Now that the snow has finally stopped in England, flowers are beginning to bloom and the sun shines for longer, I thought it was about time to start getting in the spring mood.
I always find myself more engrossed in the story when I read books in whatever season they’re set in. I love reading about snowy landscapes in winter, with dark and Gothic settings in autumn and those with new beginnings and beautiful, blooming settings in spring.
There’s something about reading in the fresh, crisp air with the hope of summer just around the corner that makes me feel optimistic, partly because of the nostalgia I associate with reading in the sun.
I thought I would write a post about some of the classic books I love reading at this time of year! Though these books aren’t necessarily set in spring, often the writing spans throughout all the seasons, the themes they discuss and the description or writing-style put me in the spring mood!
