Lighter Reads During Stressful Times
*This post contains Amazon affiliate links.
Lately, have you found it difficult to focus on reading?
Do you have more difficulty than usual focusing on heavier reading material?
Reading can help pass the time when you’re confined to home and you’ve finished Netflix!
As COVID-19 escalated, so did the anxiety. March found me setting aside heavier reads and searching out easy, engaging, and light reads. I have heard the same sentiments from other reading friends across social media. This motivated me to consider creating a book list focusing on lighter reads! I pulled the following titles from my Goodreads “Read” shelf. I enjoy my lighter reads with a side of substance and low on steam, so these might not be as light or steamy as you’re looking for. Certainly, there are hundreds of titles that I haven’t read that can be added to this list. I can guarantee, though, that these titles do not come with serious trigger or content warnings. Check out the list, and let me know your favorite light reading recommendations in the comments.
I hope you are finding some comfort and distraction through reading during these worrisome times. Be safe everyone!

(sometimes a light-hearted and heartfelt middle-grade read is a perfect read!)
What have you been reading during these stressful times?
Do you have recommendations for lighter reads?

“I read because books are a form of transportation, of teaching, and of connection! Books take us to places we’ve never been, they teach us about our world, and they help us to understand human experience.”
