The blog for books and movies

Becky Brandon thought motherhood would be a breeze and that having a daughter was a dream come true: a shopping friend for life! But it’s trickier than she thought. Two-year-old Minnie has a quite different approach to shopping.

Minnie 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 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?

    In my opinion, Mini Shopaholic is one of the best in the series. It follows the tale of a couple (Luke and Rebecca) and their daughter Minnie. Although Rebecca never likes to admit it, Minnie is a problem child. This causes the pair some trouble, but it all gets worse. Most of the banks in London go bankrupt, causing a nation wide debt. Luke says that Rebecca has to stop her shopping habits, but she still wants to throw a surprise party for him. Will she keep it a surprise and create the budget savvy event of the year?


  2. I recommend you the book Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella. This is the latest book in the Confession of a Shopaholic series, it talks about Rebecca Bloomwood becoming a mother, taking care of her two-year-old daughter, Minnie. When the financial crisis hits the family, Rebecca vows to stop shopping but she still wants to throw Luke a surprise birthday party. Personally, I think there are some parts in the book which is really funny but it isn’t as good a the other Shopaholic series. I enjoyed the series in the beginning, but this book is quite repetitive and there isn’t a main plot.
