Sarah Turner – The Unmumsy Mum Diaries

‘Reading’ this book as an audio book was such a good choice – except for the fact that I found myself laughing to myself like a loon on my morning walks. Partly because some of the stories in the book were so funny, but partly because all I could think about was how awkward it must have been to record the audio version with sound engineers and other people looking on.

I read another Unmumsy book last year, and while I’m not the target demographic (not a mum), there were so many parts that were relatable and made me want to nod along in agreement. But also many parts that I feel like I should remember for when the book becomes more relatable in future – if some of the stories haven’t scared me off when I remember them without the humorous element in the front of my mind!

I know there’s been a trend of more parenting books coming out over the last few years, but I do truly think this one is fab – having seen the author’s posts on Instagram, it felt so real.
