I was challenged to write this little intro bit without mentioning the weather or the beach. And so I won’t. Instead, let’s talk about another summer spent under the pandemic’s cloche. No, actually, let’s not do that. Where were we? Right: introducing our annual summer reads feature. So, here it is, a stellar mix of can’t-miss personal recs from our staff and dozens of titles our reviews editors think should be on your radar for the season ahead.
We have picks for readers of all stripes and ages, whether you’re after a poolside treat, something to expand your horizons, or maybe a bit of both. Take a look!
