Summer is my favorite┬áreading season.* Both in terms of the places you can read (beach, pool, park, hammock, tent, etc.) and the tradition of reading for pleasure. Deep in winter, I start a list of the books I’d like to read once it’s warm and sunny and slower-paced.

Here are some of the titles I’m looking forward to savoring this summer:

Pax

Jasper and the Riddle of Riley’s Mine

Orphan Island

The Rocks

Sweetbitter

Do Not Become Alarmed

What’s on your reading list?

*For more on why, I blogged about my summers of book love at the Nerdy Book Club site.
