Hey, another non-review from me. Imagine that!   I've been waiting for weeks (six of them, to be exact) for my turn in line at Overdrive to read this book. My number was finally called yesterday, just in time for my book meeting last night! Imagine the luck?! Grrrr. Guess that's what I get for being...

I don't know what to say about this book really. It's the kind of story that makes you feel like a kid again. It filled up my heart.

This book is now on my favorites-of-all-time list. Honestly one of the best books I will ever read.

If there is any thing about Fredrik Backman books that I want to talk about, its his characters he created. My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry is filled with colorful characters. Weirdos in their own way, witty to some. And for a time, they are memorable in a simple design. Sadly, I can...

This is how you end a year of reading great books. I started this one a while ago, but my audiobook expired and I had to get back on the waiting list, so I was eager to finish when I finally got it back. Having read the three of these slightly out of order, I probably liked this one even more, becau...

This book was absolutely magical! I can't even articulate how much I enjoyed it and my absolute love for the characters especially the lead character, seven year old Elsa. The grandmother was fantastic as well she made me wish so badly that she had been my Grammy when I was a little girl so I could ...

Elsa's grandmother is different. She's highly intelligent, politically incorrect, incredibly irascible, and occasionally violent. (She puts me very much in mind of Diana Trent from the Brit com Waiting for God.) Although Elsa is aware of Granny's rule-breaking eccentricities, they don't bother her a...

❝Because all seven-year-olds deserve superheroes. And whoever disagrees with that needs their head examined.❞ And Elsa's superhero is her grandmother... Now don't go and picture a sweet grandmother that bakes cookies and calls you 'Dear'. Nope. However, this is the most awesome grandmother there ev...

If you don't like people, they can't hurt you. Almost-8-year-olds who are often described as "different" learn that very quickly. That lesson was impressed upon Elsa pretty hard, which has left her with a very small group of people that she likes (but, like most 7 year-olds, she really wants to like...

I bought “My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She’s Sorry” because the title intrigued me and anyway, who could resist the little girl and the scarf-wearing dog on the cover? At the start of the novel Elsa is seven and her grandmother, Elsa’s personal super-hero, is seventy-seven. The two of them ...
