Annie Recommends // Books for Spring

Where my university is at in North Carolina, we’ve been through one hell of a spring.  The weather has been swinging back and forth like a pendulum: last week, it was freezing and windy on Monday, but sunny and 75 and Friday.  We’re not quite sure what’s up with Mother Nature, but the temperatures have finally warmed up for good (we hope) and we’re all ready for some lovely spring weather.

And what goes better with warm weather than a book?  I’ve picked some of my favorite light, airy reads to get you in the mood for spring.


Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Find On // Amazon // Goodreads
Perhaps I’m recommending this book because I’m still hung up on it after reading it several weeks ago, but nonetheless, I think it’s the perfect spring read.  The atmosphere is so lush and colorful that all I wanted to do after reading was go to the beach and lie in the sun.

The Daughters by Joanna Philbin
Find On // Amazon // Goodreads
The Daughters is the quintessential easy read: it centers on the lives of Lizzie, Carina, and Hudson, who are the daughters of the Manhattan elite, as they navigate their inherent fame and make names for themselves.  I found this book to be the perfect beach read: light, fluffy, and all-around sweet.


Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
Find On // Amazon // Goodreads
Everything, Everything is about Madeline, who was diagnosed with a disease called SCID, which means she can’t leave her house; of course, falling in love with the boy next door causes some complications.  Maddy’s story of young love and what we’re willing to risk is a book that’s infused with joy and spirit, a pure celebration that’s a perfect quick weekend read.

Geekerella by Ashley Poston
Find On // Amazon // Goodreads
This endearing fairy tale retelling tells the story of Elle and Darien, our modern-day Cinderella and Prince Charming thrown together by happenstance and cosplay culture.  The South Carolina setting and quietly inspirational message provide all the feel-good vibes to help transition to spring.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
Find On // Amazon // Goodreads
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is as soft and lovely as its cover.  This springy read is about Lara Jean, who accidentally professes her love to all of her past crushes.  The adorable family dynamic paired with the fluffy plot make for the perfect read to get you in a springy state of mind.
