It’s almost that time of year: we’re putting the finishing touches on the 2021 Summer Reading Guide! This will be the TENTH annual Summer Reading Guide, if you can believe it, and it’s coming your way on Monday, May 24.
Every year, I read stacks and stacks of new releases cover-to-cover so I can send you straight to the good stuff. I want to give you the tools you need to find the books that are right for you.
I can’t wait to put this year’s gorgeous guide in your hands. It’s beautiful to look at, easy to reference, and filled with great content. As usual, we’re formatting the 2021 guide as a PDF in the style of an e-magazine, and we’re sharing it with readers by email.
Release day is right around the corner and I don’t want you to miss out. To get the guide when we release it on May 24, sign up below. We’ll also send you book lists and my newsletter with stories and content only for subscribers.
Update: the Summer Reading Guide is here! Sign up here to get yours.
For more—and early!—Summer Reading Guide goodness, I want to make sure you know about the “Unboxing” I do for our Modern Mrs Darcy Book Club members and What Should I Read Next Patreon community members every year.
This might be the best book party we have all year: in a ninety-minute live session, I reveal every title in the guide, and tell readers why I chose it. Our conversation is casual and unscripted, filled with real talk about great books, in the presence of people who love books and reading.
Unboxing is a DELIGHT, and this year we’re doing it twice to accommodate more readers live: at noon AND 7pm Eastern time on Thursday, May 20. Our members get the guide in their inboxes just after the Unboxing—which means they get it four days early.
Our members also get an expanded guide with exclusive content, including fifteen additional titles, extra book lists, and other fun bonus content. If you’ve ever considered becoming a member, this is an excellent time to jump in.
I can’t wait to share the guide with you and to hear what you’re adding to your TBR. I’m so looking forward to the summer reading season to come, and I hope you are, too.
Happy reading, friends!
P.S. If you think you’re signed up for our email list, but for some reason you’ve stopped getting our emails, would you let us know so we can fix it before May 24? If you want the guide, we want you to get the guide. Just email email@example.com with the subject line “lost emails” and let us know the last email you got from us. (If you’re not sure, search your email for “from: modernmrsdarcy” and see what’s there.)
