No matter what you have planned for the summer — beach vacations, road trips, or lazy afternoons spent relaxing on the porch — you’ll want to have a great read on hand, and Amazon’s latest list of the best new books is the perfect place to find one.

Amazon recently revealed its top books to emerge this year, and the list is full of diverse finds you’ll want to read ASAP. The retailer’s top 10 picks include everything from fun fiction reads to cookbooks and moving memoirs, but here’s the best part — the list features tons of discounted books with markdowns up to 48 percent off retail prices.  

The book hub rounded up 10 great reads across the board, but also broke it down by category, making it easy to find something you’ll enjoy from its various departments like fiction, food, romance, young adult, memoirs, and more.
