Books celebrating Summer in the South


#Hot Days, Ice Tea, Cool Reads

Can you think of something more refreshing -- on a long, sweltering summer day in the South -- than sipping on a tall, icy-cold glass of satisfyingly sweet tea and reading that Carolina swamp-girl mystery everybody’s been talking about and you just can’t put down? Whether you’re alone (engaging in some much-needed self-care), beachside and pouring over the latest bestseller or you’re chatting about your next book club read with your bestie from the comfort of well-used front porch swing: Southern-style sweet tea and sizzling summer reads just go hand in hand. So, this Iced Tea Month enjoy this short list of cool classic and contemporary Summer/Southern reads.
