I'm slightly late for this one this week but anyway here it is: This week's topic is feel good books. Books which provoke warm, fuzzy feelings. Random ramblings created this meme so check her blog out.
Now onto my feel good picks:
1) Winnie the pooh - who doesn't love this loveable little bear. Even a cynic could sit down and read this book and still be enchanted.
2) The Notebook - Ah, this book just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy - Allie and Noah are just great, their love suffers but stays strong and lasts the test of time.
3) Charlie and The Chocolate Factory - there really isn't anything else to say.
4) The Rescue - this one's a bit soap opera-ish but still a really heartwarming story.
5) Alice in Wonderland - slightly trippy but what's not to love?
6) Hairy Maclary - I worshipped this book as a child and the author is from New Zealand. The language is just so flowy and Hairy is cute.
7) The Cat in the Hat - Dr. Seuss was a genius - his language was so rhythmic, delicious and funny.
8) Emma - what would a list of feel good books be without a little Jane Austen? Jane Austen's writing makes me wish for a time past - a time with flowy, romantic language, gentlemen and the lost art of the letter.
9) Mary Poppins - I always wished for a nanny like her (not that I had a nanny to begin with) - some singing, motherly figure who'd fix all the familial problems.
10) Charlotte's Web - Wilber was so super cute, Charlotte wise just a gorgeous book.
