Comfort Reads

I just spent the last few days suffering from stomach flu I received from my loving husband who we think got it from our beautiful children. I’ll spare you the details, but basically it left me in bed and miserable. So when I wasn’t… you know, or sleeping, I had time to read. I found I wasn’t able to focus on anything heavy or detailed. Here’s what I was able to read.

  • Rereads of favorite books. Wild Things by Chloe Neill. A little violence and snark always makes me feel better.
  • Romance novels. Loretta Chase was recently recommended by Rebecca Schinsky at Book Riot so I thought I’d give her a go. I only got into the beginning of The Lion’s Daughter, but it was perfect for a sick day.
  • Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. I don’t have a category for this. I’ve been told to read this and it didn’t disappoint. The content is fun and adventurous.
  • Comics. Hello Sex Criminals Vol 2. Which is the closest I felt to being frisky at all.


What do you like to read when you’re sick (if you feel up to reading)?
