Spring Reads!


I have just discovered a group who post blogging prompts for every Wednesday. The prompt for today is spring reads. For this, I have decided to write about the top 5 books that I would like to read for the season of Spring. These are not necessarily related to Spring but these are books that I am very excited for.

The first book that I would like to read is Witch Hat Atelier volume 1 by Kamome Shirahama. This is a manga that I seem to be seeing everywhere! I am not going to lie, the cover is the first thing that attracted me to this book. The picture of the main character is really cute. As someone who loves manga-related art and paintings, this cover instantly drew my attention. Secondly, the title features the words ‘Witch’ and ‘Atelier’, there is a game series following different characters who run an Atelier, a workshop where they would craft food and products out of ingredients that you have found so when I saw this on a manga, I was intrigued. Witch Hat Atelier follows a girl who wishes to possess magic, which I can relate to as I always wanted to discover that I had a superpower. However, along the way she discovers that she is amazing as she is. I feel like this is a great lesson for anyone, you do not need to be magical to help people or to change the world.


The next book is Heartstopper Volume One by Alice Oseman. I have not read anything from Alice Oseman so far but I have seen a lot of people raving about her books. From what I have seen, she writes cute and informative contemporaries. Alice Oseman created this webcomic series. This is a love story featuring two boys. I feel like these comics are going to be super cute and I am so excited.


Another book that I really want to read is The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon. This is a behemoth book that features dragons and a female-female relationship. Samantha Shannon is also the author of The Bone Season series. I am going to pick up The Bone Season first as it is shorter and I would like to start with her earlier works first.


An additional book series that I would like to start is The Mistborn Series by Brandon Sanderson. I have book one, The Final Empire on my shelf. I read a few chapters of it a while ago and I really enjoyed it. It was intriguing, immersive and well-written. I am not sure why I put this book down- some reason I got busy most likely but I really want to read all of Brandon Sanderson’s books.


The last book that I would like to read this Spring is another TBR veteran and that is A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. I wrote about her other book series, Throne of Glass in my first TBR purge update. I have the first book in this other series by her and I would like to try it out. This series follows a girl who lives near the woods, one day, she kills a wolf who was actually a magical creature and for this she is taken away to a magical kingdom.

If you have read any of these books please let me know what you thought of them!
