I wanted to keep Don forever 😍


The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion 🦞

This book was recommended to me so many times and after reading I can completely understand why.

The story follows 39 year old Don Tillman as he tries to find love.

“Love isn't an exact science - but no one told Don Tillman.”

It’s very rare that you come across a literary character that you want to pluck from the pages and be friends with in real life. Don is so quirky, pure and painfully honest that I just couldn’t help but love him! I adored reading about his unique thought processes and experiencing the world through Don’s perspective.

The book ticked a lot of boxes for me. There were some genuine laugh out loud moments and the romantic plot was a pleasure to unfold. I do admit that I also loved reading about Dons mishaps and social awkward moments. He’s a man with no filter and no malice. I’d dread him calculating my age and BMI though 🙈

I loved this book, it was a real joy to read ☺️
