Summer Reading

It’s officially the end of summer for me. School starts next week, the library is looking ready to go, and first week lessons are planned. I’m wondering what I’ll wear on the first day of school and hoping that I’ll make a new friend or two. (See, some things never change!)

My summer reading focused on classics — Hemingway, Faulkner and Tennessee Williams topped the list. I enjoyed rereading Gone With the Wind and pairing that with The Help by Kathryn Stockett. The last few weeks I have been drawn to thrillers and can highly recommend Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, Tigers in Red Weather by Liz Klaussmann, and Broken Harbour by Tana French. I was also intrigued by Once Upon a River by Bonnie Jo Campbell. This multilayered, coming-of-age, adventure story kept me riveted.

Now its back to reading children’s literature. This fall has some wonderful offerings, including the long-awaited conclusion to Lois Lowry’s The Giver titled simply Son. It will be available in early October. Don’t miss it!
