Booking through Thursday

This week we are asked to discuss the following ------
Suggested by Janet:

The opposite of last week’s question: “What’s the best ‘worst’ book you’ve ever read — the one you like despite some negative reviews or features?”

The only one that I think fits into this category is 'Blessings' by Anna Quindlen. Published in 2003, the year I bought it ,after reading the jacket cover I was keen to buy it. However, during the interval between buying and reading I came across some negetive reviews. Theses, didn't deter me(after all, money had crossed palms!) so I started with some trepidation. I needn't have worried as I thoroughly enjoyed the novel and it remains on my bookshelf.

More book talk can be found here.

I have not read Blessings, but did read The Pilot's Wife or was it Black and Blue? Anyway, I always thought she had a good reputation, so I am glad to hear that you enjoyed this book.

Yes, over many years I've learned not to put all my trust in reviews. Sometimes you just have to go with your instincts and take a chance on a book, no matter what the reviewers say.

I read this book several years ago and liked it, too.

My mother-in-law recommended Blessings to me, but I haven't yet read it. I am glad to hear it's among your favorites!
