The Reading Eagles

TPCA Media Class… Grow In Grace


summer reading list

The Selection, Devastation, Harry Potter, Oh My!

Although my summer is filled with swimming, playing outside, and boating, I still enjoy pulling out a book and reading. My bookshelf is currently very full, and most of it is books that have not been read yet. So my goal this summer is to read as many books in my to be read pile as possible. I have no particular number in mind, but I do have particular books in mind. Here are some of the books that I would like to read this summer:


The Selection1. The Selection, by Kiera Cass-  I have been told to read this book and the series numerous times and I finally have put it on my list of books to read. All of the people who recommended this to me enjoyed the whole series, so maybe I will also read the other books in this series this summer. It sounds very interesting and not something that I would usually read.

2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, by J.K. Rowling- I have already read the first 5 books in the Harry Potter series, I am currently reading the 6th, but I cannot wait to read the final book! All of these books are riveting, mysterious, and adventurous; I rarely ever get bored. I completely recommend this series to almost everyone.

9fd12-thentherewerenone3. And Then There Were None, by Agatha Christie- All that I have heard about this book is “Wow!” One of my favorite genres is mystery and I think I will be pleased by the excitement and mystery of this novel.

4. The Lions Of Little Rock, by Kristin Levine- I have seen many people reading this book and it seems very interesting. My classmates and everyone that I have talked to about this book have told me to read it and that they enjoyed it very much.

devastation5. Devastation, by Gloria Skurzynski- I bought this at my school’s book fair because the synopsis intrigued me. It seems like a fast pace post apocalyptic novel that authors seem to be writing about a lot, but it seems interesting. I haven’t heard of anybody reading this yet, so I am going to give it a try.

I hope that this helped give you inspiration on what to read this summer. I want to read exciting books this summer that are page turners and do not leave me bored out of my mind. I will probably read other books that are not on this list, but this is a general list of books that I hope to accomplish. Happy Reading!

A Summer Reading List for an Eager Reader

Summer is almost here, which means its time to start summer reading! As an avid reader, I want to read as many books as possible this summer, but there is one question still unanswered. What books do I plan to read this summer? After thinking hard and doing research, I came up with the list below. This lineup shows some of the books that I really want to read this summer.

1.Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien

I have read The Hobbit and am currently reading The Fellowship of The Ring, which you should probably read before reading this book. Being a person who finishes what he starts, I plan to read this and put it at the top of my list.

2.Mrs. Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

I once saw this book at my library, and it looked intriguing. I hope to find it again.

3.Wings of Fire: Moon Rising by Tui T. Sutherland

This series is awesome!! The dragons are the main characters, and there are prophecies and wars. There are different dragon tribes, each with their own special look and abilities. When I heard there was a continuation of the series after number five, I desperately wanted it.

4.Infernal Devices by Philip Reeve

When I picked up the first book of this series, I couldn’t put it down. Its set in a world where all of the countries have blown each other up, and cities have to be on wheels to keep from the inhabitable earth. So far I have read two out of this series of four.

5.Five Complete Hercule Poirot Novels each by Agatha Christe

I borrowed this book from Mrs.Herr, and have only read about half of the first novel. So far, it has been very interesting. I hope to read all 5.

6.Cabinet of Wonders by Marie Rokaski

My classmates and I were all given a book donate by the governor’s wife, Mrs.Pence. I have been saving this book for when I read all the books I get at the library, because I have them for a limited time. It’s about magic and machines.



All I Want for Christmas… Never Mind. It’s Summer!

lost planetI desperately desire to read books that I  want to read, rather than what is assigned, and this summer I finally get to do that!  Here are some of the books I want to read in order from 1st choice to last choice:

  • I want to finish The Lost Planet by Rachel Searles (which I am currently in) due to the fact that it is just overall awesome and filled with adventure. It includes explosions, getting lost in the middle of space,  high-tech blasters, and the main character trying to remember and figure out who he is. I talk about it so much that my friend Jackson would probably tell me to stop talking about it.
  • After The Lost Planet, I’d like to read the sequel,  The Stolen Moon, because Rachel Searless is just a great author and  I want to see how Chase turns out in the second one. Another reason I want to read it is because my favorite book genre is science-fiction.
  • Thirdly, I’d want to read The Cabinet of Wonders and the rest of the The Kronos Chronicles by Marie Rutkoski. it sounds very interesting and action filled. Come on, it’s pretty incredible that the main character’s father can move metal with his mind.
  • Next, I want to read The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling for  three reasons: I love action in novels, all my friends who have good taste in books are recommending it very highly, and I have seen some of the movies which are really, really incredible. Also the books are better than the movies, always.
  • I desire reading the rest of The Hatchet Series by Gary Paulsen because I read the first one in this school year and I was absolutely in love with it and the author’s voice. Another friend of mine, Nathan, read the series and he liked it.
  • Then I want to reathe westing gamed And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie and The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin because I absolutely LOVE stories with action (If you hadn’t noticed). I forgot to mention, I also love finding out who the killer is.
  • I desire reading The Alex Rider Series by Anthony Horowitz so much. Mrs.Herr has got me wanting to read another book again!  It is about a kid-spy who goes on lethal missions to save the world. There is so much action I think I might pass out!
  • I mysterious benedictreally want to read The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart.  I’ve read two reviews for it on our site and I am very intrigued.
  • I’m dying to read the rest of  A Wrinkle in Time Series by Madeline L’Engle. I read the first one in Fourth Grade as an assignment, but it quickly became an enjoyable activity for me. Last year, after summer break, I found out that it was a series and I was really bummed, but I can read it this summer if I have the time.
  • I hope I can squeeze in Inkheart by Cornelia Funke into the summer because one of my future teachers highly recommends it. Also I think it is ingenious to write books about adventures with books.
  • If there was time left a the end of the summer, I am so going to read The Underland Series by Suzanne Collins. I’ve been reading reviews of it on this site and it seems excellent due to all the action.

Almost no classics!  I’m going rogue!  Yay!  Sadly, I know I can’t read them all.  I wish summer was longer than a couple of months for reading purposes and other reasons.  But I’ll do the best I can.
