Hi All! Wonderful Writers is a weekly segment that comes out every Wednesday! Every week I spotlight and discuss one of my favorite authors, books by them, and talk about their writing styles and such. I hope you’ll enjoy. Feel free to participate as well by writing your own post and as always you are welcome to use the meme/pic if you’d like (just remember to credit me).

What I’ve Read (So Far):
The Shopaholic series (Books 1-6)
- Can You Keep a Secret?
- The Undomestic Goddess
- Remember Me?
- I’ve Got Your Number
- Wedding Night
- The Gatecrasher
Why She’s a Wonderful Writer: I think the main reason I enjoy Kinsella’s writing and stories so much is that they are so entertaining! Her characters are so much fun and relatable in many ways. Sure some of their situations maybe blown out of proportion, but that what makes the plot so enticing to her readers. Kinsella’s books are nice, light reads, and they always are sure to make me laugh and cheer me up when I’m having a bad day. I enjoy the Shopaholic series most of all since I love reading about Becky Bloomwood’s crazy shopping escapades.
