Books as a security blanket.

As a young reader I was always fascinated by historical fiction and books that took place in different time periods from the past. I loved reading about travels in The Magic Treehouse series, learning things about different wars and historical events through the American Girl and Dear America books, and I very much loved reading the Little House on the Prairie series.

Although I still enjoy reading books with a strong historical background, I’ve been exploring so many different authors, genres, and styles this year that I don’t feel like I have a “favorite genre” at the moment. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. I really enjoy reading new things and expanding my comfort zone, but it’s alway nice to have that certain kind of book you know you can fall back on when you’re going through a reading slump or are having a bad day. I’m just not sure what book(s) that is for me now. I’m not worried about it though, I’m sure I’ll figure it out soon.

What books or genres would you consider your “security blanket”? Let me know in the comments below!
