We’re a week into summer reading and today I want to talk about what makes a book a good summer read.
I am fairly certain the answer to this question is different for everyone. Some people want to read light books, romances and chick lit and fluff. Others see the long stretch of summer as an opportunity to dig in and read something long or challenging, a book they’ve put off for a long time or always meant to read. Maybe memoirs or biographies are your summer jam. Still others want a paperback over a hard cover or an ebook over a physical book. There are as many choices for summer reading as there are books to read!
Personally, I don’t read any differently in the summer than I do during the other seasons . . . other than the fact that I probably read more because vacations. I might read a light book or two but then I’ll be itching for something with more heft. I might read a really long book but then I’ll be ready for a few short ones to move things along. I really just go by my mood and whatever becomes available from the library.
Having said all that, there are some reading lists for the Summer of 2022 that you may be interested in perusing. Check out these lists for some recommendations that run the gamut from light to heavy and everything in between:
