We have been experiencing some weird climate due to the US strong winter winds, and, hopefully, the winds and snow will be gone soon so that we can enjoy some spring days – or dry season days in our case (#PuraVida). Put your winter clothes away and clean your spring clothes because now you will be able to go on trips, to jog around the neighborhood, or simply to walk your poor dog that is dying to be outside!
For these daily routines that are coming, we have multiple titles that can help you spend the time and add that extra spice to our lives! Instead of just walking the park, walk the city. Get immersed in a wild land and fall in love again, or go to the past and experience the struggles of the wild west. The options are out there, and we just need to find the right book for us or other listeners who are dying to discover new adventures!
The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker
Calla Fletcher has lived in Toronto with her mother for almost 26 years. During all this time, she never turned back nor thought about the whereabouts of her father, who was left in the arctic land of Alaska. However, Calla’s dad reached out to let her know that his days are numbered. Calla decides that it is time for her to brave through the lands of the wild Alaska, its high prices, and odd day hours since she does care about her dad.
A pilot flew Calla on his charter plane, and he is sure she will be returning to Toronto really fast, but Calla is set in proving him wrong while coincidentally forming a close bond with him.
Set in the coldness of Toronto and Alaska, The Simple Wild might be the perfect story to learn how to create bonds even during the hardships of winter.
How Much of These Kills is Gold by C. Pam Zhang

Sam and Lucy’s mother died, and, recently, their father did too. It is not until his dead that they have the bravery of escaping their mining land to bury their father, while holding tight to the hopes of reaching a better place and life. A debut novel that mixes incredible storytelling and Chinese symbolism to cover topics such as sibling rivalry, family secrets, and hopes for a better future.
Set in the West with its brutal weather, How Much of This Hills is Gold delivers a story with hopes of finding spring at the end of the desert.
The Futures by Anna Pitoniak
Julia and Evan fall in love as Yale undergraduates. After graduation, and on the eve of the great financial meltdown of 2008, they move together to New York City. Evan lands a job at a hedge fund. But Julia, whose privileged upbringing grants her an easy but wholly unsatisfying job with a nonprofit, feels increasingly shut out of Evan’s secretive world.
Evan becomes involved in a high-stakes deal at work. Meanwhile, Julia reconnects with someone from her past who offers a glimpse of a different kind of live. The economy craters, Evan and Julia spin into their separate orbits, but they each find that they are capable of much more – good and bad – than they’d ever imagined.
Set in New York City, this novel depicts another face about the infamous city. The Futures portraits what it’s like to be young and full of hope in New York City, a place that so often seems determined to break us down – but ultimately may be the very thing that saves us.

Her told her that their son had died suddenly but she refuses to accept this reality.
I just couldn’t write this in a better way. A mother’s trip to find the truth about the faith of her son. A trip to discover wonderful lies or terrible truths. Pival is brave, and I am not sure if I want to find out what happened with Rahi.
