Best Books To Read This Summer

If there is anything that last year has taught us is that there is no such thing as too many books. During the initial days of the pandemic, hundreds of people regretted passing up the opportunity to hoard more books because let’s face it, books kept us sane and functioning during that awfully uncertain time.

In most countries, the coronavirus is at its peak. Therefore, as the world outside gets turned upside down and we are forced into house arrest, the best thing to do is turn our noses inside a book and just avoid the world for as long as we can. Summer season and book reading have always been staples to each other.

Whether it is the thought of enjoying a fun summer read while sunbathing in a pool or having a sizzling rom-com accompany you to the beach, summer has always been a fun season for bookworms. However, this year, things look a little different. We may not be able to go to the beach or pool but not to worry, we still cannot wait to read for long afternoons in the living room with a fan slowly running in the background.

This summer, we have got great news for bookworms everywhere: This is a great season for books. Some of your favorite authors have steamy new titles dropping just in time for summer vacation. Apart from our favorite authors, a huge number of very promising debut authors and under-the-radar hits will also find their way to the top of your TBR pile. So what are you waiting for? Pick up a stack of these to carry with you wherever the summer sun takes you and by that we mean, your living room or by the window.
