Hi guys! It’s Wednesday once again and that means it’s time for Top 5 Wednesday, created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to know more about Top 5 Wednesday you can go to the Goodreads page by clicking here. This week’s theme is Rainy Day ReadsFor me a Rainy Day Read is a short (ish) stand alone with a sad or melancholy feel that I can just curl up with and be pulled into the world for the day.

In no particular order-

Brooklyn by Colm Toibin

Brooklyn is a real Irish immagration story, I found Brooklyn so relatable, relatable to anyone who has ever been home sick, ever been in love or dreamed of a better life.

      1. LOL! I remember reading something recently about the only reason the author put a lamppost in the story is because someone else said there could never be a proper fantasy story with a lamppost in it, or something like that.

  1. For We Were Liars, what do you mean in your review about “magic” on the island and secrets? Is it fantasy or drama/suspense? I don’t like reading anything that isn’t at least plausible in real life, haha.

    1. I would say there is sense of not knowing what is real and what not but it all revealed in the end. (I would hate to spoil it for you! I would say it a YA family drama with a touch magical realism. 🙂
