Summer Reading-Join Me!

We are finishing up our school....yay!!!! I plan to do a lot of catching up on reading. You all know I love me some books. But this year did not allow me to read like I normally do. So, I plan to have a fun summer reading. I do have books I plan to read and I will share later on about them. BUT I want to read some works on one particular author. I always challenge myself to read a piece of classic lit every year. Last year (2017) was Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. WOW! It was a tough odd read. But I enjoyed it. I did a unabridged version with true old English language.




This summer I am debating between making reading works by Jane Austen, Louis May Alcott, or Lucy Maud Montgomery.



What would be your choice???? Why?? What book would you make a top choice to read from the author you chose? Do you have a complete different choice of Author? Who?

Excited to see your answers!!!

  1. I love all three authors. Why limit yourself to just one? ;)

  2. I love the three authors you chose! They are all on my list of favorites, you can't go wrong. :) I would like to read more Dickens! Pickwick Papers is probably at the top of my list.

    1. Wuthering Heights is a tough read, it's so strange. I'm wondering if you would like The Tenant of Wildfell Hall better. It's by Emily Brontë's sister Anne, and it's about a mom who flees her controlling husband who is teaching his son to be an alcoholic from a young age. At least I could relate to that. There was basically nothing I could relate to in Wuthering Heights, although it was interesting!

    2. I will check that out. Thank you for sharing. It was a hard read. But it was very interesting. I am still indecisive. :)

  4. I’m writing my own book, and I’m working through a workbook to help me with it. The workbook is called, “Writing the Breakout Novel” by Donald Maass

  5. I love both Louisa May Alcott and Lucy Maud Montgomery and have read pretty much all of their works. I recommend either one. I have not read Jane Austen - I think I probably should but do not feel very drawn to them.
