Krista’s #CBR4 #61-69

If you read some of these reviews, you will see I am clearly at the end of my intelligent reviewing capability, but here you go. This OFFICIALLY catches me up with all of the books that I’ve read this year — hard to believe, I know! Good thing the year is nearly over and I won’t have as many reviews to catch up on.

61. Lineage of Grace, Francine Rivers

62. I’d Know You Anywhere, Laura Lippman

63. The Kill Order, James Dashner

64. The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth, Alexandra Robbins

65. Basic Christian Leadership, John Stott

66. Fly Away Home, Jennifer Weiner

67 & 68. ImpulsePerfect, Ellen Hopkins

69. Then Came You, Jennifer Weiner

Happy reading, you guys!

HelloKatieO’s #CBR4 Review #41: Then Came You by Jennifer Weiner

My love of Jennifer Weiner as an author, and cool human being, is well documented. I bought her most recent book during one of those epic delays at an airport, and it was fine. Honestly, “fine” is kind of disappointing for an author who’s books I usually love. In Her Shoes and Good in Bed are two books I read over, and over, like comfort food.

Then Came You is the story of a baby, from the perspective of all the people who took part in creating its life. The egg donor at Princeton who sells her eggs to pay for her father’s rehab. The surrogate mother who’s military husband is frustrating she’s selling her body because he can’t provide for them. The infertile woman who waited her whole life to land a husband who could provide for her, who finds out her body can’t have children. Her stepdaughter, who fears the infertile woman is a gold digger.
