Since I was a child I love to read and so does my family. I love how I can find a corner and start reading and get so lost in the story I forget dinner should have been cooking hours ago. Give the gift of reading to your children. There are so many adventures they can go in so many books.

“So please, oh please, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install a lovely bookshelf on the wall.” – Roald Dahl

Let me share with you some wonderful books from all kinds of writers that you and your family can read this summer.

Some are new releases some are years old so I hope you enjoy my list of The Best Books To Read This Summer.

 

 

WISHTREE By Katherine Applegate

The New York Times-bestselling story of kindness, friendship, and hope. Trees can’t tell jokes, but they can certainly tell stories. . . .

NEW KID By Jerry Craft

 

Going to school and making new friends can be tough. But going to school and making new friends while wearing a bulky hearing aid strapped to your chest? That requires superpowers!

In this funny, poignant graphic novel memoir, author/illustrator Cece Bell chronicles her hearing loss at a young age and her subsequent experiences with the Phonic Ear, a very powerful—and very awkward—hearing aid.

A Piece Of The World By Christina Baker Kline

To Christina Olson, the entire world is her family farm in the small coastal town of Cushing, Maine. The only daughter in a family of sons, Christina is tied to her home by health and circumstance, and seems destined for a small life.

Instead, she becomes Andrew Wyeth’s first great inspiration, and the subject of one of the best-known paintings of the twentieth century, Christina’s World.

The Girl In The Well Is Me By Karen Rivers

Sixth-grader Kammie Summers’s plan to be one of the popular girls at school hasn’t gone the way she hoped. She’s fallen into a well during a (fake) initiation into the Girls’ club. Now she’s trapped in the dark, counting the hours, hoping to be rescued. (The Girls have gone for help, haven’t they?)

Moving, suspenseful, and impossible to put down.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review.

You Have Lipstick On Your Teeth By Leslie Marinelli

Thank God for girlfriends and shared visits to powder rooms! Original short stories from some of the wittiest women writers—stories they would only tell their closest friends, most likely from within the haven of a ladies’ room. Inside you’ll find 39 (mostly) true tales by women, for women, about being women—bodily changes, relationships, careers, motherhood, aging, illness, and more—written with the humor and grit that proudly sets In The Powder Room apart.

The Rosie Project By Graeme Simsion

The international bestselling romantic comedy “bursting with warmth, emotional depth, and…humor,” (Entertainment Weekly) featuring the oddly charming, socially challenged genetics professor, Don, as he seeks true love.

The art of love is never a science: Meet Don Tillman, a brilliant yet socially inept professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a wife. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs the Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a sixteen-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers.

Tuck Everlasting By Natalie Babbitt.

 

Is eternal life a blessing or a curse? That is what young Winnie Foster must decide when she discovers a spring on her family’s property whose waters grant immortality. Members of the Tuck family, having drunk from the spring, tell Winnie of their experiences watching life go by and never growing older.

But then Winnie must decide whether or not to keep the Tucks’ secret—and whether or not to join them on their never-ending journey.
