Top 5 Books for Sick Reading

Friday, January 12, 2018

I was sick A LOT in 2017 (and I'm actually just getting over a cold, so 2018 isn't looking great either), nothing crazy or big, just a lot of sneezing, coughing, and plenty of fevers. For some reason in 2017, there was no such thing as that annoying cold you could power through with a box of tissues next to you, they all knocked me right on my bum and left me there for a minimum of three days. Most of the time, I was too sick to read, but when I could, I read the fluffiest, and sometimes crappiest books in the world. They were super comforting!!! In the spirit of list making, allow me to share some of those with you here.

There really aren't words to describe how bad this book was. I'm a Librarian, I know a lot about bikers (they got it all wrong by the way), so I had to know. It's... just... *sigh*, but I enjoyed reading in my haze of fever at 2 in the morning.

Way back when, I reviewed this book. In my opinion it's not great, but I think it could have been great. The concept was solid, the characters, were pleasant, the romance was freaking HOT, but it was just missing something (and they said "I just want to know what's going on" 20 times too many). I actually scanned through this book like... 10 times. I'd take Gabriel in a second!

All of these books, I flip sick read all of them, particularly the first two. I am a hard core fan of urban fantasy and I love this werewolf series. If I start to go into it, I'll never stop. If you don't know it, please educate yourself. 

This book was in my Top 10 of 2017 post because it's just so darn cute. I like the banter, and the evolution of their relationship, even though there was a "I just realized that I though I hated him but all this time I loved him" moment. I'm willing to look past that. You should too. I scan this book at least once a week.This is the least diverse cover ever. I'm horrible guys.

Can we all just appreciate this cover please!! This is a great book to read when you're sick because Elyse (our heroine) was in an accident and can't talk. So while we're miserable about our sore throat in bed, she's miserable about hers too (although she just plain can't talk... so I guess that's worse than a sore throat). 

So here they are. My top 5 books to read when I'm sick. Looking at the list, Cry Wolf kind of sticks out, but there's love and romance... kind of... It's complicated. But it totally fit's with my "I'm sick, I don't have anyone to make me soup, or cuddle me, where's my love and romance???!!!" theme for sick days. 

P.S. I honestly don't want love and romance, but when I get sick, I get delusional.


  1. I hope that you feel better soon! It is a great time to read those fun, fluffy books, for sure. I have wanted to read The Hating Game for a while now. I am glad that you enjoyed it. I am bookmarking this for when I need a little reading suggestion if I find myself under the weather. :)

    1. I am feeling better. I've hardly sneezed at all today. The Hating Game is one of my favorite books. I hope you enjoy it when you get around to it!

  2. I hate being sick! At least if you are sick, you can read some good books to help you feel better. I really enjoyed Mermaids and The Hating Game.

    1. I know. I'm a miserable sick person. I turn into a puddle of goo. I don't know anyone else who's read The Hating Game!! I'm glad you liked it too!
