BW12: Happy Spring!

Josephine Wall's Hope Springs Eternal


The year’s at the spring
And day’s at the morn;
Morning’s at seven;
The hillside’s dew-pearled;
The lark’s on the wing;
The snail’s on the thorn;
God’s in His heaven -
All’s right with the world!

~Robert Browning

Happy Spring! In keeping with our mystery theme this month, I looked up books with spring in the title and found several interesting mystery titles. 


 How about something hard boiled


Poodle Springs by Raymond Chandler


Or a bit British


G.M. Malleit's Pagan Spring


Maybe a psychological thrill

Clifford Irving's The Spring

Or gut wrenching suspense

Rick Riordan's Cold Springs

or a step back in time 

Charles O'Brien's Death in Saratoga Springs


Find something with Spring in the title to read this season. And no, you don't have to stick with mysteries.  *grin*

  1. Although it does not have Spring in the title, Victoria Hislop's collection of short stories 'The Last Dance' did bring a much needed dose of spring sunshine to our very un-springlike Northern Ireland weather! Lovely, gentle, evocative tales of everyday life in Greece, very enjoyable.
