Happy Top 5 Tuesday, book friends!
This week’s prompt is rainy day reads! I love reading on a rainy day, particularly during a thunderstorm. But thinking of specific books that are good for reading in the rain? That’s a tough one! Let’s see what I can come up with.
Hawksong by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
This is the ultimate comfort read for me and was my favorite book when I was younger. I’ve read my copy so many times, it’s a miracle it hasn’t fallen apart. These days, I can read it pretty easily in the span of a day, and the thought of curling up under the blankets with it on a rainy day sounds super cozy.
Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling
Sometimes, rainy days can a bit gloomy, particularly if you have several in a row. Mindy Kaling never fails to make me laugh out loud, and this audiobook is a good one when I need a little bit of imaginary sunshine on a rainy day.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
The rain sometimes makes me want to pretend technology doesn’t exist, and what better way to travel to a pre-television past than with Jane Austen?
I can’t think of a specific title, so this is more of a vibe. When the weather is raging, I love to read about witches and magic. There’s something about rain that makes magic feel a little more possible, don’t you think?
Whatever I’m Currently Reading
Clearly, I don’t strongly associate particular types of books with rainy weather. I just like to curl up with whatever I’m currently reading when the rain comes down, so I’m cheating and making this my fifth pick.
Those are my rainy day picks for the week! What about yours?
