Start your review of Three Girls and a Baby (Three Girls, #1)
I enjoyed this book; it is about a journey of self-discovery, friendship, love, and, of course, motherhood.
I didn’t much like Ginny at the beginning of the book, but she grew on me as she grew herself during the book.
The story is well structured, in the beginning it keeps you interested because you want to know what happened between Ginny and Josh, and then you want to know how it will end.
I had guessed the main coup de théâtre… but hey, I like it when I get it right.
The only thing I didn’t dig

First let me say, please do not let my review sway anyone from reading this book. Apparently, others enjoyed this story.

In my opinion, this book left a lot to be desired. For some reason I was under the impression that this would be a cute, slightly humorous book about a single girl and the crazy ups-and-downs of pregnancy and raising a baby with the help of two best friends. I was extremely disappointed. In reality, the book centers around Ginny's inability to get over her ex-boyfriend and her

I got this book as a Kindle Freebie and really didn't know what to expect.

I was very pleasantly surprised. The story of Ginny and her two best friends Jen and Annie was one of friendship, coming of age, and finding your place in the grown up world...especially when your world is suddenly turned upside down.

I really enjoyed the storytelling, not just the content, but the writing as well. I thought the book was beautifully written with passages that were both realistic and descriptive in a way tha
So I decided to re-read this series since I wanted some romance reads and wow, I do not think this series holds up at all. I am realizing the main character in this one was the height of being selfish. Other than that though, the ending didn't make a lot of sense since I for one didn't see that Ginny had really changed. I think if the book had focused more on Ginny and her two best friends who help raise her baby (Anne and Jen) would have worked better. Instead we just have Ginny obsessing over ...more

I thought this book was well written but didn't enjoy the story itself. The main character is whiny and self-obsessed to the point of being unlikeable.

The story is about a chick who gets knocked up to her ex-boyfriend but only near the end of the book in a throw-away comment does anyone say that maybe she should've used some form of birth control if she is going to have sex with her ex.

I found her far too passive. Her way of dealing with the unwanted pregnancy is to do nothing. She loses her jo

A book with a newborn baby is always cute!
This was a free ebook, and one of the best freebies I've read.
The story is quick, and fast. An easy, enjoyable read.

Only draw back. In books it often, off the top of my head I think of Something Blue by Emily Giffin but I'm sure there are many ther, happens that perfect bachelors sit around waiting to fall in love with the pregnant girl. I don't know, it's too unrealistic even for a book. I don't see guys falling for pregnant-with-another-guy's-kid women. Also this bachelor had a

I really enjoyed this book. At first, I wasn't really a fan of Ginny. I thought she was selfish and a bit too immature. Then again, she was supposed to be so she could grow throughout the story. In the end, I loved all three girls and the way they related to each other. As soon as I finished I had to buy the second book. I just had to know what happened next! ...more

What an adorable book! I'm not even a baby person but I was getting all excited about the baby, too :)

Ginny knew in college that she was going to marry her boyfriend, Josh, they were going to live in Michigan, and they were going to have kids. Unfortunately, life sometimes doesn't work out the way you plan, as Ginny finds out when Josh breaks up with her and moves to Seattle, leaving her alone and brokenhearted. It was a bad breakup with a lot of regret, and right before Josh left, he and Ginny

Three Girls and a Baby was my first Rachel Schurig book and I was majorly impressed! So impressed that I went on amazon halfway through finishing the book and purchased the last two books in the series (I already have book #2 on my shelf ready to read). I enjoyed Schurig's writing style; the novel was an easy read and light-hearted without being predictable and overly cheesy.

Ginny found out she was pregnant with her ex-boyfriend's baby after they spent a fluke night together months after the br

Nice little story... well written, well paced...
I didn't like the part with the perfect bachelor that is too perfect! I feel I've read it too many times... also the perfect men-too perfect-always seem to fall in love with expecting mothers in books... not very realistic, don't know, it bugs me.

Nice free book.
The story is cute. Good pace. The book is predictable, but not in a bad way.
Definitely a girly read.

It started off a bit slow but eventually became interesting in a "I couldn't put it down" kinda way.
TBH I was please about one story line not ending the way I thought it would, thus making it unpredictable, but guessed another storyline's "twist" before it was revealed, but even though I guessed the twist, I still enjoyed the book overall.

I really enjoyed this book. Three best friends was living together. Jen was more of the mother figure. Annie was into Drama, and theater, and then there was Ginny. It was Ginny who got pregnant, and Annie, and Jen was there every step of the way. The three had me laughing throughout the story. I think everyone needs a friendship like the one they shared. The three went shopping for maternity clothes. Annie, and Jen would try on the ugliest outfit they could find, while Ginny tried on cute clothe ...more

Review first published on my blog:

Three Girls and a Baby is the story of Ginny, who finds herself recovering from a broken relationship and pregnant. The book covers the year from finding out she is pregnant to when the baby is a few months old. It deals with her emotions and the support (or lack of support) from those around her especially her friends and roommates Jen and Annie. In bits and pieces, the book tells about her relationship and how she got t

I absolutely loved this book! At first I wasn't to sure if I wanted to carry on as the main character Ginny seemed like she felt sorry for herself and just looked on the bad side all the time which really irritated me. I more love books with strong independent women. But as the book progressed Ginny started to become stronger, more independent and didn't need the constant love and attention of a man with the help of her 2 best friends Annie and Jen. The story line was amazing.. following Ginny o ...more

A good debut novel; I would have been proud of myself if I wrote this. Just a few errors in spelling and grammar here and there (Kindle edition).

The story is typical chick-lit, plus plus. It is light reading, but definitely not shallow. A lot can be picked up on relationships with friends and family; and love, more importantly for one's self. Good stuff for people who are trying to "find their place"; and the quotes from Dr. Carr are useful for those who are expecting.

This is a lovely book and one you can curl up with and read with a bar of chocolate and a mug of tea!

It was a kindle freebie and took me a while to finish just because it takes me much longer to read on a screen.

I would definitely recommend this book. A real feel good story about 3 best friends, their lives and their relationships.

Plus, any book with a baby in is always a winner for me! So cute!! :)
this was a cute book. it was predictable, but funny and sweet. i like stories about friendships. i was kinda hoping for a 3 men and a baby story, as in (view spoiler) but that didn't happen. it was still sweet though, and i enjoyed it well enough. ...more

I really liked this book, a nice easy read which doesn't involve any thinking.

It was good to watch Ginny grow as a person during her pregnancy and great the way her friends were there for her through it all.

I liked it so much that I downloaded Three Girls and A Wedding straight away.

This is one of the most frivolous, predictable books I've read in a while. I was going to only give it one star and not bother finishing it, but then I decided it was mildly entertaining and fit the bill for an easy read while I was exhausted from our move, so hence the second star. ...more

Kind of ambivalent about this book. Not awful, not great. Very much about the friend-love, but I never felt I knew any of the other characters well. I also just wasn't crazy about the main character, who was whiny and self-involved. ...more

I loved the book. Its about friendship of 3 girls.. about how they support their friend in the lows of her life when she gets pregnant with her ex's baby. They are always there for her whiĺe she gets her life back on track.
It was a wonderful read. I missed my Girl friends a lot while reading.

I felt like I was reading an episode of 16 and pregnant. Yet the main character is a college graduate with a English lit degree. She is so self absorbed most of the book. Blah!
