Hot Reads in the Good Old Summertime: 20 Genre Fiction Pleasures

Never

What better way to enjoy a summer day than by diving into the pleasures of genre fiction? Here to help you find your next genre read are members of the American Library Association’s Reading List Council, who annually present their picks for the best in genre fiction. They found a crop of dark and chilling tales to contrast with the sunny weather outside as well as some fun beach reads. The eight genres the council currently considers include adrenaline titles (suspense, thrillers, and action adventure), fantasy, historical fiction, horror, mystery, romance, sf, and women’s fiction. The list below pairs each 2013 release with an older read-alike. Whether you choose one of the new books or one of the backlist read-alikes, you’re sure to find a perfect summer title.
