Not my favourite of the series. While it is nice to see a new novel by Kinsella, this contribution doesn't match up to previous Shopaholic books. I don't have kids, so perhaps some of the "mom of a toddler" humour is lost on me, but I didn't find most of Minnie's "escapades" funny or cute. I just saw a bratty and indulged kid. Becky used to be flighty and fun (and humorously irresponsible), but these attributes lose some of their charm when no longer seen as the traits of a young single (or married) woman, but of a mother. Of course, it is just a book, so isn't meant to be taken too seriously. If this were the first of my Shopoholic reads, though, I don't think that I would continue on to others in the series.

Format: Hardcover
As a huge Sophie Kinsella fan, I've devoured every single one of her novels with delight. Her style is extremely fun and fresh, and Becky is a charming and hilarious protagonist. However, I was not impressed by Mini Shopaholic. As I was reading, I could almost hear Kinsella's writing process: "What hilariously awkward situation could happen next?" Becky's antics were fun the first couple times, but this time around, everything just seemed a bit contrived, like Kinsella was trying way too hard to be funny.

And I didn't find Minnie's character even remotely endearing. It probably would've been boring if she had been sweet and obedient, but making her come off as a spoiled brat doesn't exactly make you care about her.

Also, the main plot about the birthday party just seemed extremely boring and unoriginal to me.

That said, I did enjoy some parts of the book, and I'm looking forward to the next Shopaholic sequel.

Sophie Kinsella may have outdone herself with this novel. It is very funny and there is a surprise ending. Luke is afraid that Little Minnie may have inherited her mom's shopholic gene. And just like mom, she manages to order 14 coats off of the internet at a click of a button. If you enjoyed her other novels, then you will love this one.

I have always had a bit of a conundrum when reading the Shopaholic novels about Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood): I can't stop cringing at the loopy things Becky does, yet I cannot stop laughing as well!

In this 6th Shopaholic Volume, the shopaholic fan is introduced to a new side of Becky: motherhood! Becky is now the mother of a darling young daughter (aptly) named Minnie. Of course, along with motherhood comes a whole slew of new shopping temptations, including childrens' clothing and toys!And, it never hurts to be a well-dressed, "yummy mummy" with the latest fashions! Becky's antics are all over the place as she begins to plan a party for her husband Luke's birthday, and the hilarity begins!

With all these new ways to spend, how will Becky cope with the need to "cut back"? Will Becky be able to plan a lovely birthday party for Luke all on her own? And the big question: is her daughter Minnie more like her father (wise with money) or like her mother (spend-happy)? Kinsella describes Bloomwoods life in a hilarious, satisfying way that is sure to please ( if not make you laugh and cringe at the same time!)

I would definitely recommend this novel for fans of the previous shopaholic books!

Format: Paperback
I read this book recently as a switch from educational and work related reads. I have enjoyed the wild adventures that Rebecca and Minnie and crew have had. If the author had another book out in the series after this, I would read it...

That being said: I did find myself slightly frustrated in the story line across the series because it appears that Rebecca really hasn't developed as a character/person. She's continually making the same mistakes. The movie version of the first Shopaholic book felt like it had more resolution. Like she'd actually had learned something, where as in this edition she's teaching her bad habits to her little one.

I too am a fan of Sophie Kinsella. Twenties Girl, Undomestic Goddess, Remember Me, Can you keep a secret and the first two Shopaholic books were great! But now we're on, what,Shopaholic book 7 and the main character has learned NOTHING and has not grown at all. Luke is almost non-existent. You would think the book would be about the daughter, but it's mostly about this ridiculous party that she plans. Seriously? There were a few good parts, but for the most part I was really wishing that i would have got it from the library and not wasted my cash on it.

What a crazy dilemma. It was nice to kind of step away from the fashion world while Becky faced a whole list of different problems. A troublesome two year old, her mother-in-law, her own parents, a surprise party...

Oh, and from the looks of it another shopaholic is on the way.
