Another Book...

BABY PROOF by Emily Giffin

This is the first book of Emily's I've read and when I read an excerpt online, I thought it sounded pretty good and somehow with a little luck I ended up with an ARC, which didn't disappoint.

BABY PROOF is about Claudia (and Ben). They meet on a blind date and things are great from the start. They both don't want children, something that Claudia's been firm on since she was a teenager (there's a few mentions of her high school boyfriend asking her about her future at prom and she says no kids...) But when a few years go by and a friend of their's who had the same plan, suddenly ends up with a baby of her own, well now Ben's beginning to think adding a baby to their family might not be a bad idea either. Except Claudia's dead set on never having a baby, which ultimately causes her to leave Ben (don't worry I'm not spoiling anything, all this happens before the midway of the book! hehe)

I really enjoyed this one. Not your typical chick-lit (if that even exists anymore?) with real life characters. There's a good bond between Claudia and her family who fill out some of the supporting cast, along with her best friend Jess.

I do believe its out today!

I loved SOMETHING BORROWED and SOMETHING BLUE. Emily's a really fun reader. :) Lucky you for getting the ARC!

Those 2 are definitely added to my TBB list after baby proof. They look really fun.

I've read "Something Blue" and I did enjoy it, so I will have to look out for this when it gets released over here.

I'll have to find something blue. It looks really good in the excerpts I've seen of it.

Welks :o) Happy to link to you!
