Last week we featured some great non-fiction reads. This week we’ve turned the page to suggest a few works of fiction for all ages and preferences. If you are going to the beach or just planning to relax at home, the following books should keep you and your children entertained:
- A new book from Inkwater Press heads up our list. If I Catch You Reading This is a sophisticated book reader’s dream, a book of contemporary short stories by author Jeremy R. Benjamin that are as witty and ironic as any we’ve read.
- Repeat Business is a heart-breaker of a book with an occult theme and a happy ending. Author Joe Carufe set much of the book in a beach town in Florida, and this book is the next best thing to being there .
- Author E. A. Sunden has written a book teenage girls will love with Domain of Illusion. A fantasy with a strong female protagonist, the book has all of the elements great fantasies share.
- Mike Reiss of The Simpsons wrote City of Hamburgers, a read-aloud picture book that both you and your children will enjoy. Imagination, as well as ketchup and mustard, flow through this delightfully quirky book.
All of these books are available at inkwaterbooks.com and other popular online retail outlets.
