Hidden Under Her Heart - Book Review


Reading is not something I really have time for anymore.  I have lots of free time, but its interrupted often, which doesn't work well for reading a book.  I lose my page and end up reading the same passages a few times.  So I do most of my reading in the bath.  Or while Michael watches anime on Netflix.

I was recently given a chance to read Hidden Under Her Heart by Rachelle Ayala.  The review is due today, and I finished it at 12:30 this morning.  I have always been a procrastinator.

Hidden Under Her Heart is the story of Maryanne Torres, a nurse who is trying to find love, but kind of sucks at it.  She meets Lucas and they have a roller coaster relationship, complicated by an unplanned pregnancy.

From a critical point of view, the story has a lot of flaws.  There are some obvious grammatical errors, and the story was unevenly paced.  The characters didn't have a lot of development.  I had a first printing of the book, in newer versions and the e-book the errors are corrected.

BUT, I really like the book!  In real life people don't have huge personality changes or growth in the matter of 9 months.  In real life people do keep making the same mistakes over and over again.  Exciting things don't happen at an even pace.

This is supposed to be a Christian novel, but honestly it has a little to much language and mildly graphic sex scenes for me to call it that.  It DOES talk about God and Jesus, and church.  I was contacted by the author after I published this review, and in the newer versions of the book and e-book the sex scene has been deleted.  

Last but certainly not least (in fact it is a main topic of the book) is that this book talks a lot about abortion.  It is DEFINITELY a pro-life book :)

If you would like to purchase this book, it is available on Amazon.  It is $1.99 for an e-book and $9.10 for a paperback!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…
