Shoe Addicts Anonymous week 1

I'm in a few book clubs. One of them is an online(blog) book club. It's the first if you want to join in head on over to Queen of the bookcase and get on it!
Our first book is Shoe Addicts Anonymous by Beth Harbison.
Each week we are given a number of chapters to read and a prompt to discus it!

Week 1 Prompt: Choose your favorite character so far. Go online and find a shoe that this character would wear and explain why you chose her and that particular shoe.
So far I don't really have a favorite. I like them all for different reasons.
At first I hated Lorna. She was way too deep in not caring about her financial state.......but she's really grown on me! She works hard as a waitress but blows it all before knocking on her debt.
I could picture her buying these just for the name and saying "they're black, I can wear them with anything" while trying her hardest to justify it in her head.

I think she's going to grow a lot in the book and I'm excited to see what she learns from all of this!

I hope she starts to get her act together, because she is a character I think most of us could relate with. Cute shoe choice!

Thanks for participating!

Totally agree she would justify it!

I think Lorna could justify just about anything, based on what I've read so far!
