10 Must-Read Books for June 2016

Summer: it's not ALL trashy beach reading, y'know. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)

There has never been much truth to the argument that June is a month of throwaway “beach books” (trash notwithstanding); in reality, it’s one of the finer months on the literary calendar, especially because it’s one of the only moments with variety (considering publishers are clambering to release the same kinds of books). This June, we’ve got interesting political sci-fi, a multi-million dollar debut, the year’s best anthology, and much of the most interesting nonfiction to be released in 2016. Take that to the beach. — Jonathon Sturgeon, Literary Editor
