This one caught my eye on the library shelf simply because I am a knitter myself. This is definately a chick book. lol It's about a group of women who meet on Friday nights at the yarn store run by the main character. The story goes through about a year of their lives and documents the struggles of each person and how they come to see this group as a family. I enjoyed it. It's a quick read, but the ending comes a little out of left field. I may pick up her other book. Definately not a great work of fiction, but enjoyable none-the-less.
Convergence: Book one of The Blending by Sharon Greene
A fantasy series that looked interesting. I found them at my local used bookstore and picked them up, since I'm looking for a new series. It's interesting. Basically, there are five magical elements: earth, air, water, fire, and spirit. Groups of five people, called a Blending, are formed every 25 years to compete for the five-fold throne. However, the challenges are rigged in favor of a group already chosen by the existing powers. This book introduces the heroes and the struggles they go through before they become a Blending. I found it repetitive; Greene tries to tell everything from everyone's point of view. While each person has a slightly different perspective, hearing the same events five times gets old after a while. I'm reading the second one to see if it gets any better and we'll see what happens from there.
