To say that the summer days here get hot would be an understatement — which is why it is almost a necessity for every Phoenix, Arizona apartment complex to include a pool. But here at Element Deer Valley, we go beyond one and offer instead four amazing resort-style pools for our residents to lounge in and alongside. So grab a towel and enjoy a dip, and once you're ready to cool off, consider reading one of the following top summer reads:
4 Must-Read Summer Books Perfect for Poolside Reading
- Vintage 1954 by Antoine Lauraine (Translation by Emily Boyce). This has just about all the ingredients one could want in a light yet engaging summer novel: Paris backdrop, wine, clever dialogue, and time travel. It has its funny moments and charm with characters you can't help but fall in love with.
- The Perfect Fraud by Ellen LaCorte. Enjoy page-turners? Then you'll love this adventurous novel that has a setting right here in Arizona. This is another fun and light read, must-have elements for beach and poolside reading, but with mystery and two women setting out to right the wrongs.
- City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert. Did you love Eat, Pray, Love and The Signature of All Things? Then you'll love this next sure-to-be-bestseller by Elizabeth Gilbert and freshly released just in time for summer. This novel is about glamour and adventure through both the viewpoint of a young woman and that same, wiser woman years after looking back, remembering and reminiscing.
- The Stationery Shop by Marjan Kamali. This is another newly released novel and one that is already being hailed as a romance on par and by some reviewers even better than the much beloved The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks. So if what you're looking for is a good romance, a good drama, and a good overall tale to read between pool cool-off sessions, then this just might be the perfect summer reading pick for you.
