Mum of one, Jess has had enough of endless diaper-filled days and her husband Chris has just the solution to vent her frustrations – a blog.
Jess loves her daughter more than anything, but sometimes she just wants a little bit of freedom – some time for herself. Cue a laptop, a glass of wine and the beginning of a life-changing journey.

Overnight Jess's inbox is full of notifications and before long she is officially a 'mummy blogger' but this new life comes with its own set of rules and regulations. With Queen of the Bloggers, Tiggy, blanking her in public, people recognizing her on the street and her life decisions suddenly judged by strangers Jess's idea of 'me time' is slowly becoming a full-time job.

Will Jess be able to find the right life/work balance? Or will she wish she'd never turned to a world online?

ARC REVIEW Refreshing Tear Jerker

First Line of From Mum With Love by Louise Emma Clarke

“It was pitch dark and very nearly silent, bar the occasional roar of a car passing on the street below.”

My Thoughts on From Mum With Love by Louise Emma Clarke

This book explores the theme of how to keep your identity when you become a mum. And how to balance all the relationships in your life, while still trying to carve out time just to be you, and holding back some time to allow you to follow your dreams. I know, as someone who is always trying (and failing) to do all the things, that this theme felt very real. So, I empathised with her struggle.

Jess turns to blogging as way to express her feelings at being a mother, and to capture the highs and lows of everyday life. Of course, I enjoyed her blog entries which were letters to her daughter documenting a lovely mixture of poignant and funny moments in their lives.

Still, I did find it hard to swallow how quickly her blog grew, but I suppose that must be how it happens for some influencers. I also felt the social media side wasn’t emphasised enough, as that is where the growth seems to be nowadays, so that part didn’t ring true to me. Although maybe I’m just bitter because I never got all the attention that Jess did!

From Mum with Love by @mumofboysmabel is an easy to read, easy to relate to book about being a blogger, a wife, a mother and a friend. If you are any combo of the above, you'll enjoy this heartwarming, funny read. Click To Tweet
