This week's book

I like Jennifer Weiner. I liked In Her Shoes and Good in Bed. But I loved Goodnight Nobody. It was slightly out of the chick-lit genre, but not entirely. I liked Certain Girls a lot. It was a quick and easy read and it actually offered a few surprises. It wasn't totally predictable and although what she writes is very light fare, the author never talks down to the reader and I appreciate that. I've moved on to Late Nights on Air by Elizabeth Hay. A Canadian novel, a Giller prize winner and not quite so light and easy. But well reviewed by the press and by other people I know who have read it.
