Overview

Struggling between her "momminess" and her "sexiness," an unconventional entrepreneur diagnoses herself with Momnesia and sets about finessing a new version of her old vivaciousness:

Momnesia (mahm-nee-zhuh) -noun-
Loss of the memory of who you used to be. Caused by pregnancy, play dates, and trying to keep the house cleaner than the Joneses.

She does find some adventure pursuing her own interests but keeps facing the question, "Is it that I haven't been myself? Or is it that I am being myself but just different than I used to be?" It isn't until she tosses the Invisible Rule Book altogether that she discovers life--and love--have more to offer than she ever imagined!

I loved reading this book! It spoke to something in me that I had overlooked for quite a long time. As the mom of 5, ranging in age from 25 to 13, I had lost a lot of myself as I met the needs of everyone else in the household. Reading Momnesia was eye-opening and gave me the energy to clean out some cobwebs in my own life. It is a great addition to the chick lit genre!

I loved this book, very real to life and every women can relate to most if not all of the same feelings. Feeling beautiful and important is very high on my list and many times after marriage and children that can be a struggle. This book helped me feel not guilty for having these feelings. Great book for Mothers Day.

The honesty and openess of the author made it so easy to relate and think about my own life as a very young mom of 3 boys. I would also say that every woman who has tried to be wife/mom/lover/ and so many other roles in her life would definitely find something in this book to make her realize she is not alone. The way it was written was very creative and I look forward to reading Lori Verni-Fogarsi's next novel "Gramnesia!"

Let me start by saying this author is talented. I would read another book of hers. The novel flowed well, and I found myself not wanting to put the book down. Even the book cover cleverly captures the main character. The author writes with such description that I could picture the setting and put myself in the shoes of the characters. In a way, the author's descriptiveness reminds me somewhat of another author, Frances Mayes. This book explores the dynamics of a relationships centering on the main character who is a mother, wife, daughter, and business owner. She has tried to save her deflated marriage. However, her marriage seems to be in disrepair despite her efforts. Amidst the whispers and judgments of the neighbors and authors, she finally has to make a decision. I received this book for free through a Chick Lit Central give away.

Fun, fiesty book that opens your eyes to being a woman, wife, mother and ultimately your own individual person! This book is a reminder that we cannot get lost in the fog of being what everyone else expects us to be, but to remember who we really are. A must read for every woman!

Funny, witty, sometimes brutally honest read about the life changes and triumphs of a woman. You will enjoy, laugh, gasp and relate to what you encounter.

I have to admit that I struggled with my rating of this book for some time. There are some obvious reasons why I should mark it down. There is a lot of profanity (some of it rather hard core). I have to admit that I could have done without a lot of that, but this is just my opinion. I also could have done without the sex scenes but they were thankfully none of them were detailed. I also didn't like the homosexual situation in the book, but again, there was no detail. I didn't like the morality in the book, but then again, I'm old-fashioned, so I will always say that. Thankfully, the positives do outweigh the negatives. When I read about Paul, I instantly connected. My ex-husband's name is Paul, and there were definite similarities. But Paul actually reminded me more of my dad--that's a long story there. I also connected with the online dating hunt(been there, done that), and I also understand losing myself in my role of mom (amongst other things). And I also can relate to the "temptations" of a single mom. Just because I don't want to read about sex scenes doesn't mean that I don't ever think about it. How the woman stayed in the kind of marriage she did for so long without cheating is beyond me, but I relate again. And let's talk about loss of self worth--I totally agree. In so many ways, this book has something for married moms, single moms, and those women who are somewhere in the middle. As long as you are aware of the precautions above, I can recommend this book to moms everywhere. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

I won this book on the authors site, and I honestly loved it. I had never heard of the book or read anything by her before and I'm happy to discover a new author. It didn't hurt anything that I related to the story from my own life when I was struggling with making the decision to divorce. The voices in my head were there, too, and I heard the arugments whether to or not to, she totally rocked in bringing this struggle out. Also, how it consumes you because you're unhappy and it's on your mind all the time. I just finished this book and immediately started reading her next book Unexpecting. It's started out being interesting to me, also. I recommend this book!!
