Welcome to the Weekend Book Buzz, and happy spring! I know many of my friends on the other side of the world are celebrating the arrival of fall/autumn, but I’m celebrating the arrival of spring. (You may have guessed that I’m not a cold-weather girl!) We’re still waiting for the weather to catch up to the calendar (especially in the morning!) but it won’t be long now.
How about you? Are you excited about the change of season? Why or why not?
