The Yummy Mummy

Author Polly Williams just came out with a new book called The Yummy Mummy. She generously sent it to me to review and it gave me a huge case of deja vu. I felt like I had read it before. But how? This was an advance copy. Then it dawned on me, some time ago I was working evenings at Borders Books. One of the perks was being able to select two books per shift from the advance copy bookshelf. I picked out The Yummy Mummy on my own and loved it!

The Yummy Mummy, is a fun book about a postpartum mum who yearns to be a hot mommy. You know the ones that teeter on their black boots and look delicious in their fancypants jeans. How do they manage to carry toddlers in those shoes? I can barely stay upright when I wear my Dansko clogs. Frankly, I'm still biting it when I wear my sneakers. At any rate, a lovely, easy (in the best sense) read. Thanks Polly!

missk - fiction, cute chick lit.

Angelina - no idea! But she sent a nice note and the book.

I worked at Borders years and years ago. Mostly I ate stale scones and created subversive pro-union face outs, and endcaps that combined Oprah and Choprah.

When I announced the Top Ten Reasons Why Borders Is Now Closed over the store intercom, my free reads came to an end. Good times, evil company. LOL!

I would love to get my hands on this book, expecting myself #1 will be interesting to feel attractive when I see what these stretch marks look like after the belly is gone.
