Summer is finally here! My favorite thing about summer (okay, besides the sunny weather, beautiful beaches and swimming) is summer reading. I love combing through all the recommended reading lists and picking the perfect book. There’s nothing better than relaxing at the beach, resting your toes in the sand and loosing yourself in a fabulous read.
To help you find the best books for you, we’ve compiled a “list of the lists” so you can have every great summer read at your disposal—everything from recommended e-book singles and video lists to the traditional summer reading lists. So, grab your towel and shades, and pack your tote with this year’s hottest reads. Happy summer reading!
