Grief is overwhelming. As remarked by every well know writer pretty much in the history of the world. It is actually also a feeling that I find, is relatively easy to explain but incredibly hard to understand. Reading (as I tend to do a lot) always relates back to death in whatever novel/paper/poem I decide to look at. So here are a few books for you, if you like me find solace in literature, to lose yourself in. This is in no endorsement that they make you feel better (whatever that means) but to feel normal/less like you are losing your mind.
- H is for Hawk – simply amazing and a cornucopia of themes that merge seamlessly.
- How to be both – strong female characters and beautifully written.
- Wuthering Heights – who doesn’t enjoy this dark and twisted fantasy.
