Since 2012, my mission at Tolstoy Therapy has been to share the best feel-good, beautiful, healing, and just plain great books.

All of the books I recommend are independently reviewed and researched to give the best recommendations, whether I’m sharing the best books for men, top reads for women in their twenties, or the best feel-good books for the year.

Tolstoy Therapy is supported by direct advertising and various affiliate marketing programs, which means that I may earn commissions on products purchased through our links to retailer sites. If a reader returns a purchase, I make no affiliate commission, which is even more reason to share only books I think you’ll love.

Below, you’ll find more information about the website. You can also read our About page for the story behind Tolstoy Therapy.
