Bed Rest: Review

Bed Rest
By Sarah Bilston

Quinn "Q" Boothroyd is a young British lawyer married to an American and living in New York City. She's checked off most of the boxes on her "Modern Woman's List of Things to Do Before Hitting 30," and her busy working life has been relatively painless. But when her doctor tells her she must spend the last three months of her pregnancy lying in bed, Q is thrown into a tailspin. Initially bored and frustrated, Q soon fills her days by trying to reconnect with her workaholic husband, provide legal advice for her sweet Greek neighbor, forge new emotional bonds with her mother and sisters, and figure out who will keep her stocked up in cookies and sandwiches.

Q experiences adventures on the couch she never would have encountered in the law firm and learns a lot about herself and what she wants out of life—and above all, about the little one growing inside her.

This story is told in the form of Q's journal when she finds out she needs to go on bed rest. This book was cute and good, but not much else can be said about it. I would not suggest reading this book if you were actually on bed rest, I am sure it would only make the situation worse. I kept waiting to feel more for these characters and it never came.

I am giving Bed Rest
and it falls into these reading challenges...
** I have received nothing for posting this review, this book was picked up from my local library on my own free will! **

Until next time...
Happy Reading!
