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.
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!
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.

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. Read morePublished on Oct. 6 2013 by Book Cupid
