If you’ve been here at Fangirl Fury for a while (okay, a little while), you’ll know though I’m constantly reaching for contemporary books. However, I find myself reading the most contemporary during spring and summer—they’re the perfect companions for outdoor reading! For today’s Top Five Wednesday, I’ll be discussing the top five books that remind me of spring and get me ready for no winter jacket weather! Break out the dresses and books please.
The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang- Speaking of dresses, The Prince and the Dressmaker reminds me of spring thanks to Jen Wang’s use of pastels and bright colors. I also ate it up in one night last spring!
How to Be Bad by E.Lockhart, Sarah Mlynowski, & Lauren Myracle- This fangirl loves her ‘throwback’ YA, including How to Be Bad. I can’t remember during what season it takes place, but the book reminds me of a stereotypically wild spring break trip.
This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills- When I think of spring, I think of green, which leads me to the cover of Emma Mills’ This Adventure Ends. I also think of spring as a time to reset and refresh, between the end of the school year and the warmer weather to come. This Adventure Ends is all about refreshing and resetting, as Sloane starts another year of high school after her family relocates to Florida and makes new, all-consuming but heartfelt friends.
Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys- This is another example of a book’s aesthetic reminding me of spring. Out of the Easy’s paperback cover and its color schemes just screams spring to me.
Always Never Yours by Emily Wibberly and Austin Siegemund-Broka- Another beautiful book cover, another book cover that screams spring. While the book takes place roughly over a school year, Always Never Yours follows Megan’s nightmare of being cast as Juliet in the spring production of Romeo and Juliet . I know this book pops up on a ton of recommendations and listicle posts, but it’s very much worth the hype!
