I Love Spring Book Tag
A lovely reminder of how beautiful change can truly be.
How is Spring where you live?
Australian weather in general is incredibly temperamental. For example, it’s been 30 degrees C (86F) and cloudy this whole weekend, where last week it was about 18C and sunny and this coming week will also be 18C, but with the addition of bucketing rain. Come December, we’ll have raging bush fires across one state and floods in the next state. #Straya
Most anticipated book release this spring?
I would have definitely said Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, but they’ve announced that they’ll be pushing the release date to March next year 😦 Illuminae is one of my favourite books of all time and I think Amie and Jay are doing a mighty fine job with this series!
My second to this is coming out in less than two weeks in Australia and is Warcross by the queen of badassery, Marie Lu. I’ve been waiting SO long for another video game centred novel since I didn’t enjoy Ready Player One all that much. If you know of any good game novels, please please let me know down in the comments!
Tell us about a book cover that makes you think of spring
LOL oddly the first thing that came to mind were the covers for the Southern Reach Trilogy by Jeff Vandermeer.
The imagery totally works, but if you’ve read any of the books you’d know why this answer doesn’t really fit the question hahaha
Where are you going to read this spring?
THE BEACH! YES! I’m so excited! The last 6 months have left me so pale. And you pretty much can’t get any more relaxed than at the beach, right?
Find a cover with the sun on it
Easy done. The paperback edition of I’ll Give you the Sun by Jandy Nelson. Really really loved this book. Very cute and quite fitting for spring actually.
What are your favourite spring reads?
I actually just finished this book this morning and it’s a strong contender for one of my favourite books of the year! I feel like spring is all about excitement, adventure and flirty-ness, and what better book to encapsulate that than The Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee.
My second nomination for this question will be History is all you Left me by Adam Silvera. While this one is a little bit more on the depressing side, I think its a great representative of change and new life, just like flowers in the spring.
Find a book with many different colours on it
I’m going to cheat and put down Warcross down for this question as well because it’s damn fitting.
I wasn’t tagged, I just wanted to do this tag hehe. Tagging whoever out there wants to do it too!
Would love to hear about your favourite Spring reads, and if you’re in the northern hemisphere, I’d love to hear about your Autumn reads! Drop me a comment down below, and let’s have a chat!
