Spring TBR

Each season I pick a handful of books I’ve been wanting to read and set a goal to read them before the end of the season. Below is everything on my Spring to-be-read list. I’ve had some extra time on my hands recently, so I’m tracking ahead which means I’ve already finished a few of these. For the ones I have finished, I’ll give a review.

Me: Elton John by Elton John

Although I wouldn’t say I dislike Elton John’s music, I certainly wouldn’t consider myself a fan. Outside of “Tiny Dancer” (which TBH I only know because Almost Famous is one of my favorite movies) I couldn’t name any of his songs. That being said, you don’t have to love his music to enjoy his book. I found it really raw and I love his sense of humor. The book feels a bit like a train of thought sometimes which for me, made it kind of difficult to follow at times and it is a pretty lengthy book. Some trigger warnings for this book include substance abuse, attempted suicide, body image issues (including disordered eating), and abusive relationships.

I just started this book last night so I don’t have a review for it yet.

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

This book definitely had me hooked but I personally feel it is a bit overhyped. I’ve heard a lot of people on social media claim this to be their favorite book of all time and I don’t understand how, and TBH find that a bit concerning (keep in mind romance is not my favorite although it feels a bit twisted to call this true romance). It felt like this was written by a teenager that often times romanticized abuse. Parts of the book felt like the characters were extremely immature for their age and impulsive. I really hated that the characters virtue signaled at times, it felt really cringey. Trigger warnings for this book include domestic violence, abusive relationships, attempted rape, and death (adult and child).

This is one of the books I have not read yet so I don’t have a review.

The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary

I really loved this book. In fact, it might be my favorite romance. The premise was different from any other romance I have read. I really loved the characters in it. The main characters are the type of characters that are admirable and you would want to be friends with in real life. There were also so many wholesome and heartwarming moments in it. Trigger warnings include abuse (including stalking). The trigger warning is applicable to a character that is working through it in a really healthy manner though and overall a lighthearted book.
