I don’t know about you but where I live, spring doesn’t look very springlike yet. I’m hopeful that the change will happen soon, mostly because I’m tired of wearing my winter coat and I’d like to put my boots away for the season. But despite my eagerness for winter to end, spring isn’t my favourite season. Not because I don’t appreciate the slight warmup or the change in wardrobe, but because it’s such a short-lived season that feels like it only exists to give fashion magazines the excuse to push floral dresses. Spring is also the time of year when the city streets look particularly filthy, thanks to several months-worth of dirt accumulation. Not to mention that classic spring smell of unearthed dog poop. So basically what I’m trying to say is that I’m looking forward to spring being over because that means summer can finally begin.
While I wait for those hot & humid days, these are some of the books I’ll be reading.
