BookSparks is putting a spring in your step for this season’s April Showers Blog Tour! Join me in reading, reviewing, and sharing five handpicked, buzz-worthy books! The Fourth book is Meternity by Meghann Foye.
About The Book:
Like everyone in New York, media editor Liz Buckley runs on cupcakes, caffeine, and cocktails. But at thirty-one, she’s plateaued at Paddy Cakes, a glossy baby magazine that flogs thousand-dollar strollers to entitled, hyper-competitive spawn-havers. Liz has spent years working a gazillion hours a week picking up the slack for coworkers with kids, and she’s tired of it. So one day when her bosses mistake her stress-related nausea for morning sickness - boom! Liz is promoted to the mommy track. She decides to run with it and plans to use her paid time off to figure out her life: work, love, and otherwise. It’ll be her “meternity” leave. By day, Liz rocks a foam-rubber belly under fab maternity outfits. By night, she dumps the bump for karaoke nights and boozy dinners out. But how long can she keep up her charade…and hide it from the guy who might just be The One? As her “due date” approaches, Liz is exhausted - and exhilarated - by the ruse, the guilt, and the feelings brought on by a totally fictional belly-tenant…about happiness, success, family, and the nature of love.
This is a hilariously fun read! I laughed out loud on several occasions. A fun fast read, it was perfect for a spring fever read!
