Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
I like to imagine Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) is an avid reader of Bambino Goodies, that her fingers drum on the keyboard as she looks at the latest must have toddler products…
Mini Shopaholic is the latest release in the long running Shopaholic series written by Sophie Kinsella. Becky has returned two years after the birth of her daughter, Minnie, and is now facing hard times as the banks collapse. Worst of all she makes a promise not to buy any more clothes for herself until she has worn everything in her wardrobe at least three times. As usual Becky gets herself into one or two tight corners and invents a series of ever more elaborate cover stories to get herself out. Will she manage to pull off her big surprise in the end or will it end up a hopeless disaster?
Completely unable to stop myself from reading, I have read it over the weekend and can say it is a Shopaholic classic. From the very beginning the familiar shopping compulsions had me in stitches and Becky’s unique sense of drama doesn’t fail to suck you in. Exciting to the last page with one or two big surprises thrown in it is this season’s must read.
