Little Earthquakes Read Online Free - Jennifer Weiner's rich, witty, true-to-life "New York Times" bestselling novel tells the story of three very different women as they navigate one of life's most wonderful and perilous transitions: the journey of new motherhood.Becky is a plump, sexy chef who has a wonderful husband and baby girl, a restaurant that's received citywide acclaim -- and the mother-in-law from hell. Kelly is an event planner who's struggling to balance work and motherhood while dealing with an unemployed husband who seems content to channel-surf for eight hours a day. And Ayinde's basketball superstar husband breaks her trust at her most vulnerable moment, putting their new family even more in the public eye. Then there's Lia, a Philadelphia native who has left her Hollywood career behind, along with her husband and a tragic secret, to start her life all over again.
From prenatal yoga to postbirth sex, "Little Earthquakes" is a frank, funny, fiercely perceptive take on the comedies and tragedies of love and marriage.

I have to be honest, I really didn't think that I would like this book even though I liked the author all ready. I just like to read about things that aren't my life. I'm a mom and I know what it's like to do raise a child by yourself or feel like you do anways and some of the other struggles tha...

I really enjoyed this novel. I don't usually read chick-lit, not because I don't like it, but mostly because my usual literary tastes tend to other genres more often than not. It doesn't mean I won't sit down with a light read once in a while in-between other books, or that I'm not willing to rea...

"Bye and bye, bye and bye,
the moon is half a lemon pie.
The mice who stole the other half
have scattered star-crums in the sky.
Bye and bye,
bye and bye,
my darling baby, don't you cry.
The moon is still above the hill.
The soft clouds gather in the sky"....

I've liked Weiner's other two novels, if only because she chooses to have the main character not be stunningly beautiful, tiny proportions etc. They seem real.I still think my favorite of Weiner's books is Good In Bed , but there was a lot that I liked about this book, too. Once again, the autho...

Powerful to me during this period of my life. This author's way of intertwining lives and making you feel like you have a front row seat is just amazing. It was hard to be brought back to those early days with a baby and how it did shake up every essence of your life and marriage, but wonderful...

I didn't give it 5 stars because the main character is typical of her other books...strong minded, insecure inside, wants to befriend everyone, etc etc.
I did like the detail she went into in the supporting cast though. She easily could have left them all sort of one-dimensional, but she gave them...

I don't read a lot of chick lit, but I have enjoyed Jennifer Weiner books in the past, and I was looking for a quick read. This book fulfilled that purpose, fortunately, or I may not have finished it.
This story is about three "very different women" who meet by chance at a prenatal yoga class and...

I'm surrounded by pregnant women, new mothers, and aspiring moms. Everywhere I turn, there's a picture of a belly or a copy of an ultrasound on facebook. At work, I hear the stories of morning sickness and misery from two pregnant co-workers. I spend much of my time planning programs and creating...

So I deviated from my usual elitist book-selection method whereby I try to only read books with awards or accolades, and I read this book. Largely because it was sent to me free from Barnes & Noble. I had never heard anything about it, so was a little amused and surprised to find out it was b...

This is a great book for new moms who have a little distance from the challenge of those first few tough weeks/months. Even if it's fiction, it helps to see that it's hard for everyone at the beginning and that we all have reasons to count ourselves lucky. It's also a heartwarming story of how fr...
