Author Megan Silianoff has made us laugh, reflect, grow, and most of all consistently see beautiful. In her hilarious and beautifully crafted memoir, Megan continues down her path of inspiring others through laughter and tears (NOTE: tears stream from laughter).

In her memoir (that we've already purchased 10 copies of and found it wasn't nearly enough), Megan Silianoff tells is like it is...well, if you're talking about cancer, adoption, and of course, Jay-Z. She has witty, brilliant stuff to say about meds, fashion, blogging, food and travel too.

This book is one that's near and dear to our hearts and left us seeing beautiful in so many ways. We were honored to feature it as our See Beautiful book of the month. Now you need it. You'll be proud to have it shining on your bookshelf.

As an Emergency room and ICU nurse I understand the stress and implications that go with a cancer diagnosis. However; my view is very different than what the patient goes through. I can only imagine the stress, fear and sadness my patients go through. Megan does an amazing job of bringing it to life. I am blessed I have never had to deal with all that comes with a cancer diagnosis. Megan not only brings it to a head, but puts an astonishing humor to it. As a nurse I use humor to disguise the true feelings that encompass disease, death and fear. It's a natural reaction that nurses use to deal with the daily sadness and fear of what our patients deal with on a daily basis. Megan so eloquently turns this fear and sadness into something we can all relate to. You know the saying, "If you cant laugh you cry"? well Megan does that in this book. From her trials and tribulations from Cancer to the process of adoption, she takes you through in a way that one can only make the best of situations. She went through hell and back, but whats different about her story is that she makes you laugh. Laughter is the only thing in my 12 years of nursing that makes this journey possible.

After listening to Megan Silianoff on One Part Podcast, I had to check out her book.
What a good read! Few years ago, I had to have Dermoid cyst, big as moon removed. For someone who never had surgery before, it was blood-curdling, surreal experience, especially the possibility of losing ovaries.

So reading each situation with the writer's sense of humor was truly relatable. Many many chuckles. I also had to watch her interview on youtube. Macy Carter, her adopted daughter was also in it and she was so cute!

99 Problems is written in a blog-style as Megan tells her story of fighting cancer and adopting Macy, the prettiest little girl you've ever seen. Don't worry, those aren't spoilers. No one could possibly spoil the superior hilarity and utter vulnerability Megan employs in each "blog post." Also, lots of references to Jay Z, which is never a bad thing.

One of the things that sets 99 Problems apart from similar titles is that the voices of Megan's friends and family play a role in her story. I loved that we were able to read their comments on each post as she updates about the process of her diagnoses and recovery. Her loved ones clearly care and show so much concern and support for Megan and her family, but they also set up some of the funniest one liners in the book.

The third and final section of the book is probably my favorite. Without giving too much away, the final section introduces us to Macy's birth mother. The relationship that Megan and Macy's birth mom form is so unique and special. The adoption process seems to be almost intentionally difficult, so by time Megan meets her, I as a reader was rooting extra hard that things would work out. I'll let you read the book to find out what goes down, but let me warn you that this would be the time you want to grab some Kleenex.

I'm a notoriously slow reader, but I finished 99 Problems but a Baby Ain't One in less than 24 hours. I couldn't put it down, I couldn't stop laughing, and I'm pretty sure Megan actually stopped time while I read. All of a sudden I closed the back cover and looked around and it was dark again. What the heck happened? 99 Problems but a Baby Ain't One by Megan Silianoff happened.

It's so hard to find real-life books about adoption that actually resonate and don't feel like they were written in the 80s by someone that's never even adopted. Megan is hilarious. Even if you're not adopting, the story-telling is awesome and such a fun, touching, quick read.

When faced with cancer, the author Megan manages to turn a bad situation into a positive one. Her unique humor had me laughing throughout the book. Yet, beneath the humor is a really strong woman showing people that one can manage to get through the trials and tribulations of this thing called life with a smile.

99 Problems but a Baby Ain't One contains a lesson that humor can play a powerful influence on attitude and outlook. Navigating treatment options and anxiety of cancer along with clearing the red tape of adoption aren't light hearted subjects yet I laughed pretty darn hard throughout this book. The combination of the author's perspective followed by comments posted on her blog made for a very entertaining read. Megan has both the gift of gab and the pen.
