(CLOSED) Stepmonster Book Giveaway

Some of you may know but my egg donor (that would be the woman who gave birth to me but didn't do a thing for me) left when I was very young. I haven't seen her since the one visitation visit I had when I was 9. My father remarried when I was around this same age. The woman who I call mom is just that my mom not my stepmother but my mom.

NOW it has not always been peaches and cream between the two of us, when I was younger I did often refer to her as the stepmonster. And when I first moved out it was several years before I became part of the family once again. As the story goes it's a two way street and two different people come from different situations and different worlds leading to many disagreements and different thinking styles. I'm very happy to say now at 33 I love her dearly and we have a pretty good relation. Heck she's still mom so it's not perfect but it's realistic :).

Today I bring you a wonderful book Stepmonster: A New Look at Why Real Stepmothers Think, Feel, and Act the Way We Dofamily Book Review: Stepmonster. I think Wednesday Martin did a wonderful job of writing a real story of her own experience of being a stepmother along with the help of others in the same situation. Did you know that half the woman in the U.S. will either live with or marry a man with children! You're chance of being a stepmother are pretty high. Read and learn about the myths the truth and helpful tips to survive!

You'll truly enjoy this book even if you're not a stepmom or stepmonster, it's a great read and can help many with it's insight and a fresh way of thinking! Thank you to FSB Media Book for another wonderful book that hit close to home and touched my heart!

  1. Yep I became a step Mom at the age of 23. I went from having one of my own to having 4 full time. I went through rough times learning how to be a parent to so many kids. I read many books for advice. Now I say they are all mine or that we have a blended family if anyone wants to pry on the kid deal.

  4. I had a step-mom for many years before she passed way. Although we tolerated each other, we did not like each other. I have been a step-mother for 7 years now. We've had our ups and downs. I love all three of them quite dearly and hope that I'm the opposite of what my step-mom was to me.

  27. I became a Stepmom at 21, and for the first few years it was great! Then, the madness happened,she became a teen, and I'm only now beginning to see that I was NOT the horrible stepmom I was portrayed as...I only wanted what was best for her!
    It's been rough, but I think this book would be a great read!

  43. I'm not a stepmom nor do I have one. The only story I can think of is Cinderella, but I'm sure you've heard that one before.
