This is your seasonal reminder to READ A BOOK. Sorry, I don’t mean to yell. The all-caps are as much for me as they are for you. With Peak TV season being all-year round, blockbuster movies coming in hot every weekend, and an inevitable backlog of podcast recommendations to listen to, there are plenty of forms of entertainment to distract us from all the captivating books that are already making 2019 a great year in literature.
From thrilling debut novels to necessary non-fiction, these are the books that will make you want to sit on a park bench on a warm spring day (those are coming, right?) and read all afternoon like you’re a protagonist in a rom-com. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered on the literary romance front, too. It is spring after all.
Here are my picks for the must-read books of the season.
