Details

Not strictly a personal development book but packed full of insight and wisdom, I thought I’d mix things up a bit by putting a fiction book on the menu! I certainly learned a lot from reading it, whilst getting lost in the story.

***Summary***

It’s the smallest things that make the biggest difference.

Annie has been sad for so long that she’s forgotten how to be any other way. She’s trudging miserably through every day, sheer determination keeping her going. Until she meets Polly. Polly is everything that Annie is not. She’s colourful, joyful, happy. Because if recent events have taught Polly anything, it’s that your time is too short to waste a single day.

Polly has 100 days to help Annie find happiness. Annie’s convinced it’s impossible, but so is saying no to Polly. And on an unforgettable journey, Annie begins to realise that maybe, just maybe, there’s still colour to be found in the world. But then it becomes clear that Polly’s about to need her new friend more than ever…and Annie will have to decide once and for all whether letting others in is a risk worth taking.

If you liked Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine or The Keeper of Lost Things, you’ll love How to Be Happy.
