Comfort Books

Comfort books

You know when you’re tired or ill or feeling a bit down, you end up wanting to eat comfort food? Well, I do of the same thing, but with books.

They’re usually books that I know inside and out, are easy to read and not too dark. A stellar example of this is Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas, because as you may or may not know I love Throne of Glass. To bits. I’ve read it more times than I can count and each time I re-read the books it’s like having a good old chat with a long-lost friend.

That’s why I just generally read the books I really connect with – not so much the more literary or well-written ones, but my trusty YA authors such as Rainbow Rowell, Marie Lu or Marissa Meyer. (But not The Hunger Games. As much as I love it, it’s not exactly light reading.)

Sometimes, I even go back to picture books, sitting cross-legged on the floor beside my bookshelf  and getting out The Whisperer or The Velveteen Rabbit.

How about you? Do you have comfort books, or comfort food? What are they?

  1. I’ve actually never read the same book twice XD But I always find comfort in reading new books… Just generally reading haha. And cup of hot chocolate… Mmm what more does a girl need! ^^’

    1. I’m going through a bit of a re-reading phase at the moment! 😀
      It’s supposed to be the coldest August ever recorded over where I am…brr…I really do feel like a hot chocolate…

    1. I haven’t read Anna and the French Kiss, but I’ve heard a lot good things about it. I need to mentally remind myself to read it.
      I read TMI over the summer and LOVED it. I think it would be one of my comfort books, but I got them all out from the library so it means I can’t just pick one up when I feel down… 😦
