TGIF – July 6, 2012

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.

    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!

      I had the American Girl Kirsten doll too _ I liked her the best because I looked like her haha. Thanks for the comment 🙂

      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!!

      True! I don’t really have time to re-read anymore – That was back before the real book obsession started 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!!

    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!!
