Top 5 Rainy Day Books

Recommendations Header

I’ve started to get involved with the ‘Top 5 Wednesday’ trend and here is the first! The first Wednesday in April is your top 5 rainy day books. I personally love a rainy day with nothing better to do than read. Something that captures your attention so you don’t want to leave the world you’re in! Here are my top 5 books for staying in and getting cosy when it’s rainy!

The Fault in our Stars by John Green
This always seems like the most clichéd option, however it’s a fast read, funny and has interesting characters. Yes the topic is a little hard to digest sometimes, however John Green really does write well and puts such a positive spin on this teenage drama story. It’s one of my favourite rainy day books.

Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher
I’ll always stand by this novel being the best novel for a rainy day. It’s a perfect all round story of love and adventure for anyone who likes a well written chick-lit novel!

Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone by J.K. Rowling
I will always stand by the first Harry Potter novel being the best for a rainy day read. Most people see them as interchangeable, but seeing Harry venture in to the new world of witches and wizards is perfect for getting away from the rainy weather and in to something much more magical.


Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
This novel was one of my favourites growing up, as it was most children’s. It’s sheer bliss imaging the factory and everything within it. Once again it’s the perfect distraction from the rain outside and takes you to somewhere else entirely.

The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins
When its rainy outside and a little bit eerie there is nothing better than reading a really good thriller novel. The Girl on the Train is one of my favourite psychological thriller novels because it’s so easy to read with some great twists involved!


Hopefully I’ll manage to keep up with these top 5 Wednesday’s, or at least get a few out a month! Keep your eyes out for next weeks post!
