Summer Reading


I love summertime. Summer is the season of reading everywhere: on the beach, in my Adirondack chair, on a park bench, on a blanket in the grass. In my hunt for some good summer reads, I found lots of covers that capture this season well.

Cartwheels on the beach! (Or is that a head stand?)

That Summer by Sarah Dessen (Speak; May, 2004)

Ah, the water…

Tempest Rising by Tracey Deebs (Bloomsbury; July, 2011)

(This is the Kindle Edition cover, which is cooler than the hardback cover.)

Tara Hudson Hereafter (Harper Collins: June, 2011)

Summer isn’t all about beaches and boating…

Keri Mikulski Stealing Bases: A Pretty TOUGH Novel (Razorbill; July, 2011)

… or boys.

Sharks and Boys by Kristen Tracy (Hyperion Books; June, 2011)

*Thanks to Amy Jones for the "summer reading" art!

  1. These covers are, well, cool. Cooling. I've noticed a distinct increase in the number of snowy and wintery books I've been checking out to kids at my library during this heat wave.
