Stories filled with kindness, optimism and heart.

In the wake of recent reading trends favouring dystopian horrors and psychological thrillers, both of which can leave readers feeling exhausted and despondent, a new trend has emerged. Up Lit or uplifting literature may feature tears, gasps and moments of sadness, but by the final pages of these books the reader is left with a sense of good about the world and the people in it. Next time you’re in the mood to look on the brighter side of life, pick up one of these titles and get ready for the warm-fuzzies to take over.
