TODAY IS THE DAY!
The 2021 Summer Reading Guide is here!
It’s time to whip out your library card or load up your Kindle or order a few physical books for summer. Whatever your preferred way of getting your hands on these titles is, these are all great books to read this summer.
This is the seventh annual Summer Reading Guide and it’s so fun for me to spend months reading new releases and looking through backlists to find just the right titles for your summer reading list.
Whether you want something to read on your own or aloud to your kids, to listen to or read on paper, fiction or non-fiction, I hope you’ll find exactly the right titles to make your summer reading extra enjoyable.
This year, the summer reading guide includes five categories with five books per category.
For each book, I’m sharing a short description of the book so you can quickly decide whether it’s something you’ll love or one you can skip.
As in past years, I try to make sure it’s a good mix of both new releases and older titles because as a heavy library user myself, I know how frustrating it is when I go to my library to request books from a summer reading list and every. single. book. has a request line 100 people long. It kind of makes you want to tear your hair out!
THE 2021 SUMMER READING GUIDE
In keeping with the way we’ve done the Summer Reading Guide for the past several years, I’ve created a printable version of the Summer Reading Guide.
It makes it very easy to see all the titles and categories at a glance, it has the number of pages for each book, it has extra suggestions for more books to read if you like certain titles or categories, and it has handy bonus tips for fitting in more reading, trying audiobooks, and more.
And it has all the titles on a single page if you want to print it out and take it to the library with you!
I hope it makes it easier than ever to have your best summer of reading. Just pop your email in the form below and it’ll come right to your inbox:
