The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
The Rosie Project is a little removed from what I normally choose to read but after several very "heavy" novels and a slew of textbooks, I needed something light-hearted, fun, and mindless. Graeme Simsion delivers exactly that! Main character, Don, is the reader's version of Sheldon from Big Bang Theory. He's brilliant academically but socially, he's a train wreck (albeit a hilarious, lovable, heart wringing one). Valentine's Day is coming so if you're looking for a G-rated romantic comedy that isn't too sappy sweet, I highly recommend The Rosie Project. There's no mystery to how things will turn out in the end but I was still up late into the night enjoying Rosie and Don's journey and refortifying my belief in true love in spite of ourselves.
