Aaaah the rainy days when the mood seems to switch to melancholic, when you don’t want to go outside and when you wish you could just cuddle up with a cup of hot tea and a good book. Something that will keep you warm inside, something that will lift up your mood, or maybe something that will feed your inner romantic? Let’s see if I can propose you some reads for these days. It’s actually a fitting topic for today, it looks like it’s going to rain soon :).
Jam by Yahtzee Croshaw – here’s a story I haven’t talked about… at all? I loved this book! The idea was so ridiculous that I simply had to read it. After all, how often so you see a book where the world is covered with man-eating JAM! Plus the only people who seemed to survive the first wave are the slackers and workaholics. See the potential here? Go read it 😀 It’s worth it!
This book is simply adorable, makes you feel all work inside, all tingly. All the characters are fantastic and loveable, the story shows you not only what happens to the main characters, but also opens up possibilities for other tales.
The Lord of the Rings – when you’re in need of a long story about an epic journey this one is always something you should have in mind. Yes, it’s long, but the world creation, the characters, the story are worth reading. This book will pull you in and won’t let go until you’re finished.
From my recent cozy mystery reads, I’d like to recommend you Murder, Mystery & Dating Mayhem by D.E. Haggerty. It’s my second read in this series, but the first actual part – I’ve started with the third one because it was about to came out, review here. As for review for Murder, Mystery… it will come soon, for now, you need to trust me that these stories are addictive and funny with a bit of mystery.
And to have some laugh from mythology you can check out Loki: Nine Naughty Tales of the Trickster by Mike Vasich. A set of companion stories to Loki – an interesting retelling of how the Ragnarok came to be :). I love these books, especially the Trickster tales, but the main book is worth reading to have a complete view on Loki’s character.
What are your favorite rainy day reads? Do you have any? Or maybe you prefer to sleep through it?
