Spring Favorites

I completely forgot to do my spring favorites this year! Fortunately, there’s still time (we’re not quite into July yet) so I thought I’d post them before it slipped my mind entirely.

This was a bit of a slow reading season for me – I had a lot going on – and I read more mediocre books than good ones. So I didn’t have that many favorites, unfortunately. But I was still able to come up with a few to share with you!

Click the links below to see my monthly wrap up for each of the months included in this favorites post. Any reviews I’ve done for these books are also linked.

  1. Leonardo da Vinci by Walter Isaacson. I loved this book so much! It is easily the best biography I’ve ever read. I had so much fun reading it, and it reignited my love of art (I’m definitely bad at it, but I love studying it and can appreciate good art). Highly recommend this one!
  2. The Darkling Bride by Laura Anderson. I read this on a whim, hoping for something fun. What I got was a really interesting mystery with a lot of historical elements. I enjoyed this a lot, and will definitely be reading more by Laura Anderson!
  3. Jane Seymour: The Haunted Queen by Alison Weir. I absolutely love this series – it’s so interesting and engaging! Weir has cemented herself as one of my favorite authors. This book was brilliant. I truly loved it, and can’t wait to read the next installment.
  4. Hamlet by William Shakespeare. Last month, I decided to finally read Hamlet and I have no regrets. It’s not my absolute favorite Shakespeare play, but it’s up there with Macbeth and King Lear (why do I love the tragedies so much?). I enjoyed this quite a bit, and finally understand all of the Hamlet references that are in pretty much everything.

That’s it for my spring favorites! June hasn’t been the best reading month, either, but I’m hoping to have some more favorites for the summer. I need to get back into reading books I love.

What’s your favorite spring read from this year?
