Book Review: Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella

I've been a Shopaholic series fan since it first came out and I have to say this was my least favorite. It follows the typical Shopaholic plot which normally I love but this time I felt like it was hard to keep my attention. It feels like the same book over and over again with no growth in Becky's character. That being said, this is definitely an easy beach read. Here's a quick synopsis from Amazon-

The follow-up to Kinsella’s Shopaholic & Baby (2007) finds Becky and Luke Brandon’s daughter, Minnie, hitting the terrible twos. More than a handful for Becky, Minnie is already picking up on some of her mother’s bad habits, particularly when it comes to shopping. With frequent cries of “Miiiiine!” Minnie is the embodiment of the voice in Becky’s head that won’t let her say no to bargain buys and designer clothes. Becky’s far more financially conscious husband, Luke, wants Becky to cut back on her shopping, forcing the fashionista to become a recessionista and actually wear the many clothes in her closet more than once. Not to be deterred, Becky channels her energy into planning a huge surprise birthday bash for Luke, which quickly gets out of hand. She is also determined to convince him that, despite their difficulties with Minnie, they should have another child. It’s been three years since readers last enjoyed the company of Becky Brandon née Bloomwood, and this lively, good-spirited romp is bound to please fans of the series.

I haven't read any books in the series. Didn't know there was more than one book of the concept, actually. I liked the movie, though.

I agree with you! This was my least favorite. I honestly wanted to strangle Minnie! But it was a fun summer read.
