This is the story of what comes after 'happily ever after' as three young wives make the journey into motherhood, and discover how it changes their sense of themselves and their relationships with friends and family. There's Becky, a plump, sexy chef, with an overworked husband, an adorable baby girl...and the mother-in-law from hell. There's Kelly, an event planner who's trying to cram sixty hours of work into twenty-hour weeks, all while charting her baby's every move on a spreadsheet and hoping that her husband will pull his life together, pull on some pants, and find a job. And there's Ayinde, who is married to Philadelphia's most prominent basketball star, until the combination of new baby and infidelity threatens their marriage. As these three grow closer while attempting to put their lives in order, we also come to know Lia, who returns home to Philadelphia after her life in Los Angeles ends in horrible tragedy. By turns moving, funny, and inspiring, LITTLE EARTHQUAKES is a great big delicious read from a prodigiously talented author.

3.0 Little Earthquakes
While the writing is somewhat contrived (do people in real life really throw back their heads and laugh?) and the characters are a bit predictable, Jennifer Weiner did a fantastic job capturing the emotions of new motherhood.

3.0 Little Earthquakes
This isn't a book I would have picked up on my own. My sister lent it to me and I surprised myself by how much I enjoyed this book. It's a book about babies and pregnancy, something I myself do not have an interest in for a few more years. It wasn't until after I read the book and was Googling the a...
