Since launching This Mom Loves: The Podcast in October 2018, I’ve saved my best book recommendations to share on the show. Right now, though, the podcast is on hiatus and I’ve been devouring books…and I just think it’s a real disservice to all of you if I keep all of my favourite titles to myself! Please see below for a selection of books that I would highly recommend you check out – click titles for more information or to purchase.

I also want to cordially invite you to consider joining the This Mom Loves Virtual Book Club on Facebook. We read a book each month and you can comment on the online discussion questions as much or as little as you want! It’s an amazing community (more than 70 women) of various ages and from different places. We would love to have you! Our June and July picks can be found below, and the as-yet-unannounced August title is somewhere on the list as well!

{Please note that if you do plan to order any of these books from Chapters, using my affiliate links below helps to keep me stocked in reading material that I can then recommend…or not! Thanks in advance!}
