Hi Yael’s readers!
Today I’m doing a In summer we read post. I’ve gathered a few books that I’ve read and loved. They are very different so there should be at least one book for everyones Summer reading list. Normally I blog over at glitterpeonies.blogspot.com but today I’ve got the honour of making a blogpost for Yael’s lovely blog that I truly love reading.

Burial Rites by Hannah Kent
I read this book in Danish since I’m from Denmark but in English it’s called ‘Burial Rites’. I’ve always admired Iceland’s nature and I wish that I can one day go to Iceland. So when I read that this book took place in Iceland, I picked it up. This is based on a true story but it is also fictional. In 1829 the last public execution on Iceland took place. A man and a woman were beheaded for two murders. The winter before their execution the woman had been held at a farm, guarded by the farmer’s wife and daughters. The woman was called Agnes Magnusdottir. Slowly She tells her story to the Priest and the family She is Living with. I was really captured by this story. Although it must sound a bit scary after reading this, I can tell you, it really is worth reading.

Divergent by Veronica Roth
For this blogpost I’ve chosen quite popular books. But there is a reason to why they’re so popular. That is because they are written so well. You probably all know Divergent. Beatrice Prior grew up in the faction Abnegation. But She has that Feeling of not fitting in. She soon learns that She is Divergent and wont fit in. So she chooses to go to Dauntless. Did she make the right choice? Find out by reading Divergent. I’m currently reading ‘Insurgent’ Which is the next book in the Divergent Series. I just can’t stop reading! So if you haven’t already read them all, you should definitely check them out.

The Fault in our Stars by John Green
I actually read The Fault in our Stars a year ago. But two weeks ago I went to see the movie with one of my Best friends. Then when I got home I read it again. It’s about a girl named Hazel Grace. She is terminally ill with cancer. One day her parents force her to go to a cancer support group. She meets Augustus Waters there. It is a very sad book and when we went to see the movie we cried a lot. But I still recommend reading it.

The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
I’m on the 5th book in this series now. So many things happens in these books. Basically you just follow Clary as She discovers a whole new world and later on you follow all of her new friends as well. I actually find it quite hard to describe this series without just telling everything that happens. I’ve liked this series so much that I’ve just picked up ‘Clockwork angel’ by Cassandra Clare as well.

I hope you liked this post and found it helpful! If you liked it, please check out my blog glitterpeonies.blogspot.com
