If you, like me, are still a little wary about leaving your house this summer, I’d live to provide you with some summer reading recommendations.

Because life has been just generally overwhelming because… Well, everything… I’ve really increased the amount of escapism in my life. I’ve read 20 books so far this year, and 12 of them have been sci-fi or fantasy.

So, without much further explanation other than “need escape from real life, here are books that do that” here are 9 books I recommend to take up your summer.

These are all books I give 5 out of 5 stars to. There’s some reimagined America, some space travel, clones, robots, and witches.
