    MOMS ARE FROM MARS by Janene Murphy, is one of the funniest books I’ve read this year. I loved it so much, I gave the author the following cover quote: “Janene Murphy is funnier than me, and I want to be her. Don’t miss this laugh-out-loud book from this must-read author! READ IT NOW!” - Leslie Langtry When you read this, first you’re thinking, “Leslie really likes hyphens…and I’m pretty sure she abuses commas and exclamation marks.” And you’d be right, but you’d be missing the point. And don’t be MOMS ARE FROM MARS by Janene Murphy, is one of the funniest books I’ve read this year. I loved it so much, I gave the author the following cover quote: “Janene Murphy is funnier than me, and I want to be her. Don’t miss this laugh-out-loud book from this must-read author! READ IT NOW!” - Leslie Langtry When you read this, first you’re thinking, “Leslie really likes hyphens…and I’m pretty sure she abuses commas and exclamation marks.” And you’d be right, but you’d be missing the point. And don’t be put off by the creepy-eyed Blythe doll on the cover – this book is funny. Janene has an amazing blog – MOMS ARE FROM MARS, and this book is the compilation of it. Janene’s blog has tens of thousands of followers in 164 countries and it gives (often sarcastically) advice to teens about their mothers…especially mothers like her (and me) who grew up in the ’70s and ’80s (who are AWESOME!). Janene thinks of things I never would have. Her first chapter, Let There Be Abs, is about the irony she discovers in the teen hotties of today, vs. the teen hotties of…um…our day. She notices that Taylor Lautner, Justin Bieber and others, all have six pack abs. And then she remembers the posters we had on our walls…you remember…Sean Cassidy, Leif Garrett and others, shirtless with pale, pasty, hairless flesh, no abs and in many cases – concave chests. That’s right, that was sexy back in the day. I have no idea why, but it was. Give us a break…we’re old and can’t remember things like we used to. From photos of egg yolks shaped like derrieres, to miracles wrought by her Action Figure Jesus, Janene had me laughing throughout her wonderful book. I highly recommend it if you are a teenage girl, a mom, a teenage girl with a mom, grew up in the ’70′s and made your own pair of gauchos from a Butterick pattern…the list goes on and on. Check out MOMS ARE FROM MARS, by Janene Murphy! I promise you’ll laugh! (Disclaimer: Leslie Langtry can’t really promise you’ll laugh because she doesn’t know anything about you and you might, in fact, have no sense of humor. If you do have a sense of humor – please disregard.)

    I must disclose that I was fortunate enough to be a recipient of this book via Giveaways! Thank you very much! The book came with a personal inscribed note from the author, which was lovely, as well as a sticky note on front wishing me enjoyment in reading her book. I thought these were lovely touches and appreciated the time she took and effort she made in connecting with me. I was not aware that this author had a blog when I signed up for the Giveaways.

The book came with a personal inscribed note from the author, which was lovely, as well as a sticky note on front wishing me enjoyment in reading her book. I thought these were lovely touches and appreciated the time she took and effort she made in connecting with me. I was not aware that this author had a blog when I signed up for the Giveaways. I was intrigued by the title of the book which brought on the realization, "Oh, thank the stars, I am not alone." I enjoyed the author's writing style from the get-go; very, "train of consciousness", as if you were listening to a friend speak. It made the experience of the book feel comfortable and warm, as if the author was an old friend you were catching up with after some time apart. The author writes about content that, I believe, most moms and wives can relate to. Single women would probably enjoy reading it to laugh at us and delight in the fact they don't have to go through what we do. In short, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Ms. Murphy demonstrates quite a skill for finding humor in everyday, run-of-the-mill circumstances. "Bored Games" was one such section. Most of us, with children, have been in the position of playing kids games ad nauseum with our children. Ms. Murphy eloquently puts into words what all, but the most saintly among us, has thought during those repetitive times. In all fairness, Ms. Murphy does not only put her children and family out on the front porch for all to see, she does a good job of exposing herself as well. The time she began her criminal lifestyle with a rubber ball is of particular interest as a lesson in stealing and should probably be reported to the authorities for her own good. What makes Ms. Murphy's humor so effective is that it is real. She talks about real life instances that we can relate to and appreciate. Her use of photographs enhances her writing and adds to the warm, comfortable, friendly, feeling I mentioned before. I enjoyed her book and will be checking out her blog as well.

    One of my favorite parts was when she said "Be warned. All those annoying children's programs, music, and toys will dominate your life. Forget Pretty Little Liars. You're on the Yo Gabba Gabba bandwagon now." I remember thinking "more like the Dragon Tales and Curious George bandwagon." for more on my review go to my blog: http://brunettedarlingbookreview.blog...

    Particularly enjoyed the action figure Jesus miracles as well as the "if you give a teen a tattoo." Also a good reminder that I don't want kids as soon as I think.
