This one was a tough one. I had to go back and consult my Listmania list of books I’d read last year to even begin to think about something I’d read that actually made me laugh out loud. I knew it right away when I saw Fannie Flagg’s I Still Dream About You.
This is the first and only book I’ve ever read by Fannie Flagg, although I loved the movie version of Fried Green Tomatoes. Kathy Bates!!
You can read my full review of the book from last November here! But it’s the story of a real estate agent who is ready to off herself. She starts meticulously getting everything in order to go, but things keep happening or getting in the way causing her to have to delay her own death.
Flagg is well known for her good ole Southern humor, and she certainly didn’t disappoint here. Some of the scenes and one-liners definitely had me smiling and laughing out loud. What a feel good book!
It takes a lot to get me to literally laugh out loud, and this book did the trick.
