Comfort Books

Comfort food is great, but do you have comfort books? I tend to re-read some books over and over again. I don’t know why; I guess there’s something in them that resonates with me. Different books  suit different moods. Here are some of my favorites, most of which go really well with chocolate:

Feeling down and need something to cheer you up?
Try Rowling's Harry Potter, Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonsong, Dragonsinger, and Dragondrums, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain, or The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien.

Feeling gloomy and want to savor it? (I.e. “Sad is happy for deep people” - Doctor Who)
The Sandman comics, The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas, Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice.

Bored? These books are unputdownable:
The Song of Ice and Fire books by George R. R. Martin, The First Law trilogy by Joe Abercombie, The Witcher books by Andrzej Sapkowski, or Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files.

The Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula LeGuin, Dune by Frank Herbert, Troll by Johanna Sinisalo, or The Lover by Marguerite Duras.

Starved for romance?
Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë, or on the lighter side The Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris or Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder.

What are your favorites?
