Favourite Summer Reads Blogfest

Hosted by Surrounded by Books. Cherie says. 'All you have to do is post on your blog between August 24-27 and tell us what is your favourite summer read. Please post a picture of a book's cover art, a description of the book and why it is your favourite summer read. Then we can hop around and find great books.'

When I think of summer I think of youthful summer holidays and I have recently started reading lots of MG/YA. These are my favs:

Cosmic by Frank Cotterill Boyce is an excellent MG read that's very funny.

Harry Potter by JKRowling has such a rich wealth of imagination and plot complexity and spans both MG and YA as the heros grow up.

The Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness is an edge of the seat YA journey.
It is set on another planet and has romance and aliens and good and evil and endurance and tension and so much more besides.
Fabulous! I commend them all to you.

Oh and if you think adults shouldn't waste their time reading MG/YA, then ask yourselves:
Who writes them? Adults
Is imagination not the essence of good literature? YES
I rest my case.
