rainy day reads

For some reason a stormy day complete with thunder, lightning & the biggest best raindrops makes me immediately think of curling up on the couch with some hot cocoa & a lovely book. Heaven right?

Well I am here today to let you in on a couple secrets for some classics that may just catch your attention. It's time to find your nearest library, book or kindle store, or Itunes to get these absolutely nothing but wonderful books.

& without any further adieu, here are some perfectly pleasant rainy day reads :)

1 The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
This is a "revenge thriller also set in France after Bonaparte: a masterpiece of adventure writing."

2 Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
This is a story with "obsessive emotional grip and haunting narrative." & don't forget that we have this edition just especially for your little kiddos available at Soe!

3 Little Women by Louisa M. Alcott
A "Victorian bestseller about a New England family of girls" & while you're at it you've GOT to rent this movie. To die for!

4 Huckleberry Finn by the one & only mister Mark Twain
"This picture of Mississippi life is profoundly moral and still incredibly influential." A classic must read. Period.

5 The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
A great "Jazz Age novel." I LOVE this book.. but the movie is also incredible so you might as well just rent that to :)

Let me know if you have anymore recommendations because I'd love to spice up my library at home with some new perfect rainy day reads!

&& Please enjoy this storm just as much as I am!! Haha.
