    Summer Is Here, Baby, So We Want To Give You A Bunch Of The Season's Hottest Books

    Your summer just got a little more bookish.

    In case you didn't know, yesterday was ~officially~ the first day of summer! And, if you're a book lover like me, that means you probably have a whole list of books you want to read as you lounge by the pool/beach/lake/backyard.

    Dealer's choice, but either way I know you'll be posted somewhere with a good book.

    It's ALSO the first day of the BuzzFeed Books' Summer Reading Challenge, where we've chosen six fun categories for our readers to complete by the end of summer.

    A graphic detailing the challenge with categories: a book set during summer, a book with 250 pages or less, a SFF book by a BIPOC, a book with a food-themed title, a queer romance by a queer author, and a retelling

    That's three solid months of reading — are you up for it?

    To kick things off, we want to give ONE lucky winner a book bundle featuring six curated books from Bookshop, a tote to carry all your new books in, and a summery candle to set your reading ~mood.~

    The prizes: people we meet on vacation, infinite country, the gilded ones, crying in h mart, one last stop, the chosen and the beautiful, a tote bag that reads "just one more chapter with a book icon," and a candle scented with iced tea and books

    Yup, that's right! A tote, candle, and SIX books all hand-picked by our editors!

    All you have to do is enter for your chance to win and this book bundle could be yours!
