Super Six Sunday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by the lovely ladies at Bewitched Bookworms 🙂
Today’s topic is Books That Warmed My Heart. My list is pretty eclectic; it’s a mix of Adult Fiction, YA Fiction, Children’s Fiction, Classic Fiction and Non-Fiction. That’s essentially my reading tastes in a nutshell! Allow me to recommend you six books I’ve read that warmed my heart 🙂
- Attachments by Rainbow Rowell: Everything about this book warms my heart – Lincoln, Beth and Jennifer’s friendship, Lincoln, the emails, did I mention Lincoln? A heartwarming book from start to finish.
- Kissing Under the Mistletoe by Bella Andre: I’ve read all the of the books so far in Andre’s The Sullivans Series, but I found this one to be particularly heartwarming. It was such a sweet story of how the parents met, and I loved that part of the book was set in Italy, as it reminded me so much of my family’s hometown 🙂
- Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta: This is the first of Marchetta’s books and for a very long time it was her only. I’ve always been able to relate to Josie’s heritage as an Australian girl in an Italian family, and that part of the story has always been particularly heartwarming to me.
- The Railway Children by E. Nesbit: This is a book from my childhood that’s always warmed my heart, the characters are just so sweet! I reckon it’s been a good 15 years since I’ve read it, but I’m sure I’d find it just as heartwarming today as I did all those years ago.
- Little Women by Louisa May Alcott: This book is a classic, and for good reason. The March and Lawrence families are so kind and generous and loving, and I think that’s why this book has been heartwarming to me since the first time I read it.
- Marley & Me by Josh Grogan: This book actually made me laugh out loud, many times, which is rare for me! I’ll find things amusing but I don’t usually laugh when I read a funny book. The relationship between Marley and the Grogan family is so sweet and heartwarming.
There you have it! Any books on my list that take your fancy? What books would you recommend?
