NPR’s Summer Book Recommendations  

As the title suggests, these are all book recommendations from NPR’s staff. But unlike most lists, this is an all time list. I know I would struggle to choose an all time favorite summer book. NPR let their staff choose a book that they would read by a pool or even on a plane. You can see the full list below!

Summer Reads  

This list by contains well known books as well as books that a reader would come across at a bookstore and buy. Choosing only one summer book is no easy task and I imagine many books may have just missed the cut.  

Some familiar names include The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid, Call Me by Your Name by André Aciman, and Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier. What I like about this list is that many of these books aren’t considered summer books. It is just a label and while some books are released for summer reading, there is no wrong answer.  


That ends this list of NPR’s summer book recommendations. How many of these books have you read? What is your favorite summer book? Let us know in the comments below!
