So as I am writing this post, the first thing that came to me was…
When do moms ever find time to just sit and read anymore?
Pretty much never, BUT when you do get the time, making sure it’s the perfect book is so important. The worst is when you get a minute to read and the book is totally boring. I used to love reading fiction novels. The feeling of just relating to the character like it’s your life. Being so caught up in the moments and the details, that you feel like you are in another world.
So now maybe it won’t be as serene with kids running around, but there are some pretty fun mom books out there that I would totally recommend everyone to read. They kinda make you feel like it’s just all OK, no matter what hurdles you have gone through! Check out my top 5 great books for any mom to read.

Some Women is a book that shows the importance of friendships in any motherhood journey. It takes a housewives reality show into a more real life story.
