How to Be a Grown-up by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus

I won an advanced copy of this book in a GoodReads giveaway MONTHS ago.  I've worked on it a chapter here and a chapter there, but because my TBR list is so long, it got shuffled to the back.  Now that I've finished the book, I'm sad it took me so long because I loved it!

Rory McGovern's actor husband loses his job and interest in their marriage.  Hoping this is some sort of phase, Rory is trying to be supportive and give him the space he needs to clear his head and get back on track.  Meanwhile, though, she is a single mom who is forced to take a full time job to support her family.  She finds a job at a "children's lifestyle" site ran by a couple of women in their 20s who have no children or husbands or desire to obtain either.

I ended up reading well over 2/3s of this book as my last book of the Read-a-thon.  I started it in the evening and I was happy to keep reading it until almost five in the morning.  I  highly recommend this to the mom's or the future mom's or the ladies who never plan to be mom's, so basically the ladies will enjoy this one.  Men may like it too, I guess, I don't know what happens in their heads...

Have you read anything by these authors?  What did you think?  Talk to me, I love to hear from you!


  1. I thought this would be a self-help book on how to actually be a grown up. Ha! Sounds like a good story, light-hearted maybe?

    I haven't read anything by them, or many other authors, but I like your reviews of stuff. Good job finishing yet another book!

  2. I've finished another book and have another chapter of Genesis to post. Stay tuned!
