Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s topic was ‘books that make me smile’ and since that can be interpreted a few different ways, I decided to go the comfort-way. Meaning, the below books are all books that are comfort reads to me. Reading them makes me smile, because they each have something heartwarming, relatable or just plain feel-good and hopeful that makes me feel comforted and content. They’re the dandelion in the spring, if you must πŸ™‚ This is a mix of adult and young adult, fantasy and contemporary, old and new, but all of them are comforting reads I’d choose to re-read whenever I want to feel comforted and smile.

    1. The Unhoneymooners is definitely such a comforting read πŸ™‚

  8. I loved Sorcery of Thorns and Starry Eyes! They are definitely books I’d go back to, either for comfort or just to satisfy the urge to reread such amazing stories!
    I’m ashamed to admit that the rest of these are either on my TBR or new to me… the shame comes from most of them actually being on the TBR. 😭 But if they’re comforting reads to you, I definitely need to get to them!
    Happy Reading!! <3
