I tend to forget about the plot and details of books I’ve read, and I rarely re-read books. However after I do finish a book, I usually have some sort of memory about how I felt while reading, so these recommendations are based mainly off of those instincts. Here they are in order of whatever pops into my head first, enjoy!
