Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s theme is:
April 16: Rainy Day Reads
If there’s one thing we bookworms love, it’s cosying up with a good book when it’s pouring with rain outside. Bonus points if it’s a weekend.
Sometimes it’s nice to have a book at the ready so you can dive right in when the weather gets bad. Here are just a few that are ideal to save and pick up on a rainy day.
This just in: soft contemporaries make for perfect rainy day reads.
If you want to feel better about the poor weather then reading a sweet story about friendship, romance, and adventure is guaranteed to do the trick.
Romantic graphic novels also make for excellent bad weather books. Maximum cosiness vibes guaranteed.
I love the colours and art style of both Heartstopper and Always Human and both are perfect to read when it’s raining. (Speaking from experience.)
Princess Princess is one that I’m hoping to read this year, and I’m definitely saving it for a rainy day.
Typically, we associate rain with sadness or despondency, so what better thing to read on a rainy day than funny books.
Carry On had me laughing out loud at some of the interactions between Baz and Simon, and Invictus and TGG are the ideal blend of witty and fun humour that suits me perfectly.
Which books do you like to pick up on a rainy day? Do you prefer reading when it’s sunny or raining?
