It’s summertime, and you know what that means: BOOKS! Summer is a reader’s paradise. During the school year, normally a student who loves to read would say, “So many books, so little time!” That’s the great thing about summer, you’ll find yourself saying, “So many books, so much time!” I can just feel the clouds beginning to smile down at the earth, deeming it the beginning of an amazing summer. I just had to get my reading list kicked off for 2015. Here it is:
- The Selection Series I’ve heard such great praise for Kira Cass’ Selection, that I just have to get my hands on this series. I’ve read a few other novels that are futuristic, and I really enjoyed them. This piece of writing is perfect for my book cravings.
- The Maze Runner Again, I’ve heard only praise for The Maze Runner, by James Dashner. I’ve heard that the action is thrilling and incredible, and I’m a reader that thirsts for writing such as that.
- Ungifted I personally love realistic fiction, so Gordon Korman’s Ungifted would fit my taste beautifully. Also, I’ve read this author’s writing before, and it was exceptional. I previewed this novel a while back, and to be honest, it had me completely hooked. It’s time I finish it!
- Between Shades of Gray I really enjoy historical fiction, and a novel as deep as Between Shades of Gray, by Ruta Sepetys’,would be an amazing read. Plus, it takes place during World War II, and that’s a time in history that really fascinates me. I’ve always heard about how rich and passionate this writing is, and I really should check it out!
- The Boy in the Striped Pajamas Again, this novel takes place during World War II. I’ve been wanting to read The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, by John Boyne, for a long time, but, like every busy student, I couldn’t get around to it. As I said before, I’m deeply interested in World War II, and I’d love to learn more about that time period.
- The Lunar Chronicles To be honest, I haven’t the slightest idea what this series could possibly be about. But every time I ask anyone for ideas of what to read, Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles come up. Many girls my age enjoyed it, so I’ll definitely be blowing through these books over my relaxing summer!
Happy summer everyone!
