TOP 5 WEDNESDAY: Rainy Day Reads

Top 5 Wednesday is a great feature created by GingerReadsLainey and hosted by ThoughtsonTomes. To find out more about Top 5 Wednesday and the upcoming topics, check out its Goodreads page. This week it’s all about rainy day reads, and to me a rainy day read should be a fun quick book so onto the five books that fit that criteria.

rebel of the sandsRebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
This book is fast-paced and action-packed. I read it all in one day which is the best kind of book when you’re stuck inside because it’s raining. Also it’s set in a desert so you can dream about being warm and dry while the rain hits your windows.

 

 

FullSizeRender (74)The Fade Out: Act One by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips
So this comic isn’t cute or really much of an easy read but it is like a noir murder mystery and those are always the best when you can hear rain on the windows as it makes the story more atmospheric.

 

 

love streetLove Street by Andrew Matthews
This was my favourite book as a pre-teen and because it’s so short and sweet you can read it in one sitting. It’s a fun contemporary where the main character dreams about a soap opera in her head to help her make sense of her real life – it’s fun and cute, what more could you want on a rainy day?

 

Night Owls ElenaSquareEyesNight Owls by Jenn Bennett
A contemporary story about a couple of very different people who are both artists and it is set in San Francisco. It’s a quick read with relatable characters and a believable romance.

 

 

princess leia comicPrincess Leia by Mark Waid, Terry Dodson, Rachel Dodson and Jordie Bellaire
Comics and graphic novels are the best thing to read when it’s raining and the Princess Leia comic is great when you’re mind wants to get away from the dreary day you’re in. it’s full of space adventures, awesome kickass female characters and supportive female friendships and it’s generally just great.

  1. I have to agree that comics/graphic novels are excellent rainy day reads- they also make me feel incredibly productive, because I can say, “Yeah, I finished like 8 books” instead of “I got through one novel” (which is also exciting but sounds slightly less impressive.

    1. Haha! Yes! When my TBR is getting even more daunting than normal I just marathon all the unread comics and graphic novels I have and I feel good about myself and my achievements 😛

    1. Give comics a go! I’ve read the Princess Leia and the Lando comic and loved them both so they might be a good place to start and I can’t wait to get my hands on the Poe Dameron one!
      I enjoyed Rebel of the Sands a lot more than I thought I would to be honest which was a great surprise 🙂
