The Books of Summer

Today’s post by yours truly | @ArielLawhon

Books 0f Summer 3

Last June we did a little experiment. Instead of picking an official monthly selection we chose The Books of Summer–five novels that were the perfect reads to pack in your beach bag and savor all summer long. The series was so popular that not only did we decide to bring it back this year, but we are going to make it a yearly tradition.

How it works: every Thursday during the month of June we will feature one of the novels in this series and introduce you to its author. The cool part? You will have the chance to win ALL FIVE novels every Thursday this month. So bookmark this page and check back with us each week.

*Update: The Books of Summer series will run through the first Thursday in July. And we will announce our July book club pick the following Monday.

Curious about the novels we’ve chosen this year? Here’s a sneak peek:
