The Comfort Book Tag: What Books I Will ALWAYS Recommend!


Hey bookworms! For today’s blog post I decided I wanted to do the Comfort Book Tag! I’ve seen this all over Instagram, YouTube, and Pinterest, so I figured it was time!😂  There are 10 prompts for this tag and I will describe a little bit about why I chose each book for each prompt! Be sure to read until the end because I’m also going to share my rating and star ratings for each book I recommend! I want to disclaim that I will be attaching links to each of the books so you can go read their synopses instead of me copying and pasting them in this post!


Let’s Get Started!!!

Comfort Book Tag Prompts


1.     A book of steadfast comfort, always there for you, and makes any day better.

The first book that comes to mind is a recent read of mine which was Delilah Green Doesn’t Care by Ashley Herring Blake! This book gave me all the feels from beginning to end and it takes a lot for me to be affected by a book so much. The memories shared from when Delilah’s dad was still alive her relationships between her stepfamily, her growing friendship with Iris and Claire, and her romantic relationship with Claire all made me believe Delilah was a real woman going through real-life hardships! The way it was written was young and realistic and easy to fly through. Relatable books that are easy reads always tend to give me that steadfast comfort feeling!


2.     A book that reminds you of a loved one, or a comforting book that was given to you or read aloud to you by someone dear.

Honestly, I wasn’t gifted very many books growing up, but the only one I can think of is the Hunger Games Series😂 My elementary school friends and I were obsessed with this series and always went to go see the movies in the theatre together when they released! I remember reading each book one by one, ensuring. Watched the first book’s movie adaptation before reading the next book, and so on! This was definitely the first book series that made me appreciate reading growing up!


3.     A book with particularly vivid prose or imagery. A story comforting in its richness, depth, or vibrance.

While I’m not finished with this story yet, I immediately thought about The Invisible Life of Addie Larue for this prompt! Getting to know Addie Larue’s past life and her journey throughout centuries of immortal life is definitely full of richness, depth, and vibrance! V.E Schwab’s writing is absolutely stunning and this book allows me to visualize all of the places and situations Addie Larue experiences!


4.     A book that keeps you going or encourages you when things feel dark.

If you’ve read Reminders of Him by Colleen Hoover, you already know what I’m talking about!!! This story follows a mother named Kenna who was just released from prison after 5 years and wants to reunite with her 4-year-old daughter. This was such a beautiful story about Kenna figuring out how to better herself and her life in order to prove to her daughter’s grandparents that she is worthy of being in her daughter’s life! I don’t think it’s possible for someone to feel so down on themselves as much as Kenna does in this story, but she comes out on the other side being the best version of herself and it’s a great book to make us realize that if you want something or someone bad enough, you can achieve your dreams and also win the guy in the end too😂❤


5.     A book that makes you laugh out loud or grin widely, coming to the rescue on the gloomiest days.

Even though this is technically a holiday romance, The Plight Before Christmas was such a warm and fun book to read and I would absolutely read this any time of the year. We follow Whitney who is going through a lot with her love life being stagnant and not getting the promotion at work she deserved! She then goes to her family’s cabin for the holidays, and her brother invites his new friend, also being Whitney’s ex-boyfriend from 17 years ago! Whitney has a few siblings with kids and the interactions with her nieces and nephews are absolutely adorable and made me chuckle a few times! The banter between Whitney and her ex-boyfriend was also super tense, clever, and funny! The relationship between Whitney and her parents, as well as her ex-boyfriend’s new relationship with her family, were all so comforting and warm-feeling! I adored this book!


6.     You’ve got your warm drink and a cozy blanket. What do you read when you’re curled up in bed all day?

I remember when I read November 9 by Colleen Hoover on November 9th and it was the coziest reading experience I’ve had thus far! I remember just cuddling in bed with my cat and drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows while enjoying this adorable and tragic love story! This book is about two young adults named Fallon and Ben, who meet one day in a diner and strike up a connection instantly, however, Fallon is moving to New York that night, on November 9, so they decide that they will meet every day on November 9 but not have any contact on any other day of the year so they can live their young lives and experience everything. It was such a fast-paced, beautiful story!


7.     A book that brings you solace no matter how many times you reread it.

I’ve actually never reread a book thus far, but I really want to reread The One by John Marrs, as it’s one of my all-time favorite books and I haven’t read it in 2 years! It’s a romance/sci-fi/thriller based on using DNA to find your soulmate, and it’s such an interesting concept that either went very well or very poorly and dark in the story! I have never read anything like it before and it still brings me solace after 2 years just thinking about it!


8.     A book that restores your faith in humanity, faith in life, and faith in yourself. A book that says, “It’s going to be okay. The world is full of good things, and tomorrow will be better.”

I don’t think a lot of people know about the book Suddenly Single by Carol Wyer, but this was such a beautiful story! Our main character, Chloe, was recently cheated on and she decides to pack up and move to a quieter lifestyle in Sunny Meadows Farm. She is diagnosed with severe social anxiety disorder, which was really heartwarming and relatable for me to read, and the story essentially follows her life trying to write another best-selling novel, while also trying to meet new friends and have a love life with her disorder! She also has a cute little dog which made this story extra adorable! Essentially this book made me have more faith in myself to come out of my bubble more, and that life itself always gets better even when it doesn’t feel that way!



9.     Just as it’s lovely to be comforted by books, it can be lovely to pass the comfort along. Imagine you were putting together a cozy comfort basket for your neighbor (or friend, loved one, take your pick), which book(s) would you include?

I would most likely give The Hating Game by Sally Thorne and In 5 Years by Rebecca Serle. These books are very different from each other and I think that’s why I chose them. The Hating Game is a funny, lighthearted rom-com with the workplace enemies to lovers trope and I personally feel like this will be a romance I constantly come back to every couple of years! In 5 Years, on the other hand, is more of a coming-of-age story containing some magical realism, and is all about a woman and her relationship with her job, best friend, and fiancée! Both of these books were super quick reads but also funny, adorable, and meaningful!



10.  Though we’d like to stay curled up indoors with our books forever, we’ve got to venture into the world again sometime. A walk in the woods always helps me feel refreshed. Tell us about a book with beautiful nature writing, or a book that restores your peace.

The first book that comes to mind is the first book of the Ravenhood series, Flock by Kate Stewart! While I wouldn’t necessarily consider this story peaceful by any means, there are a few moments that feel peaceful, such as going on a beautiful hike or reading in bed while it’s raining. Because the main character, Cecelia, moves to a small town called Triple Falls, there are a lot of nature references and adventures that she goes on with different love interests! I absolutely adored this series and regardless if it’s considered “peaceful” or not, I think this would be an awesome book to read out in nature!
