spring/summer reads 2020


despite everything else going on in the world, spring has truly started. The sun is shining, the plants are starting to grow, and my book reading has pivoted to books about the beach, spring flings, and happy books.

There are lots of books coming out in the next few months that you should definitely read. Some of these I have read already and others I am waiting till their release dates, but either way they may help in this time of staying at home.

While the physical stores and libraries may be closed you can still but online from many local bookstores, and most libraries are beefing up their online books and if you haven’t tried the Libby app yet, you really should check it out!

Now these are obviously based on my personal reading preferences so you may be excited to read other books coming out in the next few months. What are you excited to read soon?
