What I’ve Read: Bed Rest by Sarah Bilston
I had gone to the library to pick up some books I had on hold and decided to buzz through the fiction section while there. As I walked through, I saw Bed Rest sitting on a shelf and picked it up on a whim.
It’s a pretty basic book. It’s short (you could read it in an afternoon or in a couple days), has a simple plot (pregnant NYC woman gets placed on bed rest, antics ensue) and ends on a fairly predictable note. This by no means, however, means that it’s not worth reading. It’s a light, fun book and I imagine anyone who has actually been on bed rest would find this book that much more enjoyable. Bilston is a humorous writer and manages to convey familiar chick lit emotions without resorting to any groan-worthy chick lit cliches. I really liked the book…and was relieved that I’m not on bed rest! (Knock on wood.)
