4 New Books To Read Before The Summer Is Over
The summer is almost over and yet there is still so much to read. I have gotten deep into reading again this year and I am loving it! There have been so many good books that have come out this spring and summer. So, before the summer is over and the cold weather sneaks in, here are four books you should read before the hot days of summer are over!
"Hum If You Don't Know The Words" By: Bianca Marais: This book centres around two women and it's a story that takes places during the South Africa's apartheid. It is a story of a Black woman, who's daughter is missing and has to take a job as nanny for well to do White family. But there is a secret that will solve a the disappearance of a missing daughter and the person who's the keeper of this secret won't tell. The background of this novel is the Soweto uprising, which was a turning point in Southern African politics and the apartheid. When I read the summary of this book, it reminded me of "The Kite Runner", so that alone makes me want to read this book!
"Once And For All" By: Sarah Dessen: I have never read a Sarah Dessen book but I know that loads of people love her novels! This one is a boy meets girl, boy doesn't like commit to any relationship, girl is hesitant and doesn't believe in love and yet somehow they figure it all out! It is a young adult rom-com that will be great to read at the cottage!
"In To The Water" By: Paula Hawkins: If you like "Girl On The Train" then this book is for you. Full of expense and a mix of murder mystery, this book is about women turning up dead in the lake. Particularly, a single mother of a teenager who is found dead a the lake that also washed up a teenage girl. Just like her first novel, it is all suspense and who done it? So, if you are into murder mysteries and suspense, then this book is for you.
"New Boy" By: Tracy Chevalier: This book is a retelling of Shakespeare's play Othello and it is a part of a series of books being released by different authors retelling some of Shakespeare's famous plays. I am currently reading this book right now and I am liking it. If you know the play Othello, then I don't need to say more, but if you don't; this book centres around a bunch of 6th graders and the new boy who has come to their school. Taking place in the 70's in the United States, this story, just like the play has themes of racism and most importantly betrayal.
