What books do you like to read in spring?
I’m not much of a seasonal reader, but the spring months of March to May are when I tackle some of the heaviest titles on my TBR. I usually reserve the months leading up to May for making some inroads into my previous year’s TBR, along with any books I’ve been wanting to reread for a while.
What makes you feel the change in the seasons? Is it the cover, or the content?
Generally speaking, I feel like as the year changes into spring, there are more light hearted novels released and the covers also do tend to be brighter and more colorful.
Do you read certain genres in spring, or books set during the season?
I find myself reading more fantasy novels at this time of year, as well as a good number of mysteries or thrillers.
What books are on your spring 2023 tbr?
On the classics front, A Tale of Two Cities, The Three Musketeers and Sense and Sensibility are at the top of my list, especially as I have set myself a reading challenge this year to read one classic each month. In terms of backlist titles, a few I’m hoping to read are: Heart of the Sun Warrior by Sue Lynn Tan, Foul Lady Fortune by Chloe Gong, The Dragon’s Promise by Elizabeth Lim and Nona the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir. Finally, for new releases, I’m most excited to pick up Silver in the Bone by Alexandra Bracken, Lords of Uncreation by Adrian Tchaikovsky, Atalanta by Jennifer Saint, Stars and Smoke by Marie Lu and The King’s Pleasure by Alison Weir.

i dont really do seasonal reading either and mostly just 1) read books that ive borrowed from the library atm or 2) basically read anything that sounds even the littlest bit interesting at the moment SO. but omg a classic a month SOUNDS LIKE AN AMAZING IDEA!!! I HOPE ITS GOING GREAT SO FAR!!!!
I’m terrible at finding spring-appropriate books. Even the books that are primarily set in spring or summer, I somehow find a way to read them in autumn (like The Nature of Witches, which is an annual October read haha). I gotta find a way to seasonally read this spring and summer, to combat my dislike of the seasons!
We’re typically seasonal reasons in the summer, fall and the holiday season. In spring we pretty much read any genre.
