5 Books to Cozy Up with this Spring
This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com. All opinions are my own!
Spring time is here and I seriously could not be happier to see the sun shining down a little more in Utah. Even though we’ve had a few beautiful days of 50 & 60 degree weather, we’ve also had a LOT of rain (which is a little unusual for living in our desert state!) I’m not complaining, though. One of my favorite things to do on a rainy spring day is to curl up with a mug of tea, snuggle my doodle and read away the afternoon. I’ve got a huge list of books I want to read that I’m slowly chipping away at and today, I’m teaming up with BabbleBoxx & Harlequin Books to share 5 books for women to add to your to-read list this spring!
These books all feature strong female characters and have themes of empowerment, self-discovery, confidence, and sisterhood. Basically, it’s the perfect group of books that are easy and fast reads, but have characters and stories that stay with you forever. AKA – the perfect spring read!
