Tales from the Crib

Tales from the Crib

Author: Jennifer Coburn

Genre: Chick Lit, Women’s Fiction

Lucy finds out that she is pregnant at the age of 38 , after so many disastrous previous pregnancies this was a ray of hope . But there is another surprise waiting for her ,  her husband wants a divorce .When he hears about pregnancy ,he comes up with the idea of ‘co-parenting’ ,that is they will live together, he will pay her bills ,they will raise kid together ,but each can have separate lives and they can date anyone they want. While Lucy hates the idea, she has no other(proper) support.

While Lucy is engulfed in to many complications that pregnancy has to offer ,husband starts dating . Later ,the story is all about how they both find lost spark between them and start experimenting with parenting.


My take on Tales from the Crib  :

I got this book for free from amazon through Bookbub. ( You can read the whole article here.)The book at most times very hilarious . Many episodes were ‘laugh out loud’ ones. There are many funny characters. Her self-centered ,vivacious mother, her cousin who married herself , two old typically Jewish aunts ,her husbands ‘perfect girlfriend’ Natalie to offer good humor.

My problem with the book was that  at times ,it was too dramatic ( In my thinking it is too  filmy). Lucy and her husband are brought back together by a tragic accident to him and i saw this in many Telugu films.Most of her problems are solved in way that is ‘too good to be true ‘. I really felt uncomfortable about the ‘quickie’ she has with a random guy during a car wash .(really , inside the car when car is in car wash) . How can a mother of toddler can have something extremely unprotected and dangerous.

Rating for Tales from the Crib : 3.8/5

Hello friends !!! When i was in my Graduation ,i used to spend half of my pocket money on books. On first week of every month it was almost a ritual to show up at the book store . To save money for books , I never used to go for restaurants or films . Along with the books of medicine I used to complete at least 100 other books per year ( excluding  150-200magazines) . I read every kind of book but mysteries,thrillers and romantic ones are my fav. Later I realized that I only wanted to keep biographies , histories ,self help and some humorous books . I never looked at regular romance or mystery books for the second time . Alternatively I tried buying second hand or borrowing . Books of new authors are not usually available that way .


Once I discovered E books it changed my life entirely , I can just carry my Tab . At any given point of time , I have something like 300-400 books in my Tab . That means,if i need some text book that is with me ,if I get bored and feel like reading a comic ,just in between my busy O.P (Out patients ) I can find it handy.  I can not tell you how much I love the experience.


Though I find it very distressing at the beginning  for reading from a bright screen , I got habituated later.But most recently I have been taking the full advantage of my Tab ,that is with Bookbub.

Bookbub is a website which offers you daily offers on major E book apps. So that a book which usually costs around 300-400 bucks , for a limited period ,you can get for free or on discounted price.

Using is simple ,first you need to get registered with your E mail ID, then the site will ask you to select from your favorite genres and authors . That is it ,you will get daily deals on books from different sources . I use Amazon and Kobo readers.

I have collected almost 300+ books in a span of one month . I like reading books of up coming authors  , but I can not risk my money on them , If I am not sure . This site helps me with that . I have read few cozy mysteries , which I do not consider reading again . I got some memoirs and biographies as well ,which I will save without deleting for future. Though you do not get much famous books , for people like me ,it is definitely advantageous. Most of my friends signed up after I told them about this.


Hope you also find this useful…..Just click this link BookBub ( I am not paid for this,I just kept it for your convenience ) .
