Hello and welcome to my blog this Monday morning. I would like to share with you a book review today as part of the book tour with Rachels Random Resources. The 3am Shattered mums club is written by Nina Manning and was published on 26th October 2022.
Three best friends. One late-night lifeline.
Meet Aisha, Sophy and Mel. Three new mums. All absolutely shattered.
For her social media fans, influencer Sophy has the picture-perfect life. But why does she feel so lonely all the time?
Older mum Mel wasn’t planning on being a mum later in life. What does this all mean for the career that she loved? Can she ever go back?
And Aisha, whose much loved twin boys bring her so much joy, but have caused a rift in her own family that she isn’t sure she can ever fix.
Navigating this new world of motherhood is hard. And the only sanity these three friends have is their 3am mums’ club, where they can chat and support each other in the dark of the night as their babies, finally, finally sleep.
But in the still of the night, secrets are revealed that could turn all their lives upside down…. more than they already are!
Bestselling author Nina Manning is back with a brand-new story of mum guilt, parenting pitfalls and friendship around the clock.
I really enjoyed this book it took me back to the days of my own 3am wake ups with my little one in those early days. I could really relate to all three ladies in the story, they each had a little bit that I had experienced as a new mum and it was helpful to read about some of the things they felt and struggled with. It made my own past experiences feel validated, nice to know you are not alone in the 3am twilight hours!
The three main characters were all strong women with different lives however they find a connection with each other and they are able to support each other through an especially hard time in motherhood. I loved their links, their banter and their friendship together. They each had a strength which shone through even when they felt the most hopeless. Together they were able to get through those dark times and push forward into the next chapter.
The side characters were a great addition, Martina, Charley, Niall, Jeff, Daz - they all added a little extra to support the ladies in their journeys. They built up the lives and souls of the characters and helped share their stories.
This book made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion, only the 4am mums club could utter a sentence like "Congratulations on your vagina, Sophy!" It was funny, quirky, sad and lonely and it made me crave finders crispy pancakes! Wholly enjoyable and highly recommended, I suggest you add it to your TBR!
