Our friends on the WIRED Gear team say Memorial Day is the time to snag deals on cool tech or fire up the barbecue. But we here at WIRED Culture think this weekend marks the start of something else: summer reading season. Sure tossing a ball or frisbee is fun, but wouldn’t you rather spend your beach days lost in a good book? If you said yes to that question, you’re in the right place. To help you on your reading journey, we’ve collected a slew of titles that offer everything you need this summer, from existential crises to queer magic. Time to dive in.
