Recommend A... meme

…Book That Reminds You of Summer

Recommend A… is a SUPER meme hosted by Shanyn from Chick Loves Lit that lets us get a little random, and a little off the radar. I LOVE IT.

Ahh, summer. I love it so much when it’s just gathering steam, but I’m never sad to see it go because fall is my FAVORITE season of ever. And since we’re talking about seasons this week, I might as well just tell you up front that I’m a seasonal reader. Like, I won’t read books about summers on the beach at Christmas time, just like I won’t read books that take place in cold, snowy climes in the summer. I also often find myself craving less substantive books in the summer. Fall is basically fantasy time. Anyway, this post is really getting away from me. FOCUS, AMY. BOOK THAT REMINDS ME OF SUMMER. I’m going to hit you with some MG this week, friends.

Book cover for The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall

The Penderwicks: Penderwicks #1 by Jeanne Birdsall

This is one of my favorite middle grade series ever, and it just so happens to take place in the summer. I first read it in the summertime, so every time I look at it or reread it, it reminds me of summer. But more than taking place in the summertime, THE PENDERWICKS is a really sweet, funny, heartwarming story about a family of sisters living with their widowed father. The sisters are so different but close, and their father is lovable if a little absent-minded. SUCH a great series, guys.

    I feel like I hear about this book quite a bit on the blogs I follow, but only on a couple. Like the people who’ve read it love it a lot but not many do read it, you know?

    I really need to read this series! You’ve talked about it so much and I really love books that have plucky kids as the main characters!

    I love the Penderwicks! I haven’t read the other two in the series, though. I am sometimes a seasonal reader, and sometimes I read books that take place in the winter during the summer. Although I love the fall, all I can think of when fall gets underway is that winter is around the corner. We get so much snow here (Syracuse) that I get all stressed about it. Driving to work in crappy weather is aweful!

    Have you read the other Penderwicks?

Tell me what's up!
