Rainy Day Reads

This is a perfect topic these days!
We have been washed out the last 3 weekends. Not just light rain shower, heavy, torrential rains. Perfect time to curl up with a book, blanket, and book!
We're expecting severe storms this week too. I tell you, it's great reading weather!

When it's is a dreary day. I love to read books that fit to that, if it makes sense. I love darker or more mysterious books. I like adventure and suspense. The mood of the day helps amplify the anticipation of the story.

by Lisa T. Bergren
Rainy days are amazing for this series in general! It's such a fun book, you don't want to put it down. Time travel, romance, adventure. It has so many things that make it hard to put down. 

 The Doctor's Lady 
by Jody Hedlund
This book starts off in winter. It's a long journey that takes you through a real life journey. It's hard pull yourself away.

 Chateau of Secrets
by Melanie Dobson
This is a time slip. The mystery of these books are fabulous. As the pieces start to come together, you get more hooked and don't want to leave your reading nest.

 The Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn
by Lori Benton
This is an adventure story that takes you through the wilderness. The elements, the unknown of who is following. The knowledge of who made you run. It's a fabulous story to curl up with a blanket.

 Dear Mr. Knightley
by Katherine Reay
This is such an emotional story. Gut punch really. The emotions are strong and it is one where on a rainy day, it makes it all the more poignant.

 The Promise
by Beth Wiseman
The intensity of this story will keep you planted in your reading nest.

 In the Shadow of Croft Towers
by Abigail Wilson
I love gothic stories! This is a perfect one. The weather is dreary, it fits a rainy day. The mystery pops and the rainy days brings you more into the story.

 Catching the Wind 
by Melanie Dobson
Another time slip. This story is a mystery with some intense historical elements.

The Curse of Misty Wayfair
by Jaime Jo Wright
Time slip again...I'm seeing a trend. :-) This story is one of the most perfect stories for reading on a rainy day. It is a little dark and full of mystery. The dreary day adds to the reading experience. 

What are your favorite rainy day reads?
Do you have a certain genre you like to read on a dreary, stay at home, kind of day?


  1. All of these books have such pretty covers.

    My TTT.

  2. Three cheers for 'Mr. Knightley'; to me this one, or any of Katherine's are ideal fits for rainy day reads. Also, Abigail's is another perfect fit. :)


Thanks for stopping by. Leave a word, leave a line, I would love to hear what you have to say.
