The Potter Family, Part 1: Fantasy Foundations

The Cursed Child is coming out! Jim Kay is illustrating the series! Newt is getting his own movie! These are all excellent things, and there is so much joy in this series that I’m glad we can spend more time with what J.K. Rowling has created. However, there are plenty of other books that can be read in addition to them. This is part one of a multi-post series of Harry Potter read likes for all ages. First up: Fantasy Novels and Fantasy Foundations.

Summer Reads: YA Edition

I find myself on the fence about "Summer Reads" reading lists. On the one hand, my philosophy is simple: if you want a beach read, all you have to do is read on the beach. Anything that works for you is a legitimate choice for summer reading! On the other hand, if you're anything like me, a 500 page biography of cancer just isn't going to cut it when your toes are in the sand and you're sipping on something a bit stronger than lemonade. For that reason, I love to pick up a good young adult title for the beach. The YA novels that I've recommended here are all fast-paced with just the right balance of complexity and lightheartedness, perfect for binge-reading on your lazy summer days.

Summer's finally here and with it comes the greatest of warm-weather activities: summer reading!

Whether we're reading the hot new release, or returning to a classic we somehow missed in school, everyone here has a lot of books they're excited to read in the coming months. We hope this list provides you some inspiration for a great literary summer!
