#TopTenTuesday: Favourite Comfort Reads

So, we’re back with another Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week is actually a freebie and so I decided to do a topic that I don’t think I’ve done before: Comfort Reads (Share which books or kinds of books you turn to when you need to escape. You can either share specific titles if you love to re-read, or you could share qualities of books you look for in a comfort read.)

When I think of comfort reads, I think of the books that made me feel all warm, fuzzy, loved and well, comforted. They’re the books that I’d want to read again if I was feeling down, weird or anxious. The ones that made me laugh when I needed it and maybe even shed a few cathartic tears if I also need to. I’m not much of a re-reader but these are ten books that I’d definitely love to pick up again if I’m looking for a good escape and a comforting read because of how they gave me that sense of cosiness when I read them the first time!

Pride and Prejudice
Persuasion
👆🏽 these two Austens are the ones I’ve returned to time and again! 👆🏽
Legends & Lattes
With the Fire On High
Chef’s Kiss

A Psalm for the Wild-Built
Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating
Sorcery of Thorns
Sorry I’m Late I Didn’t Want to Come
Everything for You
👆🏽 But honestly, literally anything by Chloe Liese is a comfort read for me 🥹

What are some of your favourite comfort reads? Would any of these make your comfort reads list? I’d love to know your faves so I can check them out too! 😃

  1. Can you believe I haven’t read Psalm yet? Yikes. I love Chambers’ books, I don’t know what my deal is. I can see P&P being a comfort read too 🙂

  2. Great picks, Dini! I’d also love to re-read A Sorcery of Thorns and Psalm for the Wild Built. You’ve also reminded me I need to give Legends and Latte’s a go, I’ve read some amazing things about that book 😀
