Top 5 Wednesday is a Goodreads Group that posts a list every month of “top 5” prompts that members can post or blog about every Wednesday. You can find their information here. This week’s topic is “Rainy Day Reads“. I have interpreted this prompt a bit differently, and decided to take it literally. To be honest, I read whether the weather is cold, or whether the weather is hot. I weather the weather whatever the weather, whether I like it or not. Heheh. Anyway, what I am trying to say is, I don’t really know what constitutes a “book I would read on a rainy day” since I read books on any kind of day (whatever the weather), so I interpreted the prompt as “books that feature weather” (specifically rain). So, without further ado:
Top 5 Rainy Day Reads
#1 Kiss the Rain by Megan Derr
This is one of my all time favorite books by Megan Derr. It is about a grumpy mage who has been unfairly stripped of his powers and a cocky soldier working together to figure out how to stop the rain that has flooded the town where the mage lives. I don’t think I have read another book that had so much rain in it.
#2 Truth in the Dark by Amy Lane
This is one of my favorite M/M romances, and one of the great things about it, is that the storms in the story are relevant to both character development and plot.
#3 A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle
I mean, the book starts with, “It was a dark and stormy night.”
#4 Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
I actually really hate this book, and in fact I think I DNFed it. But hoo boy is there weather.
#5 The Perfect Storm by Sebastian Junger
This is my Dad’s favorite book. Sad to say, it is not my cup of tea, and I only read parts of it. Storms at sea are intense. I dunno how our ancestors managed to sail around the world in wooden ships with no engines.
That’s it for my list of “rainy day” reads.
