So, apparently today is the first day of spring. Seeing as how it snowed all day yesterday, and has been all cold and wet outside today, I’m not buying it! That does not mean I’m not in the mood, though! I can’t wait for sunshine, warm weather, and flowers. It’s also during this part of the year that I start craving cute contemporary romances and books about people going on vacations to the beach or a cabin. Anywhere, really. So, here we have my top ten books for springtime! Some of them are new releases, and some are ones I’ve been trying to get to for quite a while.
The Fine Art of Truth of Dare by Melissa Jensen
Everyone I know has read this already! I’ve been dying for it since the day I found out it was being published eons ago. It sounds adorable, and just like the kind of book to brighten my wintery mood.
Tempest Rising by Tracy Deebs (and the sequel, Tempest Unleashed. I got both from Netgalley, so thanks!)
Hello, young adult mermaid romance novel! I am SO excited. Mermaids are my FAVORITE! And seriously, do mermaids not scream warm weather, white sand beaches, and undersea fun?
Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
Duh. I’ll just leave it at that. I loved Delirium so much. I actually read it while I was on a cruise, and the ending ripped me apart so much that I almost threw myself overboard. This has to be read really soon. REALLY soon.
Girl at Sea by Maureen Johnson
Yes, please! A girl on a Mediterranean cruise? The title sold me, and Maureen is one of my favorite authors! I have a wonderful feeling that this book is going to be amazing.
Austentatious by Alyssa Goodnight
This sounds like a fun little contemporary romance set in Austin, Texas with a Jane Austen spin! I love Jane Austen spin-offs, but me recent encounters with them have left me disappointed. I hope this one is amazing, and reminds me of why I love books like this so much.
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
This title gets me every time! It’s so adorable and looooooong. And a romance in an airport? YES. (I know. How have I not read this already?) I am really excited for it!
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Again, duh. Seriously? I can’t believe this one is still unread. Insurgent is coming out really soon also, so I need to have this read before that one hits the shelves. I want to be cool and read book #2 when everyone else is reading it!
Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella
I have not read a book of hers yet, and this sounds like so much fun! Another plane romance. I hate planes, but love where they take you!
Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally
Ok, another one I should have read months ago. I’ve heard amazing things about it, and it sounds so cute!
Are You Going to Kiss Me Now? by Sloane Tanen
“High school junior Francesca Manning is an outsider, an aspiring writer and secret devourer of celebrity gossip mags. A fake essay to “Seventeen” wins her the celeb-schmoozing opportunity of a lifetime, but after the plane crashes, she’s stranded on a desert island with five of the most clueless, self-involved headcases to escape Hollywood.”
Haha! Sounds interesting, and fun!
So, there you have it! Have you read any of these and loved/hated them? What’s on your list?
