10 Summer Reading Recommendations

summer reading recommendations

Lazy summer days are a beautiful thing…. and they go by much too quickly.

It’s easy to lose a few hours in what seems like a blink of the eye when you’re on the computer. During the school year, there are many days when you’re tied to technology through an online class or writing a paper. Summer is the perfect time and reason to step away from the computer to better use and enjoy your free-time.

Relaxing at the beach or somewhere outside in the shade with a great book in hand seems like a much better use of the precious summer days. The problem is that many of us get stuck in the rut of required reading during the school year, in which teachers decide what we read and discuss in class. If it’s been awhile since you chose a book to read for pleasure, then my summer reading recommendations may help you get started:

If you like action/adventure:  The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

If you like mysteries:  I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga

If you like emotional/dramas:  The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

If you like history:  The Help by Kathrynn Stockett

If you like coming-of-age:  The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

If you like overcoming obstacles:  The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen
