The last three months have been challenging for me. Nothing serious going on – just major major hours working at my job. I’ve had to take a break on writing reviews and Sophia has been wonderful in still letting me stick around. When times get crazy, or I’m going through a particular tough time, I find myself slipping back into my go to comfort reads. Books and series that I can fall easily into that make me feel wrapped up in a warm blanket, protecting me from all the crazy around me. It’s rare for me to pick up a new book in times like these.
My go to comfort read? The Butch and Vishous scenes in Black Dagger Brotherhood. I’ll start with the end of Dark Lover and I’ll skim through all the rest of the BDB books by just reading scenes with Butch and Vishous. I can’t believe I’m even admitting this. But a confessional feels good. I may or may not end up going to my favorite Butch & V fanfic and reading it more than once. It all wraps around me like a warm blanket. It’s my definition of escape. What is it about these two that do this for me? I’ve never quite figured it out, but it always works.
Lauren Dane’s Brown Siblings series is also a comfort read for me. And Armed & Dangerous and Stars & Stripes by Abigail Roux work well too.
What’s your comfort read? Do you have two characters in a series that you return to when you need a little escape or life feels overwhelming? Or are you more likely to pick up something brand new?
