The Unmumsy Mum has done it again! We were delighted to see over the weekend that the brilliant The Unmumsy A-Z stormed into The Sunday Times bestseller list at number 10. The frank and funny guide to parenting is the third title by Sarah Turner to hit the bestseller charts, with The Unmumsy Mum reaching the top spot after it’s paperback release. The Unmumsy A-Z was published by Transworld on 19th September 2019.
From bestselling author and massively popular blogger The Unmumsy Mum comes this hilarious, irreverent and searingly candid compendium of parenting experiences. With entries including D is for Desperation, F is for Fish Fingers, S is for Supermum and V is for Vagina, it’s safe to say this is not your average A-Z.
This book won’t tell you what sort of parent you should (or shouldn’t) be; instead, it offers a refreshingly honest account of what being a mum to three young children is really like and the surprising lessons that have been learned along the way.
If you feel as though you’re not ‘measuring up’ or are struggling to #cherisheverymoment, Sarah’s tales from the thick of it will reassure and resonate with you. Above all, her commitment to telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth will make you laugh out loud and remind you that you are, in fact, doing a great job.
Sarah Turner lives in Devon with her husband and their three boys. She started writing as The Unmumsy Mum after becoming disillusioned with the other parenting literature she had read online. Everybody seemed to be coping so well! Where were the tales of mums tearing their hair out after yet another sleepless night and endless re-runs of Peppa Pig? Surely there were others out there who were trying but ultimately failing to live up to the Supermum ideal they’d bought into? She made a vow then and there to document the good, the bad and the ugly of parenting and her blog (www.theunmumsymum.co.uk) was born. The Unmumsy Mum was voted number 4 in Amazon’s Top 10 books of 2016 (as voted by Amazon customers) and was also shortlisted for Book of the Year (non fiction, lifestyle) at the 2017 British Book Awards.
