Review: The Mills and Boon Modern Girl's Guide to Turning Into Your Mother by Ada Adverse

Perfect for mothers' day here in the US!

Have you ever…?
A) Opened your mouth and heard your mother come out?
B) Wondered whether a bunch of flowers and breakfast in bed once a year really makes up for the 37 hours your mum spent in St Agnes’ Maternity Ward?
C) Voiced a heartfelt opinion on the weather?
If so, the Mills & Boon Modern Girl’s Guide to Turning Into Your Mother is for you: a guide to the joys of motherhood – with a feminist twist.

Review: now I am not a mother, but when I received this book, just before mothers day, I had to dive right in. This book follows the current trend for books in the style of children's how to books but with grown-up funny things on each page. This structure of this one is that it is an A-Z of things that mums and perhaps their children too, do and feel every day. Of course there is a comedy twist to it and I laughed my way through this one. 

This book would make the perfect gift for anyone who is a mum because there are definitely things in here that any mum will be able to relate to such a not being able to go to the bathroom on your own or one day of breakfast in bed making up for all the other stuff you have to deal with on a daily basis. Of course this is the guide for turning into your mother and so I found things resonating with me, as a get older, despite the fact that I am not a mum yet. 

Whether you have children or not, I am sure that you will be able to find the humour in this book. I read this one from cover to cover in one sitting, reading most pages out loud to my parents who were also in the room. This book could be picked up again and again however, providing a bit of light relief and humour just when you need it. Since mother's day is over in the UK, consider this one for your next gift giving occasion, Easter, Birthdays etc because I can assure you, it will be very much appreciated!
