SAHM I Am...Review

About the book:
For the members of a stay-at-home-moms' e-mail loop, lunch with friends is a sandwich in front of the computer. But where else could they discuss things like . . .
  Success: Her workaholic husband is driving Dulcie Huckleberry around the bend. It's hard to love someone in sickness and in health when he's never home!
 
Art: Let the children express themselves, opines artistic Zelia Muzuwa, and then her son's head gets stuck inside a kitty scratching post . . .

Health: Surely aches and pains are normal in an active little boy, yet those of soccer-mom Jocelyn Millard's son don't seem to be going away.

Motherhood: Teen-mom-turned-farmer's-wife Brenna Lindberg can deal with the mud and the chickens, but what about her husband's desire for a child of his own?

Indiscretions: However youthful, they can come back to haunt you, learns pastor's wife Phyllis Lorimer.

Amends: These could stand to be made between officious list moderator Rosalyn Ebberly and her pampered sister, Veronica. Perhaps the other SAHM I AMers can teach these two something about sisterhood.


Chick-lit. No wait, I like some chick-lit. This was more chick-light. Anyone who has ever been on an email/yahoo-type group will understand the book. You'll even identify with some of the characters, and the misunderstandings that come about because so much is lost with email communication. I did find a couple of the characters simply too extreme and unrealistic. There were none I neither identified with nor cared about.

It was laugh out loud funny in places, but for the most part, I found it annoying. It is written in email format and is a very quick, very light read. I couldn't get it finished fast enough. Although it was quite popular on Goodreads, this one won't be going on my bookshelf.

  1. Holly, I'm so glad you visited yesterday! I love books tremendously, and if my stack of "to-read" books goes lower that three, I panic and run to the library for 7-8 more (or the bookstore...hands down my favorite place to visit!).

    I'll be checking back to discuss books and get ideas on what to read next.

    God bless, and happy reading!
