I'm a busy mom like most and rarely make time to sit down and actually read a book anymore. However, something about Confessions of a Scary Mommy grabbed ahold of me and I couldn't put it down. In the course of a day, I read the entire book from cover to cover...it really is that good. Jill Smokler's approach to motherhood is honest, refreshing, and will have you racing to the next page. What I really love about this book is it's ability to say "yes, parenting is hard, but it is so very worth it."

I was so disappointedvwith this book. I was hoping for a funny and insightful read about the challenges of motherhood. Instead, it read like a blog. The writing was choppy, disjointed and at points a bit rambling. There were a few humorous parts but overall she went for the obvious laugh and it was not very insightful.

In short, I was sorry I bought this book.

    Fun Read

    I had fun reading this book. It was witty and made me laugh out loud a few times. Jill says the things everyone thinks but may not necessarily say out loud. Something to help take the pressure off.
