Happier at Home

After Gianna falls asleep at night I convince myself that Im going to sit down and read instead of waste time in front of the tv and it never happens. Then I pledge that during nap time the following day I will read and again it never happens. I have a whole stack of books waiting to be read. So last week I made a big effort to turn off the tv and read.
I picked this book up from the library and couldn't wait to dive into it

I had read a review about this book that piqued my interest. Supposedly its a great read for us women who are looking to create meaningful relationships with our spouses and kids and to be happier in those areas of our lives. Who doesn't want to be a better mom and wife. I know I do. So I was excited to read a book about my two favorite topics. Marriage and motherhood

Unfortunately I could not get into this book. It's supposed to be a memoir but it read like a textbook.

The authors writing style drove me crazy. Run on paragraphs full of her opinions, quotes, research studies and statistics all taken out of context to prove her point were mind numbingly boring. The first 30 pages were like this. I could barely keep my eyes open

When she actually started talking about her own personal experiences in regards to making herself a happier mom and wife, I was Intrigued. But she would ruin those paragraphs by throwing in some stupid quote or study along with multiple definitions of words that just turned me off.

I have learned nothing from reading this book and will probably be taking it back to the library unfinished. I'm bummed because I was so looking forward to reading this book

Oh well. Anyone have any suggestions for a good read

  1. I do exactly the same thing! If it isn't tv, it's the Internet. And if not the Internet, then I just sit in silence doing nothing. Lol

  2. I just started reading To Kill a Mockingbird per my husband's request. I like it so far!

    I really like your new look! But I was just wondering if you realize at the top trucks is spelled truNks?

  3. I'm glad you said something, because I was looking at this book! I don't think I'll get it now.
