Those Other Women by Nicola Moriarty

Those Other Women

'The group did though. The group was exactly what I needed. The group was my saviour. Even if technically speaking - I didn't qualify. Even if I was an imposter.' Poppy and Carise are frustrated. They're tired of watching the same old cycle: women in their office fall pregnant, leave early and take months off only to eventually return, requesting 'more flexibility'. All with smug smiles on their faces. That's why they create the 'No Baby Club' - ...

    My first book by Nicola Moriarty and I wasn’t disappointed. The characters, situations and places all had an authentic and relatable ring to them. Being from Sydney I got a kick out of recognising some of the places mentioned and I could perfectly visualise the scenarios. The story follows two different groups of women, a mother’s online group and a non mother’s group which end up pitting against each other often with disastrous results. Th...

    EXCERPT: Poppy and Garret's separation was pretty easy. No kids, no pets, no mortgage. Separate bank accounts, one car each. And their rental lease had been due for renewal. There was a shared savings account they'd each been depositing money into to buy a house one day, and they simply split it down the middle. Admittedly, Poppy earned a little more than Garret, so she'd probably put more money into the account than he had, but she didn't care. ...

    Look, after reading and re-reading this book about thirty times over the course of six months, I have the admit, the story started to get a tad predictable, but that said, I'll still have to give it five stars because of my fragile ego.

    When you want to read a light but gripping, lovely chick-lit book, Moriarty sisters never let you down.Nicola Moriarty has a witty and entertaining tone. I loved the way she described the 'hipster' cafes:In a time when most cafes had gone full hipster - everything organic, staff with beanies and thick glasses, and seats made out of tree stumps or milk crates - the cafe next to Cormack was unapologetically ... plain. Everything on the menu had glu...

    3.5 starsThose Other Women is the sort of book I enjoy immersing myself in and for the space of a day that's exactly what I did. Billed as thriller/psychological it definitely had an Australian contemporary womens fiction feel to it - which I love. From the first page I was caught up in the drama as Poppy was blindsided by her husband Garrett and best friend Karleen's affair. I couldn't stop turning the pages as Poppy came to terms with their bet...

    Absolutely heartbreaking. Poppy's best friend Karleen who was her maid of honour is a back stabbing bitch she's having an affair with Poppy's husband Garret. Too make Poppy's heart hurt even more she always thought that her and Garret had agreement that they both didn't want kids, but now Karleen tells Poppy that Garret does what kids. I'm always the happiest reading about marriage problems, but The Other Women certainly broke my heart for Poppy....

    "Those Other Women" by Nicola Moriarty introduces us to two different groups of women - one of them is a mother's online group, so - called MOP, and the other one is NOP, the non - mothers' one. The second group has been established by one of our main characters, Poppy, who's tired with - as she thinks - mothers being favoured everywhere and, basically, having it all easier - like getting holidays, finishing their work earlier and so on. Also, Po...

    I was keen to read this book after reading Nicola's book The Fifth Letter last year. This is a very interesting book - funny and sad at times, a little dark, and a little scary about modern life.Poppy has just broken up with her husband, he left her for her best friend who is now pregnant with their child. Poppy and her husband had agreed that they didn't want ever to have children, consequently Poppy feels upset, angry and annoyed with them. At ...

    Crazy, dramatic, but relatable! The story begins with Poppy. She discovers her husband hasn't been faithful. That, and he was slightly confused when he told her, he was like her, he didn't want children. A betrayal that would be hard for anyone to get past, alongside her mother's lack of acceptance that her daughter really and truly just doesn't want children. So to move on, Poppy creates her own private, exclusive, Facebook group to connect with...

    With thanks to Netgalley and Penguin for this ARC in exchange for an open and honest review.Poppy felt shocked and betrayed when she found out her husband Garrett had been having an affair with her childhood friend Karleen. When Poppy had first met Garrett she explained she never wanted children which he agreed upon. However Garrett had changed his mind and did want to start a family. Four months After Poppy and Garrett had divorced she was devas...

    This is a book which has captivated my attention on so many levels; it’s packed full of details with several story lines. It entertaining and fun, but with a serious side.Poppy and Annalise are women who work for the same company and play sport together. When Poppy’s best friend betrays her in the worst way, Annalise helps her pick up the pieces. Fed up with – as they see them – smug mummies getting an easier ride at work than they do –...

    It's all very well promising to write a review in return for a copy of a book, but this is where it gets difficult. I didn't like 'Those Other Women.' Please bear with me here because I have read through many other reviews that have praised it and provided excellent scores and I do seem to be very much in the minority. As I always say, mine is an entirely subjective point of view, and perhaps it wasn't the right time for me to read this book and ...

    When Poppy's betrayed by her best friend and husband, she creates a social media group for fellow non-mothers to find like-minded women who are tired of being judged for their decision to not have children. Modeling itself after a popular mothers' group of the area, Poppy inadvertently fuels a rivalry between the two groups when members of the mothers' group infiltrate -- for innocent or more devious reasons -- and start riling both groups up.As ...

    I really struggled with this book. I thought it would be a really interesting debate about the choice to have children or not but I found the debate was lost. I didn't gel with the main character and found it confusing in parts. It wasn't for me I'm afraid.

    Read more bookish goodness on my book blog: Cal's Constant Raving Reviews MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE BOOK:I had a ball reading this book. It wasn't too Occa, yet still reflected the True Blue of bitchy Aussie Mums (and non-Mums). I listened to this book in one day on my commute to uni and loved being immersed in the scenery as I was listening to it.CHARACTERS/DYNAMICS:I'll be honest, I read this over a week ago and have already finished another book....

    Enjoyable read about how things can get out of hand very easily, especially where there's opposing groups of women involved!Poppy is one of the main characters and she thought her life was going along great, until her husband and best friend announce they're in love and having a baby, even though Poppy and her husband had both agreed that neither one of them wanted children when they got married.So Poppy moves out and gets an apartment in the sam...

    Kudos for this one. I picked it up thinking I will give the author another chance after struggling to get through The Fifth Letter. I get a bit iffy with plots based around friendship and 'figuring out the pain the arse' types.I liked the plot in this one with it's little twists and turns. I loathed the main characters and found them selfish as f***. As a mother myself, I identified with Frankie the most and loved her character - she is my kind o...

    I loved Nicola’s first book, The Fifth Letter, so I was very excited to be offered the chance to read an early copy of the book.Nicola is fantastic at writing stories about realistic situations that could actually happen.  As a mother myself I have heard mainly the mother’s side of the story so it was fascinating to go behind the scenes and hear the other side of the argument.  I think I now understand a little more about the frustrations w...

All in all I wasn’t blown away but would recommend for a light feel-good somewhat predictable read!! 3 1/2 stars ⭐️ I enjoyed this. It was an amusing read with enjoyable easy storyline.

    Kind of uneven, I wanted to like this book a lot. The writing was not as stellar as it should have been. The story itself is compelling. Pitting non-mothers with mothers, adding in a bit of social media brouhaha. However there was something lacking and I can’t point out what it is. It took me a while to get through it.Access to review copy provided by the publisher.

    A novel that highlights the issues facing women today, the complexities of being a working mum, how women often tear each other down instead of building each other up and how easy it is to create a false reality (and identity) on social media. I found this a very easy read, and enjoyed the novel being set in Sydney. There were a few plot twists throughout, and an overall uplifting message that women should be supporting each other instead of judg...

    Now here's a book bound to cause some controversy and discussion! Thank you to Sam Deacon at Michael Joseph for the advanced reading copy.Being a mother of four, you'd think I would never be able to understand why some women just do not want children. But if I say I do understand, that does not mean I wish I had never had any. I just know that for some, the maternal instinct just isn't there. And that's fine. each to their own. As far as I am con...

    I received an ARC from Good Reads to read and review "Those Other Women" by Nicola Moriarty. Below is my honest review.I enjoyed this book, it wasn't drawn out like some books all the way up to the end. It kept you reading because interesting parts are thrown in. This also is an easy read and I found myself not even looking at the page numbers, I was flying through this book.The characters are realistic, and very interesting. Not many male charac...

    I loved this! Super relatable premise for me and I loved having a character who is childless by choice not circumstance... this is my first Nicola Moriarty believe it or not; this had a chick lit feel but with a little ‘more’ Also... if there is a NOP group out there someone add me 😉
