About a Boy, Nick Hornby
Such a charming read, and I thought better than the movie. I mean, duh.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Mark Haddon
Fans of Atypical will love our completely literal protagonist here. Fun fact—they turned this into a broadway play and it was brilliant.
Counting By 7s, Holly Goldberg Sloan
Heartwarming book, full of kind, caring people who will restore your faith in our species. Seriously, everyone should read this book.
A Man Called Ove, Friedrik Backman
This is Where I Leave You, Jonathan Tropper
Real characters, saying really funny things. Siblings who really love each other, even though they bitch and whine and snark constantly. It’s real, it’s funny, it’s lovely.
The Rosie Project, Don Tillman
Smart, funny love story with an ending that will make you grin like an idiot.
Red White and Royal Blue, Casey McQuiston
If Golden Retrievers were books, they would be this book.
Riley Thorn and the Dead Guy Next Door
Funny, sexy, charming. These are the books Janet Evanovich should have written.
Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Jenny Lawson
Full disclosure that I listened to the audiobook of this, read by the author. But I laughed so hard that I had to stop my car. More than once.
The House in the Cerulean Sea, TJ Klune
Everything Lucy says.
