Summer Reading Lists

Collage of Summer Reading books

I love reading lists. I love when someone pulls together a list of good books, tells me a little about each one and then lets me choose my next read. I'll take a good reading list any time of the year, but I especially enjoy a summer reading list. Lucky for me, there are plenty of summer reading lists out there. Not only because library summer reading programs are in full swing  (which I also love), but also because summer makes us think of vacations, beaches, relaxing, which brings us to reading. Although I'm not going to a beach this summer, that's not going to stop me from indulging in some beach reads. Summer just feels like the perfect time to grab something light and enjoyable, something that's easy to put down, but fun to pick up. Cue the summer reading lists. There's a variety here: Summer Must Reads and Summer Paperbacks from Entertainment Weekly, Best Summer Books 2014 from Publishers Weekly, Summer Reading List from TED, Summer Books Preview from the LA Times, and Best Summer Reads for 2014 from On Point with Tom Ashbrook (including 10 picks from Paul Ingram of Prairie Lights Bookstore in Iowa City).  Did you add any of the books from these lists to your own? Happy reading!
