Summer Reading Book Recommendations

Summer Reading Book Recommendations

The Fury by Alex Michaelides

This is the perfect summer blockbuster in book form! Set on a Greek island, this summery book will keep you on edge as you are led through the events that led up to a super starlet’s murder on her private island. After reading this book, you will want to take a vacation to a private island in Greece, too (without the murder, of course).

The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

The first book in the trilogy introduces us to the main character Belly, who has spent her summers with her brother and their family friends at a beach house. This summer, though, everything is different. This fun summer teen romance is the perfect beach read, and you will become attached to the families and their stories. Belly is a mostly realistic teenage girl who wants to spend her summer having fun! Who can blame her? After you read the book, try watching the show on Amazon Prime! The music fits in with the vibe of the book.

The Final Girl Support Group

This horror novel discusses some more adult themes, so just be aware before you dive in! Once you start reading, you will be stunned by the girls who have inspired the “slasher” genre. These ladies are resilient and full of spunk. The book follows the main character, Lynette, as she tracks down who has been targeting the “final girls.” This book is truly one you will not be able to put down because of how captivating and intriguing it is.

Circe by Madeline Miller

In this retelling of the classic Odyssey, readers hear from the perspective of Circe, who is very different in this light and portrayal of her. We learn about her life before Odysseus encountered her island, how she learned to practice magic, and her understanding of humanity. This moving narrative explores Circe’s experiences with immortality, mortality, and what it means to love.
