Chicken Soup for the Soul - Summer Reading -- for Moms, Stress, & Brides!

I just read 3 Chicken Soup for the Soul books that were REALLY fitting for my life and very timely for what I've been going through in the last year. I've been wed (just celebrated one year a week ago), become a stay-at-home-mom (going on 18 months now!) and have been trying to manage stress (perpetually!) so all 3 of these books were GREAT summer reading for me! I cannot wait to dig into some more of this great series! I had kind of forgotten about them, since the release of Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul II -- back in the nineties maybe? It's been a while, but I'm glad I rekindled my love of reading and am learning a few things along the way!!

You can enjoy them too, here is a bit about the books and where to get 'em! Tell your friends to visit my blog, become part of the Adventures of Mommyhood fun, and the more traffic I get visiting will allow me to do some fun giveaways for these great books, and, the more chances you'll have to win!

Chicken Soup for the Soul - Stay-at-home-moms: 101 Inspirational Stories for Mothers about Hard Work and Happy Families

From the publisher:
With stories by famous moms, and stories from other moms who elected to stay at home or work from home. Every stay-at-home and work-from-home mom will view this book as having been written just for her! This book contains 101 great stories from mothers who have made the choice to stay home or work from home while raising their families. These multi-tasking, high-performing women have become today’s power mom.

I think this would be perfect for book clubs or mommy groups, as it has a reader guide. I know as a stay-at-home-mama myself, I sometimes need a little boost when I'm dealing with the fallout of a tantrum, when I miss the working world, or when I just need to feel a connection to others like me!! This book is great because I can actually read it during naps and downtime--a chapter here and there (as with all the Chicken Soup books!)

You can get your own from Amazon. I recommend it to any mom who wants to read war stories from a large sisterhood (and get away from baby talk for a few minutes!) Enjoy!

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Here Comes the Bride!

From the publisher:

"The wedding day, and each day leading up to it, is a special and exciting time. In this collection of 101 heartwarming and hilarious stories, brides and grooms, families and friends share their memories of the big day. With stories about everything from the proposal, to the planning, to actual wedding day events, the honeymoon, and all the joys and frustrations in between, this book will delight and encourage any bride or newlywed. A great gift for bridal showers, engagements, and weddings!"

As a fresh-from-the-aisle bride, I totally related to this book. It was great to hear about those that had unique engagements, fantastical storybook weddings, embarrassing moments and how they overcame challenges, all relating to "the big day." I think you can enjoy this as a teenager thinking about "Some Day" or as a woman that's been married for 40 years. I thought it was uplifting and energetic and was a quick beach read!
