My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you only ever read one self-help book let it be this one. It’s almost a five for one deal in that the author has painstakingly researched and ferreted out the best of the best in various areas of psychology that is vital for a healthy marriage.

I think that many, if not most women can relate to the cover image of this book. The harried, flustered mother just trying to get by day by day with as much sanity as she started with, while her frustratingly nonchalant husband casually lives life by the seat of his pants. Probably because he has what we don’t…a wife looking out for everything!

I loved how thorough this book was. Everything that could be affecting a marriage was included in here, from chore distribution to sex life and date nights (or lack thereof), to child discipline to anger issues and ostrich syndrome (hiding your head under the sand). There really are so many moving parts in a marriage, and so many seemingly small things that can make a huge difference. I loved that they were all addressed in a very genuine and thoughtful manner.

The author was so honest in this book, I was very impressed. I think that honesty is what made this book impossible to put down. You can’t help but trust in her genuine desire to fix her marriage. That raw desire for improvement seeps off of the page and you find your own ember for change and happiness reignited.

Buy, Borrow or Bin Verdict: Buy (This would also make a great baby shower gift!)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
As a new(ish) mother, I have been having a lot of fun reading about the “perils of parenthood”. In truth I enjoyed these works long before I was a mother, but now that I am one they are even more relatable, and therefore even more amusing/intimidating.

I’m not gonna lie, some of the comics I see of the terrible twos are indeed terrifying. However Lunarbaboon always levies these stressful situations with the funny and bizarre. These quick sketches/comics were great fun to read, and while a couple of them left me scratching my head, most had me giggling with delight.
