The Happy Brain by Dean Burnett:

In this book, Dean Burnett talks about science and bubbly feelings of what happiness means. He tastefully combines scientific theories of emotions with interviews of dozens of people on the happiness scale, from relationship coaches to millionaires. 

Happy For No Reason by Mandira Bedi:

Written by Mandira Bedi, this book is about her and how she is in search of happiness. In this book, she talks about how happiness is not conditional, materialistic or transactional. She accepts that she hasn’t solved the code for it yet, but genuinely believes that she is headed in the right direction. The book makes you believe that everyone deserves happiness. 

Life is What You Make it by Preeti Shenoy:

Authored by Preeti Shenoy, it is based on a love story set in India in the 90s. The book shows how love, hope and determination can help you combat everything in life. It's gripping, and will surely make you appreciate life more.

The story is set in Kerala and the book talks about multiple relationships, feelings and emotions in the most entertaining way. 

So, since we are in lockdown for a few more days, it's time to read these books and feel good about life.

No true reader with self respect will ever pick up a celeb genre book. I recommend Anne Frank's diary and Socrates Cafe.
