The golden color scheme instantly makes me think of the summer. It also helps that the book is set in San Francisco.

4. Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

Most of the covers of Gone With the Wind feature a golden or multi-colored sky and a booming plantation that evoke the romantic feeling of summer.

3. Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

The ice cream. The shades. The title. What more can I say?

What goes better with summer than ice cream? Baseball of course! The quintessential baseball novel, The Natural takes place over of the summer, and the baseball on the cover makes me think of the hot season.
