5 Books to Read this Spring

Here’s some of my favorite recent reads:

The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George

Received from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review. Loved, loved, loved this novel! It has it all: romance, friendship, dreamy destinations, beautiful insights into human emotions. It’s a wonderful read, especially for book lovers! I liked all  of the characters, and characters they were! They were eccentric but lovable, kind of like townies. The protoganist Perdu, runs a literary apothecary and believes in the healing power of books. Although he frustrated me sometimes being too dramatic, I enjoyed his journey to heal himself. We learn about his late lover through her memoirs and at first I didn’t like her at all but she did grow on me. Overall, just great and has some beautiful statements that make you look deeper at love, loss and time. It will also give you some serious Wanderlust!

The Rumor by Elin Hilderbrand

This was the first Elin Hilderbrand book I read and I really enjoyed it. I will definitely be turning to her whenever I’m looking for casual read. Set in the summer in Nantucket, it has plenty of luxury, drama and romance. I also liked (as always) how it was told from multiple characters point of view. It was a quick and easy read!

The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes

Listening to this book on Audible confirmed that JoJo Moyes books are my favorite to listen to! They flow so well and are so easy to focus on while listening. I really enjoyed this story, it involves two women, Sophie and Liv, living about a century a part who are connected by a painting. Sophie is a member of a French village occupied by Germans during the First World War, I especially loved her character and story.

Not Working by Lisa Owens

Received from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. This is a series of quick vignettes told from the eyes of a twenty-something who just quit her office job to find her real passion while everyone around her seems to have it all figured out. It’s the quintessential quarter-life crisis book and I found myself laughing out loud at some points. It was another quick and easy read I really liked!

Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris

This thriller totally threw me for a loop. From the beginning you could tell something was off in “the perfect marriage” but the author does a great job of slowly filling you in on what is really going on. I thought it really well written and intriguing.

Linking up with Amanda, Andrea , April, Tif and Karli!
