Don’t know what to read this summer? No worries! I’m here to help and have picked 5 books that I think make for some excellent summer reads. From mystery to comedy and from serious literature to historic: I’ve selected 5 books that I read during summer or in which summer time plays a significant role in the story line. I thought this would be the perfect type of video for kicking off my summer vacation.
What mostly ties these books together is the fact that I read them in summer, usually during travels. So for me, these books are ingrained with summer time memories. From a book set in New York while visiting New York to a road trip book while you are actually road tripping: I like reading books that enhance the trip I’m on at that point in time. But I also love a good mystery/ detective story while we’re at it and summer time is the best time for reading something lighthearted and humorous. I discuss each one in the video below:
The books featured in this video are:
- Stephen Fry – The Liar
- Colum McCann – This Side of Brightness
- Will Ferguson – Hustle (review)
- Jack Kerouac – On the Road (review)
- Ben Aaronovitch – Foxglove Summer (review)
What are your favorite summer reads?
