Literally anything by Emma Mills
Emma Mills’ books–First and Then, Foolish Hearts, This Adventure Ends, and Famous in a Small Town–are my go-to books every time I feel shitty. They are rays of sunshine in book format. I love them so much.
 Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Honestly, this is my favourite anything read. I’ll read this book whenever, rainy day or not. But I feel like a rainy day would still be great background to read this.
 No Matter the Wreckage by Sarah Kay
This is a beautiful little book of poetry that is brilliantly written by Sarah Kay. I highly recommend listening to the audiobook of this, which is performed by Kay herself. Kay’s amazing performance plus soothing voice make this the perfect read for a rainy day. Plus, the audiobook is only 2 hours long!!
 The Butcher’s Hook by Janet Ellis
Nothing like an immersive, dark historical fiction to read on a rainy day. This is an excellent novel with such an engaging, twisted narrator.
 The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Berry
Another historical fiction read that is so good but so underrated. I feel like more people need to read this book!!!!! Like The Butcher’s Hook, it’s immersive, well-written, and perfect for a rainy day.
