Summer Reading List

1. Station Eleven // Emily St. John Mandel

“It was gorgeous and claustrophobic. I loved it and I always wanted to escape.”

2. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe // C.S. Lewis

“Aslan is a lion- the Lion, the great Lion." "Ooh" said Susan. "I'd thought he was a man. Is he-quite safe? I shall feel rather nervous about meeting a lion"..."Safe?" said Mr Beaver ..."Who said anything about safe? 'Course he isn't safe. But he's good. He's the King, I tell you.” 

3. Restless // Jennie Allen

"Great people do not do great things; God does great things through surrendered people."

4. Outliers // Malcolm Gladwell

"The people who stand before kings may look like they did it all by themselves. But in fact they are invariably the beneficiaries of hidden advantages and extraordinary opportunities and cultural legacies that allow them to learn and work hard and make sense of the world in ways others cannot. It makes a difference where and when we grew up."

5. Paper Towns // John Green

“It is easy to forget how full the world is of people, full to bursting, and each of them imaginable and consistently misimagined.”
