Frame of mind's guide to summer reading

The days of lazying by the pool are upon us and it's time to get that summer check list ticked off.

We bet you already pur­chased the hippest sum­mer bikini/​bathing trunks back when the snow was still stick­ing to the path in an effort to get your­self excit­ed for the onset of sun­shine. But apart from the con­ven­tion­al sum­mer must haves like: a great tow­el, a bronzed lover and an excel­lent moji­to recipe, it’s easy to for­get the need for a fan­tas­tic sum­mer read. We’ve nar­rowed down our top four books to shade your­self with this summer!
