Book Review: Three Girls & A Baby by Rachel Schurig

Exams are finally over!!!
And we all know what that means; more reading time! I've missed reading books these past few months due to me having to revise for exams and being so tired that I haven't had any effort. Really, I should make the effort, because it's so nice to escape into another world when you read a book. Anyway, today, I'm going to be reviewing 'Three Girls & A Baby' by Rachel Schurig.

This book was recommended to me by my mum. When on her Kindle, she finds books that no one really knows about and always recommends them. The moment she started the book, she nagged and nagged at me to download it because she knew I'd love it. The way she described it to me was like a 'chick flick in a book'. I'm a lover of a good chick flick from time to time so when I finished reading 'The Perks of Being A Wallflower', I downloaded the book immediately. 

This book is the first in a series of five, following three young girls who have just graduated from College. They've moved into their own flat and are loving life. In the first book, we get to know all about Ginny, a nanny who couldn't be happier with her life; she has a gorgeous guy on her arm and lives with her two best friends, what more could she ask for? However, things take a turn for the worst when her boyfriend, Josh, leaves her. Ginny is devastated and turns to the comfort of Ben and Jerrys, that is until a familiar face comes knocking at the door. It's Josh, and he wants her back. In her lovesick state, she spends the night with him. This is when the bombshell comes. Ginny is pregnant, but Josh wants nothing to do with it. We then follow Ginny on her journey through pregnancy with her two best friends. We sit with her through the highs and the lows, but just how will she cope bringing a new life into the world, when she can barely cope herself? 

At first, the book is a little hard to get into, which I think, combined with exams, is what took me a little longer to get fully into it. But please, whatever you do, persevere with it because it gets to a point where you literally cannot put the book down. When my mum told me that it was like a chick flick in a book, I was very confused, but I can now say that it is the perfect way to describe the book as a whole. It made me cry, it made me laugh, and the girls are such loveable characters. You'll definitely be able to relate to at least one of them. The ending is such a shocker too, not one I expected at all. I'm very surprised that they haven't made a film from this book yet, it'd be so good for a film. I'm on the second book in the series at the moment and I can't wait to read the rest. This is one of the series of books that is up there with the Stephanie Perkins novels (If you have a chance to read those, please do because they're awesome!).
