Fat Fridays by Judith Keim (Tuesday Intros & Teaser Tuesdays)

Judith Keim's Fat Fridays is a pleasant and easy read about a group of five women who get together for weekly lunches. They share their highs and lows and lots of delicious sounding meals along the way (well, except for Tiffany who eats mostly salads). The chapters alternate between the stories of the five with most of the bulk of the book focusing on Sukie. Personally, I think I would have rather had more about Lynn because her life is far more dramatic and compelling, but I have a feeling that it wouldn't come across as pleasant and easy had that been the case! There's a second book, Sassy Saturdays, that I'll definitely be picking up. I've spent so many Fridays with these five that I need to know what they get up to on Saturdays!

"First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros" is from the first paragraph or two of a book being read now (or in the future) and is hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea. "Teaser Tuesday" at The Purple Booker asks for a random line or two from anywhere in the book currently being read.

  1. Interesting teaser. I like books that take place in the Atlanta vicinity. And your teaser makes me want to know more. My teaser is from a mystery Dead Sleeping Shaman

  9. I love books that center on friendships between women, and this sounds like a good one. As a grandma myself, I'm especially curious about Sukie.
