Perfect Books for Spring
Spring is finally on its way: sunnier days, flowers pushing their heads out the soil, opening green buds. With this sense of hope and new beginnings, it’s also a time to refresh your TBR list. That’s where we come to help! We’ve compiled a list of five books that we think are perfect for this new season.
A Room with a View - E M Forster
This book is a beloved classic, and focuses on middle-class, bored Lucy Honeychurch. On a trip to Italy she meets a man who represents everything she is missing from her restrained, socially conventional life - and is the polar opposite of her fiance. This novel is both a beautiful spring romance and a look at how people can offer us entirely new chances at life.
The Secret Garden - Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Secret Garden celebrates nature, childhood and the essential goodness of human beings: a beautiful and heartwarming story for spring. The power of nature to restore damaged souls is the key message of this charming classic, which has the power to enchant both children and adults alike.
How the One-Armed Sister Sweeps Her House - Cherie S.A. Jone
This debut novel is set in stunning Barbados, where four people are each desperate to escape their legacy of violence in a so-called "paradise."
Themes of love, marriage, grief and murder are all wrapped up in this heart-wrenching novel. It is also full of new beginnings and the importance of new choices, and the power it takes to leave an old life behind. Therefore it’s an inspirational choice to pick this spring if you find yourself living a life you wouldn’t choose for yourself.
Act Your Age, Eve Brown - Talia Hibbert
The third book in the Brown sisters trilogy, this novel is cute, funny, frothy romantic fun. Eve Brown is chaotic, bubbly and eager to please; her boss Jacob Wayne is serious, stressed and stern. Together, they really shouldn’t work, but somehow they do… This book is the perfect spring romance, guaranteed to make you smile!
The Language of Flowers - Vanessa Diffenbaugh
The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. For Victoria Jones, flowers are the only way she’s able to communicate and connect with people. A whimsical, sad novel which reflects on how much we’d risk for a second chance at happiness.
