[edgtf_dropcaps type=”normal” color=”#d6a67c” background_color=””]T[/edgtf_dropcaps]The 2021 Spring Reading List is here, and I’m super excited for it to be out in the world!  Spring is both a transitional season and a time for new beginnings, and it’s the perfect time to refresh and renew your reading life.

The Spring Reading List has twenty-six new releases, organized across six categories, so you can head straight to your favorite section if you prefer.  Because we’re all about lifestyle here, you’ll also find some fun things to do at home this season, along with some recipes.

The BiblioLifestyle 2021 Spring Reading Guide

In the guide, we have dedicated one category to the “minimalist reader.”  Our Minimalist Reads list has six titles that we highly recommend if you’re only planning to pick up a few reads this Spring!  

It’s super hard narrowing an initial list of hundreds of books down to a third of the size and then narrowing them down to our top six.  You can expect these reads to be across genres, beautifully written, compelling, thought-provoking, enjoyable, and great for discussions.
