This summer, I am going on an adventure. No, don’t worry! I am not going on a physical journey but on many literary journeys. Below is a list of books that I plan to read this summer. I may or may not get to them all, but that’s OK. I just want to go on an adventure, and I have chosen these books because the characters go on adventures.
Moby-Dick by Herman Melville (I’m currently reading this for a read-along)
The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer
Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
A few Jules Verne novels (read in French, of course)
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle by Hugh Lofting
Hitty, Her First Hundred Years by Rachel Field
The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
The Call of the Wild by Jack London
Through the Looking Glass and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Louis Carroll
Are there other books that I should have included in my list?
