Not Invisible: A Memoir by Frances Sales Book Review
When I heard that Frances Sales of the blog topazhorizon.com, one of my fave writers/bloggers since I started blogging released a book called Not Invisible: A Memoir, I really got excited to have my hands on it.
You can get it as an e-book on Amazon, but I wanted a hard copy so I waited for her to have the actual book (I want a signed copy and I like the smell of a new book that’s why).
I am excited to read Frances book because I am a fan of her writing and the way she tells a story. She’s not afraid to say what’s on her mind (not everyone can do that), she is also bubbly and relatable.
Even before she had her 3 cute little babies, I am already reading her blog. I know her husband, her bunnies, I even bought a Real Living mag because her condo was featured in it. Yes! I am that fanatic hahaha.
I was surprised when she got pregnant because I knew that she doesn’t want to have kids before (you’ll read why in the book).
When she became a mom and a mommy blogger, I got a chance to meet her in person at Shangri-La Mall. Both of us plus another mom (hi KayeF) was chosen as bloggers/influencers of a client (sorry forgot the brand na). She was with her husband and her firstborn Vito at that time. I got star-struck, really! It’s the first time I heard her voice and I just want to listen to her talking.
Back to her book, I love it!!!! I can finish it in one sitting, but I chose not to kasi gusto kong namnamin hahahaha.
Not Invisible made me laugh and cry. Ang dami kong “aha! oh yes! I know right!” moments. I can relate with her home set-up since my husband and I are both staying/working at home and we don’t have any helpers too. It’s just that my family is smaller than her since she has 3 lovely boys, while I only have one.
I am pretty sure besides me, a lot of moms out there can relate to this book and will learn a thing or two from Frances.
I idolized her because she shows that she is not perfect just like me and still learning along the way, and that’s normal and okay.
What’s important is that moms should realize that we are not invisible.
