If you are seriously in need of a reading hug, then I advise that you step straight into this gorgeously feel-good read. 97 year old Algernon and his 15 year old granddaughter Anna don’t get off to the best of starts when they meet for the first time, but soon realise they may have more in common than they thought. This is author Phyllida Shrimpton’s first novel for adults, and it really is the most transportive gathering of writing. It felt as though words, sentences, paragraphs all flowed into and around each other, joining together to stream straight into my heart and soul. I wasn’t too far in and discovered two exquisite lines that made me cry, so fair warning, this is a book that might well catch you unaware in the best possible way. The two main characters will stay with me, they feel fully-fleshed, and so so real. The emotions I felt as I read about them, became at one with them, didn’t skim the surface, they sank in, permeating though to my core. As I experienced laughter, sorrow, delight, and elation, I realised this is one of those books that I could pick up again and again. Chosen as a LoveReading Star Book, Every Shade of Happy made me ache with sadness and expand with joy, it is a slice of reading heaven I highly recommend. 

 

Every Shade of Happy is just as wonderful, just as gorgeous as The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot by Marianne Cronin, The Funny Thing about Norman Foreman by Julietta Henderson, and My Grandmother Sends Her Regards and Apologises by Fredrik Backman, so if you loved, loved, loved them, what are you waiting for!
