We love reading year-round, but there’s nothing quite like lounging on a chaise and spending an afternoon by the pool with a nice drink and an even better book. You can’t go wrong with the classics (books or drinks) but if you’re looking for something different, there are plenty of great new summer reads out now to help you make a sweet escape, even if it’s just in your mind. Grab your sunhat, a pina colada, and any of these books to create your own little paradise.
