5 Best Books to Read by Your Pool This Summer

Summer equals swimming, barbecues, picnics, and long weekends full of relaxation. There’s nothing more relaxing than sitting down to read by your pool. Here are our top book recommendations to read by the pool this summer. We’ve chosen a few of our favorites, but you can check out the full list here.

‘Ask Again, Yes’ by Mary Beth Keane

When two young New York City policeman become neighbors, their families become intertwined — particularly two of their children, Kate and Peter. But when a violent event rocks the neighborhood, Kate and Peter are thrown apart. Years later, the two reconnect and must grapple with their love story and the events of the past.

‘The Confessions of Frannie Langton’ by Sara Collins

Frannie Langton is on trial, accused of the murder of her employer and his wife. She claims she can’t remember the events of that night, but she does have a story to tell anyway — one about her journey from the Jamaican plantation where she spent her childhood to the London home where she allegedly committed the most heinous of crimes.

‘Rules For Visiting’ by Jessica Francis Kane

May is better suited to being alone. She prefers her garden to people, and she keeps everyone at arms-length. But when she’s unexpectedly granted leave from her job, she sets out to reconnect with four friends from her past.

‘Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me’ by Mariko Tamaki, illustrated by Rosemary Valero-O’Connell

Laura Dean might be the most popular girl in school, but she is certainly not the best girlfriend to Frederica Riley. Even so — despite the warnings of friends, family, and even a medium — Freddy can’t seem to say goodbye to Laura.

‘Red, White & Royal Blue’ by Casey McQuiston

When Alex, the charismatic son of the U.S. president, and Henry, the prince of Wales, get into an on-camera beef that makes tabloid headlines, their families (and their heads of state) concoct a plan to mend foreign relations by forcing the men to “fake” a friendship.

These books are great anywhere, but it is definitely more fun to read by your pool! If you’re not already a swimming pool owner, come check out our stunning showroom.
