Whether you plan to spend the summer lounging around by the pool or staying cool indoors, there's nothing like a good book to keep you company.
Money has teamed up with bookseller Dymocks to come up with nine books that we think would make great reading this summer - everything from a guide to financial success to works of fiction.
All the books featured have been released in the past 18 months and fall into one of three categories: personal finance; business success/inspirational; and fiction.
To start off the summer on a good note, Dymocks is giving away one copy of each of the nine books we have reviewed to one lucky Money reader.
