9 Books I’m Planning To Read During The Spring Months

It’s spring! 🌸 I have a feeling it’ll feel like winter for a few more weeks, even though the calendar says it’s spring. This has been a long winter, and I’m looking forward to this new season of spring. I’m looking forward to the change in nature, warmer weather, Easter, and new book releases! Although I’m still at the tail end of My Winter 2023 Reading List, I’ve put together my new list for spring because there are lots of books I’m looking forward to.

Each season, I like to put together a list of books I’d like to read during those three months. My list is comprised of both books I’ve been meaning to read and new releases. Sometimes I’m able to get through all of the books on my list. Other times, I only get through most. Either way, I always find it helpful to have a reading list to guide me through the season. It’s my way of keeping things simple 📚.

In no specific order, these are the 9 books on my Spring 2023 reading list:

Between Us by Mhairi McFarlane

This is a story about a group of friends who go away together for a weekend at a country house. What begins as a weekend of celebrations, turns into a weekend of secrets and tensions. Surely, none of them will be the same after this weekend. I enjoy the author’s wit, humor, and writing style, so I can’t wait to read her latest novel.
