Unputdownable Books to Read This Spring

When 2017 began, a lot of us made reading goals for the year, the most common being the 50-book challenge. At BookClubbish, all year we’re hosting Resolution Reads—download the checklist and let us know how you’re doing on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram by using the hashtag #ResolutionReads.

With New Year’s far behind us and the warmer weather a distraction, it has been easy to get behind on our reading goals. If you need a bit of a boost in your reading, here are 7 unputdownable books to read this month.

Science Fiction

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

“Are you happy with your life?”

Those are the last words Jason hears before he is knocked unconscious. When he awakes, his life is not the life he knows.

Eve, a former spy in the Alice Network during World War I, and Charlie, an unmarried and pregnant socialite, are brought together in 1947 to find the truth about Charlie’s missing cousin.

Women’s Fiction

Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid
