It is the first week of Spring, and I am so excited! I absolutely love this time of year. Snow is melting (even though Switzerland barely gets snow apparently), flowers and trees are blooming, and the temperature rises. The winter is behind us, and the day is getting longer! All I want to do is be outside enjoying this beautiful weather. With this excitement, I thought it was only fitting to create a list of the books I want to read to keep me in my happy spring mood. Here is the list I came up with:
The Spanish Love Deception By: Elena Armas
Armas has an absolutely beautiful bookstagram page that features all the books she has read and loved. She mostly reads romance novels and is a self-proclaimed hopeless romantic. Some books she has recommended have become my absolute favourites. Therefore, when she completed her first romance novel in early 2021, I knew I had to get my hands on it. The reviews on this book have been great; I can’t wait to get started!
Dominicana By: Angie Cruz
This book is set in multiple seasons; it follows a woman from the Dominican who moves to New York City. However, much of the book’s beginning is set in the Dominican Republic’s countryside (which satisfies my need for a warm setting). The main character has always dreamed of a better life in America, and when the opportunity arises, it’s not exactly as she pictured it. This is a more serious book than the rest on this list, but I am really intrigued by the storyline. As well, in 2020, this book was shortlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction and has received many other numerous awards. The reviews for this book are incredible.
Float Plan By: Trish Doller
This book is set in the summertime on a sailboat, so I am already hooked! The plot centers around a woman who has just experienced deep grief and is now supposed to be going on a previously booked sailing trip; realizing she can’t make the trip alone, she hires a professional sailer to come on the trip with her. This book is exactly the kind of book that will excite me for the summer months ahead.
Matchmaking for Beginners By: Maddie Dawson
This book was written a few years ago and was (and is) very popular. It has been on my TBR list for quite a while, so I thought it was time to take it off the shelf and finally give it a read.
