Looking for an escape? These 6 books are about to give you just that.
Reading has always been my number one form of self-care and my biggest escape. Whether I’m stressed or just want to relax, I turn to books for comfort. Fantasy is, by far, my favorite genre, because it is the furthest thing from reality. I could consider nearly every fantasy novel an “escape read,” but there are a few that really stand out to me.
In order for a book to really fall into this category, they have to transport me to somewhere so completely magical and unique that I can’t possibly think of reality while reading. One of my favorite feelings in the world is falling so deeply into a book that I forget where I am entirely. The books I’ve listed in this post did precisely that!
