Top Ten Tuesdays – Comfort Reads

Posted May 31, 2022 by louisesr in Features / 9 Comments

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.

Hmm so, this kind of works on the assumption that as readers we reread books when we’re looking for comfort. I NEVER reread books. I tried it a couple of times and was really disappointed. Two books which I’d previously loved and they were both DNF for me the second time round. Maybe I just don’t like knowing how something is going to turn out.

There are however authors that I class as “feel good fiction” these are the books that I know are going to make me feel warm and fuzzy inside. If I’m a bit down and I need a lift then these are the authors that I turn to, in no particular order

  1. Jill Mansell
  2. Milly Johnson
  3. Lucy Diamond
  4. Cathy Bramley
  5. Heidi Swain
  6. Carole Matthews
  7. Sarah Morgan
  8. Trisha Ashley
  9. Veronica Henry
  10. Jenny Colgan
  11. Sue Moorcroft

I know it’s top 10 Tuesday and there’s 11 of them but I couldn’t cut any of them out.

  1. I don’t reread as much as I used to, but I still do occasionally.
    My TTT

  2. All these authors are new to me.
    I’ll look them up to see what kind of books they write. I read mostly fantasy, but I do like the occasional general fiction book.

  3. I agree Louise, I don’t reread, but there are authors I pick up for a comfort, feel good read. Nice list, I read a few of these authors.
