Q is for Queen Quinny Quindlen’s Quilters

Blogging from A to Z

actorAidan Quinn

I first laid eyes on Quinn in 1984 when he played bad boy to Daryl Hannah’s golden girl in the movie Reckless.  He was such a hottie 🙂  I loved him in Benny & Joon (1993) and Legends of the Fall (1994) too.  In both he played big brothers who took that responsibility very seriously.

authorAnna Quindlen

I read Every Last One and liked it quite a lot.  I’ve also read a book of her essays but prefer the fiction.  I’m hoping to read a few more by her this year!  Do you have a favorite Quidlen book that I should start with?

movieThe African Queen, 1951

I cheated a bit with this title, but when I went through the Q movie list there were only two I had seen and neither of them were worthy of any favorite list.  This classic is Katherine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart at their cantankerous best.

bookThe Quilter’s Apprentice by Jennifer Chiaverini

This is the first book in the Elm Creek Quilts series and liked it quite a bit even if I am a failed quilter.  The story of friendship is a heartwarming one and I hope to continue with the series someday.

    For me, all of Qundlen’s novels prior to Rise and Shine were excellent. And Rise and Shine was okay, just not one of my favorites. I can’t comment on the collections of essays because I’m just not a big fan of that type of book. I want just one story in the books I read.

      I’m not a big fan of the essay type books either. I’ve read several over the past year and been underwhelmed by them all. I’m looking forward to reading more of her fiction.
