Book Review: Penny Pinchers Club
For possibly the first time I'm reviewing a novel!! :) I don't usually read novels . . . I don't know why (I'm very introspective as you can tell :p).
I'm much more of a non-fiction reader, I LOVE a book that can inspire me to do something, take some action, whether it's making greener choices, going organic, gardening or organizing I LOVE a good How To: usually this doesn't take me into the fiction side of the library with the exception of The Penny Pinchers Club.
I think The Penny Pinchers Club, by Sarah Strohmeyer bridges this gap, it inspired me to watch what I was spending money on, and showed new ways to save money while still being entertaining. The Situation Kat, the main character, finds herself in is a little bit of a stretch but the characters are so believable that you could almost imagine them in your own day to day life :)
Minus the handsome millionaire trying to marry you . . . I don't know about you but I don't have to many handsome millionaires begging me to marry them.
I think the Penny Pinchers Club is chick lit at it's finest. With the bonus of frugal inspiration, money saving TIPS, and a couple of steamy love scenes thrown in for your enjoyment, or maybe just
mine . . . (oh I hope my mom isn't reading this) (who am I kidding she probably is . . . HI MOM!)
I would definitely pick this one up! Now I'm finally going to bed after staying up well past 2am two nights in a row, reading the penny pinchers club! Geez, I'm a sucker for a good book!
p.s. the book is on sale at Amazon for $6!
like always if you've read anything good in the last little while please let me know, I'm always looking for a great read!
