Overview

Mini Shopaholic (Shopaholic Series #6) by Sophie Kinsella

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Sophie Kinsella's Wedding Night and a sneak peek into all of the Shopaholic novels.

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?

Just finished the latest of the Shopaholic series and found it to be funny and typical Becky Bloomwood. Well done Ms. Kinsella. Can't wait for the next one.

I have read all the Shopaholic books, and found them to be funny and witty, so I was really looking forward to the latest, Mini Shopaholic. Needless to say, I cannot even get through it, it is that bad! The characters have not evolved at all, and I found the daughter to be beyond annoying! The situations that Rebecca finds herself in are beyond ridiculous, and are more annoying than funny. I really cannot recommend this book to anyone, and am really upset I spent money on it myself!!!

Terrible book! I read all of the books and they were funny and made me LOL. This one is shallow, the character was quite destroyed.She seems dumb and ignorant- not a woman from the 21 th century.I even had a hard time to understand why her husband continues the relationship with such a sick person. There were some gaps among the parallels stories and to finish the part that she goes shopping with nanny Sue for me only reflects a completely sad and destroyed person.Disappointing

Let's be honest, few of Kinsella's books will be as good as the original Shopaholic. If you are a fan of her work, however, you will like this book. It is a very fast, entertaining read, though not particularly anything new. The down side is that you realize Becky's character has never come any further than the original book, despite all the problems she has gotten into in the past. Like some of the other reviews mentioned, the book does center around one event (the party). On the up side, it's the same quirky writing style we have come to love from Kinsella. Definitely a must-read for her fans, and the book leaves off hinting at a sequel, so also a must-read if you plan on continuing with the Shopaholic series.

Have all the books in the Shopaholic series, and this is the worst. Can hardly get through it. It's boring and plain stupid. I find myself wishing Luke would get ride of Becky, and I've never done that before. Her thinking used to be funny, but in this book it is plain silly. Hope her next book is better than this one. Will probably never read this one again, and I have read all the others several times and laugh each time. Would not recommend to anyone.

This took me a while to get through, but really a good read. Very similar to all the rest of the books in theme. Becky has crazy ideas they start to fall appart and then someone saves her. At least this time she did not get in trouble because of selfishness its doing something super sweet for her husband Luke. Throughout you see their child misbehaving and try several tracks to find out what more they should do. In all knowing this is the last book in the series at least for now it seemed very unfinished. Not my favorite, but love the characters.

I wasn't expecting much after reading other reviews of this book, but I had a lot of fun reading it. It had basically the same formula as the other books and there weren't any big surprises, but as in all the other books in the Shopaholic series, the details were great. Some parts were hilarious, some were embarrassing, some were touching. The story was fun and I thought it was worth reading. I'll probably read it again someday.

Minnie Brandon may only be two years old, but she is chip off the maternal block already. She, like her mom Rebecca, is a major shopper of luxurious items. Price is no problem to the shopaholic addicted toddler. However, the recession hammers the Brandon family. Luke seeks new business while Rebecca sets a BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) to use every item hanging in her closet at least three times before hitting the stores again. She knows that will take some time as her closets are filled. However, Minnie brings new meaning to the terrible twos as she refuses to stop spending. Meanwhile Becky plans to throw a surprise birthday bash for her husband, but finds doing it with little money to spend is beyond her skills and experience. Still she goes ahead as an intrepid explorer finding new territory. Obviously for the Shopaholic crowd (see Shopaholic and Baby), the latest entry is a lighthearted romp as the Brandon females put new meaning into the definition of the terrible twos. While Becky sets goals to reduce spending, Minnie assumes her mom is ill. Fans will enjoy the nurturing vs. naturing karma of Mini Shopaholic as Becky goes cold turkey as a born again savor while Minnie believes more shopping as a spendthrift will solve their family crisis.

The prieview was so good wanna read this book! Does anyone know if theres a series
Kim_Me More than 1 year ago
I was worried that I wouldn't like this book after reading all of the other reviews, but to be honest, I found it just as good as the others  in the series. It follows the same basic theme, and I didn't find that the character's personalities were any different in this book than the  others in the series. I still found myself laughing at parts. If you are a devoted fan of this series, don't skip this one.

Like the other one-star reviews, I just found Becky and Minnie (and Becky's mother, for that matter) to be annoying. I really can't feel any sympathy for her. No wonder Luke works all the time.
