One of the first activities I wrote for our Memory Makers Self-Care Edition was "Read a book". I have always loved reading - I started reading books pretty much non-stop with Trixie Belden back when I was 8 or 9 and just haven't stopped.
So here is a list of 5 feel good books I've read (kind of) recently. I'd love to hear what you're reading at the moment, or any books you can recommend - just let me know in the comments!
1. The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
Don is getting married and has designed a 16 page questionnaire to help him find the perfect wife.
2. Anything by Kate Morton
Stories that combine history and current times, family dramas and love stories. It has been a while since I've read one of her books, but I always enjoy them!
3. Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal
20-something Nikki takes a job teaching creative writing to widows at her local temple and learns about the lives and thoughts of the widows, and the secrets of her community.
4. The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper by Phaedra Patrick
On the one year anniversary of his wife's death, Arthur finds a gold charm bracelet in her belongings that he has never seen before. He sets out to find the story of each charm and learns about his wife's secret past.
5. Saving Missy by Beth Morrey
After a chance encounter in a park, lonely 79-year-old Missy Carmichael is offered a second chance in life.
