Today, I got stuck in one of the worst 10 minute rain storms I think I’ve ever gotten stuck in (there’s been a lot, trust me!) and all I wanted to do was to go home and curl up with a good book in front of the fire place, which inspired this post.
So, if you’ve ever had the unfortunate luck of getting caught in a rainstorm outside, or even stuck inside because it’s too miserable to go out, it’s time to pick up a good book and get comfy. Don’t know what book to pick? Here’s some recommendations for some rainy day moods!
You know that time during Winter/early Spring when a storm seems to come out of no where and it seems to shift your entire mood. For myself, I always feel rather unmotivated to do anything but watch Netflix but now it’s time to be productive and crush those reading goals!
These are all quick and fun reads that are great if you don’t have much planned for your day or don’t know what to do. Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda is one of the cutest, most adorable contemporaries I’ve read in a long time, Six of Crows is action packed and has a fantastic set of characters, and Shatter Me is a book that you can fly through.
If you’re the unlucky one like myself and find yourself stuck outside in the storm then arrive home soaking wet, here are some adorkable books that will hopefully cheer you up!
Fangirl is such a cute contemporary novel and nearly every bookworm can relate with Cath, the main character who might love fictional characters just as much as we do, The One Thing is one of the best books I read last year and will make your heart swell like crazy, and The Lightning Thief is a good to mood booster because it’s hilarious and still kicks butt.
Rainy day? Who cares! If rainy days don’t bother you and you’re able to strut out the front door without a moment of hesitation, I’m really jealous. If you want to just go with whatever weather the world throws at you, here are some books to conquer while you conquer that rainy day.
While you’re out and about on your day, you might as well conquer the Harry Potter series because it can always be reread, Daughter of Smoke and Bone is crazy mysterious and pulls you into the world, and Eon is filled with dragons, gender masquerading, and intrigue so what more could you want?
I hope with several recommendations you can survive those rainy days, especially with Spring (aka season of rain) coming up so quickly! Happy reading everyone!
