Review: Wilde Like Me by Louise Pentland


It's been a while since I've dedicated a post to a book review, but this particular novel deserved it's own standalone review. Wilde Like Me by Louise Pentland is mummy chic-lit book, all about Robin Wilde and how she steers her way through life as a single mum. There's obviously a lot of reflection of the character Robin from Louise and the personalities of both are very similar, which makes this book as enjoyable to read as it is to watch Louise's videos. 

The story itself has it's warm and bear-like-hug moments with Robin's daughter Lyla and auntie Kath, then there's the complete reversal of feeling like you're not good enough and that you can't get past The Emptiness Robin describes. It's a realistic and truthful representation of being a single mother, navigating a job and getting back on the dating horse. I love how honest and uncensored it is, there's no faffing around with picture perfect families and lives. 

The ending wouldn't be how you expected (no spoilers here!) but I will say there's a life changing experience in New York, which pleases me as it's one of my favourite cities! Louise left the book with room for a prequel and I can't wait to see what Robin gets up to in the future and all of the new stories. 

Have you read Wilde Like Me before? What are you currently reading?

Thanks for reading!
