March 17: Spring Books (Aria)

Prompts: What books do you like to read in spring? What makes you feel the change in the seasons? Is it the cover, or the content? Do you read certain genres in spring, or books set during the season? What books are on your spring 2023 tbr?

Welcome to another week of LTB here at DTRH, everyone! Today’s topic is from our very own host, Aria! If you haven’t followed her yet, make sure to check out her awesome blog (linked above) and give her a follow if you like her content.

Spring (and I suppose summer) is where I tend to branch off and just read whatever sometimes, and not stick to my usual picks. That being said, where I am, it is currently not spring. There is snow everywhere and it is too cold to even retire my winter jacket. Brrrr. But if it were spring, I think I’d definitely try to read some other genres, like fantasies or romances. It always feels like an opportunity to try something new and fresh, which reflects the vibes of the spring season.

It’s definitely the weather and the increase in sunlight that makes me feel the change in weather, which I think also changes my mood and energy levels. As a result, I get in the mood to read stuff I usually wouldn’t. It could be the cover, it could be the content, but either way I feel like I’m usually most open to random suggestions from my friends around this time of year. Although of course the biggest variable is still probably finding space in a busy schedule.

I’d definitely appreciate some spring-themed books cropping up around this time of year. I suppose a green/nature-y cover could definitely draw my attention instead of the usual dark, cozy mystery types that are so prevalent in the winter. I don’t purposely set books to be read during this season, and certainly don’t commit them to my TBR. But this is also around the time of year where I’ll finally get to those books that my friends had suggested months ago—oops!

How about you all? Do you have spring reads? Or is anything different about your reading habits in the spring? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. I don’t really plan for spring like I do fall and winter for some reason. I usually read whatever I can get my hands on in the spring. There’s not really a particular genre that I stick to. But I do love to read outside in the spring.

  2. I’m not much of a seasonal reader because in the tropics it’s perpetually summer (and the only other “season” we have is the rainy season) but I like your reasoning for choosing something new in the Spring! It definitely sounds like it suits the seasonal vibe 🙂

    1. Summer beach reads all year long then! Just kidding haha. But I do wonder how my reading habits would be different if I lived in the tropics.
