Book Review: Good Grief



Good Grief by Lolly Winston

This has been on my TBR pile for absolutely ever, and yet seemed to always get superceded by something else.

Why did I wait so long?

I LOVED this novel! Winston takes an atypical chick lit topic and makes it funny and brutal and easy to read. I was rooting for Sophie as she grieves for her husband of only a few years, and works to overcome her sadness by moving on with her life - slowly but surely. At first she revels in her bathrobe, snarfing Oreos, but in time makes changes in her life, gains new friends, and learns to stand on her own.

I laughed, I smiled, I rooted for Sophie. And I want her recipes. :-)

A great, GREAT read!

Note: I knew it would be good when it was blurbed by no less than: Anne Rivers Siddons, Jennifer Weiner, Luanne Rice, Audrey Niffenegger, Jennifer Crusie and Billie Letts.
