Summer Reading List

With this brutal heat wave we’ve had recently, I think it’s safe to say that summer has (un)officially begun! Here at the office, we’re fortunate to have summer Fridays, when the office closes at 1 pm from Memorial Day until Labor Day. For some, it’s a most welcome opportunity for a long weekend away, and for others, a great chance to catch up on some recreational reading.

Over the long weekend, I came across this pretty terrific list of 15 Summer Reads Handpicked by Indie Booksellers, and suffice it to say that more than a few of these titles have since infiltrated my own summer reading list.

What types of books do you prefer to read during the summer? Captivating thrillers that will chill you to your core? Adventure novels set in the Arctic where you can easily imagine yourself when it gets too hot to bear?

  1. May through July always seem like the months when the sequels I’ve been awaiting come out, so usually my summer reading is second or third books in a series. It’s nice to have that sort of familiarity with the world and characters sometimes, especially if I want to relax.

    Thanks for the list! I made the mistake of choosing the following New Year’s Resolution: read one hundred pages a day. I haven’t missed a day. I get two weeks off: one at a writers conference in two weeks (I’m a workshop leader this year) and one the following week, when I’m with my niece and nephew. The Lorax twenty times counts, doesn’t it?

    I hunt for book lists everywhere. Next year, audiobooks will count or I’ll give myself a day off or something. Oy.
