Happy books?

Jacqueline & I read a LOT, and lately we're having a hard time finding books that are happy. It seems so many of the books we read are full of bad things, the characters go through all kinds of rough times, and it leaves us sad and discontent.

We'd like to find some books that don't have horrible things happening to the characters, stories that can take us away from the troubles of our own lives and give us a few moments worry-free, where the events are LOL funny and the endings are happy.

We like young adult and fantasy best, and also enjoy dystopian sci fi teen ones, and even the occasional romance lit. Some of our favorites have been:And some we're thinking about getting are:Have you got any recommendations? Any books along these lines that you read & loved?

A Note from the Universe

Always speak of the past, gratefully.

Of the future, excitedly.

And of the present, Bunny, with bobbing eyebrows and a Cheshire grin.

Spiritual politics, baby -

Wishcasting Wednesday

What do you wish to say yes to?

Right at this moment, I am wishing I could say yes to the kids more.  They don't ask for much, but when they do, I don't want to have to say no because we can't afford it.  Being able to say yes to visiting far-away friends and relatives, taking them out to eat, or shopping... these shouldn't be such difficult things to provide and it kills me when they ask and then go away sad, or worse mad, because we've had to say no.

You can be a maker of magic and a tender of wishes. It’s easy. Answer the wish prompt on your blog and then add a direct link to your post in the box [at the link] below. Support wishes by visiting other participants, leaving a comment saying “As (insert name) wishes for her/himself, so I wish for her/him also.” It’s that simple. There is great power in wishing together.
