Sweater weather makes us want to sip coffee and grab a good read, all while lying to our warm sheets. If you ever find yourself stuck in the same suspension (as class suspensions are more often this season), go ahead and check out our rainy day bets!
2018 Rain Day Reads Best Sellers
1. Turtles All The Way Down
The wait is over! #1 bestselling author John Green returns with his first new novel since The Fault in Our Stars. Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her best and most fearless friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis. Aza is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts. In his long-awaited return, John Green, the acclaimed, award-winning author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars, shares Aza’s story with shattering, unflinching clarity in this brilliant novel of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship.

Determined to win her back, he tries to suppress his darkest desires and his need for complete control and to love Ana on her own terms.
