Read a book you consider to be a comfort read.

Sometimes, we read books to challenge ourselves or learn something. Sometimes, we read books about uncomfortable or even frightening topics. But we all know that sometimes you just need a nice, cozy book to relax with. If you are feeling overwhelmed and want to kick back with a comfort read, these books are for you!

Murder past due.    Knit one, kill two  Haunted hibiscus

You can’t say comfort without “cozy,” and you can’t say cozy without cozy mysteries. If you are a die-hard mystery fan that is burnt out on grisly murders and true crime, cozy mysteries may be the answer for you. These books offer a mystery to solve but with a delicate twist that can take the edge off the suspense.


The bookshop of second chances : a novel The library of lost and found How to find love in a bookshop
Comfort reads about characters searching for comfort reads? It may seem a little too “on the nose,” but it is clearly a burgeoning sub-genre. There are a wide array of recent publications that feature a bookstore or library as the main setting.

Copycat  The worst best man : a novel  Much ado about you

Are you a fan of romance, but you need a break from all of the hot and heavy trysts? There are plenty of contemporary romance titles that manage to be more fun than flirty on our shelves.

Broken : (in the best possible way)  Wow, no thank you : essays  Hold on, but don't hold still : hope and humor from my seriously flawed life

What is more comforting than a good laugh? These humor titles will have you laughing out loud and feeling comforted by the sympathetic narrators.

 The annotated Pride and prejudice  Murder on the Orient Express  The annotated hobbit : the hobbit, or, There and back again

Sometimes the most comforting book to pick up is a familiar one. If there’s a classic you know well, or a book you remember from your childhood you are ready to revisit, now is a great time to pick it up again!

We are looking forward to a year full of challenging new reads with you!

Happy reading!

In 2022, read a book…
