12 Books Set in the Summer to Read This Summer

I love reading but I always find it difficult to read for fun during the school year which breaks my bookworm heart. I take advantage of the summer months to read till my little heart is content. There's lots of summer reading lists but most of the books have 0% to do with summer. That's just fine for some, but as for me, I'm not doing anything exciting this summer so I need to read books that can aid me in imagining a fantastic summer. So, I decided to embark on a mission to discover some books that actually have to do with summer that weren't too extremely clique and generic. I did some digging on the depths of the internet and after reading through reviews and excerpts I dubbed these 12 books as the A team for The Summer Reading List of 2016. There's a wide variety of plots ranging from summer camp adventures to suspenseful murder mysteries. Take a peak and see if you can find something that excites your book loving heart.
