Time seems to be flying and we’re again finding ourselves at the end of another season. I can’t believe this is already the fourth Stars of the Season post I’m writing… That means my blog is almost a year old! It’s still a bit surreal for me. In a good way, of course.
So, summer’s on its toes and can’t wait for heating us to the point of boiling, and sweet, breezy spring has come to an end. (
Yes, you guessed right, spring is my favorite season.) These last three months has been quite successful for me in the reading department, and I can’t wait to share you which books I loved the most!
As before, a book appearing here means that I rated it 4.5 stars or higher.

‘A Flight of Broken Wings’ by Nupur Chowdhury
This book is a brilliant cross between fantasy and thriller, with a touch of Indian culture and a vibe of science fiction. I loved it to bits!
It’s safe for fantasy & mystery/thriller lovers, yet it’s a bit something else.

‘The Saxon Wolves’ by Penny Ingham
A historical fiction book that had me hooked from the beginning! It’s set in the chaotic post-Roman times, and creates a wonderful atmosphere of those ages. I loved it so much, that I couldn’t resist buying the sequel instantly, so I could continue to follow the protagonist, Anya along her journey!

‘The Saxon Plague’ by Penny Ingham
Aaaand here’s the sequel I was just talking about! It lived up to my expectations and I’m so glad that I decided to read it immediately after I finished ‘The Saxon Wolves’. It was totally worth it!

‘Burden of Truth’ by Kristin Ward
This book is the sequel to the book that you’ve probably heard about because of the very first Ultimate Blog Tour! Many of you have already read ‘After the Green Withered’, and I know some have already proceeded to the second volume, but not nearly as much.
So… If you haven’t already… do! It’s great, and according to my numeral rating, even better than the first book! 😀 (Though that one is only behind a little… it almost made this list, too, only missing by a quarter of a point!)
What’s more, the author is very active on social media, and she’s a delight to talk to! 😉

‘The Mother-in-Law’ by Sally Hepworth
A good mystery, too, but what made this book stand out to me was how good Diana, the mother-in-law in question was portrayed, and how beautifully the relationships between characters and the little things that make or break them were illustrated.

‘The Magic Touch’ by Kelly Florentia
A very sweet and funny book that positively surprised me! It’s light and fun, but also has depth. The story’s also got way more to it than it first meets the eye. And I loved the characters! What more does a reader need?

‘Little Darlings’ by Melanie Golding
This one was definitely a hit with book bloggers! It’s been a while since I’ve read so many reviews of the same book, roughly at the same time! (Except for, of course, the Ultimate Blog Tour.)
To those who still haven’t heard about it: it’s Golding’s the debut novel, and it’s scarily, creepily intriguing! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time! I could never be sure about what was happening. It was great!
My review of the book is HERE!
These are the books that I enjoyed the most since the beginning of this spring. It seems like it’s been ages ago when I read the first couple of books on this list, so many things happened in my life since then! Yet time flies. Anyways… We can say that spring 2019 was great for me regarding books right up my alley. (Though lately I did read a couple that were meh… You probably saw those reviews, too.)
Which books were your favorites during this spring? Do you have any recommendations?
Have a wonderful summer! 😉
