Spring has sprung here in London. I love all the flowers that pop up across the city, in parks and in front of flats and just in random weird places because literally anything will grow in this climate if it’s given half a chance.

I’m also really excited to read some new books. But that’s not really a spring thing.

So, what’s on the ol’ TBR this month?

Circle of Shadows (Evelyn Skye). It’s a story about magic ninja BFFs in an Asian-inspired fantasy land, and I got my mitts on a copy with lavender sprayed pages. It looks so pretty on my shelf – but I’m ready to crack it open.

The Queens of Innis Lear (Tessa Gratton). This one’s been on my TBR for a while, and my local library just got a copy. Shoutout to everyone else for not checking it out before I managed to get to the library.

The Hobbit (JRR Tolkien). Okay, I’m halfway through re-reading this one. But you can’t read Tolkien quickly! His writing is meant to be savoured. I’m really enjoying taking this re-read nice and slow, and just letting myself be carried away by Tolkien’s incredible prose.

Reign of the Fallen (Sarah Glenn Marshall). The sequel just came out, which means that this is the perfect time to read the first book. Why wait for books when you can, you know, not wait?

The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage (Sydney Padua). So far, I’ve read all the comics in this book. Now it’s time to go back and read all the footnotes. This one’s going to take me a wee while.

What’s on your spring TBR? Do you like to set big reading goals? How do you find time to read?
