Hey book lovers!
So I’m starting something new this month with #FictionFriday (waits for applause). Basically, every Friday I’ll be posting about a fiction book I think should be on your bookshelf. Maybe even give you a nudge to go out and buy it over the weekend. Who knows?
Starting out our #FictionFriday, I’d like to talk about A Man Called Ove. Y’all, this book hit me hard. It made me feel and you guys know how much I love a book that makes me feel.
A Man Called Ove is all about a curmudgeon (how fun is that word?) who’s world is suddenly invaded by new next door neighbors: a young couple and their two chatty daughters. Told through the budding relationship between Ove and the two girls, we see a man who has felt heartache and had a rough life.
Fredrik Backman fills these pages with sadness and comedy, making it easy to fall in love with the characters. By the end of the book, you’ll look at all the grumpy old men in the world differently.
If you haven’t picked this one up yet, I highly encourage you to check it out! It’s a fast read with a great story.
If you have any recommendations for #FictionFriday, feel free to suggest them here.
