"The wedding Diaries" was not a hit with me but I thought I will give a go to "The Baby Diaries". Since I have a baby myself I love reading about pregnancies, even if it is fiction. I must say, I really liked this book. It was really good to read about other person who felt almost exactly like I did, who felt scared, then excited, then scared again. It had me nodding along with agreement because I could sympathise with the Kiki and the way she feeling, I could share the birth stories and I could envy Kiki how easy her birth was. And I totally knew how it is when the hormones are taking us into their possession. This time I loved Kiki, she was much more mature than in the first book, and the conversations between her and Thom were brilliant! He was perfect, and it was really nice to read that he is not afraid to tell how he is feeling in this whole situation.
What I loved in the book is the fact that Sam Binnie has treated the pregnancy with such a humour, not serious: "I am going to be a MOTHER, I am PREGNANT, I am the most important person in the world, and my pregnancy is the one and only" approach. Thanks for that! It was a roller coaster of feelings: ecstasy, doubts, angst about the future. I think that this made the book so real for me, and I think that in reality all the moms - to - be feel like that.
What disturbed me in the whole reading is the part after the baby was born. I'd like to have such a nice and already well - bred baby. Baby that is sleeping soundless, that cries only when it's hungry and stinks only occasionally, ie. when you are going out. And not after every feeding.Read more ›
Soon after the honeymoon Kiki has a strange feeling something is missing. Yes, her time of the month has not arrived.
A positive pregnancy test confirms that Kiki and Thom are about to begin an new journey into parenthood.
In diary style, this novel will have you laughing out loud. If you are already a parent new or otherwise you will be nodding
and chuckling at some of those, only parents understand, moments. If you are thinking of becoming a parent this will
give you a taste of what is to come.
It is 5 years since I was pregnant last but this was such a fabulous funny read. Very entertaining.
Thank you to Avon for a review copy. This did not influence my review in any way
Kiki and Thom have just returned home from their honeymoon and are struggling to get back into the swing of everyday life but Kiki has this niggling feeling that she's forgotten something... and it soon dawns on her what it is... she might be pregnant!
Once they've gotten over the initial shock of being pregnant so soon in their married life, Kiki and Thom start to look forward to their new life together as a family even if it is a completely daunting prospect.
Kiki chronicles her pregnancy through her diaries which made for some very entertaining reading... at times I couldn't help but laugh out loud at some of the situations but at other times I was cringing at what I was reading.
I have to confess I wasn't sure how I was going to get on with this book not being a parent myself but I needn't have worried as there weren't any really graphic details in there about pregnancy or the birth itself... infact I've heard more graphic tales from friends who have had kids!
Although Kiki and Thom are the main characters we do also get to meet an interesting mix of other characters including Kiki's family, her workmates & clients, their friends as well as other couples from their ante-natal group but I have to say that Thom was my out and out favourite character in this book... why can't I meet someone like him!
As I understand it there is a third part to come of Kiki and Thom's story so I'm definitely looking forward to reading this to see what the future has in store for them now that they've encountered two of the major events that could happen in their lives... getting married and having a baby.
