Shmoop, a publisher of digital curriculum and test prep, announces its 3rd Annual Summer Reading List. The best books to read this summer:
- Lord of the Rings Trilogy – Because, come on, when else will students have the time?
- The Hobbit – December 14, 2012 couldn’t come soon enough.
- Lord of the Flies – If students are dreaming of an island getaway, this will majorly rain on their parade.
- Walden – Take the summer to be at one with nature… and a book.
- The Bacchae – Summertime… and the living is easy.
- Call of the Wild – Sure, it’s about winter, but summer is the best time to heed the call.
- Holes – This one’s about a summer camp – a prison camp, but hey, it’s hot and there’s a lake.
- The Phantom Tollbooth – School’s out, but learning’s not.
- Matilda – Roald Dahl: a kid’s best friend. He’ll even help kids plan some pranks for next year.
- The Alchemyst – Students are going to want to jump on this bandwagon.
- Beautiful Creatures – The next Twilight?
- The Sun Also Rises – It’s kind of like The Bacchae (see above). In Spain. With bullfighters.
- The Three Musketeers – Need some inspiration for summer adventure? These are the guys for it. P.S. Swashbuckling. Great word.
- Light in August – Self-explanatory.
- Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows – Suffering from withdrawal? Relive the magic.
- A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Duh.
- Big Sur – Road trip!
- From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler –Just because it’s awesome.
- Catching Fire – Lather, rinse and repeat until a student can move on to Mockingjay.
- Inferno – Just some light reading.
