Are you asking yourself What to Read This Spring? With warmer temperatures beginning to appear in the forecast, it’s time to take that book away from the cozy spot on the couch by the fireplace to a picnic in the park or on a beach vacation. If you need some help picking out the perfect book for this Spring, here are four books recommended by yours truly.
What to Read This Spring
The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P by Adelle Waldman
This book follows the story of a Brooklyn-based writer and his various relationships. Being referred to as a “cultural touchstone” by The Observer, this detail-oriented book frustratingly reveals what might be the most honest look at what goes on in a man’s brain in a relationship. It will make you giddy, excited, frustrated and angry – all of which someone feels in a relationship.
It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s life of Love and War by Lynsey Addario
I don’t regularly read non-fiction books, but this novel had my attention from the first sentence to the last word. Photojournalist Lynsey Addario gives the reader a front-line look at every war in the twenty-first century through her experiences covering each one. Steven Spielberg is now in the works to direct a movie based on the book, so read Lynsey’s story now before seeing it play out on the big screen. (Pssst: You can read an excerpt here.)
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
If you’re looking for a little mystery this spring, this book is the one for you. Being called the next “Gone Girl,” the book tells the story of Rachel and her train ride to and from London each day, along which she passes the home she shared with her ex-husband. He still lives there with his new wife and their child, but one day, Rachel sees something at the home, then the wife disappears. Go, read!
Yes Please by Amy Poehler
The literary scene has welcomed the latest and greats female comedians and their stories. Tina Fey and Mindy Kaling have released their non-fiction, hilarious books, and last fall, Amy Poehler cracked up audiences with her own. If you haven’t picked up this book yet, add it to your “to-do” list for March.
