School’s out, books open! Summer is the perfect season to settle into your TBR and binge through those books that’ve been piling up for the last few months. In the spirit of reading literally everything you can, we’re so excited to team up with Barnes & Noble and help bring you the ultimate list of bingeworthy summer books!!
So that you can schedule in all this summer binge reading, we sat down and did the math. Seriously. Can you imagine us, book nerd extraordinaires, sitting here and doing calculations?! We hope so, because, you guys, we really did it. We took the estimated page count of every book and the speed of an average reader and came up with just how long it would take to finish all the books below in one sitting. Some of them were actually really surprising.
Are you ready to test your knowledge? Take our ultimate summer binge reading quiz below, and also start building that TBR! You can find the below in your local store, and if you find them, be sure to snap a shelfie! We’d love to see and hear what you’re binging this summer.
