Jessica Richardson Blog

With Alexandria Public Schools going on Spring Break March 26-30, it’s time to start planning what books to pack for the plane or car ride and, hopefully, to enjoy by the beach.  Below are some favorites I’ve been seeing on social media and popular in book clubs.


Spring Break book picks

1. All the Light We Cannot See

This novel by Anthony Doerr rose in popularity a few years ago, but is a must-read this spring break if you haven’t yet had the chance to dive into it.

If you’ve ever read anything by Liane Moriarty, the author of The Husband’s Secret, Big Little Lies, or What Alice Forgot, you know that her books are the kind where you just can’t put them down.
