Since COVID-19 prompted the country to go under lockdown, the Hello, Love, Goodbye star has In particular raved about The Next Person You Meet In Heaven—written by Mitch Albom, who also authored New York Times bestseller Tuesdays With Morrie.

The Next Person You Meet In Heaven, of course, is the sequel to Albom’s ever-inspiring The Five People You Meet In Heaven (published in 2003).

The latter follows a man named Eddie who dies after saving a girl named Annie from an accident. The story sees Eddie in heaven, meeting five people who have made an impact on his life.

The sequel, meanwhile, captures Annie's own death that leads her to reuniting with Eddie in heaven.

Kath has copies of Albom's other celebrated books including The First Phone Call from Heaven, The Time Keeper, and For One More Day—all of which, she recommends as good reads while in lockdown!
