    Hi there, my name is Clare and all the way back in February which, let's be honest, feels like YEARS ago, I went to see a bibliotherapist.

    I was prescribed six books, each with the intent of easing my fear associated with such an unstable future impacted by climate change, international politics and the fires that raged in Australia early this year.

    Here's how they went!

    1. Lolly Willowes by Sylvia Townsend Warner

    2. The Versions Of US by Laura Barnett

    3. Notes to Self by Emilie Pine

    4. The Girls' Guide To Hunting And Fishing by Melissa Bank

    5. Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed

    6. Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
