My favourite comfort reads tend to be stories that are generally lighter in topic, often children’s classics or stories that remind me of my childhood, set in spring/summer.
It goes without saying but of course all the Harry Potter books would be on this list however, I have tried to not mention them for once and instead focus on other books (as everyone knows reading Harry Potter is perfect for any situation!)
Let me know your favourite comfort reads down below – I know I could definitely use some more suggestions right now!
