Books with Happy Characters


Even in difficult circumstances, characters in books can be surprisingly happy.

Take a look at the main characters in these books if you would like to be inspired:

Anne of Green Gables...
Pollyanna...
Heidi...
Sarah in The Little Princess...
Elnora in A Girl of the Limberlost...

even
Pippi Longstocking...
The Whos in How the Grinch Stole Christmas


Let me share a little of Anne of Green Gables...yes, I know there are some who find her annoyingly upbeat...but I find her refreshing...

"Isn’t it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive—it’s such an interesting world. It wouldn’t be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it?"

"Don’t you feel as if you just loved the world on a morning like this?"

"It’s been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will."

"It gives you a lovely, comfortable feeling to apologize and be forgiven, doesn’t it?"

“Oh, Marilla, looking forward to things is half the pleasure of them,” exclaimed Anne. “You mayn’t get the things themselves; but nothing can prevent you from having the fun of looking forward to them."

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. It would be terrible if we just skipped from September to November, wouldn’t it?"

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.
