Wednesday’s Word = RAIN #WednesdaysWord #booklovers

Most readers will acknowledge that some words reappear time and time again in titles. Often these words are associated with a particular genre. Case in point: “The girl on the train” and “Gone girl” spawned countless thriller titles with the word ‘girl’ in the title.

My pick for Wednesday’s Word this week has an April theme. “April showers bring May flowers”. In this post I’ve selected just twenty-one novels with the word ‘rain‘ in the title as a way of sharing my book love.

These titles cover a broad range of  genres – with literary fiction, mystery, historical fiction, thriller to name but a few.

Just click on the cover to read the book’s synopsis from Goodreads.

You might just find your next favorite book!Are you tempted by any of these covers?

Which cover MOST APPEALS to YOU?
Have you read one of these titles and absolutely LOVED it?

    The Art of Racing in the Rain is the only one I have read, but of course I have seen the movie, Rain Man. There are definitely some of these that intrigue me, you know I am a cover lover. I will be checking them out on Goodreads to see if there are any I am going to add and if the library has them. Another great post, especially to entice me to add more books to my TBR shelf.

    Lynne, I am sure you remember when we discovered “A Chill Rain in January” and how it opened us up to reading everything written by L. R. Wright……so many wonderful reads and how the author died way too soon. Also, “The Art of Racing in the Rain” by Garth Stein is one of my all time favorite reads (made it one of my Staff Picks). It is one of the few books made into a movie where the story is not changed! What a great post Lynne…..thank you! Made my day😀

  4. ‘The Sound of Rain’ has a great cover, although I think full marks go to ‘Rain Girl’ – rain, girl, sequins!

    I like ‘Fifty words for rain’, ‘History of the rain’ and, of course, anything written by Gregg Olsen usually finds its way to my tbr. I absolutely adore these posts, Lynne! Coming up with a great title is a special kind of art…something that can be appreciated only after you’ve finished the book.
