Five Faves: Fiction Books

Here’s a post so you can know a little more about me 😊 I love, love, love to read!  Let me share with you my Five-Faves ~ Fiction Books 📚

1. Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, by Seth Grahame-Smith

lincolnAfter reading this book, I went head-first into my Abraham Lincoln obsession.  That’s because this book combines plenty of reality to spike curiosity, along with a great fictional story.

(And yes, I even loved the movie!)

This book was a wild adventure, and I absolutely loved every twist and turn.

2. Life of Pi, by Yann Martel

pi.jpgNot going to lie, when I read this book, I wasn’t used to literature.  It seemed like it dragged on and on.  But after countless days at sea with Pi, I began to understand the deeper meaning of the story.

And the ending?  I was breathless.

This book is also full of meaningful, quotable lines.

3. The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, by Jonas Jonasson

100 year oldYep, he is 100, and he does exactly what it says in the title.  I would compare this book to Forrest Gump.  Although, being a book, it had more time to truly make some interesting connections.

I laughed, got sad, got happy… it was an incredible story.

Also, I loved an older protagonist.  We don’t see that often.  It’s really a bummer that a lot of times, older people are just put in a book to sacrifice themselves for the younger people (I’m looking at you, zombie apocalypse books).

4. Slow Burn (entire series), by Bobby Adair

slow burnOMFG this series!! 😲 The focus is not always on human relationships.  The zombies range in intelligence, which means that they are a constant problem that the people need to overcome– they are not just background noise.

And the characters?  All pretty damn likeable.  The protagonist has a pretty cool character arc.

It’s the perfect combination of human drama AND zombies.  Not just drama with zombies shuffling in the background…  Now where have we seen that before? 🤔 😝

5. Sway, by Amber McRee Turner

swayThis is a children’s book, and it is very interesting, unique, and sweet.  It digs deep into the relationship between father and daughter, and how far a father will go to show her love.

It also faces that hard topic– that some mothers just simply aren’t fit to be mothers.

This book was such a fun adventure, and also so freaking meaningful.  Choked me up 😭

I’m sure I have missed quite a few that made me laugh, cry, and think for hours after the book was over.  Classics like the Harry Potter series, Lord of the Rings, Fahrenheit 451, Animal Farm… and so many more!

Still, I think I’m pretty happy with my fave five 😉

How about you?  Got any faves?  Got any that you would recommend?  Let me know in the comments 😎 📚

  2. Great list, a few I’d never heard of like Slow Burn – I will definitely be checking that out. Sounds like something I would like.

    My recommendations are:
    Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
    Grass by Sherri B Tepper
    Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan
    Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
    Written in Red by Anne Bishop
    Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop
    (hell, ANY Anne Bishop novel. I love her work!)
