If you liked MWF Seeking BFF, you might like…
Well, it depends.
If you liked MWF because you love project/year-of memoirs:
You’ll absolutely love the hilarious AJ Jacobs. The Know-It-All, about his quest to read the entire Encyclopedia Brittanica, is a book that made me think, “Wait, I should be doing this kind of writing, too.” I loved The Year of Living Biblically, too, and I can’t wait to read his latest, Drop Dead Healthy, in which he spends two years trying to be the healthiest man alive.
If you liked MWF Seeking BFF, because you love books about friendship:
Try The Girls from Ames by the great Jeffrey Zaslow. This true story about the 40-year friendship between 11 best friends gets at the heart of why we need our besties, and will make you laugh, cry, and pick up the phone to call your oldest pal. Zaslow, who tragically died in a car accident earlier this year, portrays female friendship with an admiration and understanding you don’t always get from men.
If you liked MWF Seeking BFF because you think we could be friends:
Read Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling. When she starts talking about her obsession with fad diets or why men take so long to put their shoes on, you’ll forget you aren’t besties already. I’m totally still waiting for her to call me for our BFF date.
Warning: These women are all much cooler than I. But if you think we could be friends, you’d definitely want to be friends with them.
Do any of you MWF Seeking BFF readers out there have other similar suggestions? I’m always looking to add to my reading pile!
