I probably will not complete "read in a boat, tent, or cabin," "favorite re-read," or "read on vacation" simply because time isn't going to facilitate me having a vacation where reading is a thing nor really the time to re-read anything in the near future (actually, I should have put Princess Bride as a re-read).  "Summer word in title" is possible, I have the ARC of Summerlong by Peter S. Beagle and there's always a chance a book I read will have a horrible cover.
