There's nothing better than sitting at the pool or on the patio on a nice summer day with a ice cold beverage and a great book in hand.

I actually enjoy the real deal books as opposed to the Kindle or Tablet option. There is something satisfying about the actual ink and paper, and turning the pages.

I plan to try out new authors or genres and expanding my reading list this year. I also love that my son enjoys reading so much that he can get sucked into a good read and fly through it in one weekend. His excitement in retelling the stories that he reads is adorable and makes me one happy mama.

Here is a preview list of the top 10 books to read this summer!
