I have to be honest, I have had enough of the winter. It’s time to move on. The sun has been out more recently and while it’s still cold I can slowly start to feel the warmth increasing as the days go by. In preparation for the new season here are a couple of books that I think would be a great read for when spring finally rolls around.
- Title: The Promised Neverland Vol. 1
- Author: Kaiu Shirai
- Series: The Promised Neverland
- Genre: Mystery
Plot: Life at Grace Field House has been good for Emma and her fellow orphans. While the daily studying and exams they have to take are tough, their loving caretaker provides them with delicious foods and plenty of playtime. But perhaps not everything is as it seems… Emma, Norman and Ray are the brightest kids at the Grace Field House orphanage. And under the care of the woman they refer to as “Mom,” all the kids have enjoyed a comfortable life. Good food, clean clothes and the perfect environment to learn—what more could an orphan ask for? One day, though, Emma and Norman uncover the dark truth of the outside world they are forbidden from seeing.
Now, I chose this as the setting is very spring like. Rolling fields, the sun is shining. A very picturesque setting which I thought matches perfectly for the season. I also think spring represents all things new and this is a great completed series (20 volumes) to start if you are craving something super engaging and my one line to you is that looks can be deceiving.
- Title: A Court of Thorns and Roses
- Author: Sarah J. Maas
- Series: A Court of Thorns and Roses #1
- Genre: Fantasy Romance
Plot: When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world. As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.
If you want something really easy but also an engaging read I would suggest this book. Most of the book is set in a kingdom where it is constantly spring (a bit on the nose I know oop…) but I did find this book to be a super easy read. I would read pages on pages with each sitting. This is a great book to just lose yourself in and forget about the world.
- Title: The Remarried Empress Season 1
- Author: Alphatart
- Series: The Remarried Empress
- Genre: Fantasy Romance
Plot: Navier Ellie Trovi was an empress perfect in every way — intelligent, courageous, and socially adept. She was kind to her subjects and devoted to her husband. Navier was perfectly content to live the rest of her days as the wise empress of the Eastern Empire. That is, until her husband brought home a mistress and demanded a divorce. “I accept this divorce… And I request an approval of my remarriage.” In a shocking twist, Navier remarries another emperor and retains her title and childhood dream as empress. But just how did everything unfold?
Maybe you actually want a more political and lengthy series that has you screaming at the characters in this webtoon. Out of anger, out of support, out of exasperation. This series is a whirlwind of emotions! It’s currently on WebToon which is a free app or they have a website. This series has now started it’s second season! I, again chose this due to its setting, I just feel that it works super well for the season!
One thought on “Spring Recommendations 2022”
I enjoyed A Promised Neverland and The Remarried Empress. Highly recommend.
