Weekly Book Club {12.13.17}


I’m counting down the days until Christmas break. I want to curl up in my fleece pj’s on the couch in front of a fire and just read. Just read and read and read. I have SO MANY books still on my TBR lists that I’m dying to have time to read. I’m sharing 2 amazing books with you today that I loved! I hope after Christmas break I will have a bunch of books to share!

1. Confessions of a Domestic Failure by Bunmi Laditan– There are good moms and bad moms—and then there are hot-mess moms. Introducing Ashley Keller, career girl turned stay-at-home mom who’s trying to navigate the world of Pinterest-perfect, Facebook-fantastic and Instagram-impressive mommies but failing miserably. When Ashley gets the opportunity to participate in the Motherhood Better boot camp run by the mommy-blog-empire maven she idolizes, she jumps at the chance to become the perfect mom she’s always wanted to be. But will she fly high or flop With her razor-sharp wit and knack for finding the funny in everything, Bunmi Laditan creates a character as flawed and lovable as Bridget Jones or Becky Bloomwood while hilariously lambasting the societal pressures placed upon every new mother. At its heart, Ashley’s story reminds moms that there’s no way to be perfect, but many ways to be great.

My Rating: 5 Stars

I loved this book so hard. I devoured it. I’m dying for her to write a sequel. I could relate to the envy the main character felt towards her idol. I laughed out loud so many times during this book, y’all. The main character’s antics were hilarious but not in an over the top, unbelievable way. She was easy to relate to, easy to sympathize with, and easy to like. This book is for every mom who ever got down on herself for not being super mom. 

2. Justice for Erin by Susan Stoker– Part-time bartender Erin Gardner is friendly to everyone who bellies up to her bar, including the local law enforcement and firefighters who keep her city safe. That’s where she meets game warden Conor Paxton, a regular who she asks to join a canoeing trip she’s leading for her university day job. When the trip leads to something more, Erin couldn’t be happier. Conor adores Erin, more than enough to help her continue to get over lingering self-esteem issues from her childhood. He’s thrilled he’s found someone who enjoys spending time in nature as much as he does. Just when the couple thinks they’re on their way to a happily ever after, Erin finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time. But there’s no way she’ll just lay down and die. She’s woman enough to save herself—and lead her man to her when she’s done. 

My Rating: 5 Stars

This is the 9th book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings. I love this author and I love this series. I love how the main characters are flawed human beings that I can relate to. They aren’t living a perfect life, they have struggles and scars and past hurts. This was a fantastic addition to the series.
