3 Feel-Good Reads to get you through Lockdown

Top 3 Feel Good Reads in Lockdown

 ‘Is lockdown getting you down?’

We probably will all have had some low days during lockdown, so to help share a feel-good mood, we thought we’d share 3 feel-good reads we’d personally recommend.

In case you didn’t know this, The TeaNomads a.k.a. Sam + Jason, are actually big bookworms with Sam having studied English Literature at Uni and Jason currently working on his first novel! So, here are our thoughts on 3 books across 3 different genres we have read, old + new, which made us feel good.

Feel free to share your own feel-good recommendations in the comments below! We’d love to hear your thoughts and discover even more feel-good books to be filling our shelves with during lockdown!

 

The TeaNomad’s 3 Feel-good Read Recommendations:

A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson

  1. A Walk in the Woods, Bill Bryson [Travel]

Book Overview:

Follow Bryson and his friend Katz on the journey of a lifetime as they walk the Appalachian Trail along the East Coast of the United States, from Georgia to Maine; crossing amazing landscapes and making connections with some very interesting individuals along the way.

 Why we’ve chosen this read:

As keen travellers & explorers ourselves, we are missing exploring the beautiful planet which we live on! 

So, if you’re inner explorer is speaking to you, pick up a good travel book and travel with the mind! Bill Bryson is the perfect place to start for both readers new to travel works or avid travel book readers, with the perfect mix of comedy and travel, you’ll be laughing along a new travel experience with Bryson from the first page!

  1. A Sense of Wonder: How to capture the miracles of everyday, Francesco Dimitri [Non-Fiction]

Book Overview:

Fransceco’s A Sense of Wonder is almost a ‘workbook’ on how to find that sense of wonder we all have felt as a child. He argues that, with the world getting more complex and the pressures on us as individuals heightening, anxiety and unhappiness are increasing.

A Sense of Wonder explores the ways we can re-connect back to living with that sense of wonder, not to live as a child, but to live as a happier and more fulfilled adult.

Why we’ve chosen this read:

A philosophical read, we’ve chosen this book as so many of us are feeling ‘stuck in the same 4 walls’ and this book offers the chance to reflect on how we view life and how we can all embrace a little wonder into our everyday lives!

  1. Life of Pi, Yann Martel [Fiction/Adventure/Fantasy]

Book Overview:

Pi, a sixteen year-old boy is the only survivor of the sinking of a cargo ship, trapped in a solitary lifeboat in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Along with a hyena, a zebra, an orang-utan and a Royal Bengal tiger!

This book follows Pi’s extraordinary journey across the Pacific, on an adventure like no other!

Why we’ve chosen this read:

Okay, so being stranded in the middle of the ocean may sound and in fact be, more isolating than our current situation; however, Pi’s approach to his journey takes us on an adventure of not only survival but imagination.

How can you make your day-to-day that little more interesting?

Maybe walking across the kitchen to put the kettle on could become an adventure through a jungle but stay alert as you hear the grumble of a large predator (of course, the roiling boil of your kettle!)

Where could your imagination take you today?
