BOOKS READ IN OCTOBER 2016
Rankings are out of 5⭐️s.
- •A Man Called Ove ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I loved it. The first person narrative is spot on. There were turns of phrase at which I marveled. Heartwarming too.
- •Heir of Fire ⭐️⭐️⭐️I loved the first two books in the series, but for some reason it took me two months to get through this one. Several more characters and new locations made it harder to follow.
- •Britt-Marie was Here ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️So this is the second book this month I've read by Fredrick Backman. He writes beautiful characters and beautiful turns of phrase and his stories can both wreck you and fill you with hope. I can't wait to read his third book.
- •All the Single Ladies ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️A sociological and historical examination of the role of women, specifically single women, in society. I have never identified with a book so much. So many times it felt like the author was recording my own thoughts and a few times I even said out loud, "Exactly!" or "Yes!" Being part of a population that has historically been a bit outcast in society, reading this felt like I was finally being accepted.
