Summer and books have always been synonymous for me.
From the summer reading programs at the local library as a small child, to replacing friends with make-believe characters at the lake, books have always kept me company on those lazy, hazy days of summer. I consumed stacks of books one after another lying on the dock, on the deck, or tucked in bed on a rainy day at the cottage.
I later encouraged my children to read during the summer by letting them pick out a pile of favourites before we left for our 3-day road up north every year.
As we pack up for the lake once more, here are my favourite summer reads!
After all, the best book is a shared book. Let us know in the comments which book you’ll read first and then share this list with other book lovers!
