Sizzling Winter Bog Hop! Lori Verni-Fogarsi Expands on the Topic of Momnesia



Thank you Lori for sending me this copy of Momnesia.  There is also a giveaway of Momnesia that involves a treasure hunt.  

Synopsis:
 
Michelle runs her own business, children, and husband.   She does not want to run everything by herself.  The decision becomes how to change  in hopes that it might get her husband to pay attention.   She defines herself as having Momnesia:  “Loss of the memory of who you used to be.  Caused by pregnancy, play dates, and trying to keep the house cleaner than the Joneses.”   Will she be happy after all these changes? Or will Paul notice?

My Thoughts:

I had heard many good things about this novel.  I am always very supportive of books that focus on change.    I was not as connected as I would like to be.   I have never been married and could not exactly identify with the Momnesia.   I feel that wives will enjoy this book about a relationship that isn’t quite what one hopes.   They will also see the humor in Michelle’s adventure in changes and family life.

If you could do anything differently what would you do?  How would you pursue those hobbies?  Are you ready for you next task?

MY TREASURE HUNT CLUE:  CAPER

Rating:

3.75/5

  1. When I try something new, I go in little baby-steps...generally someone pulling me kicking and screaming!
    I'm pretty happy in my skin, so really can't think of anything to try!

  2. Really talk to myself about it, and consider all the positives for it.

  3. I usually consider it carefully and then jump right in. When I want to change anything, the color of the wails, or my relationship with someone else, I have to rip the bandaid off quickly or I will end up talking myself out of it.

  4. I'd get up earlier to try something new.

  5. To try something new, I ask myself "what is the worst that could happen?". In that instance, I think I might enjoy the new experience!
