MiniShopaholic - Shopaholic, Bk 6 Author:Sophie Kinsella Nothing comes between Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) and her bargains. Neither act of God nor budget crunch can shatter her dreams of wall-to-wall Prada. Every milestone in her well-shopped life (travel, long-lost sister, marriage, pregnancy) inspires new vistas to explore in the name of retail therapy. But now she faces her greatest littl... more »e challenge yet: Becky’s two-year-old daughter, Minnie.
While motherhood has been everything Becky dreamed it would be -- Baby Dior, Little Marc Jacobs, and Dolce & Gabbana for toddlers -- adorable Minnie is wreaking havoc everywhere she goes, from Harrods to her own christening. Her favorite word is “MINE!” and her penchant for Balenciaga bags, Chanel sunglasses, and online purchases has no rival under age five.
Becky is at her wits end. On top of this, she and her husband Luke are still living with her parents. Thankfully it appears house buying attempt number four is a go! Until a huge financial crisis causes panic everywhere, and nobody wants to shop -- not Becky’s personal shopping clientele, not her friends, nobody. And with Luke in the doldrums, it’s time for Becky to step in -- with a party: A surprise birthday party for Luke (on a budget) is the perfect antidote to everyone’s woes. At first.
Will Becky manage to keep the party of the year a surprise? Can she hire jugglers, fire-eaters, and acrobats at a discount? Will enlisting the help of Luke’s unflappable assistant to convince him to have another baby realize her dream of matching pom-poms? Will Minnie find a new outlet for her energetic and spirited nature (perhaps one with sixty percent markdowns)? She is, after all, a chip off the old shopping block. And everyone knows a committed shopper always finds a way.« less
Following the series with the introduction of Minnie Brandon, the toddler that just won't stop. Full of laugh out loud moments, grab a blanket and snuggle up to enjoy the latest book in the shopaholic series.
From the first word to the last I was hooked. I cannot wait to see what new adventures Becky tackles in the coming books and hope that this series has no end! I could grow old with Becky!! **Warning this book increases the urge to shop.**
Love it! Sophie Kinsella really knows how to write a comedic book. Great flow and really holds your interest. I love her Rebecca Bloomwood/Brandon character and she leaves us knowing there will be more to come. The only sad thing about this book is that it ended!
A very fun, breezy continuation of Becky Bloomwood, her husband Luke Brandon, their daughter, Minnie plus all of the other characters followers of Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic know and love (Suze, Tarquin, Tom, Jess, her parents, Elinor Brandon, etc.). If you already know the books, you won't be disappointed. It's a fast, easy read - very enjoyable. Loved it.
Another great installment of the Shopaholic series. It is all crazy and unbelievable stuff but very entertaining. I love the language aspect of it too. And the storyline ends on the note that there will be another book coming soon.
