"It's Struck her all at once that dealing with other human beings was an awful lot of work " Back When We Were Grownups by Anne Tyler
.
I finished my Second Anne Tyler book "Back When We Were Grownups yesterday &
I admit that I am rarely drawn to light contemporary, I always expect the adult contemporary books that I read to sort of have a darker twisted element but Anne Tyler is an exception. Her books are simply heartfelt with a realistic depiction of family and life occurrence. A Spool of Blue Thread was a book that I read at the beginning of this year and complete loved. I cared for the simple life of this one family through generations and I decided to pick upΒ β€œBack When We Were Grownups” to sort of seeing if she is still living up to my expectations, even though it didn’t quite reach the other previous book I still got that special feeling through her writing. I highly recommend you give it agoπŸ˜…

Can you recommend any author who writes realistic adult contemporary that mainly focuses on family... Or any other Anne Tyler bookπŸ™

  • leahestleahHave you read Sarah Addison Allen's books? That is probably the only adult contemporary I've ever read, but there are a little bits of fantasy sprinkled in some of her books. I've read all her books though😌, I love them.
  • kenyan_library@leahestleah I just added her books on goodreads they sound really good 🀘 thanks for the recommendation πŸ˜…
