I don’t know about you, but for me, school is finally over! This means that I have an entire summer ahead of me to write, hang out with friends, swim, and -of course- sleep in. But out of all the fun and exciting summer activities, I always seem to spend the majority of the summer reading, which is something I absolutely LOVE to do!
I’m the kind of person who never knows what books to read, and I think that’s because I get overwhelmed by all the good books out there and I don’t know where to begin. If you’re planning on reading a lot this summer and you also never know what books to start with- or you just want some new books to read- then I think you may be interested in my summer book list.
About a month ago, I made this summer reading list with almost fifty books. Now, you may be wondering, “Why did she create a summer book list in April?” Well, I had planned to start the list once school got out, but, being me, I couldn’t help myself and went ahead and started with the first book on my list.
This book list is full of different genres, but I read in a big variety, so this is the kind of stuff I like. And all the books aren’t for the same age group. Some are for teenagers, but some are for kids, too. (I’ve actually already read a bunch of these, but I thought it would be fun to reread them).
Anyway, I hope you enjoy reading these books over the summer!
