BBBC: The Rosie Project

The beginning of a new month means a new book review for the Beauty Blogger Book Club!  For the month of November, Ashley chose The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion.  I hadn't heard of this book but it must be very popular because all the copies at my local library were checked out with multiple holds waiting on them.

Don Tillman is a professor of genetics who struggles with social skills.  He decides to find a wife and, in order to do so, designs The Wife Project.  The Wife Project consists of a survey and process in which he hopes to find a compatible wife.  Rosie enters the picture and Don easily decides she is not wife material but is interested in her own quest for her biological father.  As the pair collaborate on The Father Project, Don finds that change might not be such a bad thing.

I enjoyed this book even if the ending was a bit predictable.  I love the show Big Bang Theory and Don Tillman has many similar mannerisms and characteristics of Sheldon Cooper.  His social mistakes are entertaining but, at the same time, you are rooting for him to work through them and prove what a great guy he is to Rosie.

For the month of December, I chose the book Maybe in Another Life  by Taylor Jenkins Reid.  I have read another book by this author and really enjoyed it.

Check out what the other bloggers thought of this month's book:

What have you read lately?  I'm always looking for suggestions!
