I‘m am really looking forward to a round of feel good reads. Here are some I found. What do you think? I‘m leaning towards the tagged book but the others sound fun too. They are tagged in the comments.

marleed Input from a random Litsy member… I love Fortnight In September and have purchased it two additional times for gifts. I would recommend reading the history of how and when it was written and published prior to reading because I believe it helps the reader appreciate the simplicity in the story. 4w
LeahBergen I enjoyed all of these! 😊 4w
inthegreensandblues I haven't read any of them and they all sound good. 😊 4w
TheAromaofBooks Yay!! I'm so excited about this round of reading!! I recently read Diary of a Provincial Lady, but haven't read any of the others, so I would be fine with any of them!! 4w
Maggie4483 These all sound great! I‘d be happy with any of them (and I‘m adding all of everyone‘s picks to my TBR). 4w
Deblovestoread I appreciate the input especially the tip about reading the history first since this is going to be my pick. Thank you 😊 @marleed 4w
Deblovestoread I‘m going to go with this one 4w

It‘s the 1930s, and the Stevens family travel to the English seaside town of Bognor. For two glorious weeks they are freed from collars and stockings, from work and duties.

It is the 20th time they go there and their days pass in the same way each year. The family can afford little but what dominates is their constant enjoyment and making the most of every little ritual.

A wonderful book, a typical #Persephone. Highly recommended.

erzascarletbookgasm I‘ve got this on hold. Lovely view! 11mo

sarahbarnes I‘m waiting on Paradais from the library and have been waiting for a minute. 11mo
LeahBergen The Fortnight in September! ❤️❤️ 11mo
BarbaraBB @sarahbarnes How are you doing with 11mo
sarahbarnes I am still in book 2. 😳 I feel like other books keeping taking my attention. I like it, but it is slow going for me. Maybe that‘s okay. How are you doing with it? 11mo
BarbaraBB @sarahbarnes Exactly the same. I‘m not really motivated to pick it up again even though I like it too. Other books all seem more appealing! 11mo
CarolynM I need to get The Fortnight in September. Look forward to your review. 11mo
Megabooks Hoping SoT arrives soon! 11mo
vivastory I can't wait to read the new Melchor! It's going to be published in the states 5/10. Honestly, if it was going to be longer I'd probably order the Fitzcarraldo edition 11mo
BarbaraBB @vivastory I don‘t know Melchor, I have no idea what I‘m in for but review are good! 11mo
BarbaraBB @Megabooks It did! Today! Finally! 11mo
Megabooks Awesome!! 👍🏻👍🏻 11mo

Look at these beauties side by side. Looks like Florence Adler strolled over to the other cover. Thank you to the Litten who posted about Fortnight (but I forgot who it was!) I immediately got it. Sounds exactly like my kind of book. #covertwins
