Whether you're perched under a beach umbrella or lounging on your porch, there's nothing better than getting lost in a good book on a hot summer day. When you have a real page-turner on your hands, the dog days of summer can seem downright blissful. The only trouble is finding just the right book — one that you never want to put down. After all, summer is too short to be reading a dud! That's why we put together a summer reading list for adults that is guaranteed to turn you into a real bookworm during the remaining weeks of the season.
When I think back on some of my favorite summer memories, many of them are linked to a specific book or series that consumed me at the time. Back in 2014, when I was pregnant with my first, I discovered the Elena Ferrante Neopolitan Novels and it was like the outside world disappeared and I was transported to Naples, Italy in the '50s. I tore through all four books and I was actually a little heartbroken when I finished the last page of the last book. (Fortunately, it's being made into an HBO show so I have that to look forward to!).
Books can be so wonderfully addictive. So, whether you love epic novels or prefer non-fiction, you'll find a book you'll absolutely want to get lost in here.
