Boredom Buster: the Best Summer Books

Summer's here! Blue skies, water parks, and picnics ahead . . . right?

I love everything about summer: mango popsicles, late-night trampoline jumps, and most importantly, no school. But we've all had a case of the Summer Boredom Blues before.

It's easy to think up a list of all the things you're going to do this summer beforehand (reckless road trip! homemade ice cream!). But when your parents are at work and your friends are all busy, we often slip into a YouTube-watching-spiral.

Not to fear; I have the perfect solution! Duh, duh, duh . . . reading!

“Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.” ~Lemony Snicket

If there was ever a truth that needed to be universally acknowledged, it's that time flies when you have a good book. I'm witness to the fact that hours can slip away when you get your hands on a copy of Anne of Green Gables or The Five People You Meet in Heaven.

Reading expands worlds, allows you to time-travel, and wins you some pretty sweet stuff when you enter your library's summer reading program! Here's a list of 8 books that need to top your reading list. Summer should be a time for discovery, adventure, and fun, so when you're not jet-setting off to Mexico, find your excitement within these pages!
