Southern Fried Sushi

Book Club Monday

Starting today, every second Wednesday of the month will be Book Club Wednesday. I belong to a book club at my church and read a lot of really good books that I want to share with you. Reading is relaxing. It takes you to another world, if you’re looking to escape the one you’re in.  Reading is also educational, even for us adults. I can’t tell you the number of things I learn just from reading books.
We read a lot of Christian fiction so that is what most of the Book Club blogs will focus on.
The first Book Club book to be on the blog is Southern Fried Sushi by Jennifer Rogers Spinola. I have to admit, I started this one I had to stop and read a review book. The plots started out very similar and I thought I was going to surely get them mixed up. But after finishing them both I didn’t. While there were a couple of things I wish Spinola had researched a little more for accuracy, I am probably just being picky. No one else may notice.
Here is a summary of the book from Amazon – “Ride the rollercoaster of Shiloh Jacobs’s life as her dreams derail, sending her on a downward spiral from the heights of an AP job in Tokyo to penniless in rural Virginia. Trapped in a world so foreign to her sensibilities and surrounded by a quirky group of friends, will she break through her hardened prejudices before she loses those who want to help her? Can she find the key to what changed her estranged mother’s life so powerfully before her death that she became a different woman—and can it help Shiloh too?”
I did really enjoy the book. I especially enjoy the fact that God was throughout the book and not just plopped in in places so it could be categorized as Christian fiction. This is a great summer read if you’re looking for something with a little bit of meat, but not so deep that it hurts your brain.
