This book should be required reading for all mothers, especially for ones who work outside the home. It is the story of a working mom going mad trying to juggle work and family. Her story is also my story and many others. Details may vary person to person but the overa...

This isn't what I expected was the first and, so far, only book I've read on postpartum depression and it definitely gave me a lot to think about - not in a good way. I have no personal experience with ppd nor have I heard or seen its' effects firsthand but the advice...

Clutterfree with kids by Joshua Becker is a surprisingly thoughtful book. I expected some sort of manual or guide to cleaning up as you go along your day not a well written book on mindful parenting! It reminded me a bit of Marie Kondo's book: The Life Changing Magic o...

Real Food by Nina Planck has to be one of my favorite books on nutrition so far. It's completely evidence based with solid studies backing up all her facts and just speaks to the logic in me. So many diets and books are out there now of watch out for this or that and r...

Wonderful information yet so scary! I really enjoyed this book by Bruce Lourie and Rick Smith since it's so relevant to today's chemical saturated life. They take you on their journey of living in today's toxic world and try to see how they can limit the amount of toxi...

These two young adult fiction books by Megan McCafferty are part of a two book series and really follow each other so I'm reviewing them together. In an interesting fictional future, a virus leaves everyone over the age of 18 unable to have children so, of course, it's...

Tiger Babies Strike Back by Kim Wong Keltner, 254pgs

This book was a very honest and easy read of what it's like to grow up conflicted between the culture of your family and the culture all around you. Mostly though, it is a book written in similes and metaphors about b...
