Summer is really here! This last weekend was the hottest it’s been this year and even though cooler weather has returned for a spell it still feels like summer. Going into the season I knew I wanted to tackle one monster of a book (in size not harryness) and get lost within its pages. Typically when I am reading kids books I can breeze through one a week, but for the summer I really wanted to spend some quality time with the characters of some book and get lost in the story for awhile. The book I chose just happens to be Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke. It is a three volume book and just monstrous enough to suit my taste.
Here’s the thing: I’m already on volume three and halfway through at that! So, today I started to create a towering list of fantastic books all reserved for me at the library! After doing some internet searching to see what books are all the rage right now I realized that I am curious to hear what everyone else is reading this summer. What is your summer reading list? What have you read or are reading or want to read? I’d love to hear!
Here are a few of the other books on my list of books to read before the summer draws to a close:
The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet by Reif Larsen
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork
Peak by Roland Smith
The Van Gogh Cafe by Cynthia Rylant
Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz
