Top 5 Wednesday – Rainy Day Reads

Hey booknerds! It’s another Top 5 Wednesday post! This is hosted by Sam over on Thoughts on Tomes where you share you top 5 for the chosen topic for that week. You can check out each weeks topic over on Goodreads.

I’m a mood reader so I tend to decide what book to read depending on what I feel like picking up at the time but I think it would be nice to read a contemporary book while cosied up on the sofa or bed with a cup of tea and a blanket.

So these are some contemporaries that I loved and think would be great to read on a rainy day!

1 Geekerella by Ashley Poston – a geeky retelling of Cinderella which I adored!

2 Watch Us Rise by Renee Watson and Ellen Hagan – I absolutely loved this book which has themes of female empowerment and sisterhood!

3 Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell – the contemporary book that convinced me to read more in this genre!

4 The Princess and the Fangirl by Ashley Poston – I read this recently and adored it even more than Geekerella!

5 Moxie by Jennifer Matthieu – another female empowerment book that I loved!

As you can tell I tend to read contemporaries if they are about something that I am passionate about. So female empowerment themes or it being totally geeky!

Do you enjoy reading contemporaries? What type of books do you enjoy reading on a rainy day?
