Fun Summer Reading List for Girls!

Does Nancy Drew make you yawn? Do you want books that last a little longer than the Dork Diaries? Before long you'll be fighting boredom with this collection of good reads.

The Molly Moon Series by Georgia Byng – When Molly discovers a strange book, she soon learns that she possesses the extraordinary ability to hypnotize people and animals, and oh, did I mention she can make time stand still? The books include a sprinkle of time travel, a tablespoon of magical crystals, and a heaping cup of girl power!

The Daring Book for Girls by Andrea J. Buchanan and Miriam Peskowitz – This book isn't really for reading the whole way through; it's more for flipping through for fun activities and ideas. It's a great one to have by your side the whole summer! I mean, what other book tells you Japanese T-Shirt Folding, Fourteen Games of Tag, and How to Be a Spy?

There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom by Louis Sachar – Louis's books are always great summer reads, and this one is no exception. Wit and humor are added in the book throughout as you follow the amazing transformation of a boy that everybody hates.

Inkheart Trilogy by Cornelia Funke – I recommend these adventures to everybody. Read a review here!

Theodore Boone by John Grisham – Don't let the title fool you; this series is not just for boys! John Grisham's new series targeted for a younger crowd is great! Read the review here!

Catherine Called Birdy by Karen Cushman – This humorous and adventurous tale gives you a realistic look at the diary of a noble teenage girl growing up in England during the Medieval time period.

The Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling – Even if you're not a big fan of fantasy, give these books a try. They're great for drives to the beach or sitting poolside. Be prepared to think a little with these though.

Number the Stars by Lois Lowry – All summer reading doesn't have to lack substance! This WWII dramatic tale set in Denmark is quite moving and highly recommended!

Agatha Christie – mysteries girls enjoy too; read a review here!

Nine Days a Queen by Ann Rinaldi – An historical novel about Lady Jane Grey who was Queen of England for just nine days when she was just 16 years old!
