Role Mommy Book Club Review

Thumbs up to a quick read for sarcastic moms everywhere!

I have to admit, it’s been a while since I’ve posted a book review and here’s the reason – I haven’t been reading much lately, and that gets me depressed – plus it makes me realize it’s time for a vacation.  So while I was searching my book shelf for a good read, I realized that I had read a hilarious book on my last vacation so I figured it was time to finally give it a proper Role Mommy shout out.


The book is called The Woman who is Always Tan and Has a Flat Stomach by Lauren Allison and Lisa Perry.  A title after my own heart, this book was originally self published but caught on with readers and it was eventually picked up by Grand Central Publishing.  On that feat alone, the authors get a high five in my book for their perseverance!

The premise of the book is simple – it features essays about all those annoying people you come in contact with as a parent and eloquently shares all the reasons why they get under our skin.  I have to admit, I found myself laughing out loud for 90 minutes straight and I pretty much finished it during a plane ride.  So if you only have a few hours to spare – or even a few minutes, then pick up this book – it’s a fabulous read!
