Book Review – How Not To Be A Loser by Beth Moran @bethcmoran @BoldwoodBooks #BookReview #BlogTour #contemporary

Many thanks to publisher Boldwood Books for my spot on this Blog Tour.

A beautiful book which encapsulated a mother’s love for her child and her determination and need to prove that she was not a loser. Author Beth Moran had written a story which was both heart capturing and inspiring. A perfect way to smile through the tears knowing they were happy ones.

Amy had become an agoraphobic. She wasn’t so 14 years ago. But life and circumstances… Haven’t we all seen it and gone through it? But now she had to be strong for son Joey, so she joined the running group led by a hottie…

My first book by this tremendously talented author, I was stuck to my kindle cheering Amy on as she put one foot in front of the other. I could feel her struggles at every moment and battle with her mental health. Like a beacon of light, her love for her son shone through. I was so proud of her with each of her successes. She was amazing.

This was a book of feels where determination, second chances, and acceptance were teh crux of the story. A step which seemed so easy to others was a monumental task for Amy, and I loved how the author portrayed her. She was never a loser in my eyes, and a winner she proved to the whole world.

Relationships and friendships emerged soon with the other characters who made it come alive. Humor and fun along with empathy and sensitivity added a different depth to the story. A book I identified with as I had turned slightly agoraphobic, and it took the support of my friends to make me start going out.(Though today, I consider agoraphobia a blessing when lockdown is a must.)

A brilliant heart warming book which made me laugh and cry, cheer and support Amy on her emotional journey, facing the tough times, then getting up to stand strong.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

Amy Piper is a loser. She’s lost her confidence, her mojo and her way.
But one thing she has never lost is her total love for her thirteen-year-old son Joey, and for his sake she knows it’s time for a change. But first she has to be brave enough to leave the house…

What she needs are friends and an adventure. And when she joins a running group of women who call themselves The Larks, she finds both. Not to mention their inspiring (and rather handsome) coach, Nathan.

Once upon a time Amy was a winner – at life, at sport and in love. Now, with every ounce of strength she has left, she is determined to reclaim the life she had, for herself and for Joey. And who knows, she might just be a winner again – at life, sport, and love, if she looks in the right places…

  1. Agoraphobia is so easy to give into, sticking to the safety and comfort of home to alleviate anxiety – until it becomes a self-made prison. Lovely review!
