I fell behind on my book reviews. It is now time to catch up.
This Golden Fleece by Esther Rutter. This book is an interesting deep dive into traditional British wool. I did not love how she waxed poetical about being pregnant. If you are a wool nerd you will love this book. I give this book four out of five stars.
How to Knit a Love Song by Rachael Herron. A romance novel about knitters that was written by an actual knitter? Sign me up. This is a predictable romance, but with real knitting content. I give this book three out of five stars.
Shit, Actually by Lindy West. Oh my gosh this book is so funny. It is a collection of essays reviewing movies from the 90s and 00s through today’s lens. So. Very. Funny. I give this book four out of five stars.
People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry. Predictable in the best way. Best friends vacation together every year. There is a falling out. This is an adorable book from the author of Beach Read. I give this book four out of five stars.
The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah. Is this book well researched? Yes. Is this book well written? Oh heck yes. Is this book depressing as hell? Oh gosh yes. I give this book three out of five stars.
How to Knit A Heart Back Home by Rachael Herron. Well, once I discovered a romance series with accurate knitting content I had to read them all, didn’t I? This book might be my favorite of the series. Predictable. Fun. Knitting. I give this book three out of five stars.
Wishes and Stitches by Rachael Herron. So at this point the books start going downhill. Predictable. Knitting. I give this book two out of five stars.
Working with Wool: A Coast Salish Legacy & the Cowichan Sweater by Sylvia Olsen. The good news is some books on knitting don’t make you want to knit a project. The bad news is you will be searching eBay for a Cowichan sweater. This was a very interesting book about the Cowichan sweater. I give this book four out of five stars.
Cora’s Heart by Rachael Herron. Ooof. These books are really going downhill now. Not her best work. Still, not bad. I give the book two out of five stars.
Irish Aran by Vawn Corrigan. This book reads like a high school junior wrote one of those books they put in the rooms of big hotels in large cities. Do not read this book. You will not learn anything. I give this book zero stars.
Fiona’s Flame by Rachael. Fine. Could be good, but it is not great. I give this book two out of five stars.
Have you read anything good lately?
