Summer is one of my favorite seasons to read. It seems as if life slows down a little and leisurely activities like day trips or relaxing is more common. I hope you enjoy a list of my favorite books I’ve read so far.
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
This is probably my favorite book of all time. If you enjoy a good mystery I recommend this wholeheartedly! The story is masterfully written and you will be on the edge of your seat from the moment you begin.
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
I actually read this book a long time ago but it’s setting has stuck with me. There’s something about the circus that feels magical! I usually don’t gravitate towards stories that use time travel, but this is my exception. I think it’s worth the read.
Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
I’m OBSESSED with this book! I’ve heard whispers of it possibly becoming a movie and I sure hope that it does. This story has a little romance, some mystery, and a lot of heart. The setting feels alive and the author really makes you feel for her main character. This is a perfect summer read!
A Blood Thing by James Hankins
This book I actually won in a GoodReads raffle and I’m so glad I did. This book is a thriller! It brings the question to everyone’s mind, how far would you go for family? Such a provocative thought, brought about in a great way. If you want to be thrilled this is the book to pick up!
The Best Place to Be Today : 365 Things to Do & The Perfect Day to do them by Lonely Planet
This book can easily be explained by it’s title. The pictures throughout are beautiful. I consider it the perfect summer book to inspire your future travels or just your imagination.
Maybe some of these books will transport you from the difficulties of your everyday life. Some of us had vacations planned for this summer and are unable to go because of Covid-19 or other reasons. Books are the closest thing to a vacation when you have to stay home.
