The lazy days of Summer have arrived, so whether your plans involve laying by the pool with a cocktail in hand or cosying up on the sofa with a cup of tea, we’ve rounded up the perfect books to match your vibes (rain or shine!). Scroll on down to discover our Summer reads for every mood; your TBR isn’t going to know what hit it!

You read to: escape reality

We’re hopping on the Fourth Wing bandwagon this Summer! If you grew up reading Harry Potter, you’ll love this Romantasy by Rebecca Yarros; pure adult fantasy escapism, with added dragons and a sprinkling of spice.  

You read to: fall in love

If Emily Henry’s Happy Place isn’t wedged into your suitcase this Summer, you’re packing all wrong! Get ready to have your heartstrings well and truly plucked. Emily can do no wrong; this is also her steamiest book to date; just saying… 

You read to: be inspired

The Only Woman in the Room is based on the incredible true story of Hedy Lamarr, a 1940s glamour icon and scientist who revolutionised modern communication; 'A feminist page-turner that reads like a thriller' - Mail on Sunday. Part biopic, part novel, it’s the perfect story to get swept up in this Summer.

You read to: expand your horizons

In 21 Lessons for the 21st Century Yuval Noah Harai explores what it means to be human in the 21st century. The Times called him The great thinker of our age.And his books are incredibly thought-provoking, if you want to get out of your comfort zone and plunge into existentialism, this is the book for you!

You read to: scare yourself silly 

Because apparently, if there’s one thing we can’t resist, it’s unnecessarily freaking ourselves out on long Summer evenings. The Stalker by Sarah Alderson will have you hooked right from the start; we’re talking edge of your seat, heart in your throat, heart-pounding suspense here. If fluffy Summer reads aren’t your idea of a good time, this is the complete opposite, just don’t read it when you’re on your own in the house… 

Bonus: it’s free with KU.

You read to: …well, actually listening is more your thing 

Audible is our best friend when it comes to multitasking! And one of our fave Audible Original authors is releasing her second book on August 17th. Told You So by Leeanne Slade follows Lucie whose psychic told her she’ll meet The One at a wedding in Spain. It’s a super fun Summer romp, perfect for popping in your ears poolside! 

Bonus: It’s free with your audible subscription.

You read to: get that serotonin hit 

The Canadian Cowboy Queen Elsie Silver’s final book in the Chestnut Springs series is set for release on October 13th, so what better way to spend your lazy Summer days than by catching up on the 4 other books! With guaranteed happily ever afters in every single one; if they don’t make you smile, we’ll eat our cowboy hats. 

Bonus: They’re all free with KU.

You read to: find out what the hype is about 

If you’ve not heard of Yellowface, where have you been; R F Kuang’s amazing cover has been splashed all over our social media feeds the past couple of months! Described as a ‘satire of the publishing industry and brazen exploration of cancel culture’, reviewers have called it ‘savage’ and ‘hilarious’, and we were instantly sold. This one’s at the top of our Summer reading list, we just have to see what all the hype is about!

Hopefully that's given you plenty to pile up on your Summer TBR stack! Got any more burning recommendations to add? We’d love to hear them; share your thoughts with us on social! Don't forget to check out our ways to savour the summer, whilst we have it.
