Do you know what's annoying?
The struggle to find new books that don't have drugs, swearing or *ahem* adult content?
And I'm not reading "adult" literature. Nope. I'm in the children or Young Adult section.
(If you want to hear more about this, I suggest you check out #RebelliousWriting. It's a growing movement in the blogging sphere. The post that started it all can be found HERE)
And I'm here to give you a list of clean books you can read this summer!
1. I'd Tell You That I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You by Ally Carter
Teenage girls who live at a Boarding School that is actually training them as spies.
Another thing about this book, if you continue to read the six book series. At one point, the Main Character meets a group of nuns. And I was sitting there thinking "Oh, this is going to be great." And you know what? It was, I was very happy with the way they were handled. They sounded like...nuns.
2. P.S. I Like You by Kasie West
I've been trying to branch out and read more contemporary novels. Which is hard since they tend to be the ones that are a little ......eeegh. But this one was not! It's a cute fluffy (slightly predictable) story. It's PERFECT for summer. Bonus Points? Both her parents are there, they actually seem like realistic parents and she actually had a family.
3. Faro's Daughter by Georgette Heyer
If you love Jane Austen, then you HAVE to read Georgette Heyer's books. (A word of warning, some of her books have questionable content. These books include: Venitia, Cousin Kate and These Old Shades.) Some of her other good books include: Sylvester or the Wicked Uncle, Arabella, and Black Sheep.
4. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
*gasp* This series is amazing. I know it sounds a little weird and overly sci-fi, but I promise you it is not! The first book is Cinder.
5. A classic (like Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Call of the Wild) or something different. Like a play? I HIGHLY suggest The Twelfth Night by Shakespeare. It's just so deliciously woven together.
And those are my reading suggestions for this summer!
