The 2018 Summer Reading Guide is here. This year's guide contains 25 (soon to be 26) titles that are perfect for the beach, pool or backyard. But just for fun (and just like last year, and the year before that, and the year before that) I’m narrowing the choices down to 5 total. (Minimalists and decision haters, rejoice!)
These top 5 titles are hugely entertaining, have broad appeal, and cover a wide variety of topics, themes, genres, and perspectives. Despite their variety, they all have two crucial things in common: they're really good, and they embody what a summer read should be. They'll keep you turning the pages, sure, but they also have substance—and I hope you'll find them wonderfully thought-provoking and discussable.
I've listed my top 5 in order, by publication date. Later this week I'll release a categorized version of the Summer Reading Guide. Stay tuned!
We are reading three of these titles together this summer in the Modern Mrs Darcy Book Club. We're about to release our Summer Syllabus, which makes this a terrific time to join—you don't want to miss the new Get More Out of Your Library class or our book club discussions with Maria De Los Santos and Sujata Massey.
Don't miss it!
