The Unmumsy Mum Diary
February 23rd 2017 | Bantam Press | Hardbacks
In her new book, The Unmumsy Mum Diary, Sarah Turner shares with us a year in her life as a mum, wife, blogger and bestselling author. With her trademark candour and sense of humour, she documents the good days and the bad days, the giggles and the tantrums. She’ll also share poignant, life-changing moments from her year, such as her older son heading off through the school gates for the first time.
When Sarah Turner published her first book, The Unmumsy Mum, in February 2016, she took the parenting world by storm. She started writing the book after becoming disillusioned with the other parenting literature she had read online. Everybody seemed to be coping so well. Where were the tales of mums tearing their hair out after yet another sleepless night and endless re-runs of Peppa Pig? She made a vow then and there to document the reality of parenting. Her subsequent memoir shot straight to the top of the charts and messages of support flooded in from parents all over the UK. She heard from those who shared her sense of fun and sense of humour at the more ridiculous moments of parenting, but also from those who were truly suffering and who had found release in Sarah’s honesty. The Unmumsy Mum set in motion an entire trend of ‘imperfect mothering’ blogs and books which, following Sarah’s template of wit and openness has brought comfort and laughter to hundreds of thousands of ordinary parents and grandparents.
The Unmumsy Mum Diary is as honest as it is hilarious and a peek into Sarah’s innermost thoughts will leave you in no doubt that, on those days when you feel you are not quite cut out for the job, you are most definitely not alone.
