A Weekend of June Book Deals
Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk – audiobook
This one is set in World War II, with the focus on Annabelle who lives in a small town in Pennsylvania. The audio version of Wolf Hollow is terrific, and listening to it was a completely immersive experience – I felt like I was right there in the hills of Pennsylvania, wondering who was at fault and who to trust. I listened to the whole thing in two days – it was SO good.
My Father’s Dragon by Ruth Stiles Gannett – audiobook
I have to admit this one is not my favorite (I didn’t read it until I read it aloud to Ella and I found it SO PAINFULLY BORING), but I’m including it here because it’s a total classic and many many people are rabid fans.
The Downstairs Girl by Stacey Lee – audiobook
I love a good young adult historical fiction novel and this one from the 2020 Summer Reading Guide did not disappoint. Set in Atlanta in the late 1800s, this was a fascinating peek at Jim Crow laws and the rising tide of suffragism all wrapped up into a fascinating family drama. (Full review here)
