Book Review Thursday

On a Kindle store recommendation, based on my purchase of "Belly Laughs" by Jenny McCarthy, I downloaded "Taboo Secrets of Pregnancy: A Guide to Love with a Belly". Sadly, this was probably my least favorite Kindle rec ever.

The book is written by Michelle Smith MS, SLP and Leslie Fossen, and while it proves to show an interesting point of view with one of the authors being pregnant for the second time as she was writing the book, I found it to seem like a much less funny version of McCarthy's book. And not one I will probably read again. I found that the book tried to mix factual information with humor...and that it wasn't the best mix out there. In reading this book I decided it would have been better to read "Belly Laughs" over and supplement with a day-by-day pregnancy book I had received as a gift. That combination was easily more informative, and much more hilarious than "Taboo Secrets".

I never really like to give any book a poor review, but this one I have to say, was just not worth the $7 Amazon charged for it.
