Six Books You Need To Read This Spring

I live ravenously and sometimes – when I look outwardly for self-fulfillment in travel or new and exciting experiences – a little haphazardly. The one activity that never fails to ground me and nourishes me internally is reading. During Winter, I took a mental vacation with a little help from fiction reads. I devoured everything from detective novels (shoutout to Faja for giving me “Two Kinds of Truth” by Michael Connelly) to dystopian tomes and finally discovered what all the buzz behind “The Handmaid’s Tale” is about.

Now that Spring has sprung, I am ready to get back to business in the realm of non-fiction so I knocked on Diana’s door after a three month hiatus to revive the Crossing Borders Book Club. Our approach this quarter is more casual: there is no commitment to ready any of the books in any timeframe or order nor is there any plan to meet up to talk about them. We simply want to share what we are reading with you in case you are in need of some inspiration.

We each contributed three books for a total of six books you need to read this Spring. I have grouped them based on who recommended them so you can reach out to us individually if you want to share your thoughts or chat about a specific book. I’m currently glued to “Trust Me, I’m Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator.” If any of you read it, I’m dying to talk through it.
