Top 5 Wednesday – Rainy Day Reads

imgresAaaah 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 :).


JamJam 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!


EnchantedEnchanted – if you’re in need of a cute and cuddly romance this book is perfect. And, oh look, I even got a review for you here :).

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.


Lord of the ringsThe 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.


Murder, Mystery & Dating MayhemFrom 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.


Loki Nine Naughty Tales of the TricksterAnd 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?

  1. Omg, Jam sounds amazing. Lately I’m really into the more absurdist stuff. I actually just reviewed this book called John Dies @ The End, which is another crazy end of the world story. It does a really great job of balancing the absurd, disturbing and sincere aspects of itself. I think that writers who can get away with being completely ridiculous are so clever.

    On a rainy day where I can get away with nesting (so rare these days!) I love to reread Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. I just love it.

    1. Harry Potter is a great story. And the illustrated edition is fantastic.

      As for the weird stories – have you read day of the Tryffids? It’s about killer plants. Quite good, but I guess more apocalyptic than ridiculous.
