Review of The Stork Reality by Malena Lott

Synopsis: "Some big surprises start small.

What to expect when you’re expecting? For a career-driven couple that didn’t plan on having children, it’s a nine-month roller coaster ride.

Creative director Taylor Montgomery gets the surprise of her life when she finds out she’s pregnant the same day her best friend, Hilarie, finds out she’s not. Taylor never wanted to be a mom, but it’s all Hilarie has dreamed about. The Stork Reality: Secrets from the Underbelly updates the original novel about the journey to motherhood and how pregnancy changes marriage, work, and even close friendships.

Taylor experiences the stork reality as she maneuvers the wild new world of moms-to-be and comes to terms with what it means to be a family.

This humorous, poignant novel will appeal to women and moms in all stages and celebrates that no two pregnancies, moms or approaches to motherhood are the same."

My Review: I didn't enjoy this one as much as I expected, normally I love what Lott puts out there. Maybe because I definitely over the being pregnant and baby thing. I felt like this book did a lot of rambling with not much of an end point. I didn't connect with the main characters but did enjoy Allen, I felt like he was the only one that had a personality. I did like how she portrayed the fact that a woman's life doesn't have to end after having a baby like is often believed and pushed. Maybe this book will give some hope to someone who is just discovered they are expecting, but it just didn't work for me.
My Rating: I was so sad not to have enjoyed this one. I really wanted to but it just lacked an emotional connection for me.  I give it a rating of Two Paws.
