Oh my god it’s finally spring!!
This winter felt like it would never end. But it is finally the official start of spring. And my body is so ready.
Here are 5 books I feel are perfect for the season! They’re light, fun, sunny reads. ♥
1. The Deal (Off Campus #1) by Elle Kennedy
I (not) sorry about mentioning the series constantly. It’s really good! But the overall light-heartedness of this book and series feel perfect for spring. These books are such quick, engaging reads. I posted a full review here, if you want to hear my complete thoughts.
2. Maybe In Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I’ve talked about The Seven Husbands a lot, but I don’t mention TJR’s other work nearly enough. This story follows Hannah as she comes to a crossroads in her life – stay out with her ex, or go home. The story splits into alternating chapters, showing her life from both scenarios. It’s a commentary on true love and destiny. And like all of TJR’s books, I absolutely loved it.
3. My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan
This follows Rhodes scholar, Ella, on her one year studying at Oxford University. On her first day in Oxford, she meets a man she immediately hates. And she tells him that outright. But it turns out that same man her English Lit professor. Their connection is undeniable but they both know it’s not something they should act on. For very different reasons. This entire books is about love, hope, and self discovery. And it’s perfect for this budding time of year.
4. Blanca & Roja by Anna-Marie McLemore
This was my first dip into magical realism and I absolutely fell in love with this author and world. The whimsy of this book is a perfect match for the spring season. This story follows two sisters and, Blanca and Roja, who are trying to survive a family curse – two girls will be born, one will become a swan. This book is beautiful, magical, and atmospheric.
5. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
This is my favorite book of all time, so I recommend it all year round. But it feels like the perfect read for the warming months. It’s super fun and action packed. It takes place in a dystopian world where most people have retreated to a virtual reality. Wade is obsessed with finding the 3 easter eggs hidden in the VR. Everything changes when he is the first person to find the first egg.
