10 Feel-Good Books

March 26th, 2015 by JasonBurley Leave a reply »

One question that we get asked at the bookshop, possibly more often than any other, is to recommend a heartwarming book; one that makes you feel better just by reading the first page. Now, since our natural proclivities tend to draw us towards books that trace the darker themes (armegeddon scenarios, suicide pacts – that sort of thing), we find this question a difficult one to answer.

In order to be better prepared we have put together a list of ten books guaranteed to warm even the stoniest of hearts. We hope you enjoy them.

And that the world doesn’t end before you get a chance to finish them…
