Searching for sunny skies, good books

Is it summer in your world?

Here, on the Oregon Coast, we're in June-uary. It's 50 degrees and I'm still in sweaters and winter shoes. Despite gray skies and rain, the calendar has somehow turned to June. And because I crave lazy days with good books under sunny skies, I'm going out on a limb and calling it summer. 

Here's the start of my Summer Reading stack: 

The Lover's Dictionary, by David Levithan

Everything Beautiful Began After: A Novel by Simon Van Booy

The Beginner's Goodbye, by Ann Tyler

I'd like to expand my list. Novels, non-fiction, poems, short stories, I'm game for any and all. Any suggestions?

(Sheepish confession: I've read Fifty Shades of Grey. My no-brainer, all-hype, page-turner book quota has been fulfilled).

But enough about me, What are you reading this summer?


ps - I appreciate this Melancholy Summer Reading List by author Matt de la Pena.

And thanks to author Amber Keyser for introducing me to de la Pena's thoughtful New York Times essay.
