Opening Belle

Although I am way behind on meeting my reading goal for this year, I’m just going to keep enjoying my books and not really try to catch up. I’ve also been slacking on posting my reads. I finished Opening Belle by Maureen Sherry a couple weeks ago.

It was a good read but not great. In my opinion there were too many storylines. They were semi-related storylines, but it was just too much going on. The main character is a woman trying to have it all – work in a man-filled world of finance and keep a house and two children. She’s also trying to work out some kinks in her marriage while being thrown into a working relationship with an ex. Although I appreciate this story and the details of gross inequality in the working world, the main character was a little disappointing to me. Although she was doing her best, which I can appreciate, she’s a little flaky at times.

Overall, this is a great, easy, and empowering read. For once I actually think the movie – that Reese Witherspoon is working on – might catch me more than the book did. Enjoy!
