By all accounts, we really should have died
What are your favorite books with happy endings?
You get to define what "happy" means, and I know that very very few books end 100% happy (because that would probably be kind of boring), but I am in need of light-ish winter break reading and also I'm just tired of books that end in either gruesome death or inescapable misery for everyone involved. Help, please?
Ohh, I love Orson Scott Card. I will most definitely check this out.
middlemarch! (or my second favorite, a far shorter one: jane eyre.) but you've probably read both of those, oui?
Middlemarch. Oy. Dorothea kind of makes me crazy.
Is Middlemarch really a happy ending? I don't know ... (certainly not for Lydgate, and I dearly love him.)
For some reason, I have not read Jane Eyre. I will do that, immediately.
My favorite book with a happy ending would have its impact spoiled if I told you that it has a happy ending, but you've probably already read it anyway.
Actually, it's on that list of top 100 books meme thing, and you bolded and underlined it, so you've definitely read it. Unless you lied.
Other than that, I can't think of anything I've read recently that's worth recommending and has a happy ending.
You could try Changing Planes, by Ursula K. LeGuin. It doesn't technically have a happy ending, but that's because of the format, not because it's unhappy. It's a lot like Einstein's Dreams, if you've ever read that.
On the bright side, I'm now the girlfriend of a sex god.
Is this a recommendation, or just an observation about life?
This is a recommendation. Very teen girl reading. No substance. But completely hilarious.
When can I see you? I have finals until Thursday, and then next week I'll be in the mountains from Sunday-Tuesday and after that, nothing.
Tonight? Pretty Boy maybe? Or do you have too much studying to do?
