(26) Magnolia Wednesdays by Wendy Wax

I love a good girly book set in the South. For a small town Midwest girl, the south, specifically Atlanta, is like another planet.

I think, in a way, Wendy Wax agrees with me. In her new book, Magnolia Wednesdays , Ms Wax takes us deep into the wilds of Suburbia Atlanta with her character, Vivien. ViVi has been living and working as an investigative reporter in New York City when she is hit with major life changing events. She runs off to her sister's house in the suburbs with the hopes of , well, hiding from the rest of the world. Things rarely go as planned in a well written Chick Lit novel. Magnolia Wednesdays is no different and Vivi has to own up to her mistakes both past and present.

Magnolia Wednesdays is a funny, yet poignant, novel that will take the reader into the wilds of Suburbia Atlanta. Kind of a fish out of water tale. As the story progresses and various pieces of information come to light, you see the relationships between ViVi and her sister grow. It is heartwarming to watch and I enjoyed reading all about Vivi and her exploits in the suburbs. It was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
