| these are some of the books that are directly or indirectly mentioned in the guernsey literary and potato peel pie society |

this book is set in the year immediately succeeding the world war ii. you can well imagine that the desecration caused by the war, both of the land and the soul, took years to be repaired, and even then neither could be restored fully. the book is written in a series of letters exchanged between juliet ashton, a 32 year old bestseller writer, and the inhabitants of guernsey, an island in the english channel.
~
having published a bestseller with stephen and stark publishing house, co-owned by her best friend’s brother, sidney, juliet is looking for a subject for her new novel when she receives a letter from dawsey adams, a stranger living in guernsey who possesses juliet’s copy of essays of elia. he enlists juliet’s help for finding more works of charles lamb, looking to quench his thirst for lamb’s splendid writing but clueless as to how to do that himself.
~
juliet’s correspondence with dawsey reveals to her the existence of one the guernsey literary and potato peel pie society, which was conjured as an excuse by elizabeth (another inhabitant of guernsey) for breaking the curfew during the german occupation of the island. intrigued, juliet begins exchanging letters with several other members of the society who share their stories of what reading meant for them, hoping to work them into an article she’s required to pen for a newspaper.
~
however, as juliet continues her communication with the people of guernsey, her interest in their lives extends beyond professional reasons. she begins to feel deeply involved in their experiences and decides to visit the island and meet her ‘new friends’. what unfolds there holds the potential of being transformed into a book. you’ll have to read for yourself to find out what happens.
~
i loved the book and i am so grateful that i did not dismiss it as a flimsy read. i think i now have a go-to comfort book.

The enduring appeal of #pgwodehouse lies in his ability to weave an entertaining farce. he makes you believe that all’s well with the world.none better than mr.wodehouse to lift the spirits up.#favoriteauthor #comfortreads #bookstagram ~~happy birthday to the master of wry wit.

“in her attic bedroom margaret murry, wrapped in an old patchwork quilt, sat on the foot of her bed and watched the trees tossing in the frenzied lashing of the wind. behind the trees clouds scudded frantically across the sky. every few moments the moon ripped through them, creating wraithlike shadows that raced along the ground.” a wrinkle in time by madeline l’engle
_________________________
“trees” is the prompt for today, & i thought it fitting that the second paragraph of what is quite possibly my all-time favorite book is about the trees during a storm. i first read a wrinkle in time when i was in 5th grade, & i instantly fell in love with it. it’s one of the few books that i can actually read more than once, & not only that but enjoy it every single time. that being said, i hated the movie, and i was so disappointed by it (even though i have always seen mrs. which as a woman resembling oprah).
_________________________
i decided that i needed some comfort reading this weekend before the spookathon challenge starts (& to distract me from my anxiety this weekend), so i’m wrapping myself up in the always-present comfort i find in a wrinkle in time. it’s like wrapping yourself up in a warm blanket that’s fresh out of the dryer on a cold winter morning. what books feel like that to you?

In my life, i have come across countless books. i love discovering new stories and characters. but i have only ever come across three books that i will reread and reread and reread. in fact, i think i've lost track of how many times i've read the descent. i even have multiple copies in different formats, lol. .
do you have that one special book that you revisit again and again?

Neil and alice are two of my go to authors for comfort reading or to get me out of reading slumps. there’s some magic buried in all their pages. .

My sunday morning coffee companion...
i picked up the 17th (😯) book in the coffeehouse series by @cleocoyle_author . i’ve been a long time reader of this cozy mystery series and find it so comforting and familiar to return to my new york peeps. love this series, the characters, & the setting. it’s just what i need after a late post-homecoming night. and lots and lots of ☕️.

I keep coming back to alfred tarski’s ”logic, semantics, metamathematics” and his ”the concept of truth in formalized languages”. it must be these times we are living in...

"and harry remembered his first nightmarish trip into the forest, the first time he had ever encountered the thing that was then voldemort, and how he had faced him, and how he and dumbledore had discussed fighting a losing battle not long thereafter. it was important, dumbledore said, to fight, and fight again, and keep fighting, for only then could evil be kept at bay, though never quite eradicated. . . ." #keepfighting #notmypresident #fucktrump #lyingliarswholie #fightandfightagain #potterwisdom #dumbledore #potterheads #comfortreads #trumpisaslytherin

Blue books for a blue day, although i wouldn't necessarily consider these comfort reads! 😂 i've not actually read any of them yet, for me a comfort read is an old favourite like the gift or harry potter. what about you?

Curled up with a book i find both empowering and soothing. hope you all are doing your own versions of self care amidst the news, too. (@watchprernawrite, i couldn’t resist a reread after our convo!)

There are few things in life better than having a stack of great books to choose from, especially a stack of favourites and comfort reads. the books i always go to when i need a good comfort read are 'the seer and the sword' by victoria hanley, 'persuasion' by jane austen and 'the blue castle' by l. m. montgomery. they're familiar and gentle and warm and perfect for days when i just need to snuggle up with a good book. one day maybe my own book 'the crystal tree' will be someone's comfort read. that would be the dream!⠀

Continuing my re-read of the saga of the exiles with the 2nd book: the golden torc.

i'd love to find some nice hardbacks for this series, but they were only issued as paperbacks in the uk, and the us hb covers are truly awful. 😟

What's you're go-to comfort genre?
.
mine is always a good horror or some stephen king. i've been trying to read outside of my comfort zone a little since joining #bookstagram and have found lots of great authors i love.
.
today i actually read for a good few hours and finished small great things, not my usual thing. i slept the rest of the time, which is why i'm posting late.
.
i don't know why my body is constantly tired, but all i seem to do lately is work, ache and try and sleep it off!
.
...better get some sleep before work...

#bookreadhappyhour - comfort genre.
