TTT: Rainy Day Reads


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was 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.

April 16: Rainy Day Reads

When I started this list, I sat here for about 5 minutes thinking “what r books…” I had nothing. But as soon as I listed one it was like this dam broke and I had all these ideas immediately come to mind.

And this kind of brought up a question of, does anyone else ever feel weird to recommend older books? I constantly feel like I need to be recommending newer books, I also feel like I keep recommending the same books over and over, and if I’m over it I can only imagine how annoying it is on the other side of the screen.

Sea Witch
by Sarah Henning

I loved the atmosphere this book had, I also think this would be a great beach read because I could almost feel salt water on my skin.

The Bear and the Nightingale
by Katherine Arden

I loved reading these in winter or rainy days, again it really enhances the atmosphere in the story.

This Savage Song
by Victoria Schwab

I love darker fantasies on rainy days and I think This Savage Song would fit the bill perfectly.

Every Heart A Doorway
by Seanan McGuire

This is a great quick read, perfect for a rainy day.

Three Dark Crowns
by Kendare Blake

More dark fantasy.

The Winter Sea
by Susanna Kearsley

This is a mix of historical fiction and modern day, a writer is taking a trip through Scotland researching one of the Jacobite rebellions. I loved the writing and read it through some rainy days.

The Wrath and The Dawn
by Renee Ahdieh

This immediately came to mind for a rainy day read, another mysterious fantasy.

The Girl of Fire and Thorns
by Rae Carson

I feel like I never see people talking about this but its a phenomenal trilogy with a badass main character who isn’t a typical punch everything to solve everything kind of character.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
by Michelle Hodkin

Another dark paranormal read.

The Simple Wild
by K.A. Tucker

I feel like rainy days are perfect times to read books that might make you sad, its just the perfect weather for it.

What are some of your rainy day reads?

  1. This is such a great list! Ooooo Sea Witch sounds interesting! I absolutely love it when a book’s writing is so powerful that it transports you elsewhere! Will definitely be adding this to my TBR. I really need to read more seafaring novels 🙂

    I love that you chose a Victoria Schwab novel. I actually had a Darker Shade of Magic on my list since I still have yet to read This Savage Song. Would you recommend it?

    OMG I completely agree with you on The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. That is such a perfect paranormal thriller read with an unreliable narrator which keeps you on the edge of your seat! Great choices!! 🙂
