A Writer's Review of “Mom's Night Out” ~ The Two Books and the Movie

{My Review of Mom's Night Out}

I love a good movie, and I love when there's a book to go along with it. And I have to admit, I watched the movie first. I couldn't help it! It looked so good--and since I've recently entered the world of "motherhood", I was super excited about seeing it. This will be my life for the next twenty years??? Yes!!!! But, boy do I love my new little boy! He is worth it! 

Apart from being base on a great movie, this was a great book! Tricia Goyer has a reputation in the Christian publishing market (CBA) for writing best-selling novels of a few different genres. She did an amazing job taking the story from the screen to the page.
{About the Book}

Moms' Night Out is a novelization of the hilarious family comedy that celebrates real family life--where everything can go wrong and still turn out all right. 

All Allyson and her friends want is a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation . . . a long-needed moms' night out. But in order to enjoy high heels, adult conversation and food not served in a bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for a few hours-what could go wrong?

Chronicling one night out gone awry, three harried moms, their husbands, a sister-in-law with a misplaced baby, a tattoo parlor owner, a motorcycle gang, and a bewildered cabbie all learn to embrace the beautiful mess called parenting. This book spotlights the unfulfilled expectations and serial self-doubts many moms feel . . . then reassures us that the key is raising kids in a loving home. Mom's Night Out is an endearing, true-to-life comedy.

{My Review of Moms' Night Out and Other Things I Miss . . .} 

This was also a very good book! I'm not quite to the point of having as many of the mommy-issues as someone who has multiple, or older children--but I know from the two and a half months that I have been a mom that it's hard work! And amidst the chaos and busyness of being a mom, we need to STOP and recoup. This was a very nice devotional to go along with the novel and movie.
