Is it March already? Blimey! Where's this year going?? Anyway, it's time for me to feature another book in my Featured Book of the Month slot, and this month I'm choosing the excellent Diary of a Mummy Misfit by the very talented author, Amanda Egan.
When Libby Marchant and husband Ned made the monumental decision to sacrifice luxuries and holidays to see their only son Max through private education, they hadn’t expected to meet so many unsavoury and dislikeable personalities along the way.
Happily, the cruel jibes of the pompous ‘Meemies’ are made more tolerable by the lasting and loyal friendship they strike up with the affluent Fenella & Josh.
Follow Libby’s journey as she discovers the chasm between the Haves and the Have-Nots in her mad new world of school committees, designer handbags, bitching and botox.
With Fenella by her side, Libby is able to maintain her sanity. But what happens when the credit crunch bites, you’re desperate for another baby and your Asian neighbour is trying to match-make you with her infatuated son?
I've read this book, and I loved it! In fact, you can read my review of it here in this blog post Review - Diary of a Mummy Misfit.
If it's a well-written, very funny slice of British chick-lit you're after, then I wholeheartedly recommend this book. I don't think you'll be disappointed. :-)
Amanda has also written the sequel to Diary of a Mummy Misfit, The Darker Side of Mummy Misfit, both of which are available to download as ebooks from Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com, or you can buy the books in paperback from Lulu.com
