Apparently, I only read books in which the protagonist attempts suicide, succeeds in suicide, or just straight up dies, all because their lives went terribly wrong. What's worse is that all their lives started out so pleasant and was their dream come true.
I didn't notice this trend in books until more than halfway through the book I'm currently reading, For One More Day by Mitch Albom.
It's an extremely quick and easy read. I'm enjoying it, and I'll be finished within the hour.
Prior to this, I read The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards.
It was very slow at times, but overall a good book.
Before that? Chuck Palahniuk's Survivor.
These are all very depressing books.
What I'd *really* like is a book recommendation or two. I need happy, light reading in my life right now. Especially now. Give me optimism. Hope. Happiness. Love. All of that junk. Then I can return to my bookshelf of all the random books I haven't yet read that were sitting in my house in PA, all of which appear to follow the same genre.
