Top Ten Books to Read if Your Book Group Likes...
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. There is a new subject each week and this week's theme is "Top Ten Books To Read If Your Book Group Likes..."
I have been running two book groups for five years now and while both book groups have their different reading tastes, sometimes we get tired of reading the darker or sadder stories typically considered "book group books" and we need something a little more lighthearted (not that these are all "happy" books).
These are my picks for books that are either lighthearted or have funny/quirky characters
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson
My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She's Sorry by Fredrik Backman
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
The Tower, the Zoo and the Tortoise by Julia Stuart
The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat by Edward Kelsey Moore
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman
Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson
The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce
