The Friday Night Knitting Club (Friday Night Knitting Club Novels)

The Friday Night Knitting Club - Kate Jacobs This is my very first fiction DNF. It took me forever to read the first half of the book. It was just ok. I wasn't in love with the characters or their stories. I thought Georgia's daughter was annoying. I hated that no one had a healthy relationship with men. Race was also handled in an awkward way.

I have this terrible habit of reading the last few pages of a book when I'm in the middle. I like spoilers sometimes. When it happened with this book, I found out that Georgia dies.

Let me explain something, I generally pretend death doesn't exist in my own life. For some reason, I've been thinking about it a lot lately. Now I can't bring myself to finish the book. Honestly, I'm not that broken up by it. If the last 1/2 of the book was STELLAR, I might only give it 3 stars. As it stands, with half of the book read, I only give it two.

I've read plenty of other books lately where a character dies. I seem to be fine with those. I'm not sure why this particular book and this particular death scene bugs me so much.
