Summer Books

For me, summer is all about reading. While I'm sitting on the beach, I'm reading. While I'm tanning by the pool, I'm reading. Before bed, I read. When I wake up, I read. Two summers ago I read 25 books that summer. I feel like I live at the library during the summer. I get books in groups of 4, finish those, then come back.

I don't know why, but most of the books I read during the summer are books about summer. It doesn't feel right to read them at any other point in the year, and I just love thinking about the beach or the pool and picturing myself there even when I'm laying in my bed.

Here are some books that are on my list to read this summer:
