Denise Welch: My six best books

LITTLE WOMEN by Louisa May Alcott

Puffin, £9.99

This portrayed an idyllic life of which I knew nothing and I wanted to be part of the world of the four sisters. I was quite a girly girl but I was drawn to Jo, the tomboy, and I remember asking my mum if I could have some dungarees. I still love wearing a pair.

THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS by Kenneth Grahame

Vintage, £5.99

Another childhood favourite, which led into my real life last year when I played Mrs Otter in an adaptation at the London Palladium. My dad used to read it to me and he came to see it, which was special. I’m a homebody and I liked the fact that ultimately it’s their river that matters to Ratty and Mole.


Trigger, £11.99

Lucy suffers from anxiety, as do I, though with me it’s mainly depression, a horrible, isolating illness. I’m always keen to read mental health books based on people’s experiences. She’s hysterically funny but she cares about changing people’s perception, as I do.
