We might be a bit too old for summer reading programs*, but there's still something about this season that increases our (already ravenous) appetite for books. So take a tour of our TBR piles below, then hit us up in the comments with your own picks for the month.
*Or not! I recently found out that my library in Austin has a program for adults, which is rad (though sadly, I don't think stickers are involved). You should check your local library to see if they have something similar! Tricks ain't just for kids.
