For the past few days I’ve been laying in my grandma’s guest room, barely able to move a muscle, super-dead sick.
I caught the flu, and I am too far from home to go back, so I had to settle for going to my grandma (which is super fun, I promise.)
But what do you do when you’re dead sick and not at home? Well, you read.
So here are five books I think would be great for anybody who’s too sick to get out to the sun and breathe some fresh air, or basically, to anyone who is in my current condition.
1. Any Brandon Sanderson Book
For the picture I did go with the Mistborn Trilogy, as it is my favorite series Sanderson has written so far, but I think any Brandon Sanderson would be good for someone who feels to sick to do anything. His books are so good you devour them, and they can make you feel better in any situation. Even when you’re laying in bed with a box of tissues beside you!
2. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
This book is one of my favorites, as you all know. But I think it’s really good for a sick day because it is so easy to read. It is quick paced, and I’ll be honest, you don’t have to give much thought for the first book. You can read it very quickly and without even noticing, you’re already healthy and done with the whole trilogy.
3. The Martian by Andy Weir
I love The Martian. Everyone who knows me, knows it’s my all time favorite book. I’ll admit, you do need to be a little sober for this book, so if you’re way too sick to concentrate on the science sad this book might not be the best for you, but on the other hand, it is so funny and thrilling, you can be in any condition and still enjoy the book.
4. Red Rising by Pierce Brown
The reason I think this book is good for a sick day is because it is super hard to get into this book. You need to take time when you read this book, and really get into it. You need to give it a chance. And when is a better time to take time to get into a book than when you’re dead sick and have nothing else to do?
5. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
When I’m sick, it tends to also make me sad. And Fangirl is the happiest book I know. It warms your heart, and it makes you happy. You can be sick, but you just can’t be sad while reading this book.
These are some books I think are super fun to read when you’re sick like I am this week. I hope you guys take time and try reading these. And I hope, if any of you are sick, that you’ll get well soon!
