Hi, hey, hello and happy Friday!!
Today I come to you with some recommendations of books that I think will be perfect to read on a rainy day.
This post is inspired by the thunderstorm from the other night that made me sad when I started thinking about my cat stuck out in a storm when he was abandoned as a kitten. The little demon has been living with us for 7 years so I don’t know why I chose then to get sad about. It was a weird night.
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E Schwab
I’m sure you’re sick to death of hearing about this book but I genuinely wish I’d read this while it was raining out, I think it would of added even more to an already very atmospheric read.
In case you haven’t heard about this one, its about a girl who made a deal with the devil to get out of an arranged marriage, in exchange she lives forever however is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets until she meets a seemingly normal boy at a bookshop.
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is a pretty slow moving book, it definitely focuses more on the characters themselves rather then an action packed plot, switching between Addie’s life through the centuries to her life in the present day of 2014. With the added paranormal elements as well I think it would make it even spookier and creepier.
The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
The Inheritance Games is overall a great book to read at any point this autumn, especially with a nice rainy background noise, but now that I’m here needing to explain this decision, I actually don’t know I think that.
This book follows a teenage girl who inherits the estate of a billionaire she’s never even met and over night she is thrust into this crazy rich world with an even crazier rich family. To get to the bottom of why she inherited what she did she teams up with the family’s grandsons who are keeping secretes of thier won.
Basically if you liked the 2019 movie Knives Out then you’ll like this YA version too.
Legendborn by Tracy Deonn
I only read this last month and it was incredibly good so I’m recommending it because I think you should read it too.
Legendborn book follows a girl called Bree who, after the death of her mother, enrols in a pre-college residential programme with her best friend. On their first night there Bree witnesses a magical/demonic attack and she is then swept up in this secrete society and even takes part in a competition to become part of their ranks.
I’ve had this TBR since before there was even a cover and I’m so happy it didn’t disappoint. The reason it’s on this specific list though is because of the fantasy elements which actually reimagines King Arthur legends which I originally wasn’t expecting. So yeah, those fantasy elements mixed with the classic YA feelings you get when reading could make this a really great rainy day read.
And there we have three books for a rainy day. When I’m not crying about my arsehole of a cat I really enjoy raining through a thunderstorm and I’m kind of annoyed that I’ve had to study or sleep instead of doing that this past week.
If you have any rainy day recommendations let me know! Thanks so much for reading and stay safe!!
