Confessions of a Domestic Failure - Bunmi Laditan Book Description

From the creator of The Honest Toddler comes a fiction debut sure to be a must-read for moms everywhere 

There are good moms and bad moms—and then there are hot-mess moms. Introducing Ashley Keller, career girl turned stay-at-home mom who's trying to navigate the world of Pinterest-perfect, Facebook-fantastic and Instagram-impressive mommies but failing miserably.  

When Ashley gets the opportunity to participate in the Motherhood Better boot camp run by the mommy-blog-empire maven she idolizes, she jumps at the chance to become the perfect mom she's always wanted to be. But will she fly high or flop? 

With her razor-sharp wit and knack for finding the funny in everything, Bunmi Laditan creates a character as flawed and lovable as Bridget Jones or Becky Bloomwood while hilariously lambasting the societal pressures placed upon every new mother. At its heart, Ashley's story reminds moms that there's no way to be perfect, but many ways to be great.

Book Reviews

  • Best I’ve ever read

    By Deire
    Immediate solidarity with every page. I even feel slightly motivated to clean and organize. I have Fritos to finish first, though. Seriously, you need this book.
  • Worth every penny

    By KrystaNE2010
    This book hit me in every single one of my mama feels. I cried several times while reading it. And I'm sure I'll be reading it again in the future. Mom life is HARD and this book shows that wonderfully.
  • Totally Relatable

    By KaitJo
    Loved every second of this book.
  • Hilarious and relatable

    I am only halfway done but I had to write this review. I love everything about it so far! It reminds me so much of when I first had my daughter (and of course a lot still applies today!). It is witty and at the same time extremely comforting - knowing you're not the only one who thought you were failing! Would make a great baby shower gift- and should be a must read for any moms to be. I could totally see this being made into a movie one day!
