PHOENIX (3TV/CBS5) -- Olivia’s Book Club finished My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante. Overall, the group didn’t love the highly-acclaimed Italian novel, giving it an average of 3.5 stars. Olivia loved it and is planning on reading the next three of the Neapolitan Series.
Our next pick will be a perfect summer choice: Stay Up With Hugo Best, by Erin Somers. This is a debut novel for Somers, and has already been optioned for a film. The contemporary novel centers on a young writer, June Bloom, and a surprisingly unique relationship that forms between Bloom and and a famous late-night television host, Hugo Best.
