It’s time for TGIF again, thanks to Ginger at GReads!
So this week’s TGIF topic is:
Comfort Reads: Which books do you go to for comfort & familiarity? Is there a type of book you seek out when you’re needing that extra bit of comfort in your life?
Comfort reads to me mean either books that I go back to time-after-time always satisfied with a re-read, a series that I love that’s easy to read, or books that I’ve always loved and have some fond memories attached to them, a lot of them related to childhood.
Regular comfort reads:
Harry Potter & The Stephanie Plum series are two comfort reads: HP in the fact that I’ve re-read it several times and know it inside and out. Stephanie Plum in that they’re always easy to come back to, they’re light, super quick, and a lot of fun.
Memory comfort reads:
Books that remind me of my childhood and ones I have fond memories of – Some I’ve even re-read as an adult!
Okay, I had to add The Monster at the End of This Book because I remember my mom reading that to us in Grover’s voice! The others are mostly just books that remind me of my childhood 🙂 Oldies, but goodies.

I definitely agree with you- the Harry Potter are my #1 comfort series. I would also say that the Eragon series and the Southern Vampire Mysteries/Sookie Stackhouse series are my two other comfort reads. I love them both!
Oh I forgot all about Sookie! I’m only about 5 books into the series but definitely a good pick 🙂 thanks for stopping by!!
Harry Potter most excellent. I need to start the Stephanie Plum Series.
You should! It’s been one of my favorites since I started it. Thanks for stopping by!
I LOVED the Harry Potter series, I would definitely re-read a few of those books, although I usually don’t re-read books.
True! I don’t really have time to re-read anymore – That was back before the real book obsession started 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!!
Great picks Alexa 🙂
I’m yet to read Stephanie Plum but I’ve heard good things and a friend has given me the first book so I should really get to that 🙂
You should totally start Stephanie Plum!! I think you’ll get hooked 🙂
I am absolutely in agreement with SO MANY of your choices. It’s always fun to revisit childhood reads!
Yay! Those are so much fun to go back and read again. Thanks for stopping by!!!
great list! of course, i should have put Harry Potter! ugh. and I LOVE The Monster at the End of this Book & read it to my boys 🙂 also, stephanie plum is the bomb. if i reread any of hers, i think i’ll read 12 sharp b/c there’s a lot of good Ranger loving in it 🙂 ~dixie
Thank you! Oh man, I’m so glad someone else likes The Monster at the End of This Book! 🙂
And another Stephanie Plum lover! I think 13 was my last book and I still can’t decide who I want Steph to actually end up with. In all honesty, I don’t think she’ll even pick ! 🙂
Thanks for the comment!!
Oh wow, I LOVE all the books on your list! We share quite a few favorites it looks like, although I’ve never read any Stephanie Plum books.
I read every single America Girl book, but Kirsten was by far my favorite. I even had the doll 🙂 And The Giver is one of my all time favorite reads.
Thanks for stopping by my list today!
The Stephanie Plum books are so much fun!
I had the American Girl Kirsten doll too _ I liked her the best because I looked like her haha. Thanks for the comment 🙂
