    1. Disclaimer: I have read and loved the blog. This is one of my favorite blogs, and I look forward to Leah's daily updates. That being said, this book is different from the blog. The basic story is essentially the same, but there is way more detail in parts of the book.So, the bad first. This book was long. And by the end, it felt long. The last half was almost entirely about the boy. This could have been two books- one about her infertility and one about the boy. The story of the boy has been tol [...]

    2. I've followed Leah's story for awhile - I can't remember how I found her blog, and throughout time I've fallen in and out of reading it, but I am always drawn back because her writing is so raw and honest.Her book is no different.Don't let the title fool you - this book is about more than infertility.It's about finding yourself and learning how you handle situations you never thought you'd experience; about trying new things and picking yourself up when they don't work out the way you planned; a [...]

    3. Single Infertile Female is Leah's story. On her blog, she has chronicled her journey through infertility, and the book takes you even deeper into her difficult and painful struggle. What makes this story unique is that she battled endometriosis, infertility, and IVF without a partner by her side.Because I've followed Single Infertile Female--the blog--for years, I wasn't sure what to expect from the book. Would it be just a collection of her best posts? Or something more?While many of the experi [...]

    4. I have been an avid reader of Leah's blog for years now. Hers is the only infertility blog that I have kept up with since my own IF journey ended two years ago. I love the way she writes love her details and lengthy posts. I was so looking forward to the book--to get a deeper glimpse into her story. I finished tonight and I am so, so disappointed. Not with the length--I love a good, LONG novel, but with the content. The first part of the book was phenomenal. She really brought emotion to the jou [...]

    5. I received a copy in exchange for an honest reviewI shared a personal story recently on my author blog, about learning my biological father is a sperm donor. After that post, I was contacted by Leah Campbell, who talked with me about her story and offered me some great advice, tips, and just an outlet to connect with someone who understands what I went through upon learning that news. Leah offered me a copy of her book, Single Infertile Female, and I immediately took her up on the offer. I found [...]

    6. I have been reading Leah's blog and recognised the story that's told. I really liked the first two parts of the book, explaining the disease of endo, infertility and treatments and the enormous impact it has in life. Personally I though the third part of the book was to lengthy and the 'boy' got way too much space. I would rather have read more about her ways of healing with for example training for the triathlon and half marathon that only is briefly mentioned at the end.

    7. I wanted more. More details yes, but really more emotion. How it made her feel, each step of the way I wanted to feel that with her and it fell short. The first half was like a series of breathless blog posts told at a mile a minute. The second half slowed down a bit but still left me wanting to know more.

    8. This was a great honest book about how Leah has navigated through unexpected infertility. She chronicles how she grew up faster & came to realizations she didn't previously think she was ready to make. She then chronicles her failures. Whether it was infertility & failed ivf or relationships. I'd highly recommend the book & even more highly recommend following her on social media!

    9. Having been a follower of SIF for several years, I wasn't unfamiliar with her story. I was pleased to read more of the background and fill of that story. I was just as frustrated reading about the drama with Nick as I was while it happened on the blog. She's an even better writer than I thought and I hope she writes more, as I really enjoyed this book.

    10. I connected with this author on her IF struggles and loved how she wrote honestly about how everything made her feel. All the parts about her toxic lover just annoyed me though, it just dragged on and on.

    11. The IF and endo stuff was tough to read, a little too raw still, I guess. But that part of it was ok reading. Unfortunately, more than half the book is play by plays of her relationships. That would have been more tolerable if it weren't so-like.

    12. LOVED it!!! Accurate portrayal of what someone goes through when faced with infertility!!! Leah is very relatable and makes you feel like great friends!

    13. The parts about Leah's endometriosis and fertility issues were interesting. Unfortunately, the parts about her relationships were tiresome and showed lack of insight.

    14. An honest and frank account of what women go through. I found myself crying at times, laughing at other times and I finished the book with a lot to think about. Highly recommend it to anyone.
