Comfort books! We all have them.

What books do you turn to when you're having the world's most terrible day and the universe seems to be knocking you down and then kicking you in the teeth? What makes a comfort read for you?

My list's over here. Thank you to birdgirl_1107 for the idea!

The Harry Potter books are always the ultimate comfort for me. And sometimes a sugary Sarah Dessen novel. Or any teen lit novel that's written well.

I usually head for the L.M. Montgomery or one of my favorite Tamora Pierce titles.

I usually go for a childhood favorite like L.M. Montgomery or Frances Hodgson Burnett.

Either The Hobbit, most of Terry Pratchett's Discworld books (especially the Watch and Witches storylines) or Tamora Pierce's Tortall books (especially Protector of the Small).

I posted my list here: http://akikotree.livejournal.com/45617.html

Following what seems to be a pattern, it contains both "The Hobbit" and Tamora Pierce :)

Carol Christ's book on her trip to Crete.
It's about women finding the Goddess.
It"s about finding one's self, connecting with others, seeing beauty.
It reminds me of who I am, where I've been and what I want to be.

Harry Potter. Almost anything Diana Wynne Jones that I can find in the house. Occasionally, Megan Whalen Turner. And L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables, because it reminds me of guileless childhood.
