Last Chance: Summer's Must-Reads

Sure, school's almost back in session, but the kids don't have to be alone in hitting the books.

Although Labor Day marks the last hurrah for white pants, barbeques and kids up late on Sunday night, it is not the end of the season. Officially, until the clock strikes midnight on Sept. 21, it's still summer. And that means there's just enough time to squeeze in another good summer book atop your favorite lounge chair.

Not sure what to read? Fear not, we've cobbled together some bestsellers from The New York Times and Los Angeles Times, along with a few staff favorites from summers past. All you need to make your experience complete is a nice glass of iced tea or lemonade.

So many books, not enough time! But it doesn't have to be summer for me to read. I belong to Goodreads, and when I find a suggestion I always add it to my "to be read" list. That way I don't have to rely on my memory for the author/title. I'm tackling The Pillars of the Earth. It's a biggie and hard to hold, it's so heavy, but I am enjoying it!

Meant to add, Unbroken was amazing!
