Top Ten Tuesday: Rainy Day Reads (4/16/19)

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl 

You can also view the rules over on her blog, but they are pretty self-explanatory.

  1. Love and Ruin by Paula McLain: I loved this novel, and I think the style of writing suits a rainy day. It also deals with some heavier topics which work for those gloomy rainy days.
  2. The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan: This is a heavy read, but it works. It’s slow during some parts of the story which may be what you need on a rainy day.
  3. The Vegetarian by Han Kang: This is an odd read, as well as sad. I think the only kind of day you can read this on is a rainy one. It takes a second to get into, but I promise it’s worth it.
  4. The Boy at the Door by Alex Dahl: I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this as much as I did. It’s a Scandinavian read, and it is well written! I genuinely recommend if you’re looking for a practical suspense novel.
  5. The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd: This is a decent historical fiction novel based on a real woman. I think the writing style would work for those rainy days. Anything historical fiction would work for rainy days, honestly.
  6. The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch: This is an exceptional fantasy read that you can sit down and read for hours. You will immerse yourself in this hilarious heist that the Gentleman Bastards partake. It has similar language to The Lord of the Rings, except it is less confusing and more explicit.
  7. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr: Oh my goodness, this is probably the best rainy day read. It is a chunky book, but the chapters are short. You can probably get through it in one to two days if you don’t want to leave the house.
  8. Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire: This was my favorite book in the Wayward Children series. I don’t think this is the best one in the series specifically for a rainy day, but I didn’t like the second one. I don’t really want to recommend one that I didn’t like.
  9. Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia: I only gave this a three-star rating but, if you like to read young adult novels, then this is for you. It is a glorious rainy day read because it deals with a girl who fights with anxiety. She struggles to obtain friends. Therefore she writes fan fiction for her favorite webcomic Monstrous Sea. It gave me those rainy day vibes.
  10. The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien: Does this novel need an explanation?
