Our friends and colleagues over on the Gear team love to say that Memorial Day weekend is a time to snag a bunch of deals on cool tech, or fire up the barbecue. But we here at WIRED Culture think this weekend marks the start of something else: summer reading season. Sure tossing a ball or frisbee is fun, but wouldn’t you rather spend your beach days lost in a good book? If you’re the type of person who said “yes,” to this question, then you’re in the right place. To help you on your summer reading journey, we’ve collected a slew of titles below sure to give you everything you need in the coming months—from existential crises to queer magic. Time to dive in.
