Celebrate July 4th With These Great Books!
If you're in the United States, Happy Fourth of July!!!
It's a day for barbecues, for beaches, for fireworks, for family--and of course, a day full of history as we celebrate our country becoming independent!
I love reading thematic books during holidays and/or seasons.
I've rounded up a few that take place over the Fourth of July in case you'd also like to read something fun today!

If you want a book that mixes serious issues with the fun of living in a tourist town on summer vacation, this book's for you! Vivi thinks she's escaping everything she's left behind and can forget her worries on vacation. She never expected to find love...or a whole new set of problems!
2) THIS IS WHAT HAPPY LOOKS LIKE by Jennifer E. Smith
