It’s Finally Spring!

As the title suggests, today I’m celebrating spring! In the form of a bookish spring tag! I found this tag on Anna’s blog, Scones and Tomes, and it looked like good fun.

How do you decorate your bookshelf?

I don’t use much in the way of decorations, but I do have a few cards from my boyfriend scattered around! I would put some plants on there, but they prefer the windowsill where they get a lot of light!

Recommend a book with beautiful nature description

It’s maybe spooky more than beautiful, but I love th way the landscape is described in Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.

Show us a book with a beautiful cover

I’m going with Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell for this one! It’s just as gorgeous under the dust jacket as it is with the dust jacket on.

Spring is about fresh starts, great time to start a series, what would you recommend?

I really don’t read many series! The Outline trilogy by Rachel Cusk makes me think of summer though, so reading that might get you in the mood for sunbathing and warm weather.

Its almost time to start reading outside, have you been brave enough?

I’m writing this quite a while before it’s posted, and I haven’t read outside yet, but I did have breakfast outside this morning. By the time this gets posted I’ll probably have been reading outside!

Spring cleaning, what are some books you’re planning to unhaul?

I unhauled a lot recently, and they’re just waiting to be either sold or taken to a charity shop, so right now there aren’t any more on my shelves I’ll be adding to the unhaul pile.

Follow up, which ones will you replace them with?

Well, my “to buy” list on GoodReads is over 100 books long, so… I’ll pick a couple!
The Dud Avocado by Elaine Dundy, because what a title.
Black Sun by Toby Martinez de las Rivas, because I could do with a bit more poetry.
And The Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton, because I’ve seen a lot about that recently.

I’m tagging…
