Summer seems to always put me in the mood to reread books. Last summer I once again started the Harry Potter books and made it through the first four, so I probably be picking that series back up at book five this summer. And I’ve reread Jandy Nelson’s THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE pretty much every summer since I first read it.
As for new books, I’ve got a few series I’m looking to finish. There’s THE CROWN by Kiera Cass, the final book in the Selection series (which I’ve thoroughly enjoyed despite not being a fan of The Bachelor TV series and its spin-offs), and THE RAVEN KING, the last book in Maggie Stiefvater’s Raven Boys series. Other than that I think I’m in the mood for some lighter reads, but I’m not sure what yet. Knowing me, I’ll go the complete opposite and end up with a non-fiction physics book.
If you’re looking for some kidlit recs, the SCBWI put together a Summer Reading List (which just so happens to include my YA fantasy ELIXIR BOUND). You can download the whole thing or do it by region. Lin Oliver, Executive Director of the SCBWI, put together this cute video about it.
What’s on your summer reading list? Do you have any fun recs for me?
