Recommended Summer Reading

* Please note, this is NOT the REQUIRED summer reading that everyone will be doing this summer. More on that later…

Third Period:

The nonfiction books mentioned in class today were Natalie Goldberg’s Writing Down the Bones and Wild Mind, Stephen King’s On Writing, and Thomas C. Foster’s How to Read Literature Like a Professor.

Fiction recommendations from your peers during the last few minutes of class were A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hossieni, A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway, the Twilight trilogy by Stephenie Meyer, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. I’ve read all but the first, and must say that they’re all extremely enjoyable reads.

Please feel free to comment on this post with more recommendations and/or thoughts about any of these books!

Before I close for the evening, I must also recommend a fantastic writing-and-reading-related MOVIE to watch over the summer — Stranger than Fiction. Trust me, it’s wonderful.
