Amanda enjoys reading young adult novels with fiercely independent and whip-smart heroines. The best fantasy novel she has read in years is _[Uprooted](/catalog/work/60172 "Uprooted")_ by Naomi Novik. Otherwise, she likes to read non-fiction titles and pretend to read productivity books cover to cover. She's also one of our romance readers (Regency era only, please).
Summertime is perfect for working on your family's story. You can interview your relatives about their parents and their memories of their grandparents. This collection of books focuses on popular topics from recent genealogy lectures.
