A Touch of Whimsy for the End of Summer

What do you get when you mix some lighthearted humor, a hint of romance and a touch of magic? A bestseller, that’s what!

Here are some much-loved whimsical titles that can help you finish your summer on a high note.

The Princess Bride: We've all seen the movie, but did you know it's based on a book? If you want more high adventure, tragic romance, pirates, swashbuckling, etc... then you should check out this book (literally!). I promise, the dialogue is just as witty as the movie.

The House in the Cerulean Sea:- If you haven't read TJ Klune's bestselling novel yet, get on it! What are you waiting for? I have yet to meet a single person who hasn't adored this story about a social worker for magical youth. 

The Night Circus: This book took the reading world by storm when it came out in 2010, and it continues to gather devoted fans. Dueling magicians, forbidden love, and an impossible task will keep you hanging on until the final page.

The Bear and the Nightingale: If you're already preparing yourself for snowdrifts and winter magic, give this title a try. Set in the frozen rural lands of Russia, one girl must defy her new stepmother to pay homage to the fairy-tale spirits of her past.

Want a few more titles to choose from? I've created a list just for you. Happy reading!
