Hello, fellow book lovers!
Today I want to talk about a little book that I think everybody should read, especially now that the whole world is learning how to live with this awful pandemia. Sometimes it is difficult to stay positive, happy, and smiley. The book is How to Be Happy, by Eva Woods.
The reason why I think people should read this book is because it is an uplifting story. It shows us how, in the midst of the most terrible events, we can still find reasons to smile and celebrate life.
A friend gifted me this book when I was going through a very rough time. I didn’t even notice how depressed I was feeling until I saw the title of this book and then I noticed the expression on my friend’s face. Don’t let the title fool you; it’s not a self-help book. It’s a really entertaining novel that will put a smile on your face, and that’s why I think you should read it.
Do you know of any other books that are perfect to make the reader feel good? I would like to hear your recommendations in the comments. And if you have read the book I am recommending here, I would love to know your opinion.

Annie has been sad for so long that she’s forgotten how to be any other way. Until she meets Polly.
Polly is everything that Annie is not. She’s colourful, joyful, happy. Because if recent events have taught Polly anything, it’s that your time is too short to waste a single day.
Polly has one hundred days to help Annie find happiness. Annie’s convinced it’s impossible, but so is saying no to Polly. And on an unforgettable journey, Annie begins to realise that maybe, just maybe, there’s still colour to be found in the world.
But then it becomes clear that Polly’s about to need her new friend more than ever…and Annie will have to decide once and for all whether letting others in is a risk worth taking.
