We've been lucky enough to have weeks and weeks of warm, sunny weather to enjoy, and we're looking at more ahead of us.
As we set off on holidays, spend days on the beach, take our lunch breaks out in the sunshine and watch the sun set late at night, it's nice to remember some of our favourite quotes about the summer.
Books provide a wonderful service in that they put into words the feelings that we often can't quite articulate ourselves; like the optimism that summer brings.
Here's some bookish words to keep those summer vibes going...
-John Steinbeck, The Winter of our Discontent
-F Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
-Jenny Han, The Summer I Turned Pretty
-Jeanette Walls, The Glass Castle
-Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
-Junot Diaz, This is How You Lose Her
-Benjamin Alire Sáenz, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
-Lisa Schroeder, I Heart You, You Haunt Me
-Evelyn Waugh, Brideshead Revisited
-Haruki Murakami, Dance, Dance, Dance
-L.M. Montgomery, Anne's House of DreamsIf you're looking for something to do on these long summer days, we are waiting with open arms (and full shelves!). Read about our Summer events here.
