis shares her story with you, but doesn't actually give any advice on how you can do what she did. But if you're looking for a fun and easy read, then this is for you. And if you're a shopaholic, maybe you can even find it inspiring!

I loved this book. It made me laugh but it also seriously made me start committing myself to not overspending. I could identify with a lot of the author's debt versus love of shopping conflicts. An honest and worthwhile humorous read that I didn't want to end.

This book was entertaining, informative and provoking all at the same time. The author's journey through 12 months of constrained/abstained spending is very believable and helpful to anyone who may also have a similar problem.

Not a novel in the usual sense. Alexis, whose story this is, tells how she had to change her life to match her income and changing financial atmosphere. Lots of good ideas and it's woven into a readable story. A bit of encouragement for those in the same financial boat.

Reading someone's diary is still an act of 'curiosity killed the cat' but it does attract the curious. Reading on how one person disciplined, and challenged herself to get her life together amidst the constant temptations of shopping can be inspiring.

I really enjoyed this book. It's written in diary form, so it's easy to digest in one setting. The author is likeable and talented and you'll find yourself drawn in to her story. A nice and realistic look at oniomania.

This book has kept me laughing and I haven't wanted to put it down. It is written in British lingo or something like that and I am from America so I do have to keep looking up a few things. But I can't put it down!
