Books you should be reading this spring


The flowers are (kind of) blooming, and it’s finally nice enough to take a book outside to read during your lunch break. Unless you live in the Midwest, then the weather isn’t quite there yet, but that shouldn’t stop you from reading a new book! Every season, I add a million books to my Goodreads, knowing I’ll probably only read a couple of those within the season’s time. Here are my top four books I am looking forward to reading and currently reading! I’m trying to be good and not read 18 books at one time, which I do more than I should. But we’ll learn that lesson the hard way as we go when I choose reading over sleep.

Dating Games by T.K. Leigh

I just started reading this today, and I am already in love with it. From what I’ve read, it’s light and fun. The main character, Evie, is outspoken and funny. I found myself trying not to laugh out loud while reading it because I was in public, and I would get served with some odd looks. And from the reviews I have read, there’s apparently a mystery to the book, so I’m excited to see what it is. Also, Evie is a journalist/writer, so I can really relate to her passion for that. It’s always nice to read a book where you understand the character’s job.

Work in Progress by Staci Hart

A book blogger and an author falling in love? A marriage of convenience? Sign me up! Staci Hart is one of my favorite indie authors, so naturally, I want to read this one. Hart has a very fun and quirky writing style that always keeps me entertained. Plus, this cover is adorable.

Meet Cute by Helena Hunting

I have never read a Helena Hunting book, but the premise of this book definitely seems like something I’m usually drawn to. My guilty pleasure in books is when an actor falls in love with a regular girl. Can that happen to me? Asking for a friend. I also like when the love interests have previously met because there’s that old flame thing going on that never really goes away. Once again, I was also drawn to this cover — it’s so bright and springy!

Roomies by Christina Lauren

If you’ve read my reviews on this site, you know I am a fan of Christina Lauren. I will read every romantic comedy they release because they’re just a good time. I started reading this book back in college but then had to, you know, study and graduate and stuff. So, it’s been on the backburner for a while, but from what I read, I really enjoyed it! Again, a marriage of convenience is also my jam. From what I can remember, I believe the main guy character is Irish, so there’s that. I’m just sayin’.
