What genre I like to read during the summer

So the question today: What genre do you like to read during the summer?

I am a big fan of reading any time of year, and I read a lot of different genres, but during the summer I love a good beach romance! Books full of sun, sand, and blossoming romance are a ton of fun for me!

Most summers we go to the beach, even if it’s just for a long weekend, so I love to pack up several books that I’ve been saving just for vacation! Lots of fun and easy romance for me.

I recently wrote an article with the newest batch of beach books coming out this summer. If you’d like to read the article and maybe download the list of beach books, you can find it here: Summer Beach Reading Guide

My all-time favorites are cozy mysteries. I love the friendly atmosphere those books create around me with every novel. Sometimes I go for thrillers and psychological mysteries. But for summer, cozy it is for me.

I love reading mysteries and thrillers any time of year. In the summer months, I tend to read more romance and chick-lit though. Quick, easy reads.

Cozy mysteries or chick-lit for the summer, I like nice easy reads that I devour and read a ton of.

Since I read cozies and Romance all year around, I don’t choose specific genres during Summer. But I avoid Winter-themed books and lean more towards stories with vacations, or set on islands or in other nice places.

Maybe my life would be easier if I seasonalized what I read. My only exception is Tolkien. I read from The Silmarillion to Return of the King every January. However, I do tend to read Roberts in the summer just because they are easy reads for me. Not that they are simplistic mind you, they just let me slip into the world and the characters so easily.

  1. I have to read a lot especially during the summer. When my step-boys are here, they are always gaming or in the pool so I would get VERY bored otherwise.

  2. I love romance novels, but when the kids are home for the summer, I feel a little odd sitting there reading sexy scenes when they are mere feet away from me. I’ll usually switch to mystery or thriller novels when they are home.

  3. I always like to read something adventurous or something that kind of deals with traveling somewhere new. I’m not really sure why I like those types of books around the summer time!

    1. Beach, sun, travelling… definitely the sort of books that grab my attention in the summer months. I find it feels odd to read books set in winter with snow etc… when I’m at the beach with warm sunshine. Just doesn’t feel right.
