Maybe the idea of spring or summer reading has you thinking of school. While you may never want to step foot into a classroom again, there is something enjoyable about reading on those late spring and summer afternoons into the early evening. Maybe your curled up in a big chair in the house or in a rocking chair on the front porch while it lightly rains. Wherever you enjoy reading, you will certainly delight in reading these classic books suggested by The Literary Lifestyle in the upcoming season.
Absent in the Spring
This novel is written by Agathe Christie. The queen of mystery does not offer her readers a whodunit story, but provides a reflective piece that is still truly inspiring. Absent in the Spring tells the story of a woman who takes a look back on her past to see the truth about her life.
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
Everyone knows the story of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, but they may only be familiar with the Disney films. As with any debate over the book and the movie, the book is always better. Read Lewis Carroll’s tale of Alice’s adventures or misadventures rather in the fanciful world of Wonderland.
St. Patrick’s Day may have been in March, but an avid reader can always take the time to read Irish literature. One novel that is worth sitting down to read is Frank McCourt’s Angela’s Ashes. Angela’s Ashes has been voted a #1 New York Times bestseller and the winner of the Pulitzer Prize. What makes this masterpiece a prize, though, is its glimpse into McCourt’s penurious childhood.
