Top Ten Tuesday

April Showers: Rainy Day Reads

20240102 April Showers Rainy Day Reads

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Hi everybody and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s topic is April Showers and I decided to highlight a few books I think are perfect rainy day reads. If I think about a rainy day read, it can be any genre (though I love fantasy the most) but with atmospheric *vibes*. They have some whimsy to them and they’re books you can just completely lose yourself in so much that the rain outside completely fades away (or just becomes a part of the *atmosphere*).

So I came up with the below 10 examples that make perfect rainy day reads for me:

  1. I spy some really popular and hyped books on your list this week! I know lots of people loved Leigh’s and of course “The Dead Romantics” looks interesting, too. πŸ™‚ I love a good cozy rainy day read. Mine would probably be a solid romance. story.

    1. Thanks! Oh a solid romance is always nice too!

  2. Great take on the prompt! Divine Rivals, Belladonna, The Dead Romantics and Wolfsong are perfect rainy day reads. 😍 I still have to pick up Addie LaRue but can imagine it would be too!

    1. Thanks! Hope you’ll love Addie LaRue when you pick it up (perhaps on a rainy day πŸ˜‰ )

  3. There’s nothing like losing yourself in a book on a rainy day.

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.

    1. So true!

  4. Yes, definitely agree that a rainy day book has a certain “vibe” – atmospheric is a great way to describe it!

    1. Thanks!

  5. The Dead Romantics would be a great rainy day read! I loved that book.

    1. Me too, and it would indeed be perfect for a rainy day πŸ™‚

    You inspired me today Lindsey!

    1. Yay, thanks Sophie! πŸ™‚

  7. You have some wonderful-sounding books on your list this week, Lindsey. For me a good rainy day read is any book I’m reading while it’s raining. LOL!

    1. Haha so true, Pam! πŸ™‚

  8. I think you were smart to go in this direction. I thought about it, but figured the original topic wouldn’t be hard…it was, LOL!

    1. It was indeed so much trickier than it sounded at first haha πŸ™‚

  9. This was a brilliant take on the topic!! I totally agree with so many of these reads. I still need to read Belladonna! I have heard such great things.

    1. Thanks so much! I LOVED Belladonna, hope you will too!

      1. Thank you!! I think I will love it! πŸ™‚

  10. I love a good rainy/stormy setting, especially in thrillers. If it’s raining outside that just adds to the reading experience, like you said.

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!
