These Books Aren't All New??

Books are expensive. I tend to pick and review books that are both new & old. Many of these books you will be able to find on the shelves on your library as opposed to the front of your bookstore.

I believe that there are many hidden gems from years gone by & I enjoy highlighting those as well as today's best sellers.

Diary Of A New Mum, Jools Oliver


Publisher's Copy:

Being pregnant for the first time changed Jools Oliver’s life. Having longed for children as far back as she can remember, she was suddenly faced with an array of unfamiliar, unexpected, and sometimes downright embarrassing emotional and physical reactions. So when Poppy (and a year later, Daisy) was born, she had to learn a whole new set of skills.

From "minus nine" (her first positive pregnancy test) to "one" (Poppy’s first birthday), Jools takes you through the worries, surprises, excitement, miracles, and very hard work that she -- and all new moms in their own different ways -- had to face along the way.

Down to earth, personal, and very very funny, this is the book no aspiring mother will want to be without.

My Review:

Even though my baby-making years are long behind me, I enjoyed this look at Jools Oliver's pregnancys. Wife of celebu-chef Jamie Oliver, this book shows the stuggle many people face in conceiving, dealing with the true emotions of pregnancy, and struggling through that first year.

When she finds herself pregnant when her first daughter is only 4 months old, life truly turns upside down. Part instructional guide, part memoir, this book includes resources for new moms, recipes for feeding young children in a healthy way, and even terms and definitions for those who aren't familiar with pregnancy terms.

While obviously more helpful for those who are new moms or hope to become new moms, this is a great read.
