Happy spring! Depending on where you live, I feel like I should congratulate you on making it through another winter. We’ve already had our first 90 degree day in Austin, so my sites are set on spring break and beach reads.
I feel like my to-read list is all over the genre map this season, which I’m actually looking forward to since I’ve been in a reading rut so far this year.
What are you most looking forward to reading this spring?

Modern Lovers by Emma Straub (May 31, 2016) — From the New York Times‒bestselling author of The Vacationers, a smart, highly entertaining novel about a tight-knit group of friends from college—their own kids now going to college—and what it means to finally grow up well after adulthood has set in.
SweetBitter by Stephanie Danler (May 24, 2016) — A year in the life of a uniquely beguiling young woman, set in the wild, alluring world of a famous downtown New York restaurant. I expect this novel to take itself way too seriously and I cannot wait.
