Sizzling Winter Blog Hop & Treasure Hunt!

Good day faithful followers! I’m glad you’re here. Today I’m participating in this awesome group promotion and giveaway. Not only was I excited to receive a copy of “Momnesia” in exchange for a fair and honest review, but it’s all part of the Sizzling Winter Blog Hop & Treasure Hunt! (I said that last part with my game show voice, in case you couldn’t tell.)

Behold, my review of Momnesia, by Lori Verni-Fogarsi:

Buy Me! Read Me!

When I first signed up for this blog hop, I feared I wouldn’t be able to relate to the content. But as an avid [My Treasure Hunt Word] BIBLIOBIBULI, I gave it a whirl. Then the book opened with the following quote: “For Everyone who has ever…Been a mother, had a mother, wanted to be a mother, judged a mother, or even just wondered about mothers.” Well there ya go! My favorite feature of the story is that it reads like a memoir. In fact, I had to keep reminding myself that it wasn’t written by an underappreciated wife and mother who had decided to take back her livelihood. In fact, it sounded like an extended op-ed piece from Cosmo. Or Eat, Pray, Love without the frequent flyer miles. Completely engrossing and such a breeze to read! I finished it in less than 24 hours. I’m recently married and without kids, so I still couldn’t exactly relate to the story, but it was still entertaining and I’m sure I’ll be able to draw upon it in the future. Although I hope my husband never gives me the “cat face.” Ever. (You have to hurry up and go read the book to get that reference, sorry folks.)

Lori Verni-Fogarsi has been a freelance writer, journalist, columnist, business consultant, speaker, and author for 15+ years. She is a happily married mom of two, step mom of two more, and has two cats, both rotten. You can learn more about her at www.LoriTheAuthor.com.

  1. Honestly, when I first saw it, I thought that woman is going to major problems with her back! It is very attention getting! Thanks for the chance to win!

  2. I do like the cover of the book and the concept. As a retired Air Force single stay-at-home mommy, this is a perfect read for me. I’ve kinda lost the desire to beautify myself when I go out because I’ve let the “mom” in me take over. I cannot remember the last time I dressed up to go out somewhere.

    • I’m not even a mom yet but since we don’t go anywhere that requires more than sweatpants and a ponytail, I’ve lost that desire, too. Although I’ve recently started wearing my hair down again. Perhaps that’s a step in the right direction.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck in the giveaways!

  3. I didn’t read her book yet, but it looks like something I would enjoy. I am a mother, and all mothers tend to ‘get’ each other… so i definitely plan on reading it! I also think the cover is hilarious, and something I might walk out the door wearing on one of those frazzled mornings:)
