This prompt from Long and Short Reviews was fairly easy, because when I'm not feeling well I read stuff that requires very little thought - mostly romance. It's not something I read a lot of, but when I'm sick I like to disappear into that world, and these are the sorts of things that help me do that.
The Time Traveler's Wife. It may not make a huge amount of sense, but I find it to be good escapism.
To Marry A Prince. This was the first romance novel I ever read, and it's perfect. It had a great, strong heroine, an equally great best friend and a central romance you root for all the way.
Anything by Anne O'Brien. She writes more at the romantic end of history and I've loved every one of her books.
So what do you read when you're ill?
I enjoyed The Time Traveler's Wife, but I had to pay attention to "when" I was! Not familiar with the other book or Anne O'Brien. I will have to check her out. My post is here.ReplyDelete
Anne O'Brien is great if you like historicals. She deals a lot with strong women.Delete
The Time Traveller's Wife was an engrossing book. Reading it when you're not feeling well makes a lot of sense to me.ReplyDelete
It definitely takes my mind off feeling ill.Delete
I'll have to check out Anne O'Brien. I forgot about one of my go-to authors (because she was a first author for me), Cassie Edwards. Her historical paranormals are interesting. Great post.ReplyDelete
I'll have to check her out.Delete
I haven't read any of those, but they look like wonderful fun. (I just picked up To Marry A Prince because honestly? I'm about to finish my current reading, and I could use some escapism this week.)ReplyDelete
My list is here.
It's definitely a good read.Delete
I love a good romance when I'm under the weather. Especially if it has humor in it. :)ReplyDelete
Yes, got to have some humour when you're ill.Delete
