Hello Lovelies! Today’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is Rainy Day Reads. This topic can be taken a number of different ways, but to me, it meant dark reads. The books on this list are ones that have a grim/gloomy vibe, made me cry, or just had some dark themes in them.
I loved every single one of the books on this list so this is also a recommendation post as well. If you’re like me and love books that tug on your heart and don’t always stay on the safe side, these are probably for you!
This book just had a really dark and gloomy vibe for me. The setting was a main contributing factor to that, but the whole book just reinforced the idea.
This book is literally about a group of triplets trying to kill each other for a throne. Need I say more? How much darker can you get?
Believe it or not, this is NOT a horror novel. Though, the title leads you to believe so. There are actually a lot of funny scenes in it. But the majority of the book is dark. The themes in it, the characters, and the plot in general are all grim.
This series!! It is good. It is SOOO good. It is about a girl that goes to Dublin to find her sister’s murderer and ends up encountering some supernaturals during her search. It has a lot of dark themes and the setting only contributes to that.
This is a dark RH retelling of Alice in Wonderland. This book has a lot of dark themes and I guarantee you it isn’t the Wonderland you think you know.
