Adulting sucks sometimes. There’s no denying it. It’s also juicy fun, silly, ridiculous, sweet, charming and lovely at other times.
Giving you comfort, support, nuggets of wisdom or a good belly laugh through the peaks and troughs of adulting is what these books are all about.
When adulting is tough and you find yourself reaching for the bottle of wine, reach for one of these books too. For when your inner child is just feeling downright too grown up for your own good, dive into one of these books and read to her, because she needs you and her to bond again and for you both to find some light relief and food for the soul to get you through the sucky times.
When I moved to Canada with my husband and son, I had no idea my life would fall apart 3 months later and I’d find myself going through some of the darkest times of my life, with a son who was looking to me for answers, all while I sat there feeling like a lost, desperate little kid. These are the books I wished I’d had then. The books that can bring comfort, understanding, connection, and a reminder of how to play grown ups when I needed to.
