I love being a Mills & Boon Insider!!
A couple of days ago, I came home from work to find an envelope with what felt like a book in it. I haven’t ordered any books, so I was intrigued and ripped into it to find a surprise from Mills & Boon—a shiny copy of The Mills & Boon Modern Girl’s Guide to Turning into Your Mother! I was so excited! I love these books and this felt like a very special Mother’s day gift. One that my little ones (or Dear Hubby, for that matter), would never think to get me.
I was first a fan of the Ladybird books for grownups, and was thrilled to hear that Mills & Boon was coming out with a similar series. M&B have definitely raised the bar. These Modern Girl’s Guides are thicker, beautifully styled, and sport the sort of glossy cover you would expect from M&B. Quite simply, these books are pure class.
As for this particular title, let me go ahead and say it: This book is brilliant!
I have laughed my way all the way through it. The pictures are circa 1940s and reminiscent of the Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire era, my favourite era even though I’m not really old enough to know all of these—honestly, I’m not! Wanna see my birth certificate?! This makes the hilarious text accompanying each picture that much funnier.
As the mother of two
brats little darlings, I found that every single
page is horrifyingly, hysterically relatable (even if you don’t want to admit
it because you are one of those Pinterest mums). So grab a box of wine, a copy
of The Mills & Boon Modern Girl’s Guide to Turning into Your Mother, and
relax knowing that you are not the only one who struggles with motherhood.
Not a mother, but have one? Head over to Amazon and order a copy for your mum for Mother’s Day. It’s on Prime. You can have it by Saturday. Come on, people, I posted early to give you enough time AND linked it HERE! Go order a copy now!!
