My Favorite Books
fiction Books I love
These are some of my all time favorite fiction books
- A Man Called Ove - (Fredrik Backman) This may be my favorite book right now. I spent the first couple chapters unsure if I thought it was awful or great and then, as the story developed, I found myself feeling it is one of the finest books I have ever read. Beautiful, heartwarming, Moving, Funny, Wonderfully written. I love everything by Fredrik Backman!
- My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She's Sorry - (Fredrik Backman) Wasn't sure if this book would live up to how much I loved the first one I read by this author and again, through the first couple of chapters, I had my doubts. But again, as the story developed, I found myself falling in love with this book. Beautiful, heartwarming, Moving, Funny, Wonderfully written. I love everything by Fredrik Backman!
- The Rosie Project - (Don Tillman) I love this book. The main character is autistic (or strongly on the Asperger's scale). His family are Vietnamese immigrants to the U.S. and when it becomes clear he will never find a wife of his own, his mother returns to Vietnam to find him a wife the old way. She brings home a young woman desperate for a better life and the two of them begin a relationship marked with misunderstandings and hidden truths but underscored by what quickly turns into a true love for each-other. This author has written a number of other books about other people in this same family of Vietnamese immigrants and often including a primary character with Asperger's Syndrome.) Looks like there are now two more in the series!
