T5W – Rainy Day Reads

T5W is a weekly book meme created by Lainey from Gingereadslainey and hosted by Sam from Thought On Tomes with a different bookish topic each week. You can check out the GoodReads group here. The group is currently on a summer hiatus, so I’ll be picking out topics I think are fun for these three months.

Topic: Rainy Day Reads – Short, fun reads for when I want to lift my mood and turn my brain off on a rainy day

The Last Sun by KD Edwards

36466732

This was a recent read that I just simply COULD NOT put down. The plot was thoroughly rompy, the worldbuilding was creative, and the characters, especially Rune and Brand, were extremely fun to read. It’s been a while since a book has grabbed me so much and I foresee many re-reads in the future.

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

6699003

This book was the book that formed my childhood. My childhood role model was Artemis Fowl and I read this book over and over and over again as a kid. Even now. I’ll pick up my battered paperback copy of book one because damn it’s a fun read.

Vicious by VE Schwab

13638125

I quite enjoy the ‘shitty people doing shitty things’ genre and I consider Vicious the epitome of that genre. The first time I read this, I was able to binge it on a three hour plane ride, with a massive grin on my face almost the entire time I read it. I’m sure my seatmates were a little concerned. Anyways, Vicious is a lovely lovely book with captivating main characters (even if they’re terrible people).

Prince’s Gambit by CS Pacat

23398894

Book 2 of the Captive Prince series. Specifically book 2. Not book 1, which is a whole lot of squick. Book 2 is the one where the two of them slowly start warming up to each other and have one of the best slow-burn conclusions. A fun, cute read with a dash of politics on the side.

Extras by Scott Westerfeld

493456

Another childhood nostalgia book. Extras is the weird, not quite fourth child of the Uglies ‘trilogy’, but also the one I loved the most as a kid, probably because the main character was Asian.
