Favorite book(s) of the month: Wilde About The Girl


Books started this month but haven't finished yet: Harry Potter, Moxie


Apparently the less books I read, the more time I need to actually post my wrap up. When it comes to reading this year, I just feel off. I love reading, I read all the time, but I don't finish any books and it's driving me up the wall. I mean I'm still one/two books ahead on my reading challenge, so I'm not THAT bad, but it still bothers me a lot.

Wilde About the Girl!!!
Wilde About The Girl - Louise Pentland

The first book 'Wilde Like Me' was one of my favorite books last year. Yes, it even got a spot on y end of year wrap up. So I was excited when the second book was announced and even more excited when we could preorder it and i was OVER THE MOON when I finally had it in my hands and pushed all the other books back, just so I could read it right away.


Summary: Robin Wilde is acing life.

After the year from hell, she's pulled herself up and out of the Emptiness, her love life is ticking along nicely, single motherhood is actually quite fun and she is ready for whatever life throws at her. When a thrilling opportunity at work arises, Robin is more than excited to step up and show everyone, including herself, what she's made of.

But her best friend Lacey is increasingly broken-hearted about struggling to conceive, and her daughter Lyla is starting to come out with some horrible attitudes she's learning from someone at school. Is Auntie Kath hiding loneliness under her bubbly, loving veneer? And can Robin definitely trust the people she must depend on in her fab new role?

But Robin has her girls. And her girls have got her. Together they can handle any crisis. Can't they?

Life is about to throw quite the curve ball at Robin Wilde, and she'll need to make some pretty brave choices if she's going to stop everything she cares about falling apart . . .


I love Robin Wilde so damn much. She has become my everything. I love her strength, I love her world views, I love everything about her. I love her little one Lyla. I love all the girls around her. Seriously, something that I loved in the first book and that I enjoyed even more in this book, was the girl power in the story. There are so many amazing and strong women in this story. So many different ladies who all have their backs. Of course there are moments they don't get along, I had some serious pain in my heart through some of the Robin and Lacey moments but at the end, everyone is supporting each other and I love it so DAMN MUCH.


Robin went through some serious ups and downs in this story, and I felt every emotion with her. I laughed with her, I cried with her and I felt my heart breaking with her, but I also felt every happy emotion with her. Have I mentioned that Robin Wilde is my everything at this point? I seriously feel like she is one of my best friends and I want all the good things happen to her.


Something that I loved in the first book aswell, that got even better in this book, was Louise's writing. While reading I could hear her voice telling me the story of Robin. She tackled some serious topics in this second book and she did it amazingly, she broke my heart and fixed it again.


There has to be a third book. I think the book ended in a good way to end the whole thing but I'm not ready to say goodbye to all these characters yet. I need to have more Robin in my life. And I seriously wanna see her and Edward as a couple. I just love these two so much.

Wilde Like Me!!!
Wilde Like Me - Louise Pentland

A book from a Youtuber. OH NO!!!! (I love them, well the ones I read so far.)

I'm watching Louise for a few years now and really love her videos. This didn't influence my opinion about the book, tho.


Summary: Meet Robin Wilde! You'll make a friend for life and she'll take you on a journey you'll never forget ...

Single mum Robin Wilde adores her six-year-old daughter and loves her job as a make up artist's assistant. She has a wonderful best friend and an auntie who is bonkers, yes, but loves her to the moon and back.

But Robin has a secret. Behind the mask she carefully applies every day, things just feel ... grey. And lonely. She struggles to fit in with the school mum crew. Online dating is totally despair-inducing, and she worries every day about raising her little girl with self-confidence, courage and joy.

What Robin longs for is someone (over the age of six) to share with - someone who's always on her team.

After 4 years (2 months, and 15 days!) of single-mum-dom, it's time for Robin Wilde to Change. Her. Life.

Exciting new opportunities are about to come Robin's way ... Perhaps a man, perhaps the chance of a lifetime ...

What will Robin do with the possibilities she creates for herself? And what potential will she unlock if she takes the leap?


Right from the first page, I knew that this book would be exactly what I thought it would be and it was amazing. The writing was so wonderful, so funny, so heartfelt, so Louise. Seriously, sometimes while reading I could hear her voice in my head, telling me the story.


I loved the story itself. It really showed all the ups and downs in life. It didn't sugar coat anything. Sometimes life sucks and you let it get you down for a bit, but then you have to get back up and move on. I loved Robin's journey through this whole book, how in the beginning she was on the look out for someone else to come in and fix things and how through out the book she found herself and found out that she was and will always be able to fix shit for herself.


I loved the characters. I loved Robin and her little girl Lyla. I loved how female driven this book was. We have so many wonderful and different woman in this book. I love the different relationships Robin has with all of them. Women supporting each other through all the ups and downs in ones life. I LOVED IT.


The book had a really good ending and would have been fine as a stand alone. But knowing, that there will be a second book, I can't wait to get back to these characters again. Cause even though, Robin and Lyla are a amazing team on their own, I kinda wanna see how things turn out with Edward (and hopefully he won't turn out to be a second Theo, can I just say how much I hated this guy and how much he deserved a good punch in the face).
