At the beginning of the year, summer seemed galaxies away, but now summer is right around the corner. I can’t wait to be able to read for hours during the summer, but I have to have enough books to get me through summer. Whenever I finish a book, it takes me a few days before I can decide what to read next, so I came up with a summer reading list. That way I can jump into a new book after I finish one. Here the stories I plan on reading over my summer break:
The Selection series, by Kiera Cass
I have read this series once and I’m dying to read it again. I enjoy reading books based in the future. My attention was captivated by the series after I finished the first book, The Selection. The Heir, the fourth book in the series, just came out I am itching to get my hands on it. I can’t wait to dive into these futuristic and thrilling novels again.
The Harry Potter series, by J. K. Rowling
The Harry Potter series is one of my all time favorite books. I could never put it down because there was so much action. I loved the humor that the author threw in and her cleverness. She mentioned insignificant details about the characters in the first book that become a character’s “weapon”. J. K. Rowling formed strong friendships between Harry and his friend that slowly becomes his strength. I adored The Harry Potter series and I can’t wait to have those books back in my hand.
Devastation, by Gloria Skurzynski
I bought this book at my school book fair and after reading about it, I became very interested in it. It takes place in the future and the human race is decreasing. It sounds sort of like The Maze Runner, by James Dashner and I loved it. I thought I would give a go at this futuristic, action packed, and adventurous novel.
The Death Cure, by James Dashner
I’m so excited to read this novel because I loved the other books in this series. James Dashner is very good at making the book suspenseful. At the end of almost every chapter, there is a big event that makes sure that you can’t put it down. I enjoy that when you read James Dashner’s books, you feel like you are on the mission with the characters. I am looking forward to sitting back and being transported to where Thomas, the main character,will be.
Fairest, by Marissa Meyer
This book is part of another popular series called The Lunar Chronicles. The series intrigued me so much that I’m so ready to begin to read Fairest. It is about the antagonist of the series. The villan’s past has been in my mind as I read the first book. The suspense of not knowing how the Evil Queen became the way she is has been nagging at me. This story has my name written all over it. I’m so ready to begin reading.
Between Shades of Grey, by Ruta Sepetys
A lot of my friends have read this novel and I want to give it a try. I love that it is based during WWII, so it has already caught my attention. I love WWII, so am eager to learn about another person’s struggles during the brutal war. Hopefully, I will love this story and want to read it again and again throughout my life.
The Only Thing to Fear, by Caroline Tung Richmond
This story first caught my attention when my friend started it. She said it is about World War II and it is a what- if novel. The book is based around the idea that Adolf Hitler one WWII. The book sounds like it will have lots of scary events that would happen if Hitler one. I do think it will be hard to put down because I have no idea what would happen if Hitler one the bloody war. I will have lots of time to enjoy this book over the summer.
Inkheart, by Cornelia Funke
My teacher read me a review of this novel and it sounded very interesting. I don’t know much of what it will be about, so I’m excited to dig into it.
