Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, created to discuss books that book bloggers haven’t read yet and they’re usually books yet to be released. I ran across it when looking for new content ideas for The Book Blog Life, and it looked like so much fun. BUT I’m going to break the rules a little, it’s rare for me to be looking forward to book releases, PURELY because I’m so busy with everything else going on I don’t have the time to keep a track of sequels, and so forth. So I think I’m going to do books that are sat on my shelf for a little while and I can’t wait to read them so the first one will be Wilde Like Me.
Meet Robin Wilde! You'll make a friend for life and she'll take you on a journey you'll never forget ...
Single mum Robin Wilde adores her six-year-old daughter and loves her job as a make up artist's assistant. She has a wonderful best friend and an auntie who is bonkers, yes, but loves her to the moon and back.
But Robin has a secret. Behind the mask she carefully applies every day, things just feel ... grey. And lonely. She struggles to fit in with the school mum crew. Online dating is totally despair-inducing, and she worries every day about raising her little girl with self-confidence, courage and joy.
What Robin longs for is someone (over the age of six) to share with - someone who's always on her team.
After 4 years (2 months, and 15 days!) of single-mum-dom, it's time for Robin Wilde to Change. Her. Life.
Exciting new opportunities are about to come Robin's way ... Perhaps a man, perhaps the chance of a lifetime ...
What will Robin do with the possibilities she creates for herself? And what potential will she unlock if she takes the leap?
This was a surprise purchase, both my husband and I have been on crazy schedules the past couple of weeks so I was looking for something to cheer me up a little, a bookstore seemed to be the best place (especially with it being a work night). I have followed Louise Pentland from before she had her first child and still follow her now. So when I heard she was releasing a book, I was immediately interested, however, I’m not a huge fan of hardbacks, they take up too much room and they’re a nuisance to travel with. So I waited for the paperback.
I’m so excited to read Wilde Like Me, I’ve heard great things about the characters and the storyline. I know that the sequel is due out this year as well, so hopefully, I enjoy it enjoy to go and buy that one.
Have you read Wilde Like Me? Am I right to be excited about reading Wilde Like Me? Did it live up to your expectations? Let me know in the comments!
