Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Perfect 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 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!
This week’s TTT topic is Rainy Day Reads. This was a surprisingly hard topic for me, I guess mainly because as a book nerd, I think pretty much every book is great for a rainy day. So I got to thinking about it and decided to focus in on books I think would consume readers so thoroughly they would actually forget it was even raining outside. For me, that list contains both some old favorites and some new ones that have sucked me in and kept me reading all day. Both Kristin Hannah and Taylor Jenkins Reid feature prominently on my list as I’m currently addicted their their books. Harry Potter of course made my list. I picked one book for here but honestly any book would be perfect.

What are some of your favorite rainy day reads?
I so need to get to The Bride Test! I also had the same problem with my list — every book is a good rainy day book lol Also, my sister is currently raving about Daisy Jones — and so has pretty much everyone else who has reviewed it i think! definitely on on my list too.

Daisy Jones is fantastic. I’ve also been hearing great things about the audiobook version so I’m very tempted to re-read it that way.
I want to try Kristin Hannah as well Suzanne! And don’t start me on the Bride Test…

LOL! I just finished The Bride Test over the weekend and really loved it. I’m still flailing too much to write my review!
I would totally agree with The Night Circus – definitely the kind of book you get lost in, imagining the different scenes.
Yes! I remember that was a book that I just couldn’t put down once I started it. I still need to do a re-read of it some day.
Yes! Great list. Completely agree with TJR books!

I’m so obsessed with her books right now!
I definitely associate rainy days with easy, comfort reads, so I’d personally stay away from anything too heavy or depressing. Harry Potter is perfect!
Tammy @ Books, Bones & Buffy recently posted…THE LUMINOUS DEAD by Caitlin Starling – Review
Yes! HP is so easy to get lost in no matter how many times I re-read it.
So many awesome picks! I agree that the Taylor Jenkins Reid book would be perfect rainy day reads. And almost anything by Kristin Hannah, too.
Tanya @ Girl Plus Books recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday: Rainy Day Reads
Yes, those two authors’ books are my two current favorites to just get lost in.
Great list! I really want to give The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and Daisy Jones & The Six a try.
Jess @ Jessticulates recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday | Books to sweep you away on a rainy day
Those are both such great reads. I hope you love them!
You’re making me want to reread To Kill a Mockingbird. Such a great story.
Lydia recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday: Rainy Day Reads
That’s one of my favorites to re-read. I never get tired of it.
I loved this post Suzanne!!! I agree with The Night Circus, To Kill A Mocking Bird, and The Hunger Games. I put my TTT in the website.

I need to read Daisy Jones and the Six, it sounds incredible.
Greg recently posted…Top Ten
It’s so good. I hear the audio version is especially amazing!
The Night Circus is a great one, so atmospheric, perfect for a rainy day!
Jo recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday #207
Definitely. I really want to re-read that one soon too. It has been way too long.
Well, you have two books that are guaranteed to make tears predicate from me – Me Before You and The Nightingale. So emotional.

Same. I bawled like a baby while reading both of those.
A great kist of books indeed!

What a great list! Totally agree on Harry Potter and The Night Circus! The Hunger Games would be nice comfort reads as well.
Jordan Rose recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday: Rainy Day Reads
I love the sound of all of these, Suzanne, and I love rainy day reads and rainy day reading! It’s truly the best!
I love rainy day reading too. I find it very calming.
The Bride Test is definitely on the list of books I have to read. I also need to read The Great Alone. I got it when it was on sale at some point, which means I have no excuse except making time to read it!
Brooke Lorren recently posted…Rainy Day Reads
I hope you enjoy The Great Alone. I really loved the Alaskan setting.
I think every book is great for every day 😛 so I like your take on this. The Night Circus is one of those books I’ve said for years I would read, and I’ve finally stopped saying it lol, but I do hope to find the time for it eventually!

I hope you enjoy it when you do finally read it. 🙂
The Bride Test looks good, and we can never go wrong with Harry Potter, right? Hugs…RO

HP is a perfect read pretty much any day. 🙂
Ooh yes, any HP book would be great for a rainy day. As would Me Before You!
ShootingStarsMag recently posted…Arctic Sun + Heated Rivalry
Right? Those HP books always suck me in no matter how many times I re-read them.
I chose horror/thriller/dark books. Like right now, it’s raining and dark outside. I’m watching Haunting of Hill House while I blog/blog hop. I always enjoy dark stuff when it’s dark outside. Adds to the creep factor to me.
I’ve read a few of these books, Hunger Games and Harry Potter of course. Night Circus was okay, and I can’t wait to read Daisy Jones and the Six.

Oh yeah, that would definitely add to the atmosphere!
I love your list. The Bride Test is perfect and you can never ever go wrong with Potter!
Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer recently posted…Triple Jeopardy by Anne Perry
Right? Those Potter books never get old.
This post just reminds me of how much more rain we desperately need in Australia. I love cold, cosy weekends curled up with a great read. I love to read about strong girls changing the world and landscape in which we live, feel great romances and people travelling through warm countries and cool water. I’m very much a mood reader so I’ll read anything as well. The Night Circus is one that was only just recommended to me again last night and need to pluck it off my shelves.

If you read The Night Circus, I hope you enjoy it!
Harry Potter and The Hunger Games are perfect for any day. I still haven’t read a Taylor Jenkins Reid book. I’ll get to them someday.
Aj @ Read All The Things! recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday: Rainy Day Reads
I really want to read more of TJR’s books. I’ve read three so far and loved them all.
I can’t wait for my hold for The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo to become available at my local library, I’ve heard so many good things! And Harry Potter is such a good rainy day choice!
Kat recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday – Rainy Day Reads
Evelyn Hugo is so good. I love TJR’s books!
Oh, the Great Alone broke my heart. I do not think I’ll survive another her story…. Reading it you would be actually happy it is just raining outside and not snowing))
Her books always make me so emotional!
