Funny books to escape inside right now
It’s a gloomy time all around so I’m here to suggest some light-hearted, happy(ish?) books. I know we all are going through a lot and saying the same things to each other every day just makes us all feel numb with uncertainty. It’s important to stay sane in these trying times and I do that by staying away from my mobile phone as much as I possibly can. Because being on the phone automatically will mean being on social media, which is the last place we should be on right now. So, I have turned to books. And here I go sharing my list of nice, feel-good books which may help take away a little bit of the pain away and allow you to escape in a less sinister setting.
A Year in Provence (Vintage Departures)
Who hasn't dreamed, on a mundane Monday or frowzy Friday, of chucking it all in and packing off to the south of France…
A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle- I suggested this on my list of quarantine reads last year when the world had shut down for the first time. This one is a real laugh riot, filled with beautiful scenery and delicious food.
This is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay- The writer is a former doctor and this book is a compilation of his diary entries he kept while in service. I’m almost done with this and it’s really good. It’s sometimes laugh-out-loud funny and other times really sad. But it’s an important read right now when our healthcare workers are literal heroes, like they always are to be honest.
