Summer Reading Fun

Summer Reading Fun!

Dallas, TX can get rather warm during the summer, and we’ve got a great idea of how to beat the heat! Hibernate in your LBJ Station apartment this summer and do some reading! We have put together a book list — but we haven’t suggested specific books — instead we’ve put together a variety of book genres we think members of our apartment community might want to check out this summer.


Many readers like their history with a side of fiction. We like this list of Historical Fiction novels, from war remembrances to missionaries in the 1960s, to ancient Rome, this list has it all.


Read a banned book. It may make you feel slightly rebellious to read something that was once deemed unsuitable for public consumption. Here’s a list of banned and challenged books to choose from — you may be surprised by some of the titles on the list!


Coming of age is a topic that is often addressed in novels and there are some rather remarkable stories in print that may tug at your heartstrings, cringe at remembered experience, or make you laugh in delight.


We all need advice, and we should have at least one type of non-fiction book on this list, right? Reading something from this list of self-help books can give you the boost you need.


When you head to the Dallas Public Library, ask the librarian to recommend a book — or refer to this list of books recommended by librarians; they know what’s popular and great to read.


Memoirs are a fascinating way to learn about someone’s life. Often they are more interesting than fictional accounts.  


Fairy tales are the perfect way to while away time on a lazy weekend. Curl up in the comfort of your apartment and let one of these books take you to a kingdom far, far away.


You’ve seen the movie, but have you read the book? Generally speaking, the book is better than the movie, so relive a favorite movie by reading all the details they couldn’t fit in. We’ll get you started with these books that were made into movies.  


Happy reading! Let us know in the comments what your favorite reads were this summer so we can all have new titles to read.
