What We’re Reading: Clutch: A Novel by Lisa Becker

POSTED BY doug ON October 12, 2015

what we're reading clutch a novel by lisa becker


I’m in novelist Lisa Becker’s fan club. I’ve read her Click Trilogy, a contemporary romance series comprised of Click: An Online Love Story, Double Click, and Right Click. Obviously, I jumped at the chance to read her latest, clutch: a novel.

Chick lit is my favorite genre to read after the kids go to bed, and I can just jump into someone else’s life and not think (after a long day in the office and being mommy.) Becker always delivers a fun, feisty novel that I typically read in just two or three nights.

about the book

clutch a novel lisa becker

Clutch chronicles the dating misadventures of Caroline Johnson, a single purse designer (who got her MBA from Harvard Business and now lives in LA).

Caroline goes through a series of unsuccessful romantic relationships she compares to various styles of handbags – the “Hobo” starving artist, the “Diaper Bag” single dad, the “Briefcase” intense businessman, etc.

With her best friend, bar owner Mike, by her side, the overly-accommodating Caroline drinks Chardonnay, puts her heart on the line, and endures her share of unworthy suitors.

At times a bit predictable, I loved every chapter—and could surely see Katherine Heigl and James Marsden playing the lead roles if it became a chick flick.

Book vs Movie: The Longest Ride

POSTED BY doug ON April 22, 2015

By Paxton Kelly, @PaxtonKelly3 Rarely am I the type of person who strongly favors books over film adaptations and vice versa. I’m one of the fortunate souls who can separate an adapted film from the book it’s based off and not go into shock when the storylines don’t match up precisely. While the character names and […]
