Hey Guys!!! This is Alana. Sorry I haven’t posted anything since December. (Wow! December! Has it really been that long? It feels like it’s been 6 months ago.) I have been mainly spending my life in Narnia, the best place to be at. (Basically because of Aslan).
It’s nice to get out of the house after spending a whole year being cooped up inside. Now that the restrictions have been lifted, I decided to create a summer-reading book list that might make you want to go on your own adventures.
#1. Little House on the Prairie
by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Since we want to travel to new places, I thought Little House on the Prairie would be a great choice to read. Set in the late 1800s, it shows the Ingalls family leaving their home in Wisconsin and moving to the vast prairies of Kansas – a place they have never been before – to make a new and better life for them.
#2. The Chronicles of Narnia
by C. S. Lewis
The whole series are about kids from the real world who journey into the magical land of Narnia and have many adventures there. I thought the stories would be perfect to read as we start to have our own adventures out in the world.
#3. The Problim Children
by Natalie Lloyd
In this book, seven siblings – the Problim children – who move into their late-grandfather’s house after their own house got blown up. They have to proved that they are the descendents of their grandfather in 3 weeks before a terrible woman tries to send each Problim child to 7 different continents. It is a great book for someone who loves mysteries, treasure huntings, and even humor.
#4. The Captive Kingdom
by Jennifer A. Nielsen
For all False Prince fans out there, here is the fourth book in the series. Sage is on another life-threatening adventure with his friends in this suspenseful swashbuckling tale sure to rival any of those told on the high seas. A perfect book to read when you have nothing left to do.
#5. The Healer’s Apprentice
by Melanie Dickerson
This one is a Christian-romance retailing of Sleeping Beauty. The story is about a girl, an apprentice to a healer in Germany, who falls in love with the prince after tending to the wound in his leg. It is a wonderful, sweet story for YA readers to enjoy.
And finally an honorable mention (because you can’t actually buy it at this moment)….
#6. Heir to His Crown
by Issabelle Perry
Of course I would use my sister’s book. In this book a prince is on a quest to save his kingdom from a tyrannical ruler that has invaded his country. Anyone who loves suspense, action-adventure, or high/medieval fantasy, will for sure love this book. So be sure to grab a copy when it releases in hopefully the next three years. I’m kidding…mostly.
