Let’s Talk Bookish: Spring Books

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme that was originally created and hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books starting in August 2019, and was then cohosted with Dani @ Literary Lion from May 2020 to March 2022. Book Nook Bits has hosted since April 2022.

March 17: Spring Books

Prompts: What books do you like to read in spring? What makes you feel the change in the seasons? Is it the cover, or the content? Do you read certain genres in spring, or books set during the season? What books are on your spring 2023 tbr?

I’m not a huge seasonal reader, but I tend towards a bit more ‘lighter’ reads in the spring, though this is dependent on other things, too. For me, the biggest indicator in the change in seasons is definitely the weather, when the air gets a little warmer, the sky less bleak and grey, and there’s more flowers dotted here and there. I think although I don’t particularly seek out ‘spring’ books, I might lean towards them more – books with lighter covers, with more greens and blues than reds and oranges. I do think it’s the cover that can influence this more than the content, but that doesn’t mean the content isn’t important – if I picked up a ‘spring’ looking cover to find a dark, twisted splatterpunk story inside, I think I’d feel pretty angry.

In the spring, I might lean a bit more towards Romance or contemporary books, though sometimes it can be fun digging into some Horror and Fantasy with darker themes and ideas when the sun is brightening and everything feels like a fresh start, almost like a little reminder of things could be worse! For my Spring TBR, I’m focusing on trying to clear a few of my reading challenge books, and maybe picking up a couple other books between but it really depends on my mood and what I’ve read last.

Are there any particular books you enjoy during spring? Do you have a specific spring TBR or do you just go with whatever you like at the time

  1. The only season I really tend to read for is winter/Christmas when I get in the mood for cosy books, but even then I only tend to read one or two and then just carry on as normal haha. I also tried to read Ali Smith’s seasonal quartet in the appropriate season, probably unnecessarily.

    1. It’s only in recent years I’ve started picking up Christmas books, but yeah I don’t usually go out of my way for reading seasonally, but I think sometimes the weather impacts what I choose to read next depending on my mood
