RAD Summer Reads // 2019

Summer is the sweetest time for reading— it stays light out longer, our calendars are more free, we have beach trips and poolside weekends and flights to new places… and we need good books more than ever. There are a million summer reading guides out there (some awesome and some not so much!) but I thought it would be fun to share a handful of my all-time favorites that I think make for excellent summer reading. All books included here were 4 or 5-star reads for me, so they come with my highest praise! (Affiliate links are included too, but they won’t cost you a cent more.)

If you want to print out the list and track your reading this summer, click the button below to grab the PDF (with a handy bookmark too!)

Be sure to use #radsummerreads on Instagram if you read any of these (and tag @alltheradreads!) — can’t wait to see what you grab and what you love! Happy summer reading, friends!
