U.S president and first lady reveal their best book for this year

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, one of the most famous First Couples in American history, have opened up about their favorite books for 2015.

People Magazine reported that the president, a famous bibliophile, favorite book of 2015 is Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff, a novel that explores the key to a great marriage from two different perspectives.

The novelist Lauren Groff, learning of his choice, tweeted: “I just died, came back to life, read again, died again. That’s it, I retire.”

Groff later told Buzzfeed: “Never, even in my most grandiose dreams, did I think the president would read my book, let alone like it. I wish he could run for a third term.”

Fates and Furies, already a New York Times bestseller, was picked as Amazon.com’s book of the year, with the Internet retailer describing it as”dazzling” last month.

Topping the First Lady's book list is another portrait of a marriage, The Light of the World, Elizabeth Alexander's memoir about the sudden death of her husband.
