We’re all aware that comfort food or comfort movies are sometimes necessary in life, but how about comfort books? The collection of books that I’ve found to help get my mind off stressors in life are a mix between romance and psychological thrillers. Listed below are my top ten comfort books (not in any order) that I’ll read again and again. All that are listed are compelling from the beginning, so you won’t have to worry about wasting time on a read you don’t end up enjoying. Hopefully, these are slightly more original than what’s being posted on BookTok. 

  1. The Mara Dyer Trilogy by Michelle Hodkin
  2. The Paper Princess series by Erin Watt
  3. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han
  4. Pretties by Scott Westerfield
  5. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
  6. American Royals by Katharine McGee
  7. One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus
  8. The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
  9. An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
  10. The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

Hi everyone! Just a little bit about me: I hate to write, love to read, and am an avid movie and tv show watcher. I've started to dabble around with cooking real meals, since I'll be living in a house with my friends next year, and can't wait to continue on that food loving journey.
