Hello lovelies! It’s been a little while, a thousand apologies. Between the holidays, family emergencies and some refurbishments, I had to take a little break from blogging. But I am back and ready to recommend some perfect spring time must reads! Spring officially just started March 20th so pick up one or two of these bad boys to start the season off right!
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo
Spring time means spring cleaning, so why not pick up this beloved piece by Marie Kondo. This book has already helped millions change their relationship with their ‘stuff’ and declutterify their house. And yes, declutterify is a term that I use on a regular basis.
The BFG by Roald Dahl
This beloved children’s novel hits the big screen this summer (July 1st to be specific) ! So now would be the perfect time for a reread! Charming and delightful, as all of Dahl’s work proves to be, this story is sure to leave you feeling five again, and I mean that in the wind in your hair, jumping in the sprinklers, digging worms out of the ground kind of five years old. The best kind of five 🙂
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
This book doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with springtime, I just read it recently and I fell head over for it. This is a devastatingly good story about two sisters living in France during WWII, and you won’t soon forget it! I’ve still got myself a serious reader’s hangover from it a week after finishing!
The Portable Veblen: A Novel by Elizabeth Mckenzie
Quirky. Entertaining. Offbeat. And a whimsical talking squirrel- what’s not to love? This fun novel achieves authenticity in it’s finest, which is the perfect outlook for a fresh, new season!
When Breath Becomes Air by Deckle Edge
We are not below the New York Bestellers List here at belletriste. Every once in awhile a book so revolutionary makes an appearance, and change the way it’s readers will think forever. This is one of those books. A very touching memoir about a neurosurgeon facing terminal lung cancer, this book is indeed a breath of fresh air. And oh yeah- it will break your heart. But a heart needs to be broken from time to time, so we can put it back together just a little bit stronger than it was before.
