Spring Reads

Whether you are searching for books for the Bank Holiday weekend or just keen to celebrate lighter evenings and budding flowers here are the best books to read for a sense of Spring:

The Wind in the Willows
Kenneth Grahame’s well-loved classic is perfect for a spring time adventure in nature.

A Room With a View
Spring in Italy, young love, growing up and gaining independence. What could be more perfect for Spring?

The Beginning of Spring

Set in Russia on the eve of the revolution this book is an apt choice as this year marks the 100th Anniversary of Revolution. A story set in the spring-time capturing the huge change being sparked across the whole nation.

Middlemarch 

This book has nothing to do with the month of March and isn’t even set in the spring – it covers a wide time-frame. However Dorethea’s hopes and dreams carry the vitality and optimism of spring while the community is on the brink of change. The perfect long read for a long weekend.

The Secret Garden

The ultimate tale of innocence and growing up, showing the power of nature, and the importance of friendship.
