Favorite Quote: “How was it possible that her body should react so violently to someone she found so difficult?”
It’s officially spring! Even though it doesn’t quite feel like spring here yet, I thought I’d try to get myself into the mood by finding book covers that make me think of spring. I searched through my books to find the covers that most reminded me of spring because I thought that, by making this post the first of what I hope to be many to come, I could find some sort of blogging inspiration.
