by Carolyn Meyer
Its always summer in ancient Egypt, and after reading this you’ll be extra glad for modern amenities like air conditioning and refrigeration. Theres plenty of love, intrigue, and murder in this great historical book.
The Count of Monte Cristo
By Alexander Dumas
Summer may be the only time of year that you’ll have time to read Dumas’ epic. It might be less popular than The Three Musketeers, but it’s definitely worth the read if revenge, adventure, and sea-faring are things you find interesting.
by Gisela Tobien Sherman
This is a book that I was sent to review a while back and I honestly love it so much!! It’s set during WWII, about a bunch of (mostly city-dwelling) girls who went to work on farms in Canada to provide meals for the troops. The entire book spans one summer at a farm in Canada, and captures the hope and heartbreak of the time.
Hearts that Survive
by Yvonne Lehman
A Christian lit book about the Titanic. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting the author and I can say she’s absolutely amazing, and her book is very well-written and truly tragic.
Salt to the Sea
by Ruta Sepetys
For a book about a tragic shipwreck, Salt to the Sea is also a beautifully written story about the power of hope and love.
by Kiera Cass
I haven’t read The Siren yet, but I’ve read enough of Kiera Cass’ other works to say I’m sure this one is just as good! This one includes a siren and the personification of the ocean.
