  (June 11, 2012)

Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) June 11, 2012

Shmoop, a publisher of digital curriculum and test prep, announces its 3rd Annual Summer Reading List. If students are looking to get lost in the pages (or Kindle screens) of some seriously awesome summer reads, theyve come to the right place.

The best books to read this summer:

  •     Lord of the Rings Trilogy
Because, come on, when else will students have the time?

December 14, 2012 couldnt come soon enough. Shmoop loves J.R.R.


If students are dreaming of an island getaway, this will majorly rain on their parade.

  •      Walden
Take the summer to be at one with nature and a book.

  •     The Bacchae
Summertime and the living is easy.

  •     Call of the Wild
Sure, its about winter, but summer is the best time to heed the call.

  •     Holes
This ones about a summer campa prison camp, but hey, its hot and theres a lake.

Schools out, but learnings not.

Roald Dahl: a kids best friend. Hell even help kids plan some pranks for next year.

Students are going to want to jump on this bandwagon. Trust Shmoop.

The next Twilight? Shmoop thinks so.

  •     The Sun Also Rises
Its kind of like The Bacchae (see above). In Spain. With bullfighters.

  •     The Three Musketeers
Need some inspiration for summer adventure? These are the guys for it. P.S. Swashbuckling. Great word.

  •     Light in August
Self-explanatory.

  •     Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows
Suffering from withdrawal? Relive the magic.

  •      A Midsummer Nights Dream
Duh.

  •      Big Sur
Road trip!

  •     From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler
Just because its awesome.

Lather, rinse, and repeat until a student can move on to Mockingjay.

  •      Inferno
Just some light reading.
