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!)
