Review: What You Wish For by Kerry Reichs

What You Wish For by Kerry Reichs

Publisher: William Morow 
Pages: 304 
Format: book
Buy the Book: Amazon  

Goodreads:  The traditional and nontraditional couples desperate for a baby . . . the adoptive parents . . . the single mom . . . the two who want "nothing" to do with parenthood. . . . This is a thoroughly modern story of the pursuit of family in all its forms--and of five very different ways of getting there.

Kritters Thoughts:  A book full of interesting sides on the conversation of children and the pursuit of family.  Between a single male who is trying to become a parent and an actress who is realizing that her time is limited in having children, this book covers all aspects of the children topic.  It was really fun to see how the different plots would intersect, some were not even on my radar!  

Once you read this book, you may be surprised that I am of the Eva camp.  My fiancee and I love our nieces and nephews, but not sure that a child is in our plan.  We have a dog and she is the best, but a boat, a house and travels rank higher on our list.  I am constantly advised by others that some day; I just hope that they realize that some day may never arrive.

I loved that all view points and ideas as to how one becomes a parent were presented in this book.  I laughed out loud and even shed a few tears, I would recommend this book to the masses.  

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel

  1. Becoming a parent, no matter how it happens, can be tremendously complicated. Sounds like this book does a great job portraying many of those complications.

    Glad to see that you enjoyed it! Thanks for being on the tour.
