Spring Reading List



I have gathered a few books on my spring reading list, both from favorite authors, as well as new to me authors with books that have intrigued me. It will be a busy spring season for me with much to do around my house; both inside and out. My love of gardening will compete with my love of reading, but there will always be time at the end of the day to sit down with a favorite book. It's a lovely reward for a day of hard work outside in the spring sunshine.



I always enjoy any novel by Anna Quindlen and look forward to this new book available April 5th. Her writing is always lovely and emotional.



The story of three American women living in the expat community in Hong Kong is getting very good reviews and recommended for book clubs.



A psychological thriller being compared to Gone Girl and A Girl on the Train.

One of my favorite mystery series is back with a new book on May 17th. The heroine, Anna Pigeon is a U.S. Park Ranger and these stories put her in unique locations around the United States. She is an interesting character who always finds herself in physically grueling outdoor situations.



One of my favorite characters, China Bayles, is back on April 5th with a new mystery to solve and lots of interesting details about herbal gardening, her daytime occupation.



This mystery series is a recent discovery. I read through all the books in this series last year and look forward to the latest. The heroine, Ruth Galloway is a forensic archeologist; smart and interesting with a touch of feminist leanings that make her dealings with male colleagues a little on the feisty side.


Happy Reading!



  1. I really enjoy the Nevada Barr books - thanks for reminding me to look for the new book. I read The Expatriates - thought it was just an "ok" read, but liked it. My favorite book lately was Eight Hundred Grapes. Thanks for the recommendations.

  2. Can't wait to read your take on these.

  3. Hello Vicki, I too love reading books. Thanks for these recommendations. I hope you enjoy reading them. Enjoy the week and have a Happy Easter.

  4. I put them on my to read list. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  5. It is always nice to hear about new authors and books! Thanks for sharing!

  6. I've not run across any of these! Thanks for the list of ideas!

  7. Always look forward to your reading recommendations. Right now, I'm reading Amy Tan's "Valley of Amazement" and quite enjoying it's story about a young courtesan in early 20th century China.

  8. Oh you . . .
    I gotta stop reading your "lists"
    Of reading . . .
    Or I will NEVER get anything accomplished . . .
    (Honestly, seriously . . . I count on you for some of my reading,)


Thanks for reading!
