Summer is the best time to do what you really like to do. The weather is nice, people seem happier and the atmosphere is generally more relaxed.
Something that I really love doing - not just in the summer but always - is reading. Books are my escape from this crazy mixed-up world that we live in!
So in the summer, I particularly enjoy reading outside in the sun, drink in hand. And I think you would too.
So I’ve listed down some of my all-time favourite reads that I think are interesting and a great way to spend a lazy summer’s day!
