A BUMP IN THE ROAD & NOT READY FOR MOM JEANS by Maureen Lipinski

Winner Announced!
Congrats to:
Sarah S.
I know you've been here every day too so your persistence has paid off! Please email me at stephanieelliot@gmail.com with your full name and address so you can receive your books. And random.org continues to choose the winners so I can assure you that you didn't win because you said MaNiC MoMMy and Jennsylvania were your fave go-to blogs! Speaking of Jen Lancaster -- her books are coming soon everyone! I know a lot of you came here because of her shout-out! : )



Books: A Bump in the Road and Not Ready for Mom Jeans

Author: Maureen Lipinski

Website: Maureenlipinski.com

Blog: Now That You Mention It

Winner: Sarah S.

Here’s another local author I was sad to leave when I moved from the Chicago area, but I’m happy to be bringing her books to you! Maureen Lipinski and I also met on the Chick Lit Yahoo Group (Man, that group started out with some pretty amazing women who are now some MAJOR successful authors!). She and I hit it off when we discovered our first books had something in common, strangely enough, A LOT in common, but alas, hers found its way to the bookshelves while my first attempt remains where it must – the drawer!


Maureen and Jess Riley w/ Jen Lancaster's book My Fair Lazy

Maureen is the author of A Bump in the Road and the sequel Not Ready for Mom Jeans and here’s my Amazon review of Bump I wrote a long while ago:

A perfect read for moms and moms-to-be. You'll laugh at the antics of Clare Finnegan, internet star, who discovers she's pregnant after a romp in Vegas. In this case, what happens in Vegas DOESN'T stay in Vegas, and Clare and Jake go from "happy hour to baby shower!"

As Clare grows her baby, fondly calling him Mr. Skeletor, she also deals with her feuding best friends, coworkers that'll make anyone cringe, a stressful job that requires a lot of "ABSOLUTELYs", and watching other people get drunk.

If you like chick lit, are thinking about being pregnant, have no desire to be pregnant, have been pregnant, and remember what it's like to be pregnant, and can still LAUGH at the memories, you'll LOVE this book.

And the sequel, Not Ready for Mom Jeans (why the HELL do Mom Jeans even exist anyway?), and sidenote, last time Maureen and I went out, before I moved from Chicago, I was SOOO nervous she was going to think my jeans were MOM JEANS! …

Event planner and famous blogger Clare Finnegan expected to go back to work after her daughter was born. After all, she worked hard for her success...and it's not like now that she has a child, she has to buy a minivan, wear Mom Jeans and give up her career, right?

Despite more than a few pounds of baby weight still left to lose, Clare dons her Miss Piggy Pants and returns to work. She plans a swanky Sweet Sixteen party and pulls off a million-dollar golf outing, has to come to terms with her mother's breast cancer, and is left so exhausted that she can’t remember her ATM card’s pin number. After another meeting runs late and she misses another one of her daughter’s milestones, Clare allows herself to examine an alternate choice: staying home.

A laugh out loud novel about motherhood, life, and the quest for eight hours of sleep.


So there ya have it! Whether you’re a mom, thinking about becoming a mom, a woman, a grandma, a sister, an aunt, a cousin, a daughter, whatever, you’re gonna love Maureen’s books!

And she’s got more coming your way too! She’s got a Young Adult coming out called Shadow’s Edge, which is the story of sixteen-year-old Leah Spencer, an unwilling Otherworld shaman (I don’t know what a shaman is either!?—Maureen??) with three sisters (each with their own magical "gift") who must choose between normal high school and "getting all CSI" on an Otherworld murder spree.

Since Maureen’s main character, Clare, is a famous blogger and internet star, leave a comment telling me one of your daily go-to blogs or favorite websites. I’d like to check them out! Thanks!

Love ya, Mo! I know ya got yer hands full there! ; )

*****
Please leave a comment, and all those who do will qualify to win both of Maureen's books! I’ll draw the winner in a couple of days and I will post the winner’s name at the TOP of this post, in the highlighted area.


Come back and read about each book every day in March. Choose the books you'd like to win. Enter for any or ALL the books. Each entry will count as an entry toward the grand prize of winning ALL 31+ books at the end of the month. You can win the book of the day and still qualify to win ALL the books at the end of the month!


PLEASE be specific with your name in the comment section, and IF YOUR NAME is listed as the winner, you must email me at stephanieelliot@gmail.com in order to claim your prize. Email me with your full name and address so I can have your book(s) sent to you.


Thanks, and GOOD LUCK! And come back tomorrow to see what book I’ll be giving away then too!


It’s MaNiC MoMMy’s March Madness Book-A-Day Giveaway! Read ALL the Rules and Details Here!

The funniest blog in the universe is Hyperbole and A Half.

Also, for mommy blogs I like Amalah, Rants from Mommyland, and Stark Raving Mad Mommy.

One of my favorite websites is called the West Virginia Surf Report (WVSR). It's written by a guy called Jeff Kay and talks about his life family, job, crazy neighbors and crazy everyday people. I check it at least twice a day. He is more into music than books so I get to check out a lot of new tunes that I normally wouldn't.

Well I've done ivillage for years for pregnancy groups and through my miscarriages. A number of girls got really tight and have become awesome facebook friends and we chat daily in a thread! Heck there have even been get togethers! They are such cool ladies on ivillage. As far as blogs go, I'm trying to start my own book review blog, as I'm also trying to kick start writing a book. When I find time between naps and bedtime, lol! My sad little single review blog (hey just finished the next book and need to sit and write the review) is at http://anovelreview.blogspot.com/

it's a work in progress. So pick me :)
