Synopsis/Blurb (taken from Goodreads):
“A group of friends, a few bottles of wine and a good book. What could be better? The women who form the Reading Group are as varied as the books they choose to read. But each has secret hopes and fears – for a new lover; a straying husband; an ailing mother; a tearaway teenager. Can they find the answers to life’s problems in the pages of a good book?”
This book has taken me forever to read. Personally, I found it to be very slow. I only finished it for two reasons. The first was because it was a book club read and I didn’t want to give up as I wanted to join in with the discussion during our meet up, and secondly I thought the book would get more interesting.
I don’t normally read these types of books and think this may have contributed to another reason to why I didn’t enjoy the book. I tried to like this book but at times I just wanted to throw it across my bedroom this is mainly because I found some of the characters annoying and couldn’t really connect with them.
I thought the book could have been written better.
What I did like about this book was the books the women in the books read over the course of the year. I have even added some to my TBR list, as I don’t already have enough.
