Like Virginia Woolfe... But happier!

Bookfilter: Books that are beautifully written but funny, feel-good (at least at the end) and preferably with some female characters that are cool.

Looking for things to add on my reading list.
-Everything by Jane Austen
-Virginia Woolf (but it can put me in weird existential headspace)
-F. Scott Fitzgerald (for the beautiful style)
-Sylvia Plath (for her crazy but immersive antics)
-Oscar Wilde's rambles
-Dorothy Parker (found her too self indulgent)
-Truman Capote (a little too weird and confusing)
So excited about your answers!! :)
