Review: ‘Diary of a Menopausal Woman’ by Cheryl Reid

I was asked to read this Kindle book as a favour to a friend and what a joy it was to read!

Cheryl Reid is a poet over at Close to the Bone ( and has only recently announced herself as a writer. Cheryl started out as a humourous poet before branching out into publishing her diary.

Imagine Bridget Jones as a fifty-four year old single mother who writes poetry. That’s Cheryl in a nutshell. The diary not only contains funny anecdotes about her life as a dog owner, chocoholic and woman. The lovely thing about this easy-to-read Kindle e-book is that it is real life and it really tugs at the heart-strings.

This account of single life at middle age in a credit crunch is really honest and funny. It’s a real joy to read. Well done Cheryl!

  1. This is my first ever review of my first ever book. I was so overwhelmed, emotional and hormonal that I just burst into tears. It is just so lovely.

    My name is Cheryl and I am a writer!

    Thanks Vic x
