I imagine most of you guys have had this experience before: You start with a nice novel or poetry collection and about 10% in realize you'd be enjoying yourself far more if you waited until the proper season. For me it's mostly really bleak or oppressive books, which I like to read in summer, and Victorian novels, which are strictly winter fare.
>Pale King and Remainder are strong spring books
>Jude The Obscure should be read in winter
>Sabbath's Theater and Bell Jar are for summer only
Are summer books a thing that exists or is it just in my head? Do you have any examples of your own?
