Happy Top 5 Wednesday!  T5W is a weekly meme with a new theme each week.  Check out the Top 5 Wednesdays Goodreads Group for more information and to see the upcoming topics.

This week’s theme is top 5 rainy day reads.  I don’t know about you, but when its rainy outside,  I like to stay inside and read gothic style novels.  There is just something about dark and gloomy days that gets me in the mood to read something tragic…

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte is the Mac Daddy of all gothic novels.  It is so passionate and tragicily intense.  This book is the source of the infamous quote…

“He’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”

This is probably my favorite love quote that has ever been and ever will be written.  This book is definitely not for everyone, but if you enjoy the classics and don’t mind having your soul crushed, give it a try.

Ahhh The Thirteenth Tale!  Do you have a messed up family?  Read this book and it will make you feel better about your life.  You’re welcome.

I love John Steinbeck.  He is bloody brilliant.  East of Eden is a re-telling of the Cain and Abel story from the bible.  This book is perfection.  I first read it in high school and even then I knew I was reading something great.

If you have never read anything by Kate Morton, you are truly missing out.  She is a captivating storyteller.  The Forgotten Garden was my first Kate Morton book.  It is SO good.  Stop everything and pick up this book, or any other KM book for that matter!

I saved the best for last.  Jane Eyre will always have a special place in my heart.  This is one of my favorite classics of all times!

  1. Ou I was just thinking about how I needed to read Wuthering Heights again. It’s been years. Gothic is definitely something I would feel like reading on a rainy day as well. Although, I also feel like it’s just what I am in the mood for. Rainy days are best for reading!
