The Mills & Boon Modern Girls Guide to Turning into Your Mother: A Mothers Day Special


With Mother’s Day just around the corner, offspring far and wide are searching for the ultimate gift for the most important woman in their life.  I for one am a complete failure when it comes to gift buying, never knowing which way to turn. Chocolates?  Flowers?  Cliché I hear you call!  Then I had the opportunity to read The Mills & Boon Modern Girls Guide to Turning Into Your Mother and so this year the present buying award goes to yours truly!

This novel is the perfect gift, not only will you find yourself nodding all the way through but also crying with laughter as you recognise yourself throughout its pages.  It’s the sort of book that you’d leave on the coffee table to spark conversation when you have visitors.  It’s hilariously honest, heart-warming and uncannily true to life!

I love the classic look that this book has, it’s vintage, eye-catching and the image makes you smile from the outset.  There are many more images that are guaranteed to put a smile on your face, from date night to tantrums it leaves no stone unturned.  My absolute favourite  passage is entitled ‘Unsuitable Role Models’, the words and image combined had me in stitches!

You know when you pick up a book and automatically skip the ‘Introduction’ and ‘About the Author’ passages?  Well believe me, you are going to want to read every single page of this one.  Even these sections are interesting and witty, the introduction will have you enthralled from the outset!

From start to finish this book not only entertains its reader, but has them laughing out loud at the truth hidden behind the words.  If you are looking for the ideal Mother’s Day present, with no chocolates or flowers in sight, you need look no further.  What better way to kick off Mother’s Day than with a smile and a giggle!

You can purchase your own copy of The Mills & Boon Modern Girls Guide to Turning Into Your Mother here – trust me you’ll get brownie points for this one!

    When my OH asked me what I wanted for Mother’s Day it dawned on me that not only did I have no idea what I wanted but I also had no idea what to get my own mum, or my mother in law for that fact! Thanks for sorting out my Mother’s Day gifts ☺️ #DreamTeam
