Welcome to Sneak Peek Saturday on Reading List!

Sneak Peek Saturday on Reading List a glimpse into what I am reading currently
 

Current book:

Your Roots are Showing

4030408Lizzie Buckley has a life many women dream of – a gorgeous husband, a beautiful home and darling (when they’re not fighting) three-year-old twins. But ever since the birth of her children, she’s had a fantasy about locking herself in her bedroom for twenty-four hours with a good book and a box of chocolates.

Unfortunately, her husband James doesn’t understand her feelings. And when Lizzie unburdens herself in a flaming email to her sister Janie, then hits send at the wrong moment and accidentally shoots it off to James instead, her fairytale life gets a big dose of reality. With the word “divorce” ringing in her ears, Lizzie finds herself moving out and embarking on a totally different life – working hard to reinvent herself as a runner, a gardener, and a writer of children’s books.

But despite transforming her body, her neglected career, and her libido (courtesy of the local landscape gardener), Lizzie can’t get over her soon-to-be ex. As Lizzie discovers, sometimes the fairytale ending is just the beginning of the real story.

“I brought them back, because the whole thing was a bloody nightmare. They were howling for you  by mid morning, and mum was ready to bite a chunk out of somebody. “

 
 
 

Initial Thoughts

loving this book. No mother is or has to be perfect. When others tell you that, it’s their own insecurities coming through. This book shows what happens when a mom, who tries to be perfect, finally tells the truth. Can those who pass judgement do a better job?
How will it end? I am reading as fast as I can to find out.
