There’s nothing more delightful than Summer Fridays. They’re fun, they’re unexpected, and it really feels like you’re getting away with something by not going into the office. But what are you going to do with all that extra free time? At Quirk Books, we believe the best Summer Friday is a bookish Summer Friday. Here are four of our favorite books that can (and should) be read in one gorgeous day.

Over the past sixteen years, we’ve seen contestants on the popular reality series Survivor head to remote islands, the Australian outback, the African savannah, Borneo, Fiji, and more to battle it out in “tribes.” With a million dollars on the line and absolutely zero creature comforts (unless you win challenges), tempers being to fly and the claws come out. The contestants have to figure out not only how to survive the wilderness, but how to survive each other!
