What’s your favorite thing to do on a rainy day? Personally, I love curling up on the couch with a good book in hand and watching the hours go by with every page I turn. Here is my list of my favorite rainy day reads.

1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
This will always be one of my favorite reads. Whenever I’m sad, I pick up this book and I instantly feel better. The development of friendship and sense of adventure will always appeal to readers. It’s great for a rainy day because it’s an easy read, and if it makes you happy, it’s a great investment for an otherwise lazy day.

2. 1984 
by George Orwell
Personally, this is one of my favorite novels, that’s why I always go to grab it on a rainy day. It’s a relatively easy read in my opinion, and it’s a small book, so it’s super easy to curl into it.

Perks of Being a Wallflower
3. The Perks of Being a Wallflower 
by Stephen Chbosky
This is another one of those books I gravitate toward when I need something comfortable to read. It’s pages are packed with meaning, and I learn something new every time I pick it up.

4. In True Blood by Truman Capote
I recently read this over the past summer, and I think it’s just a great creepy read for anybody. It’s a true tale about a murder in Kansas, and I know the eerie setting is just perfect for a rainy day read.

The Hobbit
5. The Hobbit 
by J.R.R. Tolkien
What better book to read on a rainy day than a tale of adventure?
