From the list on feel good books about freeing yourself from your past.
Who am I?
I’m a novelist who was first a reader. For me, books are windows, showing the world through lenses I haven’t experienced before. In difficult moments, they’ve been lifelines, proof that I’m not alone and happy endings (at least happier) are possible. What “feels good” in a book is a quality unique to each reader. Below are stories about imperfect characters who not only survive their pasts but succeed—in unwinding from the wounds, changing aspects of themselves that no longer fit who they choose to be now, and ultimately creating happier lives. That kind of success feels great to me. I hope it might for you, too.
Khristin's book list on feel good books about freeing yourself from your past
Why did Khristin love this book?
Bryan Washington’s story and characters are so riveting that I fell into the first page and didn’t want to come back out until I knew what had happened.
This is another book that for me was a huge expansion, providing windows into worlds I had not experienced—an opening to so many new perspectives.
This novel brims with complexity and seemingly impossible emotional knots, yet these characters find ways through. Washington beautifully illustrates that coming to peace with your past doesn’t mean you have to understand everything; that forward momentum can exist along with gaps and uncertainty; and that the how and when of understanding—of coming to terms with what happened and what we witnessed—is a unique journey for each of us.
