Review

No longer a mad bride to be (see DIARY OF A MAD BRIDE), Amy Thomas Stewart finds work as a public relations specialist to self proclaimed celebrities and politicians so low in the food chain, photosynthesis has not been reached. Perhaps it is the inanity of her job that she loses, but Amy begins thinking a baby would make life complete. Her beloved husband Stephen is not quite as comfortable with the concept yet reluctantly agrees.

When the stick turns obligingly blue, Amy knows her diary entries will change to what she wants for her baby, potential names, and key daily events like puking at any hour of the day. As she is beginning to learn about the habits of the creature residing in her womb, Amy is on twenty-four hour call not just mornings when she feels sick. As the blessed event comes closer and her figure vanishes, Amy thinks people look at her like she suffers from an incurable contagious illness.

Though often amusing, by its nature the diary of a pregnancy becomes repetitive (how often can one vomit); still chick lit fans will laugh at many of Amy’s comments on her observations of the world filtered through a natural hormonal haze. Though not quite as refreshing as the prequel, DIARY OF A MAD MOM TO BE has many humorous moments that will bring laughter to sub-genre fans and anyone pregnant though have a bathroom handy as the laughs directly effect the bladder. Though overall fun, only the die-hard wolverine fan will want a pack of more Amy titles such as “Diary of a Mad Geriatric”.
