Top Five Wednesday – Rainy Day Reads


It’s that time again…Top 5 Wednesday! This group, created by Lainey, is open to anyone so give it a try!

This week’s topic: Rainy Day Reads!

When I think of books to read on a rainy day, I think of comfort books – books I know I’ll love. Here are my Top 5:


1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee: I’ve loved this book for so long that I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve read it. It’s like my comfort blanket.

everyone having fun

2. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling: This book – and Mindy – crack me up. And if it’s rainy and gloomy out, this will cheer me up!


3. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling: A series I never get sick of!


4. Daphne du Maurier books – While it’s nice to have books that are funny or comforting, rainy days also beg for a good spooky story! I really like Daphne du Maurier books because they tend to have intrigue and mystery. Rebecca, The Birds, and Jamaica Inn are all good places to start.

best short stories

5. Short Stories – I’m leaving this a little vague because there are a ton of short story compilations out there. I recommend starting with a compilation of the classics – The Lottery by Shirley Jackson, A Good Man is Hard to Find by Flannery O’Connor, etc. and enjoy!
