    1. I absolutely adored this book, however I did feel that it was one of those books that would have benefitted from finishing sooner The last 100 pages were a struggle, in contrast to the rest of the piece which I found delightful I truly connected with the engaging characters, however my interest did begin to dwindle once all of the women had given birth It felt forced, and I felt as though Bratley was struggling to churn out a credible storyline However, overall, I would really recommend this boo [...]


    2. Una lettura veloce e, a tratti divertente, che punto l obiettivo sulla maternit nelle sue paure, nelle ansie ma anche i momenti per cui vale la pena viverla


    3. This book is about five ladies who meet for the first time at an Antenatal class Katy, Lexi, Erin, Rebecca and Mel It tells the story of each lady during pregnancy They all become friends and this is the story of their lives with a baby and how everything happens differently.I really enjoyed this story, there was a lot going on with five different stories but they all come together I loved it


    4. I received this book from a publisher in exchange for a review.To be totally honest about this book I think I wouldn t have been interested in it if I was not pregnant and had a baby myself I was not so much baby obsessed and I guess I wouldn t have liked it as much as I liked it now.Actually no, I loved this book From the very first to the very last page.It is a book about surprise, surprise women that meet at the ante natal classes and stay friends We are taken on a journey through the last we [...]


    5. Le vacanze natalizie, ahim , non sono state molto proficue dal punto di vista delle letture Per sbloccarmi da questa fase di pigrizia mentale ho deciso di dedicarmi ad un romanzo leggerissimo scritto da un autrice che, in passato, avevo trovato assai gradevole Amy Bratley Come si intuisce dalla giovane donna con pancione in copertina il tema che lega le protagoniste del romanzo la gravidanza Arrivate al settimo mese di gravidanza cinque donne, molto diverse tra loro, si ritrovano insieme ad un c [...]


    6. This is the story of five very different women, drawn together only by the proximity of their due dates There s the beautiful young mum with an irresponsible boyfriend the older mum with miscarriage behind her the single thirties woman who went through sperm donor as her last chance to be a mother the busy high powered office worker who seems to have it all sussed and the women whose partner ran off when things began to get difficult.Then, it all gets complicated.Borrowed from a friend, this was [...]


    7. I got into this book right away and couldn t put it down I really looked forward to picking it up at the end of the day and relaxing in the bath or in bed with it My children are older now, but it bought back lots of memories of that special time, when you are expecting your first child and really have no idea how your life is going to change or how you will cope I won t say too much so i don t spoil it, but it had me in tears as well as laughter, and I think all women of any age would love it


    8. Carino e scritto bene, anche se non mi ha entusiasmato Diverse storie che si intrecciano, devo dire con tutti personaggi abbastanza interessanti, ma forse proprio per questo, non riuscivo ad affezionarmi a nessuno in particolare.Naturalmente il tema centrale sono i dubbi che ci poniamo in gravidanza, visti attraverso le diverse problematiche che via via le coppie si trovavano ad affrontare Ma non so n mi ha convinto Lo consiglio si sicuramente leggibile magari non in gravidanza.


    9. Having recently had my first child this book appealed to me didn t disappoint The group, like my own, is made up of women who are united solely by being pregnant the initial bond that provides The friendships forged are true to life, not always easy, but held together by their experiences with their newborns the support they can offer one another I m not sure this book would appeal to anyone who isn t in a similar situation themselves as I found a lot of the enjoyment came from recognising mysel [...]


    10. I Loved this book and despite the editors missing a couple mixed up baby names it was really good.i felt really connected to the characters and their pregnancies were really relatable from when i was pregnant and some of the things i went through would definitely recommend to anyone who s pregnant or had a baby not so sure people who haven t been there would like it as much as it s aimed at people who know what they are feeling with being pregnant.


    11. Amazing book for an expectant mother myself On the other hand if I wasn t pregnant I don t think I would have enjoyed this book as much as there is no actual twister storyline to it come the end I feel like there was something missing from the ending and therefore could of actually ended a lot sooner.


    12. Sar che non sono mamma e non ho mai provato i piacere e dispiacere di gravidanza e maternit ma non ho trovato in questo romanzo molto in grado di appassionarmi e nemmeno le protagoniste sono riuscite a conquistarmi.


    13. The story is focused around four expectant mums who meet at an antenatal group I enjoyed reading about their lives and it brought back memories to me of my own child births and how I coped with being a new mum Well worth reading




    14. Loved it I read it in less than a week and with a 3 year old that s not easy As a parent totally feel the whole female bonding.










    15. Good, light hearted chic lit Currently pregnant so was nice to read something akin to what I m experiencing
