Finally the snow is melting and spring is on the way. That doesn’t mean that Minnesota won’t get another snowfall, but spring snowfalls tend to be wet, heavy, and melts quickly. Let’s hope there will be no more snow! But I thought I’d take this time to do another book tag, this one themed around spring.
1) How is Spring where you live?
Usually spring is all about melting snow, since I live in cold Minnesota. Spring in the form of blossoming flowers and lively birdsongs doesn’t actually arrive until usually June. And then the unbearable heat comes within a few weeks. But by that time, I will hopefully be living in Ohio, which has slightly more temperate climates.
2) Most anticipated book release this Spring?
I don’t usually anticipate books anymore, because I’m usually disappointed when I do. But this book, released originally in February, 2019 (though this copy is going to be released April 9, 2019), looks fascinating to me. It examines the lives of Jack the Ripper’s Canonical Five Victims (the five victims most often attributed to him). I have been fascinated with the murders for years, but to be honest I know very little of the lives of the victims before they were murdered. Thus, I’m really excited to read this book…not exactly happy for springtime, I know.
3) Show us a book cover that makes you think of Spring.
Honestly, any book with bright flowers on the cover makes me think of Spring, but this copy of The Secret Garden from 2011 Penguin Classics is just so perfect!
4) Where are you going to read this Spring?
Outside, as much as possible! During winter, I’m stuck reading in my room all the time. But in spring (especially late spring), I can finally sit outside and read! Usually I’ll sit on my deck with my dog.
5) Find a cover with the sun on it!
This was a great book, but what drew me to it in the first place was the beautiful cover! It’s crazy how red the sky looks.
6) What are your favorite Spring reads?
I don’t have any. I read new books all the time, so I rarely reread books.
7) Find a book with many different colors on it.
I haven’t read this book (it’s a mystery), but I saw the cover and I was like, “Wow!” That is a lot of colors. It almost hurts my eyes.
8) Whom do you tag?
As always, I’m not tagging anyone, but if you’d like to do this tag, I’d love to read your answers!
