I’ve found that some of the best reads come from spring or autumn, so to help narrow down some options for my readers I’ve complied a list of some of my most anticipated releases of the season and can hardly wait to get my hands on finished copies of these bad boys. It goes without saying that taste is subjective and this short list is only suggestions that have caught my eye in recent weeks, so take this with a grain of salt.
Let's face it: a lot of sunshine and a good novel goes a long way when it comes down to it at the end of the day. Whether your choice read is for in between classes, ever-so-short work breaks or for your own personal pleasure in the sunshine, readers everywhere will be tripping over themselves to pick up copies of these twelve novels. Between work and social interactions and endless binge watching of The X-Files, these books have captured my attention and found their way onto this list for one reason or another.
1. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare (March 8th, 2016): Set five years after the conclusion to the beloved series The Mortal Instruments, Clare reunites readers with her vivid Shadowhunters world with a look into the lives of Emma Carstairs, the young girl readers met for the first time in City of Heavenly Fire. As the first book in a new series The Dark Artifices, it has a lot to live up to. With Los Angeles as its primary setting and cameos by our favorites from The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices, it makes the perfect suspenseful read for a sunny or rainy spring night. Driven by strong lead characters, high action stakes and yes a little romance and a whole lot of sarcasm, Cassandra Clare proves once more her fantastic chops when it comes to her novels.
So there we have it! Twelve great reads to keep you comfortable this spring. What books are you most looking forward to in the coming months?
