It’s Thursday again, and honestly, I am glad of that. This week has been crazy busy for me and I am ready for a rest. Today I am sharing The Spring Book Tag, which I saw over on Sara Letourneau’s blog whilst looking for a lovely spring tag to share.
1. What’s on your Spring TBR list?
Left on my TBR for this month are The Middler by Kirsty Applebaum, The Bone Shard Daughter by Andrea Stewart, The Loop by Ben Oliver, and The Girl in Red by Christina Henry. I’m setting myself an ambitious TBR for next month for Viperthon, including Who I Was With Her by Nita Tyndall and Jungledrop by Abi Elphinstone which are two I am particularly looking forward to.
2. If someone asked you for a spring release recommendation, what would it be?
Vulture by Bex Hogan. It’s the final book in the Isles of Storm and Sorrow trilogy. I finished it this week and it broke me. You should all experience that. Closely followed by Strangeworlds: The Edge of the Ocean by L.D. Lapinski, which I cannot wait to get my hands on.
3. Which two books coming out before summer are you eagerly awaiting?
Aside from the two mentioned in the last question, Witches Steeped in Gold by Ciannon Smart, which is one of my most hyped books for this year, and Bookishly Ever After by Lucy Powrie.
4. Which character would make a great Easter bunny?
I love how absolutely bonkers this question is. I feel like Leonard the cat / alien from My Life as a Cat by Carlie Sorosiak would make a great Easter Bunny. I haven’t finished reading this, but I think that he would want to experience Earth in another way, and be so central to a human celebration.
5. What book makes you think of spring?
I don’t think I have a book that makes me think of spring. I’m not a seasonal reader. This is the time of year that I enjoy to take a book outdoors to read a little when I can, but I don’t much mind what book that is.
6. Name a cover with flowers on it.
I have the special edition of Rainbow Rowell’s Wayward Son with the flowery sprayed edges. Does that count? Because those edges are truly stunning!
7. Which two characters would you go on an Easter egg hunt with?
Charlie and Tori Spring from the Heartstopper series by Alice Oseman. I just adore them and I think, after the events of This Winter, having some fun together would be good for them.
8. What is your favorite spring bookish activity?
Normally I would say book events, because there are always loads of great books being released around this time of year, but that’s a no go. Something else I really enjoy (as sad as it sounds) is sitting in bed with a cup of tea and and book, and the window wide open when it’s quite breezy outside. Or sitting with a book in a sunny patch of the garden.
9. Which book did you enjoy that has a spring-like cover?
Oh this was a tough one to answer. I’m going to say The Gilded Ones because the cover is the perfect shade of green that I associate with spring and there’s a gorgeous splash of yellow on there too. It’s the closest to an spring-like cover I’ve read in a long time.
10. Who is your favorite contemporary author?
Sara Barnard. I read a lot more fantasy than I do contemporary (because the real world sucks thank you very much), but Sara’s books are always a delight.
I’m not going to tag anyone to complete this, but let me know your answers if you do! What spring like book covers can you think of?
