While a lot of the things we look forward to every summer may no longer be exactly relevant anymore, we can at least rely on a slate of new books to help us get through the long days and hot nights ahead. Whether you're spending the season somewhere you can safely hang out by a body of water or know you're going to remain mostly indoors (in which case, definitely spend an afternoon or two reading in the bath), make sure to have at least one of these books by your side. Because, no matter what else is going on in the world, at least there's good stuff to read.
