Summer Reading Suggestions


Rumney Flats Blog, Revere, MA  Reading. It does a body good (according to studies) so read a good book this summer. Today we have suggested titles for summer reading fun!


Welcome back to the Rumney Flats Blog. Last year we shared a post about starting a book club, and today we want to follow up with a post about books to read this summer — which is quickly approaching here in Revere, MA. We’ve got several recommendations, so all you have to do is create a comfy place in your apartment to settle in and read!


Summers at Castle Auburn by Sharon Shinn

“This is one of my new favorite young adult (or young at heart) books. I love the heroine of the story -- so much better than an [angst-ridden] Bella (as per Twilight); granted, there is some angst, but how could you have a story about a teenager without some? The story is engaging, and the characters are believable. It is essentially a fairytale, but it has a realistic feel to it that I like, including the [self-realizations] that come about by the end of the book. Overall, a good read.” (A Goodreads Review)


One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

One Hundred Years of Solitude tells the story of the rise and fall, birth and death of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendia family. Inventive, amusing, magnetic, sad, and alive with unforgettable men and women—brimming with truth, compassion, and a lyrical magic that strikes the soul—this novel is a masterpiece in the art of fiction.”


And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

Ten strangers arrive on an island expecting a summer holiday. None leave. And Then There Were None is a gripping mystery and Agatha Christie’s masterpiece. The question of “whodunnit” will have you sitting on the edge of your seat until the final pages of the book.


Head on over to your favorite bookstore, the Revere Public Library, or online to grab a book to lose yourself in this summer! What are your suggestions for books to read? Please share in the comments.
