10 Books On My Spring TBR 

As the days get longer, there is more time for … well, for anything, right? Sure I love to go running in the park when the weather is nice, but I also like sitting in said park and reading a few (or a lot of) pages of my current read. I try to make time for all the things I enjoy doing.

That being said, 10 books I’m looking forward to reading in the next few weeks are:

Non-Fiction

  1. Wellth: How I Learned to Build a Life, Not a Résumé by Jason Wachob
  2. The Good Heart: A Buddhist Perspective on the Teachings of Jesus by Dalai Lama
  3. In Other Words by Jhumpa Lahiri
  4. Everyone Communicates, Few Connect: What the Most Effective People Do Differently by John Maxwell
  5. Novel Writing: A Writers’ and Artists’ Companion by Romesh Gunesekera

10 books to add to your spring TBR Shelf Fiction:

  1. Fangirl: A Novel by Rainbow Rowell
  2. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
  3. The Ship of Brides by JoJo Moyes
  4. Sheltering Rain by JoJo Moyes
  5. Windfallen by JoJo Moyes

You might wonder why I am reading multiple books by these two lady authors. It’s something I’ve done before and I promise there’s a good reason for it – I find an author I admire and read lots of their work trying to figure out their style and look for similarities between their books. Right now, I am doing a study on JoJo Moyes – so far, I’ve read 5 of her popular novels – One Plus One, Me Before You, After You, The Girl You Left Behind and The Last Letter from Your Lover.  Look for my “research paper” coming soon.

I did a similar study on Liane Moriarty last year.

Also, last year,  I read Landline by Rainbow Rowell but didn’t love it, Since then, I’ve heard repeatedly, that she’s a great novelist so I decided to read a few others of her books to see if I can fall in love with her books too.

What are you reading these days? What’s on your TBR?

  1. I didn’t love Landline either. I recently read another by Rowell, Attachments, and that one was a little bit better. You’ll have to say what you think about the two of her books on your list and if they are worth giving her a THIRD try!

      Interesting. It’s like we’re on a similar reading plan. I just read Attachments last week too. I liked it – not great but I thought a definite improvement over Landline. I’ll be sure to share what I think about the others too.
      Thanks for the comment.

    Landline was, by far, my least favourite Rainbow Rowell book; Eleanor & Park was my fave of the lot. I’m always interested in hearing others’ takes.

      Yeah, she has a big following – lots of “Fangirls”. I wonder if it’s a coincidence that that’s the name of her book 😀

  4. Fangirl was a fairly cute read. Eleanor & Park is still sitting on my TBR though. I hope your spring is filled with amazing reads!
