Another vote for Harry Potter!  I just finished reading them for the 3rd time, and I am seriously obsessed!  I tried to explain my obsession to my non-reader husband, but he just doesn’t get it.  We went on a date right after I fininshed the 6th book, so I had just read the big battle scene at the end of that book.  I was acting kind of quiet and weird and my husband commented on it, and I tried to explain how I get so into books that I start to feel like I’m in them.  So I had basically just experienced the crazy adrenaline rush from battle, and the exaustion that comes after it.  He just didn’t get it.  He also looked at me like I was crazy when I was bawling through Dumbledore’s funeral.  🙂  I’m seriously tearing up right now just thinking about it.

To Kill a Mockingbird, Dragonriders of Pern (the whole series!), Harry Potter, Pride & Prejudice (well, anything by Jane Austen), Sword of Truth (especially Wizard’s First Rule and Faith of the Fallen), Outlander

Honestly, reading a book is my go-to comfort… and if I own the book, I’ve probably reread it multiple times.

@glitter-girl:  A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is such a fantastic book. I read it for the first time last year, and couldn’t believe it took me so long to read it.

 

I’m another Jane Austen fan girl.  P&P is my go-to audio book for long car rides.

@HisMoon:  That Pendragon Cyle sounds awesome! I’ll have to try it.

@TLDR:  Did you see the Ender’s Game movie? I love the books, too, and just saw the movie yesterday.
