This week’s topic is pretty cool! Today we are talking about our favorite rainy days reads so basically the best books to read under a blanket and/or with a hot drink when the weather is ugly.
It’s a pretty funny topic for me because, I just moved and in my new town, the weather is always bad. Seriously in a month, I think that I only had five days without rain. It is raining now by the way. If you want to have a sunny day in France, I would only recommend the south…
Anyway, here are my top 5 rainy day reads !
- The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
I really love this trilogy and I would recommend it at all time but it would make a great rainy day read. You will be so entranced by the story that you won’t even hear the rain anymore! 😉
- The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton
This is a literary fiction book set in the New Zealand during the gold rush and it is amazing. It’s a 800+ pages book but I couldn’t put it down. I actually read in it when I was in vacation in Spain so not exactly somewhere where the weather is awful but it would make an incredible ‘under the blanket with a mug of tea’ read!
- The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
This book has a pretty dark atmosphere and if you’re like me and that you don’t want to read horror because you’re scared of your own shadow but you still want to read a book with a creepy-ish feel to it, I can’t recommend this enough!
- The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories by Ken Liu
I read this very recently and as I said before, it is always raining in my new city so, I basically read this during rainy days and under my blanket and it was perfect, so yeah, it makes an amazing rainy day read. 😛
- Europe in Autumn by Dave Hutchinson
This is a dark and thrilling read and it is perfect for rainy days. It is basically in the title 😉
What about you? Do you have any great rainy day reads to recommend?
