We are officially into the spring season (thank baby Jesus), and I for one am feeling much more motivated as of late which includes tackling my personal reading list. As per us, wanted to share my spring must-reads which includes some recent notable stand outs that are tried and tested and a few that are on my list in the coming weeks.
As always, you can pick up all my spring must-reads at your local Indigo, or via their website. I’ve linked them all for you below, and would love to hear your feedback on any of these reads or your own anticipated ones!!
Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid – leading with this one bc if you’ve seen on my insta, I absolutely LOVED this book. It’s a fiction of a rock band in the 70s as they become mega famous, as told from the perspective of each of the members (and a few key others). Such great writing and you will love the characters. It was the Indigo staff pick of the month for March, a Reese Witherspoon bookclub pick, and is being adapted for a mini-series by Amazon. Go get it.
Us Against You by Frederik Backman – not as newly released, but another fantastic read (it’s the sequel to Beartown which was a top fave of mine when it came out). It continues the story of the local hockey team so has the same great characters but new focus they deal with the threat of the team shutting down. Examines real issues with the characters as in the first.
Watching You by Lisa Jewell – Of course I had to include a thriller, and this one is one of the better ones I’ve read in the last couple months. I devoured it on my honeymoon and I didn’t guess the ending so that’s pretty impressive. Surrounds a seemingly admirable headmaster and his relationships with a few different neighbours and students on his street.
The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith – another sequel and the 2nd of 4 in this series by J.K. Rowling’s pseudonym. All mysteries, this one is about a missing writer and private detective Strike’s efforts to find him. Long, but the same good writing you’d expect from J.K.
I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara – so this was another one that I LOVED which is surprising because I’m not usually into true crime. It spans decades of the writer’s search for the Golden State Killer (real person) and all her research. Actually terrifying but so well written and you will definitely become obsessed with the case.
The Huntress by Kate Quinn – another genre I’m recently exploring (historical fiction), but only because I loved The Alice Network so much which is by the same author. I haven’t started this one yet but it’s next on my list and I’m confident it will be good.
