I loved this book! I just had a child so it was the perfect light, fluffy read as I was feeding the baby or whole baby napped. I could absolutely relate to so many of the feelings and experiences in the book! Have already recommended and passed on to friends!

Synopsis:

Ashley is the mother of a nine month old baby. Being a stay at home mom is new territory for Ashley and she is struggling with it. Ashley becomes a fan of Emily who is a mommy blogger and ends up entering a competition Emily is hosting in hopes of becoming a better wife and mother.

Ashley is not totally successful in those endeavors.

At the end of the competition Ashley is able to spend time with Emily and learns that she isn't as perfect as she appears.

My rating:

4/5

I found this book entertaining and relatable. I am a mom and far from a domestic Goddess on the best of days. This book has the tone of chick lit so if you enjoy that style of writing you will probably enjoy this as well.

There were some places where it goes a bit over the top though I think that was done intentionally by the author for entertainment reasons but it made the book feel a bit unrealistic.

Ashley's husband isn't helpful with the baby and honestly I was kind of annoyed that we have another portrayal of a father who is clueless. I would like to see more men in media being shown as good and involved fathers as I believe that is more of the norm. Ashley and her husband are both educated people who are devoted to their family. I feel like he would take a more active role in parenting. Instead, we get some comic moments when he has to care for their daughter while Ashley is away with Emily. This also hugely impacted Ashley and her feelings of being overwhelmed. Honestly, if her husband had been more helpful she wouldn't have had half the struggles she did.

My four star rating is mostly based on how entertaining the book was. It didn't quite go how I was expecting. I was okay with how it went but I didn't love many of the authors choices. I felt like there were openings for many things that needed discussion that just were never discussed. Emily and Ashley's situations are very different yet I felt that Ashley failed to recognize that Emily had money and help that she was lacking. Those things make it easier for Emily to be amazing but that isn't really delved into as I would have liked.

I had a hard time feeling sympathy for Ashley because I felt like she made poor choices in the book over and over which really dug herself into a hole. I often felt frustrated with her and didn't understand why an obviously intelligent woman would make those choices.

I think I was just a little frustrated because I really loved the authors voice. I loved how entertaining this book was. I also related to many of Ashley's struggles as a mom. I also thought the book was quite funny. If a few things in the book had gone differently this could have easily been a 5/5 read for me instead of a 4/5.

I would recommend this book to those who are mothers and who enjoy chick lit style books. ( )

I understand that Bunmi Laditan has a following for her writings on her toddlers and their lives. This is the first I have heard of her, maybe because my children are teens now. I went into this knowing nothing about her writing style.

My initial impression was that I was reading a series of blog posts. I forgot that this was a novel, and starting thinking that these things really happened to her. Maybe some of it was based on real life, but I think parts of it were fiction. It read almost like a series of vignettes, rather than a cohesive story at first. Later it began to have more of a plot, and I felt like I was reading a novel. Then I felt the book got really interesting.

Ashley Keller, the main character, wins a contest and is chosen to participate in a "Motherhood Better" boot camp, run by Emily Walker. Emily appears to be a cross between Oprah Winfrey and Martha Stewart, if they also had children. She is a perfect mommy. Ashley is a less than perfect mommy. Ashley spends a lot of time comparing herself to other moms, and she feels very overwhelmed and inadequate. I think the lesson from this is don't compare yourself to others. No one is as perfect as they seem on the internet.

I really started enjoying the book when Ashley went away for the weekend getaway with the other participants in the mommy boot camp. That part was very fun to read. Overall, I enjoyed this book, even though I had some blog vs fiction confusion. It was funny and interesting. Just remember, everyone is different and nobody is perfect.

I received a free uncorrected proof from the publisher through goodreads giveaway in exchange for my honest review. ( )

This is a novelization of motherhood by Bunmi Laditan (the mind behind the brilliant @honesttoddler ) that I found entirely relatable, as though she’d been eavesdropping in my own mind. Ashley is every hot mess mom trying to do it right and feeling like a failure at every turn. Laditan captured what it’s like in the brain of a mom. The storyline though, was a little forced. Ashley gets accepted to be in a boot camp put on by a celebrity blogger and I feel like that’s a pretty unrealistic plot device. She could have easily had these same adventures, experiences and failures without the reality show angle. In all, I’d say 3.5/5 stars because there are funny, heartwarming and truthful moments. I think if you’re not a mom, or maybe one of those totally together moms, there wouldn’t be much for you to enjoy. For me though, I spent the first 100 pages nodding in agreement and wondering how Laditan was listening to my thoughts. ( )
