For some weird reason I’m always more in the mood for reading in spring/summer than winter/autumn. And since I’ve finally found a way out of my reading slump from the previous months I though I’d show you a new reading list up here. I’m still 3 books behind on my Goodreads reading challenge, ugh – will I ever catch up? Anyway, here are 6 books that are either still on my spring reading list or which I’ve already read and loved this spring. Hope you like this selection and I can inspire you a bit to read some good books this spring.

My spring reading list 2016:
Americanah – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie // I put this book on my reading list because I’ve basically seen EVERYONE on the internet reading it over the past couple of weeks. Americanah, a story about love, race and difficult choice, is said to be Chimamanda’s best and most gripping novel so far. Which has to mean something because this woman has already received various awards for her novel Half of a Yellow Sun. So this baby just had to be part of my spring reading list! | TBR
A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic #2) – V.E. Schwab // Another one that I’ve wanted to read ever since I found out there’ll be a sequel. V.E. Schwab is a brilliant author and I deeply loved all of her books. So I’m about 90% sure that this one is gonna be amazing as well. A Gathering of Shadows is the second book in the Shades of Magic series and is placed 4 months after the first installment in this fantastic Young Adult series. You really gotta check it out if you haven’t already. | TBR
The Rosie Effect (Rosie Project #2) – Graeme Simsion // The Rosie Project was one of my absolute favorite books last year so it was about time I finally picked up the sequel to this hilarious novel. The Rosie Effect was equally as amazing as Simsion’s first book. I laughed, cried and actually learnt some new things while following Don’s new life in New York and the problems that occur after his beloved wife finds out she’s pregnant. Don Tillman is going to be a father and it’s absolutely hilarious! | Rating: 5/5 stars
Where’d You Go, Bernadette – Maria Semple* // Where’d you go, Bernadette is a fun and entertaining story about a 15 year-old trying to find her lost mom. Bernadette Fox is notorious, a disgrace to her fellow private-school mothers, a revolutionary architect, a loving mother and fearlessly opinionated partner to her husband. Then she disappears. I absolutely loved this book, laughed and cried during Bee’s search of her mother and did definitely not expect the book to end like this. I’d definitely recommend this novel if you’re in the need of a light-hearted and fun read. | Rating: 4.5/5 stars
The Last Days of Rabbit Hayes – Anna McPartlin // Rabbit Hayes is an ordinary woman, loving mother and friend. Then she’s diagnosed with cancer and suddenly her life, and those of everyone she loves, is about to change. Okay, let’s be honest: the title itself already suggests this book to be sad and oh boy, sad it is. I literally cried my eyes out while following Rabbit Hayes last days and the problems and fears connect to these specific circumstances. | Rating: 4/5 stars
After You (Me before You #2) – Jojo Moyes // I have to admit that, at first, I wasn’t really sure whether I really want to read this book or not. Of course, I was curious what Moyes came up with after the massive success of Me before You. But at the same time I was utterly afraid of being disappointed due to this book not being able to compare to the first one. And it didn’t! It was a fun and lovely read but compared to Me before You it was a tad tedious and annoying. Nevertheless I think putting it on your sping reading list is definitely worth a shot because I know a lot of people who loved this one as well. Maybe it’s just me. | Rating: 3.5/5 stars
