Sophie Kinsella, Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine which allows us to highlight up coming releases we are eagerly awaiting.


So, a couple of weeks ago I was all excited. I’d been waiting for this cover to be released so I could make it my WoW since I began participating, as its by FAR my most anticipated book of 2010. But just a couple of days after the cover appeared on amazon, it disappeared again. Being a cautious little soul I thought I’d better wait and see if there was a reason why. But the UK, New Zealand and Australia cover has now been revealed on Sophie Kinsella’s very own website, and so here it is!

Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella

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? (taken from Chick Lit Reviews)

Released 2nd September 2010

So who isn’t excited about this? I Can. Not. Wait! I love love love Becky Bloomwood and can’t wait to meet her mini shopaholic! There’s been much debate about the cover, which a lot of people aren’t keen on, especially as it doesn’t really match the rest in the series. Personally I kind of like it, it’s cute! The only thing I’m not so keen on is the colour and style of the font. At the end of the day though, this is one cover where I couldn’t care less what it’s like as I’ll be buying the book as soon as humanly possible anyway.

The US cover is yet to be revealed but I’ll update you all as soon as it is!

  1. My most anticipated book for 2010 as well! Sophie Kinsella has never disappointed me, especially with the Shopaholic books.
    I can't tell you how excited I was when I found out the release date for this one. Now I'm *patiently* waiting to find out what the cover will look like here!

  2. I love this series and I was so excited to find out that there was a new book. I do hope the U.S. cover is good but I'll be reading it regardless. I'm sure the story will be fantastic. I can't wait to see Becky as a mom. Fantastic WoW pick!
