Happy Friday, all!
It’s a rainy, tea-drinking sort of Friday here in New York. We’ve been a household of plague, with my overachieving kindergartner bringing home both flu and strep (viral and bacterial all in one adorable, germy package!), so it’s been a week heavy on comfort reads for me, starting with the madcap joys of Jennifer Crusie’s Agnes and the Hitman and Welcome to Temptation.
After that, I went back to the calm certainties of Josephine Tey’s Alan Grant mysteries, which I’ve been rereading entirely out of order as the mood takes me. This time it was To Love and Be Wise, which I liked better on a reread than I had initially (it’s very hard to measure up to The Franchise Affair and Brat Farrar), A Shilling for Candles, and The Singing Sands, which leaves me only The Man in the Queue and The Franchise Affair for the next time I need soothing.
What are your favorite comfort reads? And what have you been reading this week?
