Summer is right around the corner, which means it’s time for my favorite activity — making lists of all the books I want to read during the summer!

Now that I have children, it’s such fun for me to make up lists for them as well and work our way through the books together. It’s a delight to gather new titles and old favorites, buy our own copies or check them out from the library, and then enjoy them over and over and over again during the hot summer months — whether on our porch swing, a beach towel, or with a popsicle in hand.

Making summer reading lists also helps make sure that books become a part of our summer memories — when the season ends and we return to a more regular schedule, we can open any of the books from our summer reading list and instantly be reminded of those lazy summer days.

Here are the books going on our summer reading list this year:
