Whether you're ready to get lost in a nail-biting thriller while soaking up rays at the park, sip on a fruity cocktail with a steamy rom-com in hand, or listen to a life-changing memoir on audiobook during a long road trip, these 20 summer-themed prompts will challenge you to expand your reading horizons for this season of sunny days and poolside lounging. Oh yeah, and don't forget to have fun! It's summer, remember? You get an A+ for participation!
