On My List: Things You Should Read In Warm Weather

on my list 2

 

I would say Things You Should Read In Spring, but spring is really just a concept here. The calendar means nothing. We go from “Brr!” to “Ugh, the humidity!” Whatever. Longer days mean more sunlight in which to read. The question is what do you read when you free your toes from the tyranny of boots and let them bathe in the sunshine? What do you take with you to the deck with your cup of tea?

Maybe I can help. Here are some books that make me think of warm, sunny days.

  • Jane of Lantern HIll by LM Montgomery. I could have picked any number of Montgomery books here, but this one spoke to me most. The fresh, clean air of Prince Edward Island is good for what ails you, especially if you are a neglected girl from Toronto visiting your father.

I just realized all these books are by women. Maybe that’s why they speak to me like they do.  These books are good for the time before you’re sprawled out on the beach and too hot to think.

What are your favorite warm weather books?

  1. I feel like a bad Canadian that I didn't realize there were all of these other series by Montgomery. Geez Louise. I grew up on Anne but didn't know there was an Emily until a few years ago and now there's a Jane?? My parents clearly did not do their job.

    1. This is one of her stand-alones. She wrote a few of those too and a lot of short stories. One of my favorites is The Blue Castle. So good!

  2. I believe I own The Summer Book but I don't believe the cover looks as charming as the one you shared here :)

    1. I was from the library so I'm not sure what edition it is. The book is so, so lovely though!

  3. Huge yes to Jane of Lantern Hill. I'm always excited to see L.M. Montgomery's lesser-known books getting some love.
