Feel-Good Literary Fiction

I’m in an emotional slump and I need something to read that will be delightful, not depressing. But I am terrible at finding these kinds of books for myself and I’m hoping that you, internet friends, might have ideas.

I’m definitely looking for a novel. Sorry nonfiction and short story collections. Also, I’d prefer literary fiction for adults - which is not to shade YA or genre, but right now I want to be in the head space of adults.


Some stuff I’ve read that I think kinda fits into this mold: Less by Sean Andrew Greer, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid, Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield, The Shark Club by Ann Kidd...

Anybody else need book recs? Throw ‘em up in the comments.
