Have you ever enjoyed something so much that you couldn’t stand it and had to walk away? Probably not.

Right now, I’m reading the fourth book in a paranormal romance series (Darklight by Bella Forrest.) I was really enjoying the tension and the chemistry between the two leads, but things started going poorly for the characters. Like, things are really, really bad. Normally, I might just plow through, but not this time. I can hardly take any tension at the moment, so I’ve had to put the book aside. Will Dorian, Lyra and company escape the Rulers? Probably. For now, they’re going to have to do so without my knowing.

Tension is great. High stakes? Woot-woot! But there’s a lot on my plate right now, tension- and stakes-wise, in real life, so I’m benched. Give me something fluffy to read. There is absolutely nothing wrong with fluff. I love fluff. It has no less value than the more mentally stimulating stuff. So. Any recommendations welcome in the comments.

Keep your nose in a book (and a mask),

  1. Hard to choose. (I’m fond of fluff)
    – Anything by P.G. Wodehouse. Favorites available on request.
    – Georgette Heyer’s Regency romances
    – Old-time children’s books. I’m fond of Elizabeth Enright’s Melendy series.
    – Connie Willis’s SF romantic comedies: Crosstalk, To Say Nothing of the Dog, Uncharter Territory, Bellwether . . .
    – Lois McMaster Bujold’s A Civil Campaign. (If you’re not familiar with the Vorkosigan series, first read her book Komarr.)
    Sophie Kinsella’s rom-coms (anything except the Shopaholic books)
    More where those came from!
