Books for Summer- Beach Reads and more!

Summer has officially started! No more school, stress, and a lot more free time and what's better than spending that free time reading? So we here at Wonderland Novels have a compiled a list of some fun beach reads for every reader!

Sarah's Picks
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan - As the first novel in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians this is a fun and quick read. Actually all of the books in the Olympian series would make great beach reading material with a main character who can control the ocean, talk to horses, and battle mythical monsters with a transforming sword and witty comebacks.

Storm Glass by Maria V. Snyder - A spinoff of the study series, in this book we focus on the magical glass maker Opal, now all grown off and figuring out the extent of her own powers. In the course of learning to overcome her own insecurities and growing into her own she travels all over the magician filled lands of Sitia and Ixia. While exploring her powers and  avoiding kidnapping, Opal finds adventure, handsome stormdancers, and beautiful ocean views. This is one fantasy novel perfect for the beach.

Raisa's Picks

An Abundance of Katherines by John Green - If you're looking for adventure, or at least that of the road trip variety, this is the book for you. An Abundance of Katherines has the makings of a beautiful summer - the romance, the friendship, the travel, and the lessons learned in between. Follow Colin Singleton and his best friend Hassan as they try to solve The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability in their road trip misadventures. It's a funny, lighthearted comedic romance great for an easy summer read. 

Reincarnation by Suzanne Weyn - This book is full of romance, specifically a romance that spans thousands upon thousands of years. It begins with a man and a woman from prehistoric times, fighting over a gem. In each reincarnation, they are brought together over the same gem, but the endings are not always happy - until the end, the present day. You're drawn to each story of reincarnation, wondering when the two star-crossed lovers will get their happy ending. Recommended for those with dreams of summer romance.
