Spring. I don’t have a favorite season, but if I had to list them spring would be at the bottom. In the summer, I work and my writing productivity tends to increase. In the fall, there’s Halloween. In the winter it’s nice and cold until February makes it awful. Spring means the end of February but also is the season of ragweed.
Two (good) books come to me when I think of spring:
The Language Of Flowers, Vanessa Diffenbaugh
Beautiful in a depressing way, Victoria moves from foster care to a park, to working at the flower shop.
Its’ spring-ness can be explained by the title, as Victoria uses The Language Of Flowers to create messages within her floral creations.
I recommend it if you can handle hard things like depression. Best read in early spring.
Strange The Dreamer, Laini Taylor
This book is beautiful and it ruined books for me. Where else can you find this much detail, this many references to books, and this much general beauty?!
It’s spring cause it builds up to a new beginning, a revolution of sorts. Lazlo starts a new life by going off to find Weep, the legendary land that isolated itself without explanation. Also, look at the cover!
In short, this book has blue people and a book lover and you need to read it right now if you haven’t already.
What would you, dear reader, recommend for springtime?
