I didn’t make it to everything from my Spring TBR (approx. 40%). My workload drastically changes plus I got COVID which sucked, and lead me down a few different roads reading wise. Specifically, I read a lot more middle grade and significantly shorter novels than I have previously leaned towards. I read 54 books this spring and enjoyed most of them! Definitely diversified my reading more than normal into different genres and was pleasantly surprised. The average rating of the season was 3.89 stars. What was your favorite book you read this spring?

Happy Spring! I hope you are all enjoying warmer weather and will have access to vaccines soon! I wanted to have a more targeted TBR for the season and make some progress in the books I own. These are all books I own that I just haven’t been making time for and want to get around to reading this spring. If you have read any, which should I get to first?

Everyone loves Spring. It just seems like everyone is so excited for it and I do not understand.
Spring is either hot or rainy. Like so much rain — do you know how many pairs of shoes I have lost to a mud puddle? It’s also quite warm while being wet which is an icky feeling. There are so many people outside and parking just sucks because everyone is out and about. There also children in the park where I normally walk my dog so I need to change my dog walking routine because people make her too nervous.
Do not even get me started on the pollen count. There are so many things that make me sneeze and sneeze and I can’t smell any of the Barbecue smells!
Basically I am not looking forward to the next three months for several reasons and have decided to blame it on the climate.
