Sorry this post is coming to everyone so late!
If you live in the U.S. or you pay attention to what happens in the U.S., then you know that we’re about to have a massive hurricane hit Florida — which means that Jenn, Caitlynn and I (and about 21 million Floridians) are trying to prepare for it.
It also means that I didn’t finish the bone season because God forbid I have time to actually sit down and read. -_-
Anyway, with the storm coming, I thought it would be cool to do my top five rainy day reads.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
When the fifth book in the Harry Potter series came out I was about 11 years old and I had just started to really get into reading. I remember spending a lot of time lying in my bed reading this book on rainy days that summer and just really appreciating the time I had with it.
Eleanor and Park
Nothing is better than reading a Rainbow Rowell book on a rainy day. This story is quick, poignant and beautifully written.
A Study in Charlotte
While it’s not set in England like the original Sherlock Holmes books, it still worthy of being a rainy day read. Like Rowell’s novel, A Study in Charlotte is a quick read and the story is phenomenal. Add a rainy day to the ambiance of reading it and it just makes this book so much better.
Eliza and Her Monsters
I actually read Eliza and Her Monsters on a rainy day. It fits the mood perfectly for this book. Plus, the book is just amazing period.
Looking for Alaska
John Green’s Looking for Alaska is a quick read and it works perfectly to pass the time while waiting for the rain to subside.
