5 Summer 2016 Reading Lists for Your Enjoyment

Going away for vacation or planning a staycation right in your backyard? These summer reading lists might provide the inspiration you need to read, and get away with a little intellectual stimulation.

  1. Essence’s 2016 Summer Reading List has a number of wonderful gems, including Kimberla Lawson Roby’s  A Sinful Calling: A Reverend Curtis Black Novel 
  2. The Root has a dedicated summer reading list for young adults, but many of the books listed are good for all adults. Share the list with the young people in your life too.
  3. Interested in Latin culture and Latino authors? This list provided by NBC News could be right up your alley.
  4. Got money, business, and investments on your mind? Well, J. P. Morgan Bank has a list for their wealthy clientele that you can access online.
  5. CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Company) has a summer reading list that contains a number of bestselling books in the U.S.A.


I would be remiss if I didn’t include the 2016 releases from my fellow Brown Girls Publishing.

And if none of the above suffices, then visit Goodreads.com for a search through the countless reader lists on their site. https://www.goodreads.com/list/tag/summer
