This summer was not a big reading summer for me. I did read three books.
The first book was The Martian by Andy Weir. This is about a space expedition to Mars in which one astronaut gets left behind when the mission goes wrong. His fellow astronauts thought he was dead when they left, but he wasn't. The rest of the novel is spent working through how the astronaut is going to get back to earth. This book comes out as a movie sometime in 2016 starring Matt Damon. It may be one of the few books that I like better on the big screen than in print.
I also read To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han. I will recommend this to the first teen girl who wants a fun relationship read. There was enough of a twist to keep me reading and I liked the main characters.
I finished the summer with All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. This novel set during WWII kept me intrigued as chapters alternated between the lives of the two main characters: a blind girl and an orphaned boy. Both characters had to endure during the desperate times of WWII and I waited patiently to find out how their two lives would intersect. I would highly recommend this to someone who likes to read historical fiction.
The 2016-17 school year will be my 7th year as the high school librarian. I haven't read all of the books on the shelves, but I try and keep up on my young adult reading.
