Not Ready for Mom Jeans

A book by Maureen Lipinski

< read all 1 reviews

Very funny

  • Aug 8, 2010
Firstly, I have to say that I loved the cover of this one! Not Ready for Mom Jeans is a wonderful addition to the chick lit genre - my favorite!

In this sequel, we find the main character NOW having to deal with all things related to being a new mom - which includes trying to get back to work, being away from her baby and, of course, the entire body image issue.

The novel is funny - very funny and I love that the author manages to take a subject that could be somewhat *sensitive* and manages to make it entertaining and downright funny.

I have never had children, but I have to say that as I was reading this book, I actually felt as though I was living through the author's eyes - experiencing the joys and angst of being a new mom - trying to make it all fit and being all things to all people.

Wonderful read.

About this book


Young working mothers will relate to Lipinski's (A Bump in the Road) amusing but unsurprising latest. Chicago events planner, popular blogger (Am I Making Myself Clare), and newspaper writer Clare Finnegan dons her black Miss Piggy pants (baby weight!) to return to work after having adorable Sara with cute hubby, Jake. She almost loses her cool when an ex-college flame hires her to plan a society golf function. Clare's also worrying about her friend Reese divorcing husband Matt; her mother battling breast cancer; and the commitment of buying a house. It's all there, but Clare's life via Lipinski's jittery prose reads more like a journal of teenage blog posts than an adult novel. Although it captures the angst of the almost-30 mom finding her way, the manic glee is just too self-aware and giddy (...This Day Needs to Come to Life So I Can Painfully Kill It).(May)
