Kick off the summer with a curated guide to the best summer reads. Anyone can browse a best seller list, but those lists don't help you decide if those are the right books for YOU.

That's why I put out this guide every year. These are my hand-picked top reads for the season. I've read every book in it, front to back, and can tell you why each title may or may not be the right book for YOU. Amazon has millions of books, your local bookstore has thousands, but this guide has just 30 handpicked titles—-that's 5 books each over 6 categories--so you can bypass the duds and go straight to the good stuff.

This guide is so much fun to put together and I'm so happy to share it with you. I hope you find some amazing titles to read this summer.
