For day 3 of my 30 day blogging challenge, I was asked to write about by favorite books, but since I’ve talked endlessly about my love for To Kill a Mockingbird, I thought it would be more interesting to compile a list of books that I believe would make for the perfect summer reading.
When I was younger, my mom would take me to the library in the summer and let me pick out as many books as I wanted to take home and read. I always challenged myself by reading books that were far ahead of my maturity, which is funny because now I love reading young adult books. Through the years, I have been an avid reader, and besides being a writer, also am in love with books. I love to hold them and stack them high around our house. I love to discuss books, recommend books to others and find new books from the recommendations of my friends. Above all else, I love finding a book that, for whatever reason, I absolutely cannot put down. It is the surest delight!
For my list, I’ve decided to pick not necessarily my favorite books, but books that kept me thinking and wanting more. The books on this list are the ones I have been unable to put down and I am sure would make for a perfect summer of reading. I’ve linked each cover to their Amazon page in case you want to buy them or find out more information. Enjoy and please leave me suggestions for a great read…I”m always looking for a new book I’ve never heard of before!
The Best Summer Reading List
Just Great Books
I’m sure there are many books that I’m forgetting and have left off, but these alone would make for an amazing summer read! Please leave me comments about what books you were unable to put down! This summer I’m specifically looking for scary books that will make me hear things go bump in the night while I’m reading on my front porch!
Also, for the month of July, I will be continuing my daily blogging challenge, but will be responding to questions left by my readers, so please leave me a question below that you’d like me to answer in July for a blog post!
And stay tuned for the release of my book The Before Now and After Then July 29th 2014! Add my book to your Goodreads to-read shelf and go there to find out more and visit my author page! Thanks!
