Hi @Nadi I’m very sorry to hear that you have been so unwell the past year and very sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing.
Like @Dory65 I loved the No.1 Ladies Detective Agency books, they are light and lovely and funny. Also not too big and heavy to hold as well. (I have books 1, 2 and 3 if you would like me to post them to you?) I’ve also read A Man Called Ove, which I found a bit of a slog at the beginning but it’s worth persevering and it is a lovely book. (also happy to post to you or anyone else) I also enjoyed Jojo Moyes, The Giver of Stars.
My sister in law recommended some lovely books for me when I was having my chemo as I couldn’t concentrate on anything too heavy and I didn’t want to read anything that was too negative. I haven’t read any of these yet but her other recommendations were:
Drusilla Modjeska Second half first; The Museum of Modern Love; Tapestry of Fortunes Elizabeth Berg; Mr Rosenblum’s List Natasha Solomons; The One hundred year old man who climbed out the window and disappeared Jonas Jonasson; A Tiny bit marvellous Dawn French; The Elegance of the Hedgehog Muriel Barbery; Kissed by a Deer a Tibetan Odyssey Margi Gibb; The Festival by the Sea June Loves; Cadence Emma Ayres Travels with music a memoir; Under Story Inga Simpson; Mr Wigg Iga Simpson
I also loved Schitts Creek – it saved me during all the chemo induced sleepless nights – I thought it was so funny – each show only goes for about 25 minutes and it doesn’t take any concentration
All the best
