I read Before I Go To Sleep this summer and LOVED it (plus they're making a movie with COLIN FIRTH as one of the leads. Sold!)
Speaking of Colin, I always fall back on Jane Austen when I want a comfort read. P&P is my go to.
I read The Dressmaker, which was a fictional account of the first weeks after the Titanic sank. It was okay; it had a completely unnecessary love triangle. But it's a quick read and despite the subject matter was not sad.
Others I've read in the last few months: Reconstructing Amelia,
The Bride Quartet from Nora Roberts
I've Got Your Number (from the Shopaholic author)
Ricochet (Sandra Brown),
Lisa Gardner's DD Warren novels (but those can be a little disturbing, so unless you want to be up all night, read during the day)
In The Woods (Tana French)
A Discovery of Witches (which was phenomenal)
Your Voice in My Head (a memoir from one of Colin Farrell's exes. It's a little heavy because she's depressed, but it was so well written)
The Night Circus
The Ex Pats
I read A LOT while DS or DH is watching TV.
