T5W: Rainy Day Reads

Hey guys and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni and today I will be participating in Top 5 Wednesday. Lainey from gingerreadslainey on youtube just passed the torch of moderator to one of my favorite booktubers, Sam from Thoughtsontomes.

This week's topic is our top 5 rainy day reads. If you want to check out more about the group, visit our goodreads page!

For this, I'm going to be showing you some fun and fast paced books perfect for a day where you can't really get out. Here they are!

5.) Did I Mention I Love You? by Estelle Maskame
Did I Mention I Love You? (or DIMILY) for short, is the epitome of a quick read. It's super addicting and it'll make you need to pick up the next book ASAP. DIMILY is a young adult contemporary read, but it doesn't just touch on the romance. Check out my mini review here.

4.) Forbidden by Kimberely Griffiths Little
Forbidden is the opening novel of a historical fiction fantasy set in the Mesopotamian desert. The book is pure entertainment with a quick pace. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel, which is out now. If you want to know more of my thoughts on the book, visit my review!

3.) The Dead List by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Armentrout is a master at writing addicting reads perfect for a rainy day. The Dead List takes the cake though! This thriller novel can actually be found on the wattpad app for free. The novel does take a dark turn or few, but it was so much fun to read. I wrote a full review for this one as well, so feel free to read it here!

2.) Defy by Sara B. Larson
Defy is yet another opening novel to a trilogy. The book follows Alexa, a girl who crossdresses as a male in order to be part of the prince's guard. The story kicks off in the first fifty pages when Alexa is taken hostage along with the prince and her best friend.  While I didn't love the first book, the series as a whole is so good! If you want to know more about my thoughts on this book or the series as a whole, check out my spoiler free series review.

1.) The Pact by Karina Halle
Last but not least is (new?) adult romance. The novel chronicles the love story of Steph and Linden, two best friends who love each other but don't have the guts to tell each other their feelings. The plot is simple enough, but I couldn't get enough of the characters! A long, long time ago I did a review of this book. You've been warned. It was in my early days when I wasn't sure how to actually write a review. :D

So that was my T5W! What are some of your rainy day reads you would recommend? 

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!

Happy Reading!

  1. These are all books I have not read before! I got to admit that the covers are all beautiful and I would totally read them just based on them. Maybe I'll pick one of these up next time it rains. Thanks for sharing!

    1. It seems like we have very similar tastes in covers then! I'm not going to lie, there is a good portion of these books that I read due to their cover. Thanks for visiting Danica! :D I'll be sure to visit your T5W.

  2. I've he's The Dead List is a good one. I might have to try it out! :)

    1. It's such a fun read! I love it when authors just post stories just for the joy of writing on wattpad. :D
