I cannot believe that it is 4 years ago I read this book!!!!

May 2015:

I used to despise chick lit books. “Not up to my standard,” I thought before I stumbled over Anna Adams and Scarlett Thomas and I enjoyed reading them so much that I grab one every now and then. My preferred genres are still poetry, sci-fi and fantasy but to be a versatile reader I need to branch out every now and then :-).

One of them I grabbed last week from the library and the only reason was the title: “The Year of Taking Chances” just sounded to exciting that I had to take it with me. Three women meet at a new years party and decide that this year will be the year of taking chances. And it looks they have to…

It is written by Lucy Diamond who also writes children’s book which you can find under the name Sue Mongredien. Lucy Diamond is her pen name. I haven’t read much of the book yet so I won’t say more and just jump into the teaser:

After a gloomy few months in Larkmead, it had been energizing to flex her creative muscles again; she’d forgotten how much she enjoyed design work.
