As summer is upon us, many bloggers and readers will gravitate toward certain types of books to keep in their beach bag. Personally, summer usually leads me to craving contemporary reads with a summer or warm weather setting. While summer is the perfect season to get lost in a fluffy, feel-good novel, there’s also some amazing summer reads out there that contain plot lines and themes with a lot of substance. Below are four of my recommendations of both newer and back list titles that will satisfy your summer reading cravings while also bringing more substance to your reading experience.
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson | The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler | Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz | Two Summers by Aimee Friedman
