Spring Break Must-Reads!

Spring break is an exciting time in the school year, full of promise and adventure. But most of the time adventures are messy, painful, frightening and emotionally scarring. So, you're better off curled up with a good book. To make you feel better about your spring break plans, I've provided you with my top five spring break must-read adventures that will make you glad you stayed home. 

1. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
If you're sitting in your living room with the same old people you see every day, just be glad you didn't get invited to Soldier Island to spend your holiday with mysterious strangers. 

2. Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
When you're walking around your small town and wishing something exciting would happen, just be glad Cooger & Dark's Pandemonium Shadow Show isn't headed your way.
 
3. Prey by Michael Crichton
While away at spring break it can seem like everyone around you has the newest and most exciting technology, but as Michael Crichton warns, not all technology is fun.

4. The Odyssey of Homer by Richmond Lattimore
You think your two-hour flight delay is bad? Just think, it took Odysseus ten years to get home.

5. Coraline by Neil Gaiman
If your plans for spring break fell through, it can always feel like the grass is greener on the other side, but Coraline will teach you that sometimes the grass on the other side is better left alone. 

Check out my top five and let us know how your spring break reading went!
