I've been going through the most trying time of my life in the past year, dealing with health issues that threaten to overwhelm me. One day last week, when I was feeling particularly low, I broke out one of my "ICE" books. Do you know what those are? They are books I know I'll love, that I keep just for emergencies.
Sometimes I need to know I'll love a book and not have to try to like it, like I do with so many review requests. Usually my ICE books are series books, written by authors I love, and I'm almost never disappointed by them (except for Mockingjay, as you well know).
Last week, my ICE book was the latest Bloodlines novel, The Indigo Spell. Except the funny thing is, just having that book out, knowing I could start reading it at any time, was enough for me. Just looking at the cover makes me feel better. That's a powerful thing---a book that makes me feel better before I even start reading it!
Do you have any 'In Case of Emergency' books? If so, what are they?
