2019 Summer Reading List

Morning everyone! I have a fabulous piece of news to share with you…. IT’S SUMMER! πŸ˜€

Well, for me at least. πŸ˜‰ I finished up school at my co-op a few weeks ago and I’m finally feeling more relaxed. (YAY!) I actually still have to do some school during summer, (like Algebra, if I want to do Geometry this coming year) but that’s okay. πŸ™‚ It still doesn’t quite feel like summer though… it’s actually been a very cold May which is strange!

Anyway. Today I will be sharing the books that I want to get read this summer. (hopefully this will end up better than last summer. XD)

Let’s get on with this post.

Oh, also. I’m doing a summer reading challenge with a friend… we’re going to try and read one book every day of June, and I’m hoping to knock a lot of these books out then. πŸ˜‰

ONE MORE THING. I CUT MY HAIR ON SATURDAY.

I feels SO short…. it’s crazy. My mom cut about nine inches off!! :O Now, it just barely reaches my waist. IT FEELS SO SHORT THOUGH.

Ya know what? Let’s start with the school books…

By school books, I mean… well, I mean three things.

  1. Books that my mom wanted me to read during the school year that I never did
  2. Books I added to my school reading list and never read
  3. Books that are on my co-op school reading list that I haven’t yet read.

Most of them are #3. In my defense, I had no idea there was even a school reading list for our co-op until about two months ago. XD Also, it has probably close to one hundred books on it.

 

By the Great Horn Spoon!

By the Great Horn Spoon! by Sid Fleischman (Goodreads)

*happy sigh* The last time I read this was in fourth grade… I remember loving it!! So yes, I’m re-reading it! πŸ˜‰

This is one of those books that I added to my school list.

 

Amos Fortune, Free Man

Amos Fortune, Free Man by Elizabeth Yates (Goodreads)

My sister read this book for school a few years ago and I had never read it! This is another one of those books I added. XD

 

Freckles (Limberlost, #1)

Freckles by Gene Stratton-Porter (Goodreads)

This is a book my mom wants me to read… I actually have read it, but it was a long, long, LONG time ago… I think I liked it?? πŸ˜‚

 

A Girl of the Limberlost (Limberlost, #2)

A Girl of the Limberlost by Gene Stratton-Porter (Goodreads)

The second in the series… (from the book above)

 

Christy

Christy by Catherine Marshall (Goodreads)

I can guarantee that I can get this read because I’m currently reading it, so, yeah! πŸ˜‰

And it’s pretty good so far… πŸ™‚

 

Number the Stars

Number the Stars by Lois Lowry (Goodreads)

And here begins the long section of books that are on my co-op reading list! πŸ˜€ (that I haven’t read… I’ve read quite a lot of them!)

I’ve also wanted to get some more World War II books in my reading, so this will be a good thing to read.

 

Soft Rain: A Story of the Cherokee Trail of Tears

Soft Rain: A Story of the Cherokee Trail of Tears by Cornelia Cornelissen (Goodreads)

More historical fiction!! Yay! πŸ˜€ This sounds like it might be sad, though…

 

The Yearling

The Yearling by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings (Goodreads)

I’ve heard that this book is sad… oh boy. *sniff*

 

Marco Polo

Marco Polo by Demi (Goodreads)

This should be a nice, short read! Goodreads says it’s only 64 pages! πŸ™‚ Also… isn’t that an interesting cover? XD That looks like a very grumpy camel.

 

The Adventures of Robin Hood

The Adventures of Robin Hood by J. Walker McSpadden (Goodreads)

*can’t think of anything to say* *moves on*

 

The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling (Goodreads)

I read this a long time ago, I think, so now I’m reading it again.

 

The Kite Rider

The Kite Rider by Geraldine McCaughrean (Goodreads)

Judging from the cover, this should be an interesting book! πŸ™‚

 

Otto of the Silver Hand

Otto of the Silver Hand by Howard Pyle (Goodreads)

Should be an interesting book to try out! πŸ˜€

 

The Odyssey

The Odyssey by Homer (Goodreads)

Yep, I’m gonna read it.

 

Uncle Tom's Cabin

Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe (Goodreads)

I’m interested to see if I’ll like this or not… in the section where you can see what your friends think on Goodreads, some people seemed to really like it, but others, not as much.

 

Blackthorn Winter

Blackthorn Winter by Douglas Wilson (Goodreads)

*not sure why the cover is smaller… oh well*

I want to read this book this summer, as well as the sequel (if I like the first), Susan Creek.

 

Indian Captive: The Story of Mary Jemison

Indian Captive: The Story of Mary Jemison by Lois Lenski (Goodreads)

One more school book to go!

Okay.

Let’s move on to other books than ones I’m reading for school. XD

 

The Merchant's Daughter (Hagenheim, #2)

I need to finish this series at some point, so I’m adding the second book to my reading list.

 

The Vanderbeekers and the Hidden Garden (The Vanderbeekers #2)

The Vanderbeekers and the Hidden Garden by Karina Yan Glaser (Goodreads)

I’ve read the first book in this series and it was really fun, so now I want to read the second! πŸ˜€ (plus it counts for a Goodreads challenge, so… ;))

 

The Borrowers (The Borrowers, #1)

The Borrowers by Mary Norton (Goodreads)

I just bought a copy of this book from the used book store recently… I also own the second, third, and fourth books, but I’ve never read them for some reason?? Not sure why. XD

 

Tuck Everlasting

Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbit (Goodreads)

I remember loving this book when reading it in fifth grade, and, like By the Great Horn Spoon!, I’m going to re-read it! πŸ˜€

The False Prince (The Ascendance Trilogy, #1)

The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen (Goodreads)

I’ve heard about this book a lot, so this summer, I’m going to try it for myself and see if I like it! πŸ˜€

 

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (Chronicles of Narnia, #1)

The ENTIRE Narnia series, starting with The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis (Goodreads)

Yep! You read right! I want to read the ENTIRE Narnia series in the correct order. πŸ˜‰ (publication order)

I haven’t picked up Narnia in quite awhile and am excited to do so again! πŸ˜€

 

Anne of Ingleside (Anne of Green Gables, #6)

The last three books of the Anne of Green Gables series by L. M. Montgomery, starting with Anne of Ingleside (Goodreads)

This summer, I want to finish reading the Anne of Green Gables series… this means the last three books starting with Anne of Ingleside, which I think I’m going to like very much!! πŸ˜€

 

The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate (Calpurnia Tate, #1)

The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly (Goodreads)

I received this as a present a few years back and really need to get it read! πŸ˜€

 

A Ring of Endless Light (Austin Family, Book 4)

Go back up to the previous description, read it…. same applies here. XD

My family owns this entire series, and it has been FOREVER since I’ve read them!!! They definitely need a re-read. πŸ˜‰
