Friday Night Knitting Club

FridayNightKnitting I LOVED this book.

I’m not really sure what made me pick this book up off the table at Barnes and Noble, but I’m so glad that I did. It might actually be my favorite book right now.

I loved the easy flow of the story. This is not a quick easy read. The pages are large, the type is small, and the margins are puny. There was little space wasted on these pages. And well worth every slow page turn.

I liked the way the club came together and how each person was unique and yet similar. Each had their own story to tell and the only thing they had in common was the club. I also like that the focus was on the store itself. Georgia was in the forefront but only because she was the store’s owner. Each other character was only focused on to the degree that was needed to add depth and character to the store.

I think Georgia was my favorite character. She did things just because they needed to be done. She also followed her heart and paid close attention to the way that she felt about things, not letting her brain get in the way; not for too long at least.

This is a story of forgiveness. Of letting go. Of being yourself and loving who you are. It was a story of gratitude and love. Love for family, for friends, for enemies.

The story could have done without the occasional “f-bomb” or other lame swear word. It held its own without them.

I give this book 5 stars and two thumbs up!

  • I just put it on hold at the library. I saw someone reading this on the plane and it reminded me that I was interested in reading it. Now that I’m done with Breaking Dawn, I need something new to read.
