How to Party with an Infant by Kaui Hart Hemmings
When Mele Bart told her boyfriend Bobby she was pregnant with his child, he stunned her with an announcement of his own: he was engaged to someone else.
Fast forward two years, Mele’s daughter is a toddler, and Bobby and his fiancée want Ellie to be the flower girl at their wedding. Mele, who also has agreed to attend the nuptials, knows she can’t continue obsessing about Bobby and his cheese making, Napa-residing, fiancée. She needs something to do. So she answers a questionnaire provided by the San Francisco Mommy Club in elaborate and shocking detail and decides to enter their cookbook writing contest. Even though she joined the group out of desperation, Mele has found her people: Annie, Barrett, Georgia, and Henry (a stay-at-home dad). As the wedding date approaches, Mele uses her friends’ stories to inspire recipes and find comfort, both.
How to Party with an Infant is a hilarious and poignant novel from Kaui Hart Hemmings, who has an uncanny ability to make disastrous romances and tragic circumstances not only relatable and funny, but unforgettable.
OMG, this book was so boring! If it wasn’t so short, I don’t think I would have been able to finish it. I just could not find any interest in the story. The thing was, there barely even was a story. What was the point of what I just read? Ugh. I’m very unsatisfied with this book.
I was looking forward to it. This is supposed to be a well-established author, but this book did not feel like it was written by a good, experienced author in my opinion. It was incredibly boring to me.
This book advertises itself as funny. I didn’t laugh once throughout the book. All it did was bore me and make me wish it was over already. I had to skim parts in order to make it through.
Thoroughly disappointed with this book.
