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 🙂
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

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.
