Today felt like a good day for a tag. I was recently tagged in the Spring Book Tag and, since it’s rather seasonal, I wanted to jump on it before I forget! Which I am wont to do at any moment in time, haha. This is a tag that celebrates one of my favorite seasons, as well, so I kinda have to do it, right? Right!
Thank you to the wonderful Ashlee @ Books Are 42 for tagging me. Not only does she have an awesome blog name, but incredible blog content, as well! I highly suggest checking her out if you haven’t already ❤ I, unfortunately, can’t seem to find who created this tag but, if you know, please let me know as well so I can give credit where credit is due.
Now, let’s get to the tag!
1. What’s on your Spring TBR list?
I’m attempting to stay on top of my ARCs, so my Spring TBR will be prioritizing Spring releases! Three of the top ones I want to get to are:
- The Carnival of Ash by Tom Beckerlegge
- The Merciless Ones by Namina Forna
- Juniper & Thorn by Ava Reid
I’m so excited to read all of these! Cross your fingers that I actually manage to fit them all in 😅
2. If someone asked you for a spring release recommendation, what would it be?
Well, besides the ones I mentioned above, my most anticipated read of 2022 is Fevered Star by Rebecca Roanhorse. So of course that’s going to be my recommendation! I’ve been (im)patiently waiting for this sequel since finishing Black Sun and I need it in my grabby, little hands. Thankfully, it just came out yesterday, so I am this much closer to owning it and finally continuing the story!
3. Which two books coming out before summer are you eagerly awaiting?
Two books I’m so excited to read are The Marvellers by Dhonielle Clayton and Hide by Kiersten White. As you might be able to tell by the covers, we have very different vibes going on here. One features a magical school and the other features a very deadly game of Hide & Seek. Both sound like books I’m really going to love!
4. Which character would make a great Easter bunny?
Can you imagine Jupiter North from the Nevermoor series by Jessica Townsend as the Easter Bunny? I very easily can 😂 He would be a fantastic Easter Bunny! He’s fun and whimsical and a tad cheeky, which I think fits the part perfectly.
Perhaps I just can’t stop chuckling at the thought of him in a bunny suit, but that’s neither here nor there!
5. What book makes you think of spring?
Here me out. I know Renaissance festivals tend to be more of a summer thing (depending on where you live), but Well Met by Jen DeLuca just screams spring to me. I think it’s all the pastel colors on the front and the fact that our main character, Emily, is getting a new beginning. What could be more spring-like than that? Also, contemporary romances always give me the warm fuzzies and so does spring.
6. Name a cover with flowers on it.
Instructions for Dancing by Nicola Yoon was almost my pick for the last question, but I felt like this leans towards a more summery feel. However, it definitely has flowers on the cover! This was such a touching and sweet book that made my heart happy and also crushed my soul. So… bear that in mind! We love a book that can multitask here on my little blog 😂 Seriously, though, this was a great read and made me want to pick something else up by this author.
7. Which two characters would you go on an Easter egg hunt with?
Ashlee’s answer to this question is kind of the perfect one, dang it! In an effort to pick something else, I’m gonna go with Tarisai and Dayo from Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko. Tarisai because she could touch whoever hid the eggs and borrow the memory of where they are hidden. Is this cheating? Maaaaybe, but we came to win! Dayo is just there for moral support. We love an adorable, supportive king ❤
8. What is your favorite Spring bookish activity?
Reading outside as soon as it is warm enough! Really, doing anything outside as soon as it’s warm enough. I’ve been cooped up all winter, I need to be FREE! Also, reading during a nice, spring rainstorm is simply divine.
9. Which book did you enjoy that has a spring-like cover?
Going through my Goodreads shelves, I realized that I haven’t read a ton of books with spring-like covers. I tend toward the darker, fall/wintery vibes, apparently. However, the cover for Across the Green Grass Fields by Seanan McGuire made me think spring! It’s all the green grass and blue skies. Also this is a rather good addition to one of my favorite series. This cover makes me want to sit under that tree and listen to the birds as I read, which is a very spring feeling, to me!
10. Who is your favorite contemporary author?
Oh. Oh dear. This is a tough question as I really don’t read a lot of contemporary books 😅 Um… Oh! I have the perfect author! I gotta go with Angie Thomas as all her books are contemporary (thus far) and I haven’t rated a single one I’ve read less than five stars. She definitely has a gift with the written word that instantly pulls me into her stories. Speaking of, I really need to read Concrete Rose. I know I’m gonna love it just as much as the others!

Thanks for the tag, Kerri! Haha, you know who I can DEFINITELY picture as the Easter bunny from Nevermoor? FRANK, the party vampire! 😂 I’d sooo love to see it! I can’t wait to read The Marvellers and I also really love Angie Thomas’ writing/books. I recently bought Concrete Rose and I can’t wait to read it too! Hope you enjoy it as much as the other two 😊
