One thing I love about the good weather in the summer is that I get to read more. It doesn't make up for the fact that I'm not drawing or painting as much as I'd like. But it feels good all the same.
And if you're still looking for a good summer read, I'd recommend you try "The Light Between Oceans" by M.L. Stedman. A beautiful story set in Western Australia after World War I. A story of a Lighthouse, its keepers, the sea, and what it brings. A story of right and wrong, where your head tells you it's so wrong, but your heart tells you it feels so right. I cried at the end.
Unless you'd rather wait for the movie, with Michael Fassbender!
