    "In terms of books that will make you purely happy, Crooked Little Heart almost fits the bill. While the reader may feel happy by the book's end, the path to get there is often wrought with anxious suspense, heartbreak, and emotional pain. The book establishes its tone, message, and method in its complexity of emotion and realistic presentation of the annals of family life."

    "The Woman in White is a novel that is both dark and uplifting as it covers the sinister intrigues of Sir Percival Glyde. I especially like the book's cover art which is a perfect summation of the book itself. This book had me unable to put it down on multiple chapters, it really intense at times."

    "I have had a hard time with depression lately which lead me to look for books that would help me to become happy. A Dirty Job (Grim Reaper) really helped me to put things into perspective in the sense that I connected with this story a lot. I'd say that it helped me overall."

    "It's supposed to be a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. And it has a number of elements from the original, but it gets caught up in its own ambitions and nearly drowns itself under the weight of this. Not bad, but way less than it could have been."

    "While I hope the heroine of this novel had a happy ending, the description alone doesn't make it seem possible. I'm not sure this would be a book that would make someone happy unless it had a less than tragic ending but up until that point this actually sounds like a rather depressing book."

    "Based on real world scenarios throughout history, this book documents tells that may seem far fetched, but are backed with proof and accounts. The stories are all varying and interesting, from the mysterious discovery of modern medicinal properties, to bizarre occurrences relating to Abraham Lincoln's son meeting the son of his assassin on the same day he was murdered."

    "The stories in this really are great and uplifting at times. They are a bit of a change from some of Oscar Wilde's other stuff, but I really love everything I've read by him. This is definitely worth a read and make great stories to read to others as well. They won't all make you happy necessarily, but some will, and they are all great stories."

    "One of my favorite topics to talk about with my friends is "What were some of the most memorable events during your childhood?" Normally, that evokes nostalgia and happy memories for us. When I saw this book called "A Child's Christmas in Wales", I immediately snatched it up because it promised me of the author's memories as a child. I prepared some hot cocoa and chocolate for myself as I read through this book. It was like listening to a friend tell a story. All in all, I was very satisfied and my mood definitely felt happier because of all the interesting memories that were shared in the book. If you love nostalgia, give this book a try!"
