    First, I commend your list. Very varied.

    Second, I would like to share that I lost my father 10 years ago when I was 24. It was horribly difficult to cope with and I still find I miss my dad even now 🙁 I suppose we never really get over the loss of someone we love deeply.

    Third, I loved a Man called Ove. The book warmed my soul and made me wish I could meet Ove 🙂 I did remember my dad alot too when I read this book. Both share traits like stubbornness, hardworking, steadfast, loyalty and both are a bit cranky too 🙂

    I hope you continue to heal and carry your dad in your 💓 He lives on in you forever.

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Chrisanta.🙂 I appreciate you reaching out to me and sharing about your Dad. The last few years have been a struggle. I often read and hear that time heals…. it never does.

      Ditto on a Man called Ove. He reminded me so much of my father.

      Thanks again. Sending you love ❤.

    That’s an awesome list. I want to read A Man Called Ove for so long.
    And so sorry for your loss. I can’t even imagine how it must feel to lose one of your family members.

      Thank you for your kind words, Sim. Losing a parent makes you grow up, no matter what age you are.

      I highly recommend A Man Called Ove. Perhaps someday I might re-read it when I have the courage.

      I am glad you did, Vartika. Losing a parent is one reality we do not want to face, not matter what age we are. I hope the books are able to help you as much as they helped me to cope. Stay strong.

    […] times like this, we all have our coping mechanisms. As a firm believer in bibliotherapy, I always turn to books. And what better book to pick up than one that talks of hope and human […]
