When you are nervous to switch on the news because the whole world seems to be descending into chaos, fiction becomes an escape route, you get to enter into different worlds from your own and lose yourself in someone else’s story which naturally has a happy ending.
We could all probably do with a bit of an escape this week so here are my favourite feel-good reads to help. These are books I’ve re-read when I needed a pick-me-up:
Anna and The French Kiss – Stephanie Perkins
I Capture The Castle – Dodie Smith
Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen
Bridget Jones’s Diary – Helen Fielding
On The Island – Tracey Garvis Graves
And if you’re in the UK and you need another fiction escape my debut novel is just 99p on Amazon Kindle now!
