I have the honor of being the local book correspondent on Rocket City Mom (RCM), the #1 Online Parenting Resource in Huntsville, the Tennessee Valley, and North Alabama. I review and host a virtual book club on Facebook specifically for moms. Each book is selected because of its mom quotient: does it shed light on a topic of importance to moms? Will it be entertaining for moms, giving them a break from their day? Will it help them navigate the journey of this insanity called mommyhood? It’s a lot of fun and if you’re a mom you should check us out.
Today’s link list contains of three books that I have read and reviewed on the RCM website. If you’re looking for a good read, these come highly recommended.
- Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes – this one helped me come out of the tailspin created by the arrival of the Buddy Man, 10 years into my marriage. A highly entertaining read; you will definitely laugh-out-loud. The perfect little book to pick up over and over again. It’s also great pick for someone who wants to start a reading life.
- I Know How She Does It by Laura Vanderkam – Laura (yes, we’re on a first name basis LOL) is my time management guru. With great tips on how to handle time, this book set me free. But first it made me angry. I use this one as a reference, all the time.
- Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple – a funny little novel about the quirky, and totally relateable (to me, at least) Bernadette. The story telling method is very unique: emails, letters, FBI interviews, articles, and an emergency room bill. Bernadette finds humor amidst a darker side of life and does it brilliantly.
Have you read any of these? I’d love to hear any recommendations for books that moms will love. Please share in the comments.
til tomorrow, enjoy life
P.S. No, I didn’t select these books because of the matching color. That was totally coincidental. I couldn’t believe it either!
