Top Ten Tuesday: Comfort Reads

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.


This week’s TTT is a little hard for me to narrow down because it begs the question: what constitutes as ‘comfort’? It’s very subjective and differs from person to person. I mean, it may even differ within a person depending on the given time or mood.

I’m such a mood reader that it makes predicting what I read quite hard sometimes. I can be all over the place so I really try not to set hard rules for what I must read in a calendar or journal.

So when I think of “comfort”, I mostly lean into what I would read to help distract me when I’m tired or ill or in a bad mood. While some on this list may not seem to hold a common thread with the others, it honestly boils down to this one thing. They’re easily digestible without too much brain power necessarily needed, and hold characters’ stories that I can root for and easily love, especially their love stories.

I want to ask if you agree, but then again, this is all super subjective so I will just give you my list and call it a day 🙂

Let’s begin!

1. Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

2. Hot British Boyfriend by Kristy Boyce

3. Love, Life, and the List by Kasie West

4. Night World series by L.J. Smith

5. If I’m Being Honest by Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka

6. The Mediator series by Meg Cabot

7. The Cheat Sheet by Sarah Adams

8. The Host by Stephenie Meyer

9. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

10. The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

And that’s my list! Kind of eclectic but they’re what make me happy (or at least comforted) in times of need.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy TTT to you all.

  1. Comfort reads really can be so subjective! I can see how Hot British Boyfriend made this list, the romance and travel makes it feel so escapist and fun, loved seeing the variety to this list Andge! 😍

      1. Oh, I love to hear that they are quick reads. I am so glad to see them on this list. I’m pretty sure it was my random tbr jar pick last month but I never got to it. I need to squeeze it in!

  2. That’s a great point- what constitutes a comfort read may vary from time to time and depending on your mood! These all look like a lot of fun. I know a lot of people swear by Kasie West!
