Here’s a description from the publisher’s website:

Becca Reinhart loves her life. Firmly planted on the Wall Street fast track to success, she has no desire to marry and raise a family. Ditto Edward Kirkland, a charming playboy who has never known what it means to work for a living, and hopes never to find out. Enter Emily, who becomes Becca and Edward’s common denominator when a quirk of fate gives them joint custody of the high-spirited little girl. Suddenly, two people who have never met find themselves immersed in the trials and tribulations of domestic life as they navigate the rocky shoals of parenthood, from naptime to play dates, psychological fitness screenings to the life-or-death preschool admissions process. And amid the daily demands of raising a young child, Becca and Edward discover something else: They’re made for each other.

[Random Babbles] A to Z Bookish Survey

Just a little something to pass the time. Jamie of The Perpetual Page-Turner started this survey, and it looked like fun, so I decided to have a go at it.

~ A to Z Bookish Survey ~

Author you’ve read the most books from:

J.K. Rowling. I’ve read 11 of her books = 10 from the Harry Potter universe, 1 crime novel (The Cuckoo’s Calling, though she used a pseudonym, but that counts too, right?)

However, this will soon be exceeded by Rick Riordan. I’ve read 11 of his books so far (5 from the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series, and 3 each from the Kane Chronicles and Heroes of Olympus series), but this will become 12 books soon since House of Hades will be released in October and I’m definitely going to read that one!

Best Sequel Ever:

Hmm… I can’t really say for sure. Though Moribito II: Guardian of the Darkness is the one that immediately popped up in my mind. I thought that book transcended its predecessor. It was great to read about Balsa’s backstory. (Also see Hidden Gem Book below)
