For comfort books, I really enjoy Jenny Colgan's romances. They're mostly set in ridiculously cute small towns in the UK, where a girl from the city shows up and opens a bookstore or bakery or something, and falls in love with some unrealistically-chill local dude. The nice thing is that the books do deal with mental health and poverty, and have gay and multi-racial characters. I really like them.
Finished my reread of Gaudy Night for book club. I enjoyed it, but it is seriously classist, y'all. None more classist. I highlighted several sections with the note "yikes!"
