I think a good rainy day read is something you can get cozy with. It’s atmospheric, it’s thoughtful, it’s maybe a bit somber. These five books are all sweet, lovable, and sad. Except for the last one. The last one is simply sweet and lovable in case you’re not up for sad.
Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Meeghan Reads
