    It’s very rare for me to read a book that touches me on such a personal level, even if I relate to the characters in a major way or if the storyline reaches someplace deep inside my heart I don’t often feel truly moved and inspired by a book. I think this is one of those magical moments where I picked the perfect book at the right time, Something Like Happy was exactly the type of book I needed and I didn’t even realize it until I was done....

    SOMETHING LIKE HAPPY by Eva Woods is simply outstanding!!!!!This book broke me and no this is not an exaggeration - ask my husband who woke up suddenly to the sound of me wailing at 2 am, lol. This story sucked me in and made me care so deeply about the characters and pulled at my heartstrings from start to finish and I definitely went through a box of tissues as I read it, but it also made me laugh out loud, made me appreciate my life even more,...

    This was a definite 6 star read, but since Goodreads won't allow that (and I have to take off one star for God awful editing, proofing, formatting - which I can only hope is because it was an ARC), a 5 star it is.This book was everyting - sad, happy, heart-breaking, hilarious, irreverant, joyous. You name the emotion, and this story contained it. It is a out friendship and love, selfishness and selflessness. It is about choosing to live a life th...

    Check out for more reviews. Something Like Happy is a beautiful story about characters you'll love, friendship and small joys in life. The novel also revolves around 100 Happy Days Project, I had never heard of it before, so it was an experience reading about that. It shows how you can find joy in small things in life.Annie Hebden is miserable and Polly is set to enjoy and celebrate life in the 100 Happy Day...

    On the back cover of “Something Like Happy” is the alluring sentence: For fans of JoJo Moyes comes a moving tale of finding happiness in one hundred days. Well, that’s all I needed to pick-up this book. Indeed, author Eva Woods penned a “Moyes-esq” sort of novel. Protagonist Annie Hebden is a surly curmudgeon who happens to cross paths with Polly Leonard in a hospital. The reader learns there are many reasons for Annie’s surly attitud...
