YA book reviews, reading and recommending since 2009

I have been meaning to post this last week but didn’t get the chance to till today. One of my favorite authors for Adult books would be Sophie Kinsella so when I heard about Mini Shopaholic, I was undoubtedly excited to read it! 🙂 And now, the cover and synopsis has been released! What an adorable cover!

“Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) thought motherhood would be a breeze – but it’s trickier than she thought. Two-year-old Minnie is a little tearaway who has created havoc everywhere from Harrods to Harvey Nicks to her own christening. She hires taxis at random, her favourite word is ‘Mine’, and she already has a penchant for Balenciaga bags. Becky is at her wits’ end.

On top of this, she and Luke are still living with her Mum and Dad, there’s a big financial crisis so everyone’s having to Cut Back – including all her personal shopping clients – and her husband Luke is feeling low after the death of his beloved stepmother. To cheer Luke up, Becky decides to throw him a surprise birthday party – on a budget – and that’s when things become really complicated. As Becky tries to keep the arrangements secret, misunderstandings and excuses sprout everywhere, and soon she’s told so many fibs she can’t keep track of them. Will Becky pull off the surprise? Will Minnie give everything away? Will Minnie’s godparents ever stop arguing? Who will end up on the naughty step and who will get a gold star? And what will happen when Becky discovers Luke is keeping a big secret too?”

I will be doing more cover posts next week so be sure to look out for them. A lot of covers sent me squeeing because they were GORGEOUS!

  1. 😀 Sounds fun

  2. Awww….mini shopaholic! She must be cute *_*

    I haven’t read this serie but I really like the books I’ve read from Sophie Kinsella 🙂

    • Are you crazy?!?!
      If you like Sophie Kinsella and you’ve read her other books, you are INSANE to not have read the Shopaholic series! It’s BETTER than her other books! Except for Twenties Girl, that one was up there with the series, but anyways… If Kinsella doesn’t write more of the Shopaholic series, or even include Becky Bloomwood in another book (or hopefully another series) I will be forever crushed and betrayed by this AMAZING writer of words.

  3. I totally agree the Shopoholic series are by far the best Sophia books there are.. and I am looking forward to the new book mini-shopoholic which is released Sept 21st (here in Canada anyway)!
    Another good read was Undomestic Godess, .. I have Twenties Girl on my shelf, but haven’t read it yet.. (Glad to hear that it is good)
    I have been reading some of Nicholas Sparks books as of late!

  4. i can’t wait to read Mini Shopaholic. i have the whole series. love becky and luke and sophie. yay!

  5. i found it at kinokuniya last night..thought to buy it but finally i was thinking about my novel..still not finished yet..but i read the synopsis..sound good story!!

  6. oh my GOD. i saw a copy in the bookstore!! i want that. i have to agree about Twenties Girl being special, but ‘shopaholic’… i remember emotions when becky thought luke is having an affair. i so love the series!
