Which, let’s face it, is a lot of the time.
These eight books aren’t self-help books or anything like that, they are just really lovely books, with amazing illustrations and photographs, or unusual stories. They are books that you can escape into, even if it’s just for ten minutes and you still have to clean the bathroom when you come out again.
I’ve chosen each of these because I think they are the perfect books to dip into when you need a bit of cheering up. With this in mind, I’ve taken a picture of a page inside each, to give you an idea of what you might find. Each title is a clickable link though, in case you want to find out more or see the front cover.
(Although you know you should never judge a book by its cover right?)
