My Spring Reading List

I tend to read books quite randomly but I do enjoy making seasonally appropriate picks. I'm not even sure all of these are particularly ideal for Spring but I have my reasons! 
Let me explain…


I know y'all like to look at the lovely covers (and judge them accordingly) as much as I do, so here's some close ups:


This one is for my book club at the end of the month. Sebastian Barry has been a finalist in the Man Booker prize twice now and it's about time that I picked this particular one up, which I'm hearing great things about. it's described as:

An intensely poignant story of two men and the makeshift family they create with a young Sioux girl, Winona, Days Without End is a fresh and haunting portrait of the most fateful years in American history and is a novel never to be forgotten


I actually have two books to read for that one particular book club and this is the second. Completely different to the first as this one is a real story of a neurosurgeon, diagnosed with lung cancer. He describes the experiences throughout the book of going from saving lives to accepting the imminent loss of his own and is supposed to be both a heartbreaking and eye-opening read. Those two are both coming on holiday with me!


This is by the same author as I Let You Go, which was a big deal amongst reading circles for all of last year. I read that one and was completely floored by the twist in the tale so I was intrigued to read her next book, I See You. I've started this one and it's a bit slow to get going but I'm hoping it picks up. This is another thriller. A woman discovers by accident that someone has put her photo into the classifieds section of a newspaper, she's a bit freaked out but puts it out of her mind. That is until other women whose photos are featured next to hers begin to be attacked. 


I've had this on my tbr (to be read) shelf for a while now and for some reason I've decided to pick it up and start it now. I feel like Drew is a Spring sort of person! Basically it's her memoirs to date. 


This is an advanced reader copy of The Witchfinder's Sister, hence why the cover looks like that- the one in store looks way fancier. This has just been released this month and I'm already completely hooked- I'm fascinated by the witch trials in Salem (especially after visiting there the year before last) and this book is focused on the witch hunt of 1640 in England. I love historical fiction and this one is a thriller to boot so you can be sure I'll be reviewing this!


Paper Girls, Volume 2! I only read the first one last month and quickly became obsessed. This is set in 1988, on Halloween night. Four teenage girls who deliver newspapers in their neighbourhoods (hence, paper girls) end up becoming a force to be reckoned with when, seemingly, the apocalypse begins. I can't wait to get stuck into this and see what happens next! 

I also have some great psychological thrillers on my kindle that I'm absolutely ploughing through! I have my reading mojo back at last!

Have you any books put aside in a special Spring pile?!
Have you read any of these?
To the comments!

  1. I like the look of many of those and am in need of some new books. I did read 'I see you' and loved it so I am doing it all backwards and am just about to start 'I let you go'
