Hello, today I am sharing my review for The Singles Mums Book Club. This is the perfect summer read, and I hope you will pick it up. Thank you to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for allowing me to be a part of the tour.
t’s 8:30am and I’m already utterly exhausted. My son has lost his football boots, my daughter is ready for school dressed only in her vest and knickers, and of course, my 1-year-old has filled his nappy for what feels like the tenth time this morning.
As for my husband? He’s decided marriage doesn’t suit him, and well… buggered off.
All hope of ‘me time’ has but dwindled to sipping half a glass of wine whilst shouting after the kids. But everything is about to change.
I’m taking control of my life! I’ve joined… a book club.
Yes, I know what you’re thinking. ‘Wow… live a little.’ But my fellow book clubbers, Amanda and Janey, are my lifelines. They understand the daily struggle because they’re mothers too.
And in between the prosecco, Doritos and googling everything about Mr Darcy on SparkNotes, they’ve convinced me to go on a date with my boss.
A single mum of three looking for romance… what could possibly go wrong?
A gloriously funny and relatable read for anyone who just needs a little more ‘me time’. Fans of Why Mummy Drinks and Has Anyone Seen my Sex Life? will snort with laughter at this utterly hilarious and heart-warming read.
A lovely book about friendship and the start of something new in life.
Stephanie has three children and is a new single mom. She is trying to make it all work and when she meets a fellow mom at the store, they strike up a friendship and soon a book club to get together and be with each other emerges.
This is a great look at being parent and still being a person. Stephanie shows how hard it cane be to have kids while also deciding what the best step for her own well being was. I appreciated this book very much, and I could relate to some aspects even though I am not a single parent.
I loved the friendship and humor. This is truly a lovely book, and I would love to read more from the author.
