The birds are chirping, the bees are buzzing, the sun is shining, and it’s finally a reasonable temperature out (here, at least…my apologies to anyone north of Virginia). That means it’s time to read…outside! Here are ten books I’m looking forward to reading this spring in the nice warm sun.
- Boy, Snow, Bird – Helen Oyeyemi. I’m really looking forward to reading this one. It’s on a list of possibilities for the DENTAC wives book club we’re trying to start (just in time for us to PCS again, of course), so hopefully we’ll get to it soon.
- Little Peach – Peggy Kern. I’m looking forward to reading this one, too, but I know I’m in for something pretty unsavory, so I’ve been a little hesitant. Has anyone read this yet?
- The Martian – Andy Weir. I’ve heard so many good things about this one, and luckily no spoilers! I’m really intrigued—how does someone survive on Mars, alone…trained astronaut or not? 0_0
- Find Me – Laura van den Berg. I’m a big fan of the disease-pandemic-leading-to-apocalypse genre, so I’m hoping this one will be right up my alley. I’ve also heard a lot of good things about this one!
- Touch – Claire North. As he dies, Kepler discovers he can hop from body to body, living with his host without leaving a trace. When one host is killed, he is determined to avenge her murder.
- A Clockwork Orange – Anthony Burgess. I know a lot of people read this classic in high school, but I never had the privilege. I’ve been meaning to read it and now I finally have a copy!
- Where They Found Her – Kimberly McCreight. I loved McCreight’s debut, Reconstructing Amelia, though I never got a chance to review it. Her sophomore novel sounds amazing.
- Everything I Never Told You – Celeste Ng. The death of a favorite daughter sends the Lee family tumbling into chaos. Sounds like just the right amount of drama, although I’ve heard the audiobook isn’t so great. (This isn’t a problem for me because I don’t do audiobooks, but for those of you who do, I thought I’d let you know.)
- Tiny Pretty Things – Sona Charaipotra. Totally psyched about reading a story about scary ballerinas. I’ve been there, and believe me, you don’t want to mess with serious dancers.
- The Fold – Peter Clines. Okay, okay, this one comes out in June—but early enough that it’s still technically spring.
