My Best Mistake by Carole Wolfe BLOG TOUR @CaroleW30064418 @BOTBSPublicity #MyBestMistake #MyLifeInBooks

A lawsuit, an ex-husband, and a hotel full of men. Just another crazy day in the life of a single mom…
Tasha Gerome tries to find the funny side of her everyday disasters. It’s just about the only thing that gets the single mother of twins through her chaotic life. Well, that and a comfy pair of piggy slippers. But not everyone appreciates her brand of humor…
Her deadbeat ex-husband certainly doesn’t get her jokes as he returns to town to bother her and the twins. A well-known doctor threatens her with legal action over a misunderstanding. And her mother is more concerned with Tasha’s single status than her humor, dragging her kicking and screaming back into the dating game…
One thing is for certain. Fixing her legal troubles, getting rid of her ex, and finding a new man will take a whole lot of laughter… and a little help from her family…
My Best Mistake is a down-to-earth women’s fiction novel that celebrates a single mother’s courage and comedy. If you like sweet romance, snarky humor, and characters who tell it like it is, then you’ll love Carole Wolfe’s hilarious tale. 
Buy My Best Mistake for a funny look into the madness of motherhood today!

My Best Mistake by Carole Wolfe was published in June this year. As part of the Blog Tour organised by Sarah from Book On The Bright Side Publicity, I'm delighted to welcome the author here to Random Things today. She's talking about the books that are special to her, in My Life In Books.

My Life In Books - Carole Wolfe

Oh, the Places You’ll Go – Dr.Seuss – I received several copies of this book for my high school andcollege graduations. I grew up with Dr. Seuss so it was fun to have a relevant children’s book to see me into adulthood. There is a line in the book “Alone will be something you’ll be quite a lot,” that really speaks to me as a writer. Writing is something you have to do alone and sometimes it is hard. But I give it my all and keep moving forward as the story says.

The Outsiders – SE Hinton – I read this book in middle school and it has stuck with me ever since. Obviously, life isn’t fair. There are haves and have nots. What really gets me now though is that SE Hinton wrote this when she was 16 years old. That’s amazing for someone so young to understand and articulate what some adults still don’t recognize.

The Raven - Edgar Allen Poe – I know it isn’t a book, but I had to include this poem. My 8th grade English teacher loved all things Poe and we spent weeks and weeks reading and discussing the meaning in Poe’s poems. This was the one that stood out the most to me, that I re-read when the mood strikes.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – JK Rowling – I’m sure everyone probably has a Harry Potter book on their list, but probably not for this reason. After my twins were born, they woke up every morning at 2 for a feeding. I multitasked and read this book while they ate their middle of the night snack. Being able to read something that everyone else was talking about helped me keep connected and sane during those first few crazy months of parenthood.  

Brides on the Run Series (4books – Book 1 Running from a Rock Star is my favorite.) - Jami Albright – Not only are these romantic comedies a fun read, the author Jami Albright is the first independently-published author I met who helped me on my own journey. To be able to get to know the person behind the author is something I value, and I admire Jami for what she has accomplished in a short period of time.

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry– Gabrielle Zevin – This is a book about books and what they mean to people. From the beginning of the story, the reader knows how things will end, but the story in between is so powerful. It is a bit quirky and may not be for everyone, but I really enjoyed it.

Little Fires Everywhere -Celeste Ng – I love this story’s twisting, intertwined plot lines. It examines the dynamics of the Richardson family and how members of the same family can be so different. Not only did I enjoy this as a reader, I also appreciate how the author connected the many story lines between characters and showed how there is no black and white in life. It’s all shades of gray.

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine– Gail Honeyman – I enjoy reading books set in other countries (I am based in the United States). I like learning about other cultures. Not only did the book give me a glimpse into the UK, it also provided a wonderful characterization of how people deal with tragedy. I was surprised by the turn of events, which is why I think I appreciated this book so much.

Carole Wolfe started telling stories in the third grade and hasn’t stopped since. While she no longer illustrates her stories with crayon, Carole still uses her words to help readers escape the daily hiccups of life. Her debut novel, The Best Mistake, follows a single mom as she stumbles through one mishap after another.
When Carole isn’t writing, she is a stay-at-home mom to three busy kiddos, a traveling husband and a dog that thinks she is a cat. Carole enjoys running at a leisurely pace, crocheting baby blankets for others and drinking wine when she can find the time. She and her family live in Texas.
