This Summer's Reading List

Summer is approaching quickly and it's time for another summer reading list. This year's list includes fiction and non-fiction, French and English works. I'm continuing to read the Shetland series of mysteries by Ann Cleeves (I'm currently reading Dead Water), but my e-reader is well-stocked with these other books for summer:

  • We that are Left - Clare Clark - historical fiction about the aftermath of World War I
  • Strange Defeat - Marc Bloch - nonfiction about the fall of France in 1940
  • Manon Lascaut - Abbé Prévost - the French classic
  • Under Fire - Henri Barbusse - fiction in translation about World War I.

Just in case these get a little too heavy, I'm also looking forward to reading Tennessee Williams' The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone.

My theme for this summer: dramatic events in memorable places.
