Spring is an uncertain time of year here in Ontario as I’m sure it is in many other places, too.
The wildly shifting weather usually starts in late February or early March. That is to say, one day might be relatively warm and sunny for that time of year, but the next one could coat our corner of the world in another thick layer of snow and ice.
Once the weather warms up enough in May that we probably won’t see snow again, thunderstorms are still a risk. They can be violent, heavy, and not always easy for our meteorologists to predict in advance.
That is to say, always pack an umbrella and don’t trust those bright blue skies too much at this time of the year!
How does this affect my reading habits, you might be wondering? Well, it is not a good idea to plan any outdoor activities more than a few hours in advance in the spring here. You might have a beautifully mild day that beckons everyone outside to enjoy it, or you might have a sudden storm that makes reading indoors a much safer and more appealing option.
I’m glad to have so many books to look forward to this spring. Along with seeing what the Toronto Public Library has available in their New Books section, the weather will also affect how quickly I read these books.
I’d love to hear about what spring is like in your part of the world and how it affects your reading habits when you comment!

I might add Buried onto my audiobook list, I thought Tamed was fascinating and I do trot out facts from it now and then! I’m definitely intrigued by The Kaiju Preservation Society.
I hope you like them!
I think we have quite similar weather, especially about taking umbrellas with you! Hope you enjoy your books!
The Bone orchard looks good
Spring is often much the same here. Unpredictable 🙂
I love the look of Kaiju, I kind of want to get that one.
Cool! I hope you like that book.
All of these have such eye-catching covers! The Trayvon Generation looks really intriguing and I’m also very curious about The Bone Orchard. I hope you enjoy all of these reads, Lydia 🙂
Thank you. I hope you like those two books (if you read them) as well.
The Bone Orchid sounds interesting. I hope you enjoy it and the others.
I love your variety. The Bone Orchard sounds really good though.
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
I hope you enjoy all of these!
The Kaiju Preservation Society sounds really intriguing!
I’m glad you think so!
The Bone Orchard looks really interesting. I’ve added it to my TBR. Thanks for putting it on my radar. I hope you enjoy all of these books once you get to them. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
You’re welcome. I hope you like The Bone Orchard.
Yes, Hartman’s book sounds promising. Looking forward to reading your thoughts on it
Thanks for sharing these new titles with me.
I hope you enjoy all of these! Lake Lore looks good!
The Bone Orchard sounds really good!
I hope you will enjoy all of these 🙂
Think I would go for Buried. Sounds interesting!
Lakelore looks really good! Hope you’ll enjoy all of these and good luck with your uncertain spring. (Here in Belgium spring can be very uncertain too, though usually nothing too extreme)
Thank you. I didn’t know spring could be uncertain in Belgium, too!
Great list! I am looking forward to reading Lake Lore and The Bone Orchard as well.
Thank you. I hope you like them!
Good post. I plan to read the Trayvon Generation at some point later this year.
Thanks. I hope you like it!
Seen The Bone Orchard in a few TTT Spring TBR’s and the cover is certainly striking. Hope you like these books when you get to them 🙂
Thank you! Yeah, it’s popped up on a few blogs.
Lakelore sounds very intriguing!
I’m glad you think so!
I hope you enjoy these! And stay safe in the storms.
Thank you! 🙂
The Kaiju Preservation Society really does sound like an interesting concept! I preordered that one, so I’m curious to see what it’s like.

Cool! I hope you like it. I have roughly two weeks until I should reach the top of my library’s waitlist for it.
City of Refugees and Buried both sound fascinating. I don’t read as much nonfiction as I used to. I need to get back into it.
There is a lot of great nonfiction out there! May you enjoy them if you read them.
Hopefully even with the unpredictable changes in weather, you enjoy and get plenty of fun reading time, Lydia! Also… hope you enjoy all you plan to read! 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland. Appreciate this.
Heh, I’m sure I will. And you’re welcome.
I’ve never read anything by John Scalzi. Old Man’s War has been sitting on my shelf for years, so I might try to read that first. But the premise for Kaiju Preservation Society sounds so dang good!
I know, right?
I haven’t read Old Man’s War yet. May you enjoy it.
The Trayvon generation looks really interesting
My copy of Kaiju should be at home waiting for me right now! Can’t wait to get started! Bone Orchard looks really interesting — I’m looking forward to hearing more about it.
Oh, that’s so cool. Enjoy!
I hadn’t heard of The Trayvon Generation. I’ll be adding that to my list.
I hope you like it!
I’m really looking forward to Scalzi’s new book. Thanks for sharing!
You’re welcome. I hope you like it!
I hope you enjoy these books, Lydia! 🙂 I thoroughly enjoyed reading your list. <3
Spring is often muddy and cold, so if I’m not prepping my garden, I like to stay indoors and read. 🙂
That makes total sense. I hope your garden does well this year.
Weather in Southern California has few surprises! Fairly mild year round. In spring though we can experience a great deal of “May Gray” and June Gloom” where our mornings are overcast and cool and the afternoons sunny and warm.
You have a lovely list! Happy spring reading!
Thank you. Your descriptions of spring in Southern California were delightful.
I am so excited to read Lakelore. I haven’t had a chance to pick it up yet, but I just know I’ll love it. Hope we both enjoy!
My fingers are crossed we both will. 🙂
The Trayvon Generation sure looks interesting. I’ll be interested in your thoughts on that book. They all look great, I hope you enjoy them!
Love your list. Since I am not a horror fan, I will most likely skip The Bone Orchard, but both Kaiju Preservation Society and City of Refugees intrigue and interest me.
Thanks for visiting Lydia (as always!)
You’re welcome. I hope you like those two books.
