    Nia Vardalos

    Top Ten Books

    Nia Vardalos rose to fame with the release in 2002 of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Writing, a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, and a Screen Actors Guild Award. She is also a best-selling author — in 2013 Vardalos wrote “Instant Mom” about her experience adopting her daughter. Of the book and its power, she told the New York Times, “almost every day we will get a letter, a tweet, a Facebook post or meet someone who will say, “I read your book, and we have adopted a child.”” 

    Below are Nia Vardalos's favorite books, available to purchase individually or as a set. See the full list...
