T5W: Rainy Day Reads

What time is it? Well it’s Top 5 Wednesday time!

Hi again! and welcome to another Top 5 Wednesday. Today’s topic is our Favourite Rainy Day Reads – in other words books we just want to spend the day curled up under blanket while it rains outside.

Before we get onto books I like to delve into when it rains, I would like to mention that Top 5 Wednesday was created over on BookTube by the wonderful Laniey at gingerreadslaniey. Also you can check out the Goodreads page for past and future topics.

The books are listed in no particular order.


Now onto the books!


#5 Lilith by George MacDonald


Nothing like a fantasy book to chase the rain away. I adore this book, for me it’s Alice in Wonderland meet Edgar Allan Poe.

#4 The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allen Poe


Gothic fiction is perfect for a rainy day and who better to read then the Godfather of Horror. If you’re new to Poe I would recommend this story or his classic The Raven.

#3 Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck


This is a perfect little book that’s easy to get through in one sitting. This book never fails to draw me in and leave me in tears.


#2 Goddess of Spring by P.C Cast


Who am I kidding? Any book in this series is the perfect way to spend a dreary winter day. This one is a personal favourite because who doesn’t love the myth of Hades and Persephone.

#1 The Kingmaker’s Daughter by Philippa Gregory


And I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t include a historical novel. This is a favourite as it’s one of the first I read about Anne Neville and Richard III. Their relationship is beautiful and heart warming.


That’s all for me. Comment down below and let me know which books are your favourite rainy day reads.

Until next time, happy reading!
