    I liked this book. It had some good information. The breakdown was kind of jumbled...i think it would probably make more sense to read the hard copy as i felt like there were a lot of footnotes and charts that had to be explained. The narrator was kind of annoying as well, but I started to warm up to her as the book went on.

    From the experience of her own difficult pregnancy, MTV star Jenny McCarthy has fashioned the best-selling pregnancy/childbirth book of the last several decades. A delightful mixture of raw humor and serious advice, Belly Laughs tells you what you can really expect when you're expecting. Every imaginable topic related to pregnancy is covered, including whole chapters on morning sickness ("Barf-O-Rama"), cellulite gain, baby kicks, dreams, water retention, hot flashes, and more.

    This book is absolutely hilarious. It's a light and easy listen. I was 5 months pregnant when I read this and it was so refreshing to read and relate to such an humorous and honest depiction of what us ladies have to go though.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    This was the first book that I purchased on Audible and it is by far the best one that I have listened to. The narrators are fantastic. The story and character development kept me hooked. Do not hesitate to listen to this book!

    To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it's not enough...not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, but what she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

    The narrator was so completely distracting and annoying that I could not get past the first few chapters. Unfortunate, because I have heard a lot of great things about people who have read this book. I might try and pick it up and read a hard copy.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    Let me start off by saying that I did enjoy listening to this book, however, I felt as though there was something off about the story the entire time. I was not a fan of the the way the characters "spoke"...to me the way they talked and the way the reader portrayed the voices did not seem realistic. I am not sure if this was simply because of the performance, or if it was because of the way it was written. I also felt the character development to be slightly shallow and because of this, I did not develop an emotional connection with the characters and relationships.

  • Bringing Up Bebe: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting

    The secret behind France's astonishingly well-behaved children is here. When American journalist Pamela Druckerman has a baby in Paris, she doesn't aspire to become a "French parent". French parenting isn't a known thing, like French fashion or French cheese. Even French parents themselves insist they aren't doing anything special. But French children are far better behaved and more in command of themselves than American kids....

    I fully enjoyed listening to this book. As a mother to be, I love to insightful approach to parenting that this book portrays. Although I would not call this a personal parenting bible, I did grasp onto some very interesting ideas that I will definitely use when raising my own children. I especially appreciate the approach that "French Parenting" takes towards patience and food.
