Fun Books

For some time I’ve been a fan of Canadian author Rebecca Eckler. I first discovered her when I read her debut novel – Knocked Up: Confessions of a Hip Mother-to-Be.  It is witty, laugh out loud funny – and real – since it is her own story.   I must admit some of the reviews I read for it were poor – but I thought it was great – perhaps because I was never pregnant.

Now I’m on to her second book Wiped: Life With a Pint Sized Dictator.  It is just way too funny – even though I can’t relate to the parts about having an infant – I laugh at imagining my friends in those situations.  But now I’m into the 12-15 month stages and I can totally relate to her situations (well most of them – I didn’t get to go to Miami for 2 months to decompress). 

She also has another book called Toddlers Gone Wild!: Rants from a Mommy Brain that is on my list to read next. 

Eckler also writes for the National Post Lifestyle section and has had many articles in various magazines.

  1. Thanks for the recommendations, Krista. I am now reading Wiped and loving it so far. I had read Knocked Up a few years ago, and didn’t even realize that Rebecca Eckler had any new novels.
