Note: I apologize for the strange format. Blogger has apparently gone ape-shit this afternoon!
Apparently, I read a lot more 2 star books than I realized. Or else I'm a REALLY harsh critic. I'll keep these brief so I can wrap the 2 star series up and move on to books I think are worth reading!
The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs (Book Club Selection)
This was complete and total fluff with a completely rushed and trite ending. I can't believe she's written three, if not four, more in this series (this was the first). Everyone in our club thought it was fairly well silly. The plot? Who cares. The only reason I didn't give it 1 star is that it WAS easy to read and I read it quickly.
The Story Sisters by Alice Hoffman
This is the 3rd dud of hers I've read in as many years. Hoffman really likes to write about sisters/mothers/daughters and did it excellently with "Practical Magic". I think that may have been her last really decent book (maybe her first, too). Anyway; this is about three sisters with the last name of Story. One wild and carefree, one smart and studious and one, well, what do you think? Somewhere in the middle. I think I'm giving up on Hoffman unless the next one I read has nothing to do with women.
The Last Wife of Henry VIII by Carolly Erikson
