5 Great Books For Your Summer Reading List!

What better way to avoid the killer heat this summer by staying indoors with a cool glass of lemonade and settling down with a great book! We've combined a list of books from different genres to make sure you get the best of everything, so knock yourself out!

1. Harry Potter And The Cursed Child by Jack Thorne

Although it might not be a novel and nor is it written by our beloved J.K Rowling, the announcement of this stage play was a dream come true for all Harry Potter fans worldwide! The play is set to air in London this summer, and the script of the play is to be released in a book form the very next day, i.e 31st July 2016. Knowing the crazy fan following of the Harry Potter series, it's easy to say that this is  probably the most awaited book of the year!

 Set 19 years ahead of the conclusion of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and based on the life of Harry and his youngest son Albus, this upcoming book just gives us Harry Potter lovers yet another reason to re-read the entire series again while we wait for the release!

2. Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee


Even though it was released last year, this novel should definitely be on your reading list for it's a sequel to the classic  'To Kill a Mockingbird'. Although it was written before To Kill a Mockingbird, this book was published last year and revolves around the life of the beloved characters of Atticus and Jean-Louise "Scout" Finch, who is now in her late 20s, and their complicated relationship as Jean sees her fathers work interfere with her view of his morals and tries to grasp the world and its cruelties.

3. The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg


Of course it's important to explore different genres, since reading is all about looking into a whole different world beyond yours! The Power of Habit is another best selling self-help book which looks into scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and why some people struggle to change them and some do not. The author makes his case by presenting entertaining stories and case studies. All in all, the book is an entertaining read and presents the readers with good advice, backed up by factual evidence, on how to change their bad habits and why. 

4. Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson


Who doesn't want to have an insight on the life of one of the smartest and  most successful men of our time? Written at the request of the man himself, based on over 40 interviews with him, and more than 100 interviews with his friends, family members colleagues etc, the book was released eleven days after the death of Jobs. Perhaps it was the timely release of the book that made it a hit, or simply
the brilliant writing as well as a detailed view of the life and achievements of Steve Jobs.

5. A Game Of Thrones: The Winds Of Winter by George R.R. Martin


Here's another one we can barely wait for! The sixth book of the series was set to release before it's season airs next month, but much to everyone's disappointment we were recently told that the great author has not yet completed it. So even though we have close to no idea when we will get to read this much awaited book, it should be on your reading list anyway for being super awesome!

A Game of Thrones has become a huge hit as a TV series as well as book series, with a great combination of fiction, action and thriller, these books have everything! While some are die hard fans of the show and others prefer the detail and thrill of the novels, it's close to impossible to not finish the series once you start, as well as anxiously wait for the next season/book!
