Mabuhay, friends! 

As I write this from my couch by the window, it is raining outside. The pitter patter of raindrops on my windowsill is very comforting. This is the kind of weather that is perfect for writing, or for any kind of activity that brings one comfort. Usually on days like these, I find crime books to be perfect for rainy days. Since it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, I branched out with my recommendation list. So, here are five books to read on rainy days!

The Wych Elm by Tana French is hight up on the list because of how eerie and chilling the story had been written. This book centres on the mystery of how a skeleton had gotten into a tree in the family’s backyard and how the main character could be connected to it. A crime novel that focuses much on memory and one’s perception of themselves and others.

Snow by Gina Inverarity is a post-cataclysm fantasy inspired by the fairytale of Snow White. I was very impressed by the beautiful writing and how the author created a story that was very unique and could stand apart from its origins. Readers who enjoy fairytale retellings shouldn’t miss out on this book!

The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton is certainly for those who enjoy getting creeped out. In this story, the main character is, for lack of a better word, haunted by a miniaturist whose wooden carvings predict the future of the characters’ lives. Yet no one knows or can find this miniaturist. It’s a very fascinating story!

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte is not as widely praised as Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights but I believe this book certainly deserves more attention. The Tenant is a story of a woman who had escaped an abusive marriage and lives her life as a painter. This isn’t a romance classic and if you enjoyed Jane Eyre’s character, I highly recommend picking this up.

Heart of Mist by Helen Scheuerer is book one of The Oremere Chronicles. A toxic mist is spreading throughout the lands and the lives of magic users are under threat. I adore this fantasy trilogy for how it tackles addiction in young adults, family grief, and political power.
