Hey there, book lovers!
While a pesky groundhog predicted a longer winter, we were graced with an early spring. That inspired me to create this month’s book list! Of course, getting some daylight back from Daylight Savings id nice too. So, without further ado, books inspired by the giant, blinding, ball in the sky that we are eternally stuck circling. And, honestly? I don’t know about you, but I can always use a little more sunshine and I’m excited to share a list on it. Maybe you’ve read a few of these and maybe you’ll add a couple to your TBR. I know I’m adding a few!
