I mostly write about parenting on my blog and other portals. When I came to know about this book, I knew I had to review it. I am sharing the parenting book review of Manisha’s first Ebook – Anaaya and I – My journey to motherhood which takes you along on the journey of motherhood with her.

About the author –

Manisha Garg has over 10 years of experience in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry. In 2016, she quit her job to pursue writing. She started https://zarahatkeblog.com which currently has 250+ blogs across various categories like beauty & fashion, lifestyle & relationships, travel experiences, etc.

About the book –

Anaaya and I is a story weaved through the mother’s eyes. Encapsulated in this book is her journey to motherhood. The story travels through 26 milestones featuring all the memorable moments. Anaaya & I is about Manisha’s journey to motherhood. An attempt to express those emotions in words!

What I liked about the book –

When I was reading Manisha’s book, it brought back so many memories from my pregnancy days. I could relate to so many things as a mom. It’s not an easy journey and for Manisha, it has been a tough one. She shared some road blocks like health problems and up and downs which happened literally every month before her cute bundle of joy was born.

I liked the way Manisha has described all the small moments in different chapters. A reader can surely connect to it the way it is written in simple language. The book touches all aspects of pregnancy and motherhood, walking you through every month and the developments of baby, and the challenges with it.

The best part is that book will keep you hooked till the end. Some chapters made me smile, some made me even cry but I enjoyed reading it. Also, my favourite is the beautiful book cover which makes it stands apart.

Something to add –

I wish Manisha would have added few pictures too. It always makes the book a little bit more interesting. But hope to see a second part with Anaaya’s first year fun and some pictures too.

A round-up –

If you are a mom or a parent, you must read this book. I am sure you can relate to it. This book will keep you hooked, make you smile, bring tears to your eyes and will surely make you remember your motherhood and pregnancy journey. It is different from other pregnancy books as this one has a lot of mom’s emotions attached to it.

Manisha faced one hurdle after other during her pregnancy and if you want to know how she overcame everything and delivered her beautiful bundle of joy, you must download the book.

It is a beautiful gift for Anaaya from her mom and I am sure she will enjoy it when she grows up.
