THE UNMUMSY MUM The Hilarious Highs and Emotional Lows of Motherhood By Sarah TurnerTHE UNMUMSY MUM The Hilarious Highs and Emotional Lows of Motherhood

From Sarah Turner, creator of the popular UK blog THE UNMUMSY MUM comes her best-selling memoir of the same name, an entertaining ode to motherhood and all things baby.

When “Hurricane Baby” hit the Turner household in the winter of 2012, Sarah Turner was shocked by how unprepared she was to be a Mum. Nobody told her about the midnight feedings that would result in serious sleep deprivation or the fact that she’d constantly berate herself for not being “loving enough” when in actuality, she was quite the opposite. Upon hitting a parenting wall, Turner did what any self-respecting Mum-in-angst would do: she turned to the Internet in search of kindred spirits. Upon finding none she decided to take matters into her own hands and it wasn’t long before her blog about the “hilarious highs and emotional lows” of motherhood had become a whopping success and a bestselling memoir.

Turner will be the first to warn you that she didn’t set out to write a comprehensive parenting guide and although this little tome is a guidebook of sorts, Turner’s writing is anything but clinical. Part love letter to motherhood, part cautionary tale, the author’s upfront and unabashedly honest take on everything from natural childbirth to breastfeeding to fighting the daily grind brings home the bundle of joy that is a great read. I absolutely fell in love with Turner’s emotional rock of a husband James, a man who always has her back but isn’t afraid to point out the crazy when he sees it, and who hums along in the background of this un-put-downable narrative along with her two adorable sons.

Even if you’re not a Mum, which I am not, you’ll be carried away from word one by this priceless memoir which kept me up way past my bedtime despite the fact that I wasn’t attending to any midnight feedings of my own.


IN THE GLOW OF THE LAVALAMP Stories of Bad Sex and Other MisfortunesIN THE GLOW OF THE LAVALAMP Stories of Bad Sex and Other Misfortunes
By Lily Wilson

Have you ever had bad sex? We’re talking sex so bad you wanted to write a book about it? Well evidently, author Lily Wilson has done both. After baring-it-all between the sheets, in a host of unlikely scenarios, she also decided to bare-it-all between the pages of her brand new book IN THE GLOW OF THE LAVALAMP and the result is nothing short of wonderful.

Rather than just looking for love in all the wrong places it seems that Wilson has actually found it on more than one occasion. And in Part One of this engaging collection, “Bad Sex”, she offers up ten tales of sex-gone-awry which prove that one’s best-laid plans can lead to disaster, whether you’re trying to get it on at a Civil War Battlefield or in a hot tub that’s guarded by a jealous cat. “I Sorry”, one of my favorites, explores the embarrassing and deeply disturbing effects baby talk can have on one’s sex life. And by the time you reach Part Two, “Other Misfortunes” you’ll be glued to the page as Wilson spins even more tales of woe in her unflinchingly-honest and witty voice with stories like “The Sample” and “The Adjunct”.

Wilson has a knack for telling it like it was in a way that’s both hilarious and heartfelt. This is one of those collections you can pick up and open to any page, knowing you won’t be disappointed no matter where you land.
