The 2022 Spring Reading Guide Minimalist Reads List

The second annual BiblioLifestyle Spring Reading Guide is finally here, and I’m super excited for it to be out in the reading world!  Especially because Spring is a time for new beginnings, and it’s the perfect time to refresh and renew your reading life and discover lots of good books.

About The Spring Reading Guide

The Spring Reading Guide has a total of twenty-four new releases organized across six categories.  There is also one extra category dedicated to the minimalist reader.  The Minimalist Reads List is for those readers who are only planning to pick up a few books this season.  Because we’re all about lifestyle here, you’ll also find fun things to do at home this season, along with spring-themed recipes.  In addition, I’ve also included some tips to help you improve your reading life.

Spring Reading Guide Minimalist Reading

In the Spring Reading 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.
