Books are personal. Go to any book club where a group of people read the same book and listen to all the differing opinions.
I used to not like to get suggestions from people about good books because my list of books to read is never ending. But, I’ve found that reading suggestions, brings a variety to the types of books I read that is refreshing.
So whether you want any book suggestions or not, I’m going to put these right here. Up to you. 😉
Beartown by Fredrik Backman. This author also wrote, ‘A Man Called Ove,’ which I disliked enough to not finish it but this book was the opposite. Insightful. Fast moving. It’s about a town in love with hockey.
Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate. I really enjoyed this book and not for the sappy story that it certainly is, but for the description of the young families life on the river. Enchanting.
The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace by Jeff Hobbs. This was a great story that I’m glad I read it. I think of it often.
While reading, I thought the story could have been edited by half and it would have been stronger — it repeated itself too much. I hate that.
But if you have a mind, meet Robert Peace and see his life.
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy. In my attempt to read good books I haven’t read in my lifetime, I occasionally throw in a classic. I was so surprised by the timelessness of his writing and his insights into emotions. Enjoyed this very much.
