It’s time to share my reading list for spring. I’m still reading more than I was last year, but I can feel myself slipping back into a rut (does anyone else go through reading phasing like me?) and making up this list has me excited to lose myself in a book again.
Dreaming the Beatles by Rob Sheffield. I’ve loved everything that he’s written, so I imagine that his writing plus my favourite band of all time will make for a great read. From what I’ve read, this is more of a look at the influence of the Beatles on the generations that didn’t grow up when they emerged on the music scene, which is a fresh take that I’m looking forward to reading.
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. I read this classic for the first time when I was 12 (I can still remember sitting in my homeroom in grade 7 reading it), and loved it instantly (plus I’ve also watched the miniseries countless times). With the release of the new Anne series (currently on CBC and on Netflix next month), I thought now would be a good time to revisit Avonlea and the gang.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I discovered her novels last year, and have loved everything I’ve been able to read so far, so of course I’m looking forward to this one which is out in June.
Grace, Not Perfection by Emily Ley. I love the designer and blogger Emily Ley (her Instastories are the best), so when I found out that she published this book last fall, I knew I had to read it. I actually started it already and am loving it so far. I will be sure to share my full review once I finish it.
Goodnight from London by Jennifer Robson. I also discovered Robson last year and am looking forward to her latest, which came out last week. I’m so glad that I’ve realized recently how much I adore historical fiction.
Unfiltered by Lily Collins. I’m pretty sure I’ve only seen one of her movies, but I’ve always liked her style, and since reading part of her essay about her relationship with her dad (Phil Collins), I’ve been wanting to read this one. Plus, you know how much I love a good celeb memoir.
Have you read any of these books? What’s on your reading list this spring?
