Great Summer Reads to Binge in Bed
One of the best parts of summer is the summer reading list – be it at the beach, in a hammock, or even in your best comfortable bed – we all compile ambitious lists in June that are rarely finished by August. But that’s part of the fun of summer. We here at NECTAR love to be comfy and love a good book, so we thought we’d help add to your list. Here are some great books to try that are fun, move fast, and work well in any setting. So what are you waiting for? Pick these up and curl up in NECTAR’s best comfortable bed. Yes, it means you might have to put Harry Potter down and not read it for the millionth time, but look on the bright side! You may find a new favorite in this bunch.
This One is Mine by Maria Semple
Maria Semple is a former television writer (Arrested Development) who brings her acerbic wit and zany attitude to any project she touches. This manners novel revolves around a Los Angeles family and their attempts to navigate the infamous LA social scene. This is a must for anyone who watched AD or who digs LA music history. Funny, but never devolving into pettiness, Semple is the perfect writer for a fun jaunty read while curling up on the best comfortable bed.
Habibi by Craig Thompson
This is a stunning graphic novel written and drawn by Craig Thompson. Think windswept plains and beautiful Moroccan cityscapes. Blankets helped reimagine what a graphic novel could be. The story focuses on two lovers in the seventh century who are torn apart by circumstance and time. They are reunited with ever-growing complications. At over 600 pages, this is a rainy day book. So grab some peanut butter crackers, hop up on that best comfortable bed. Listen to the rain patter above you. There’s no better way to spend an afternoon.
Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
A beautiful book for hot summer nights. Adiche probes the depth of the human heart in an achingly delicate prose that flows like an evening breeze over your best comfortable bed. Americanah explores what it means to be an immigrant, a lover, and above all else a human being in the twenty first century. Here is a book to savor, wrapped in clean sheets, a soft candle light flickering from the nightstand. So there you have it, our summer reads. And speaking of instant classics, check out a NECTAR mattress if you’re looking to become acquainted with a life changing mattress. It truly is the best comfortable bed, whether you’re using it to read or sleep on. Happy reading!
