Real life has been way too real of late, so I need some lovely distracting things with happy endings. Think light and fluffy - chick lit, travel books or memoirs, inspiring and uplifting. I like Santa Montefiore (have read almost all of her stuff), foodie books, Morgan Llywelyn (again have read just about all of it), Donna Leon, and Janet Evanovich. France, Ireland, Italy, in fact, Europe in general would be good locales for the stories or tropical islands (think Margaritaville) would be good, too.
Don't get this!
While I want inspiring and uplifting, please no religious books. No horror, goth, apocalyptic, scary, or creepy and anything where children or small animals are harmed/killed is just right out.
Colleen_L_McDonald's Secret Santa is calm. Help calm pick the right book.
Daniel.Estes: My wife would recommend the Crazy Rich Asians series. I haven't read it myself. She says it fun and smart. (Tue, 20 Nov 2018 15:28:55 -0500)
holly_golightly: I can't see your library, but I recently read The Vacationers by Emma Straub which I think fits what you're looking for nicely (set on the island of Mallorca!) (Tue, 20 Nov 2018 18:09:33 -0500)
jamieschecter: Girl Waits with Gun by Amy Stewart is a fun read. It's a fictional retelling of the first female sheriff in the U.S.A. and has a great focus on sister relationsihps. (Fri, 30 Nov 2018 23:53:14 -0500)
