Today May 18th, Top 5 Wednesday takes a peek of some favourite summer reading. You know that yucky hot season where the beach is the best life saver, picnics and the dream for rain. Oops sorry for dissing anyone’s love for summer! haha. I will share the stories where I feel myself dancing in the rain enveloped in a fierce breeze or on an adventure.
Let us dive into it:
5. Jock of Bushveld by Percy Fitzpatrick
For Adventure, Jock (the dog) goes on those epic hunting trips with his owner in the Australian outback. You will meet high water rivers, animal battles, human disagreement with a twist and turn that left me wondering if I can survive a hot Australian summer on such adventure.
4. The Paper Roses by Amanda Cabot
I think that one of the best times to read Historical Fiction is either when you are really cold or warm/hot. The setting most times falls under these two mentioned weather conditions. Picture Texas in summer under a clear blue sky, mix in a thunder-storm, a murder and two people realizing they are growing in love in a historical setting of a ranch. Ding, ding: The Paper Roses!
