Greetings, everyone! Spring is almost upon us, which means it’s time to clean out our rooms, dust off our shelves, and put some shiny new books on them. There are so many exciting releases to look forward to in the coming season. For this purpose, we’ve put together a list of our most anticipated releases of spring 2017 (spring being March, April, and May where we live). The books are listed in order of publication date (as stated on Goodreads) and clicking on the titles will direct you to the respective Goodreads page. We hope you find some intriguing books to keep you entertained as we watch the snow melt away and the first flowers start to bloom – and if you were born in May, like the both of us, you might find some releases to put on your birthday wishlists!
Top 5 Wednesday is a Goodreads group hosted by Lainey from Ginger Reads Lainey and Samantha from Thoughts on Tomes. Every Wednesday of the month, readers and bloggers present their Top 5 Wednesday choices for a specific topic. Today’s topic are book trends we’re tired of, which can refer to both the appearance of books as well as their content. Because I’ll find something positive about almost every book cover, I’ll be focusing on content-based trends and tropes I’ve grown tired of. Of course, my top choices would be insta-love and love triangles since we still seem to get those worn-out tropes, especially in YA, but I’ve tried to come up with a few a bit more creative trends I wish we could erase from the publishing industry for good.
