Book Review - The Wednesday Sisters (Wednesday #1) by Meg Waite Clayton

The Wednesday Sisters


The Wednesday Sisters (Wednesday #1) by Meg Waite Clayton

This was a book club pick. Not my usual picking, but I did enjoy it - I probably enjoy it more now that I am a mum, and probably would have liked it less when I was childless - even though the main theme of the story was more about friendship than motherhood, but motherhood still played a big role.

It started off a little slow... and it covered many years. It was interesting to read what life was like for women back in 1967 in the US. Let's just say I am more suitable to live in the current time :) I did find the ending very touching, and am a bit envious of the friendship these 5 women shared. (Don't get me wrong, I do have some great, close friends, but it's not quite like so :) Maybe if we start doing what these women did every Wednesday? :) )

I just found out there is a sequel called the Wednesday Daughters that just came out - that talked about well, the daughters of the Wednesday Sisters :) Not sure if I'd read or not, but I'd at least want to google spoilers when more reviews come in hehe!

Somewhere between 3 to 3.5 Stars... settled on 3 Stars because it didn't quite draw me in like some other books I'd marked as 3.5 recently...

Note - The book was borrowed from the library.

    1. I enjoy the book club - our opinions vary quite a lot so I am always curious what the others would say!

  2. I didn't know there was a sequel to this book! That's great. I still have to read this one - it's on my wishlist.

    1. The sequel just came out, like last week! I just happened to come across it as I added this book on Goodreads.

  3. This one has been on my to read list but I haven't been in the right mood for it. I like the idea of the sequel too, intriguing....

    1. If you are in the mood of some women friendship book, then this is a fast read. Another aspect I didn't mention were the historical events in the US mentioned in the book (in the last 60's and early 70's) - feminism, racism etc.
