Whether you are reading for comfort or rediscovery what books & authors do you return to?
In the past year, I've done a lot of re-reading or listening to series I had read in print before. With all the uncertainty during the campaign and since the election, I needed more than just the promise of an HEA at the end to help get through books, I need the familiar beats of books I had once read or at the very least of authors whose voice I already knew well. I binge read a lot of series this year, because it was less exhausting to sink deeply into a new world than jump around and explore in new ones each day.
In my re-reading I went back listened and re-read a bunch of Kristen Ashley contemporaries, and Nalini Singh Psy-changeling books. I also very recently listened and re-read Lisa Kleypas's Wallflower books, Anne Bishop's The Others series and Mary Balogh's Bedwyn Series.
I always get something new from a re-read, a connection I had missed the first time, a stand-out line that resonates even more the second time around or simply the delight of reading old-friends again.
As to the authors I have read the most books by, I recently learned that GoodReads tracks this.
This list was super interesting to see as it is a fascinating mix of the authors with extensive backlists I binge read when I first entered romance (Stephanie Laurens, Nalini Singh, Mary Balogh, Lisa Kleypas) , prolific Kindle Unlimited authors I binge read since last summer (TS Joyce, Ruby Dixon) and more current favorites (Courtney Milan, Kit Rocha, Laura Florand, Lauren Dane, Shelly Laurenston.)
