Top Ten Tuesday: Rainy Day Reads


Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week's topic is Rainy Day Reads (submitted by Shayna @ Clockwork Bibliotheca).  After each title I'm sharing the best type of rain for each title.  Here we go, in no particular order:


Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë - just misting


Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë - raging thunderstorm


Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle - raining cats and dogs


Twilight by Stephenie Meyer - overcast with a light rain


The Shining by Stephen King - fat raindrops to a freezing rain


The Fall of the House of Usher by Edgar Allan Poe - a dreary downpour


Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli - a light drizzle


The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins - rain pelting down along the windows


The Merciless by Danielle Vega - a thunderstorm with hail and a tornado


The Help by Kathryn Stockett - a sunshower

Have you read any of these books?  What books do you think are perfect for a rainy day?  As always thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!

  1. 1: I really like your fun add-on for this list (type of rain) and 2: I saw Jane Eyre on another list too. While I haven't read it, if the many film adaptations are an indication, this one seems an ideal rainy day read. :)

  2. Oh so many of these look like fantastic rainy day type reads! Can you believe I've never read Sherlock Holmes?

  3. Classics, I've seen quite a few on lists today. They would work perfect. I also really enjoyed Merciless!

  5. Great list! Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is such a good read for a rainy day, and so's Jane Eyre. :D

  8. I love the classic spin you put on this week's topic. There is something about rainy days that makes reading the classics super appealing (and I'm a huge Jane Eyre fan!)

  10. I like the way you assign the type of rain to each book. It rains a lot here so any book is really a good book for a rainy day. I'm off the board with unusual narrators this week. Check it out.

  11. I like how you listed the type of rain the book would be good with. I've read Jane Eyre before, but I don't think I've read any of the others yet.

  12. I love how you assigned each book a type of rain! I haven't read very many of these, so I'll have to read more of them to see how the 'rain' fits the book!

  13. I love that you paired your book with the level of precipitation. Fun!

  14. Thanks for doing my topic (and linking back to me)! I love that we both included Jane Eyre :)

  15. I liked your approach very much! But for me Jane Eyre is not a rainy read, I would be to depressed)))
