Confessions of a Domestic Failure by Bunmi Laditan

Into the Wild

Read Confessions of a Domestic Failure Online Free - 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.

Find all of my reviews at: I had originally planned on giving this 2 Stars because apparently I’m a nicer version of me in 2017 and I’m not handing out 1 Stars like candy, but simply taking a once-over of my notes and highlights has me looking a little like . . ....

I am just going to come right out and say it: I did not love this book. I do, however, love Bunmi Laditan and her honest take on the world. So I was sorely disappointed to find between the pages a spiritless novel nowhere near the level of clever wit that Laditan employs in her well-known Faceboo...

As a long-time follower of Bunmi Laditan on Facebook, I knew more or less what to expect with Confessions of a Domestic Failure. If you are new to Bunmi's writing, you're in for a treat. Bunmi is refreshingly honest and funny, and although this book is a work of fiction, it mirrors her personal s...

Cute! Really illustrates the absurdity of how some people chase that elusive, albeit superficial, image of domestic perfection; reminds me of many suburban moms I know! Nice people, but....

Ashley Keller was an up-and-coming marketing exec before she unexpectedly got pregnant right after her wedding to her husband, David. Now she’s at home, trying to figure out how to take care of her baby, her house, her marriage, and herself at the same time. Like most parents, she’s struggling. I...

I listened to the audiobook version of this which may have affected my rating. Ashley is a bit too much like the main character in the Shopaholic books - too much of a hot mess for me to deal with. Like when her husband confesses that money is an issue, she charges $8,000 in furniture. And keeps...

Reading this book brought out a lot of emotions that I really didn’t expect. One of the more interesting emotions was anger. Anger that social media/TV has brought us ALL to think that we are all failures, not just mother’s. At everything. (Remember Martha Stewart?) I never thought my attempts a...

I love Bunmi Laditan. Her Facebook posts are witty and gutsy. Hers is a valuable and important voice on motherhood. Unfortunately, this book wasn't great. While there were elements that were certainly relatable, it centered so much on the external and daily slog of motherhood rather than the emot...

This pains me to not give this book 5 stars. I read and chuckle at her Facebook posts. I like that she is so real with anything she writes, but I couldn't love this book. I actually saw a little of myself as a first-time mom in the character of Ashley, but maybe now that my youngest is going to st...

"To gluten!" 🥂😆 This was a really fun read! Laditan - of Honest Toddler fame - imparts a satirical spin on mom life while simultaneously tackling some very real issues faced by new parents. As a SAHM myself, I found the main character Ashley particularly relatable and I loved her dearly. I enjoyed...
