The Little Book of Lykke by Meik Wiking – Review

Today I am taking part in the Lykke Blog Tour to celebrate the release of The Little Book of Lykke. I loved Meik Wiking’s first book, The Little Book of Hygge (review here), so I was over the moon when Penguin contacted me and asked if I’d like to read an early copy. I am happy to report that I loved this book just as much as the first!
