AMAZING book!!! Loved the characters! Loved the story! It was great that Weiner wrote from the POV of several of the characters. It made it a very full story. It all seemed very realistic. But I have to say that it really made me want to have a baby! Talk about getting my biological clock ticking!!

This is chick-lit that I'll never outgrow. I love Weiner's style and her books feel like old friends, including this one.

Really good book. My first introduction to Jennifer Weiner's books, and I was pretty pleased. Tells the story of four women who's lives collide as if by fate. Each woman goes through a different life crisis (or two) and is helped by one or more in the group. Cute story. Not a bad weekend read.

Jennifer Weiner again captured that "something" about being a new mom. It was a great read and entertaining. And yep! It made me tear up.

Talk about patchwork quilt! I loved how Lia takes you on a journey with these separate women going through their own "little earthquakes" yet weaves them together getting you completely and utterly invested in their lives. I love Lia and want to give her a hug too!!!

Excellent! The entwined story of 4 young mothers. The four each experience the joy of pregnancy and then each their own form of tragedy.
Even though I dont have kids this book is so well written you can feel for all the women.
Highly recogmended.

This is by far Jennifer Weiner's best book. I thought that 'Good in Bed' was fairly good, but I did not care for 'In Her Shoes'. I was hesitant to read 'Little Earthquakes' but am so glad that I did. I found myself unable to put it down!

This was a cute book all about babies. It was entertaining and a pretty fast/light read. I still think that her first book was her best (it was at certainly the one that I enjoyed the most!). Still I will continue to read her books for the chick lit escapist books that they are.

Truly, my major complaint about this was more about how poorly she was able to stick the the P.O.V. her chapter headings indicated.

Nice light read about new mothers and new friendships. I could relate to the feelings of the new mothers and recall how it was when I had my child.

This was an AWESOME book. I loved the characters, and their experiences as pregnant women, then new mamas was just spot on!

I've never read any of Jennifer Weiner's books before but picked this up after hearing a girlfriend rave over it. I couldn't put it down! As a mother, I could relate to each mother in the book in a different way. This is one book I'd recommend over and over!

I enjoyed this book. I like the easy writing style adn find this a good break from some of the heavier novels. This is about a bunch of new mothers and their journeys into motherhood, as well as what happens in their marriages.

She is one of my favorite authors. This book was a little different from her other ones I thought but still a book that I didn't want to put down!

I read this book when I went into Labor with my son, not realizing the book had to do with becoming a mother. It was the most suitable book to have at my bedside

After In her shoes and good in bed, I was a little dissapointed. However; an easy read, and better then a lot of "chic lit".

A great story...will make you laugh and cry. Being a new mother, I could really relate to the characters. But, I think it will bring back great memories of pregnancy and new motherhood for all you experienced moms, too.
