My Top Nine Comfort Books

My Comfort Books

Reading has been a hobby of mine for as long as I can remember. Diving into a good book was how I coped with any negativity in my life. There have been a handful of books that I have read time and time again over the years.

  1. The Hunger Games trilogy

Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games has never failed to be a great escape for me. Diving into the elaborate world of Panem and reading about my favorite characters makes me feel like I’m in middle school experiencing the story for the first time again. 

  1. The Twilight Saga

Twilight gets a lot of hate, but I love the story. When life starts to feel stressful and out of control, reading about a small town filled with vampires and werewolves suddenly makes all of my problems trivial.

  1. The Fault in our Stars

This book still rips my heart out at the end, but the journey that Hazel and Augustus take together feels so hopeful and wholesome. Sometimes it is nice to have a good cry and let go of all the built up emotions.

  1. Percy Jackson series

The Percy Jackson and the Olympians series catapulted my love for reading. Reading that series brings back the same excitement I had when I was reading them for the first time in elementary school. Everything feels simpler and suddenly no task is unsolvable. 

  1. Chaos Walking

I first read Chaos Walking in preparation to see the movie adaptation, but I fell in love with the book. It flows nicely and is a perfect summer read. 

  1. The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby brings me back to high school in a nostalgic and pleasant way. 

  1. Fahrenheit 451

Fahrenheit 451 was the first book I read in my dystopian fiction class. I enjoyed the writing style and the realistic dystopian plot. 

  1. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland was my favorite Disney movie when I was a little kid, so this book always hits my heart when I read it. 

  1. Paper Towns

If I could capture the feeling of summer into a book, it would be Paper Towns.
