ARC Review: Don't Call Me Baby

NOTE: This is a review of a book comes out April 22nd, 2014.

The book Don't Call Me Baby by Gwendolyn Heasley is about Imogene, a girl who's been the focus of her mom's parenting blog since before she was born. Major moments of her life like her name, her first period, and other embarrassing moments have been documented on the blog "Mommylicious," with Imogene being "Babylicious." And Imogene's kind of done with this, and her mom won't listen, so she uses her new school assignment of starting a blog to fight back against this.

I really enjoyed reading this book. And here are the reasons why:

The voice. Imogene's voice is really well done. The character is confused and still trying to figure out who she is, but also knows what she wants, and you really sympathize with her situation even though you probably haven't been in it.

The premise. God, I'm still in such awe of the idea of this book and it was executed really well. And, Heasley did a great job of showing the pros and cons of having the blog, and how you shouldn't hold grudges and the whole story was just well executed.

How happy I am with the premise
The Blog Posts. Along with traditional first-person-POV of Imogene, the book also featured excerpts from Imogene's, Sage's, and Imogene's mom's blog. These were so much fun to read. I kinda wanted more but, honestly, the amount in there was good.

The romance. THE ROMANCE WASN'T A HUGE THING DO YOU KNOW HOW HAPPY THAT MAKES ME! As much as I love romance, this book didn't stray from the fact that it should really be geared more towards good mother-daughter relationships and friendships and that made me so happy. It was like Brave with a blog.

This book was awesome and amazingly fun to read, so I hope you all check it out when it's published.

Rating: 13 Blogs out of 14 :D

Thank you for reading!
