Hello guys !
So today is Wednesday, this means that it is time for me to do another T5W. It is a weekly feature created By Lainey @ Gingerreadslainey with a different theme each week. It is hosted now by Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes. For more information, you can check the Goodreads group.
This week’s theme is: RAINY DAY READS
P.s: The covers are direct links to the GoodReads pages.
In general, on days when the sky is pouring I like to read contemporary. Yep. That’s me. And not whatever contemporary I can get my hands on, mind you. It has to be on one of the extremes of the emotional scale. The book has to either leave me with warm fuzzy feelings inside or leave me heartbroken, snorting and ugly crying ’til the late hours of the night (Okay, I’m not a big crier, so I might be exaggerating, but you get the point). Here are some of the books that fit one of the descriptions above :
5 – THE STORYTELLER – ANTONIA MICHAELIS
Oh man ! This book is so dark and twisted but it is SO good. It is mysterious, creepy and mostly tragic. I read it in the beginning of this years and I remember being so sad and depressed at the end of it. Perfect for those rainy days when your mood matches the sky.
4- SEVEN DAYS FOR AN ETERNITY – MARK LEVY
This is a “Love conquers all” type thing. I read it in the perfect setting actually. It was a gloomy winter afternoon, I was buried in my bed under a ridiculous amount of blankets. And I liked it for what it was. A quick, easy, fun read.
3- ME BEFORE YOU – JOJO MOYES
Need I explaining this one? Everyone knows it, everyone loves it. (almost? I yet have to read a negative review) It is a heartwarming/heartbreaking read. Yes, it does both. No, it doesn’t make the hard parts bearable. Yes, you are still going to cry. No, it’s not going to go easy on you. If you’ve been following me for more than 2 weeks then you already know my thoughts on it, if not here they are.
2- FANGIRL – RAINBOW ROWELL
AAAAGH ! I can’t keep myself from fangirling everytime I mention this book (More fangirling over here). It is just so frigging cute. It holds a really special spot in my heart and I don’t have a reason for it, it just does. Or do I ? Can Levi be enough of a reason ? Yes? Well I say that he can because I can do whatever I want. *Sticking my tongue out like a mature person*
1- THE BOOK THIEF – MARKUS ZUSAK
You were warned my friends ! I told you many many times that I am obsessed with this book and that it wasn’t the last time you were going to hear about it from me. If you haven’t read it, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ? Just go pick it up right now, for heaven’s sake or I’ll hunt you down. I will find you. And I will make you sit and read it.
That’s it until next time.
What are some books that you love to read on rainy days ?
Hope you enjoyed, write to you soon.
