10. The One Marrs The One – John Marrs. Addictive read, perfect for cuddling under a blanket.

9. 39725622 The Princess and the Fangirl – Ashley Poston. Light, quirky.

8. 38251237 Anything Kasie West is perfect for a rainy day.

7. frost blood Frostblood – Elly Blake. Sometimes rainy days bring out the fantasy lover in me.

6. goodbye The Last Time We Say Goodbye – Cynthia Hand. And sometimes rainy days make me want a book that will make me cry.

5. Rest of the Story Anything Sarah Dessen. Like Kasie West, she’s a great pick for a rainy day author.

4. Someone inside Sometimes rainy days make me feel like reading a thriller.

3. 9780373212378.indd Katie McGarry is another author who makes for a great rainy day read.

2. hunger games big The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins or any series for staying on the couch all day under a blanket.

  1. harry potter Because there is never a bad time to read Harry Potter.
