Book #2: A Girl's Guide to Hunting and Fishing by Melissa Bank

This was an enjoyable book to pass a few hours. Some people have called it 'chick lit' but I wouldn't classify it as that. Then again, maybe I don't know from chick lit since I don't read many books in this genre. Or maybe, it expands the definition of the genre.

The book is divided into a set of longer and shorter short stories, revolving around key themes in the life of Jane - first seeing her brother's romances and later, going through a series of her own. Throughout the book, she tries to define herself as a person, a definition which gets strengthened through her relationships or totally confused. 

It's not the greatest piece of literature, but enjoyable, so I give it a 3/ 5 or maybe a 3.5.
