Summer is finally here, and with it comes our much-loved little catalogue. There is something undeniably special about the books you read over the summer and since your friends at Words Worth Books read A LOT we have curated and reviewed a unique selection of 18 of our very favourites. There are mysteries and thrillers for when those sudden summer storms roll in, or if you're in the passenger seat on that epic road trip, there's Canadiana and non-fiction to keep your brain busy. Are you looking for an escape? Maybe only as far as your own back yard with an icy cold drink? We have fantastical quests to unfamiliar worlds--tales of heroism, passion, and adventure, all of which are sure to keep you turning pages this season.
Get yours in the shop or peruse it at our webstore!
