Dear reader,

And just like that it’s the end of those summer recommendations! I am now going missing until September because I’m currently in Corsica, relaxing and working on some things for my new job. I can’t wait to be back to you!

For now, let’s jump into some classics to read this summer!


Frenchman’s Creek by Daphne du Maurier

You will love this book if you like_.png

I read this book last Autumn and I believe it’s quite perfect for both seasons. It takes place near the sea, it’s dark and completely gripping. I fell in love with Daphne’s work thanks to this book and I will never stop recommending it.

Emma by Jane Austen

Emma is such a sweet and funny book, I had to add it here. I believe it’ll be perfect to read somewhere peaceful during your summer vacations – it’s easy to read and the story itself makes you want to keep going!

Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy

You will love this book if you like_.png

I read this book a while ago now and absolutely adore it. It wasn’t a surprise as Thomas Hardy is one of my favourite author of all time! I don’t know exactly why I believe this book will be great for the summer but the story and the characters are so amazing and unique, I’m sure it’s a quick and light read.

Le Lys dans la vallée by Honoré de Balzac

You will love this book if you like_.png

The Lily of the Valley is one of my favourite classics of all time, so I had to recommend it. It’s a tragic love story happening in the countryside in France which will make you want to fall in love but will also most likely break your heart. I love the main character Félix so much and I only want him to be happy.

Corinne ou l’Italie by Madame de Staël

You will love this book if you like_.png

I read this book a while ago now (I believe it’s been translated as Corinne) and I adored it. A part of the book takes place in Italy and I’m sure it’ll be quite a great read to take with you on your summer vacations. It has a lot of drama, of love and more!


And that’s it! I’ll miss you guys!

What are some classics you would recommend for the summer?

Love always,

Clara

  1. Great choices. Far From the Madding Crowd is one of my favourite classics. In terms of classics this summer, I was reading East of Eden by Steinbeck and am now planning to read Lost Illusions by Balzac.
