Something Like Happy (eBook)

  • by Eva Woods


With wry wit and boundless heart, Eva Woods delivers an unforgettable tale of
celebrating triumphs great and small, seizing the day, and always remembering to live in
the moment.

“It's simple, really. You're just meant to do one thing every day that makes
you happy. Could be little things. Could be big. In fact, we're doing one right now…”

Annie Hebden is stuck. Stuck in her boring job, with her irritating roommate, in a life no
thirty-five-year-old would want. But deep down, Annie is still mourning the terrible loss
that tore a hole through the perfect existence she'd once taken for granted—and hiding
away is safer than remembering what used to be. Until she meets the eccentric Polly

Bright, bubbly, intrusive Polly is everything Annie doesn't want in a friend. But
Polly is determined to finally wake Annie up to life. Because if recent events have taught
Polly anything, it's that your time is too short to waste a single day—which is why she
wants Annie to join her on a mission…

One hundred days. One hundred new ways to be
happy. Annie's convinced it's impossible, but so is saying no to Polly. And on an
unforgettable journey that will force her to open herself to new experiences—and perhaps
even new love with the unlikeliest of men—Annie will slowly begin to realize that maybe,
just maybe, there's still joy to be found in the world. But then it becomes clear that
Polly's about to need her new friend more than ever…and Annie will have to decide once
and for all whether letting others in is a risk worth taking.

“A special book that will make you laugh through your tears with its heartfelt take on
happiness and friendship.”—Amy E. Reichert, author of The Coincidence of Coconut Cake
