One of my holiday reads whilst in St Ives was "The Friday Night Knitting Club" - much to the amusement of my young man! He kept asking if anyone had been shot yet! Or stabbed with a knitting needle.
I loved it, it was a great holiday read. It was set in New York and centred around a single mother who owned a wool shop and the unusual friendships formed at the knitting club. It was like "Sex and the City" but with knitting instead of sex. I hear that they making it into a film, and I think it will translate well onto the big screen. The book ends with a bit of a twist which I really didn't see coming. It's proper Chick Lit, but OK for when you want a lighter read.
I love chick-lit and this book sounds interesting. Your description of the plot reminds me of the Jane Austen Book Club. Have you read it?
Enjoy the new week! ;)
Sounds great! I will have to try and find a copy! xx
Sounds fun. I'll look out for that one. I do most of my reading in my lunchbreaks at work, so I don't want anything too highbrow.
50 shades of grey wool?
just catching up with your posts Diane.
Not read this.....but not reaf about 50 books on my shelf either!
Like it says on the cover "worth taking a duvet day for". Sometimes we all need to read something a little light hearted. Thanks for the recommendation, Diane. x
Do you accept awards?
I have one for you!
