#BookReview Babyland by Holly Chamberlin

Babyland by Holly Chamberlin felt like a soap opera of emotions!

I’m in this weird adult phase where I feel like an adult and want to think about marriage and babies but also feel like a child still (college does that to you, I hear). Picking this book up was part of my ‘I’m an adult who likes babies and marriage and soap operas’ phase. I have to say, it didn’t disappoint on what I wanted it to deliver.

I nabbed this book as a discount book store and I was stoked. I love getting books from random authors I’ve never heard of and I love sales. After reading the reviews for this book, I figured I needed to go in expecting a dramatic ride full of babies and girl gossip, and it delivered on that front!

I have to say, I really enjoyed this book! I wanted exactly what it delivered on and I couldn’t ask for much more. I want to read more by Holly Chamberlin because she does have her own style, and I dig it.

Anna is married to Ross (think Ross from friends) and they decided they aren’t going to have children. Then, TA DA!, she gets pregnant. The drama coming from this event, plus his family being rich, stereotypical jerks and her questioning her life brings out my inner soap opera addict. It’s full of silly drama, insane gossip and twists you can probably guess if you’ve ever watched a soap opera. Will she stay with Ross? Will she want another baby? Duh, duh duhhhhhhh. There’s lots of questions and this book doesn’t end up answering half of mine, but I still liked it.

My negatives for this book was that it felt a little too long and that I didn’t get to see the final happy ending shot of Anna and her man. I really wanted to hear about the happily ever after, but I didn’t. Oh well.

Overall, I liked this book. It was a nice change and it was easy to read. I was able to binge this book within a couple hours even though it’s so long, but that’s because Holly knows how to write a good book that’s easy to read.

Three out of five stars.
