Top Ten Tuesday – Rainy Day Reads

Hello and welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme originally created by The Broke and The Bookish, and is now hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl.

Today’s topic is: Rainy Day Reads (submitted by Shayna @ Clockwork Bibliotheca). I think this is a great topic, because it is April and the saying goes: April showers, bring May flowers. A lot of the books on this list are ones that I haven’t read, but think would be perfect to read on rainy days. Here are 5 books that I think are perfect rainy day reads.

*How to Bake a Perfect Life by Barbara O’Neal. This sounds like a cozy story about a grandmother and a granddaughter strengthening their bond. There’s is also baking going on, and any book that has to do with food is perfect for a rainy day as far as I’m concerned!

*The Restaurant Critic’s Wife by Elizabeth LaBan. I just finished this over the weekend and it was so cute and hilarious to read about Lila’s adventures as a mother of two and the wife of a restaurant critic. It’s perfect to read in a comfy chair with hot cocoa on a glorious rainy day.

*The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living by Louise Miller. Another baking filled book but this time set in the country. It sounds cute, so I’m guessing it’ll be a great book for a dreary and wet day.

*State of the Onion by Julie Hyzy. This is a cozy mystery about a chef who is vying for the very top position in the White House kitchen. Food and mystery, a win-win combination.

*From Where I Watch You by Shannon Grogan. This isn’t just about a baking competition, it also has a mystery thrown into it. And the cover is pretty, so I’m betting that it would be a wonderful rainy day read.

That’s it for this Tuesday! What books do you think are perfect for rainy days? Have you read any of these? Do you think they’re perfect for rainy days? Let’s chat in the comments below! (Be sure to link to your TTT’s so that I can check them out!)

Hello and welcome to WWW Wednesday! I hope you’re having a fantastic day! WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words.

The Three W’s are:

  • What do you think you’ll read next?

Let’s get started!

What I Just Finished:

All covers are from Goodreads unless stated otherwise

Last week, I finished Watching You and really enjoyed it! You can find my review here. I also finished Stalking Jack The Ripper over the weekend, and I also enjoyed it! My review will be up on Friday!

What I’m Currently Reading:

I borrowed Into The Water two days ago. I started it, but put it aside. So far, it’s okay, but I’m not really into it.

What I Plan to Read Next:

I totally forgot that I wanted to read The Restaurant Critic’s Wife, but that’s what I plan on getting to next! My library copy of I Found You has also come in, and since I really enjoyed Watching You, I’m excited to start this!

WWW Wednesday #15

Hello and welcome to WWW Wednesday! WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words.

The Three W’s are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

Let’s get started!

What I Just Finished:

All covers are from Goodreads unless stated otherwise

Last week, I finally finished Vicious (reviewhere) and I really liked it! It wasn’t a five star, but I would still highly recommend it!

Damaged was predictably sweet, while thrilling in some parts. I also really loved the legal aspect in it!

In The Woods was a huge disappointment. The story had great potential, and then the ending had to ruin the book for me. Review will probably be up on Friday!

What Am I Currently Reading:

MY LIBRARY HOLD HAS FINALLY COME THROUGH!!!! I’ve been waiting to read Watching You since December of last year! I’m glad I didn’t buy it yet, and that my patience is paying off. This is okay so far and I’m itching to find out what is truly going on in this secret filled book!

What Do I Plan on Reading Next:

I’m going to be reading Stalking Jack The Ripper as a group read and I’m excited because it’s historical mystery – two of my favorite genres! I’m also in need of something light and happy so I also want to read The Restaurant Critic’s Wife.
