Today’s Book Blogger Hop question is: What is a book that has helped you get through your lowest point in life?
I don’t know that I can point to any one book at any one moment in life helping me…but I do know that Terry Pratchett books are especially good if life is blue or stressful. I also like rereading L. M. Montgomery’s journals. I find biographies in general are often good for perspective, because they remind me how long and variable life actually is. Right now, during rather a strange and anxious time in the world, I’m on my second Star Trek novel, because I appreciate a hopeful book at the moment.
I was fortunate to read When Bad Things Happen to Good People by Harold Kushner when I wasn’t going through a particularly bad time, but I think it would be a very good book for that kind of crisis.
What books have helped you in bad days? Do you have go-to authors for difficult times?
One thought on “Blog Hop: Books for Low Days”
I don’t have a particular “comfort” book or series, but when I am in a difficult time, I like to read escapist books, whether they be about travel to foreign places, romance novels, humorous novels, or biographies about my favorite famous people.
