The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion


If you and I could sit and talk about books, I'd tell you that without a doubt,
 Southern Fiction is my favorite genre and I adore everything written by Fannie Flagg.

I just finished 
The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion
and  enjoyed every minute of it.

Have you read it yet?


I don't want to reveal too much but you should know that Mrs. Sookie Poole of Point Clear, Alabama found out that she wasn't who she thought she was. This led to meeting people from her distant past, learning some interesting history,  lots of soul searching, and some hilarious moments along the way.

I enjoyed this much just as much as the rest of Fannie's books.

If you've read it, let me know what you thought.
If not, get a copy. :)

I've never read anything by Fannie Flagg but guessing from her popularity, I should! Thanks for the info.

I have a stack of books waiting, but I am going to take your word for it and add this to my list. Anyone with the name of Sookie is worth meeting.

I don't think I have read any of Fannie Flagg's books! This looks intresting but I have such a hard time finding tome to read.

Penny @ The Comforts of Home said...

I like Fannie Flagg, but have not read this book. It is going on the list!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love Fannie's books! I have this one on reserve for my Kindle through my library. It's been a great way for me to get books to read when the weather was too bad to go out. Glad to hear you liked it.

Putting this on my Amazon wish list - thanks for the review!

I wish I was more of a book reader but I am not. So, I haven't read this book. It does sound like something I would like though since I do live in the south. I could probably relate to some of it. LOL!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

I was just thinking I need to find a new book to read. I'll definitely give this a try. Thanks for the recommendation! I know you're not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but the cover actually makes me really want to read it. :)

Jann Olson said...

This sounds like it's right up my alley. I am going to see if I can get it on my kindle. The last one I read was about a Southern gal. It was called Dixie something. Darn, gone blank. Anyway, it was super cute!
hugs,
Jann

Oh, I love her books and I think I've read most of them....but not this one! I'll look for it! I know I will like it! Sweet hugs!

Art @ Home said...

I'll be reading this one soon…..I just got it not too long ago (Fannie Flagg is from Birmingham, and I got a signed copy).

Laurie Ritchey said...

I didn't know she had a new book out.
I have read all of her other books and LOVE them. Her characters are so endearing and the story lines often have me laughing out loud.

I have read all of Fannie's books and just love them. I have this one and I'm looking forward to reading it as soon as I finished Lisa Patton's Southern as a Second Language. I highly recommend Ms. Patton's books, too.

Yes, this looks like a fun read! I'm not familiar with the author, but that's what happens when you live under a rock, in California.
Cheers!,
