Top 10 Tuesday — Comfort Reads

31 May

I have always loved mysteries! From the moment I read that first Nancy Drew I was hooked. They are my go-to when I need a little escape. And though I read all kinds of mysteries, I find my comfort reads in cozies. Today’s TTT list includes cozy mystery series that I lost myself in. They are so much fun with main characters that I love. There are lots of books in these series — I have finished some, but have more to grab when I need that comfort fix. I hope you find a series to love (and binge πŸ˜‰ ).

    It’s interesting to me how many people love mysteries as comfort reads while I struggle to follow the plot!

      I guess that’s why there are so many genres to choose from. Everyone connects with something different. Enjoy your comfort reads!
