Balancing Acts

Fishman, Zoe.  Balancing Acts.

I actually read this in March, but the book tour schedule is for April 5.  The story covers a 6 week span in the lives of 4 friends who attended college together and unexpectedly reunite at a college get together.

Charlie has recently opened a yoga studio and recruits the other three for a 6 week beginner class on Saturdays.  Each of the young women undergoes substantial changes as a result of their renewed friendships.

Fiction.  Chic Lit.  2010. 365 pages.

  3. Trish - Friendships are important; we all need support at times.

    Lisa - I liked the premise, but found the novel a bit simplistic, almost formulaic. However, I think most of the readers on the tour enjoyed it.

  4. I figured this one might be a bit fluffy but I like the premise! I still can't do yoga as I'm recovering still from my health issues but hopefully will get the ok to get back to it soon! I miss it.

    How's your yoga practice coming along?

  7. Sometimes books like this really work for me but other times, not so much. I think a lot depends on my mood.

  9. iliana - It is a bit fluffy, but I liked the premise as well. The yoga sections, however, were quite different from my experiences.

    My practice is going well (although I've been a little slack this last week). Hope you will be back to classes soon, Iliana!

    Kailana - No, this one is probably not your kind of read. Not really mine either. :0

    LF - I know, mood has a lot to do with certain books!

    Aths - Hope you enjoy it when you do get your hands on it! Not my favorite genre, but I was interested in the yoga aspect.

  12. I read this book too and it's pretty good. It's ironic that it took Charlie to bring the women together for each of their life-changing moments.
