The Count of Monte Cristo, Alexandre Dumas
Perfect for a Rainy Day Because: Aren’t all swashbuckling tales avec huge bodies of water rainy day-type reads?
Plot: Edmund Dantes, an innocent man wrongfully imprisoned by peeps he thought he could trust, extracts the most elaborate revenge scheme ever, and totally carries it out. This is one revenge tale you might not finish in one afternoon, but it won’t take long, and you’ll feel invigorated after finishing it. It’s quite awesome!
