Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sweet Dream Book for Adults This is a Sweet Dream romance book for adults.  Not too much substance or plot other than just general characters talking and interacting.  Skip this book.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could have been better I liked this book for what it was. It's the kind of book that doesn't make you think. You just read it and you can kind of predict what's going to happen. In the first section of the book, I had a hard time getting into it. It was difficult believing that the main character was only 25 years old. As the book went on and she aged, it was begining to get more believable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun and Light-Hearted Nothing much to this book, it's chick-lit so don't expect anything less. But it was a nice filler in between heavier books so it did it's job. It was entertaining for sure, I liked how the author would skip a few years in each part of the book, it allowed for character movement as the main character's daughter grew up (from 4-16 throughout). Defintely a brain-candy kind of book.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Rebecca Eckler“Wiped! is a hilarious, shockingly honest, terrifyingly accurate, profanity-laced look at what happens after a bundle of joy comes home and takes over.“ -The Chronicle Herald“Eckler’s frankness, quirky style and light touch are a winning combination.“ -Kirkus Reviews“A downtown girl attempts a stylish switch to yummy mummy. There appears to be no detail she’s reluctant to share. This isn’t supposed to be a parenting manual; it’s meant to be a funny, lighthearted take on a life in transition.“-The Toronto Star“This mommy memoir feels like a humorous crash course in maturity.“-Publishers Weekly“Knocked Up is a refreshingly funny chronicle of nine months of pregnant angst and wonder. This is a ‘mumoir’ that gives the Bridget Jones treatment to every bloated day of that nine months.“-The Calgary Herald
