Book Description

April 19 2011 Shopaholic

Becky Brandon thinks that having a daughter is a dream come true: a shopping friend for life! But two-year-old Minnie has a quite different approach to shopping. The toddler creates havoc everywhere she goes, from Harrods to her own christening. Her favorite word is “Mine!” and she’s even trying to get into eBay! On top of everything else, Becky and Luke are still living with her parents (the deal on house #4 has fallen through), when suddenly there’s a huge nationwide financial crisis.

With people having to cut back, Becky decides to throw a surprise party for Luke to cheer everyone up. But when costs start to spiral out of control, she must decide whether to accept help from an unexpected source—and therefore run the risk of hurting the person she loves.

Will Becky be able to pull off the celebration of the year? Will she and Luke ever find a home of their own? Will Minnie ever learn to behave? And . . . most important . . . will Becky’s secret wishes ever come true?

—The Washington Post

“Screamingly funny.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Shopaholic unable to shop?!? Oct. 6 2013
Format:Paperback
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Escape.... May 7 2012
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Light Read Feb. 29 2012
Format:Paperback
Awesome new story about Becky Brandon. A bit less intense than the previous ones, but I loved it. Normally I read serious classical books, this one is a nice change to have once in a while.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best of the series Jan. 4 2011
By MH
Format:Hardcover
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kinsella is hilarious once again Nov. 16 2010
By Rosie
Format:Hardcover
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Major disappointment June 30 2011
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.
