Top Ten Tuesday – Top 3 Qualities in a Comfort read and a list

by Ari

Happy Tuesday! How are you? Ahhh it’s been so long since we participated into one of these!! I decided to start posting more frequently, as I would like the blog to get a little bit more traffic, especially from fellow bloggers. So a way to do this is simply by joining into more memes!! Top Ten Tuesday is a lovely one and if you don’t know what it is, basically every week we have a prompt and we give a list of a top ten books that fit that week’s prompt.

This week’s prompt is about Comfort Reads! Usually a comfort read for me, is a book I’ll pick up whenever I’m in a slump, or whenever I just want to read. To be honest, Harry Potter used to be a solid comfort read for the longest time, especially the audiobooks narrated by Jim Dale. These days, I find that I can’t return to it as easily as I had in the past.

So what makes a comfort read for me? Usually, it’s qualities you might find in a middle grade book. For example:

  • A lovable cast of characters (extra points if there are animal sidekicks who can talk).
  • A dash of magic (actual magic, or magical realism works).
  • And if it’s romance, definitely a lot of bantering; think Pride and Prejudice.

Now on to my personal top 6 comfort reads*:

A lot of people picked Jane Austen this week. I have not read one of hers yet that I really loved (might not be reading the right ones, LOL).

I love seeing magic in comfort reads, too.
