Our Summer Reading Recommendations
1. Here’s to Us by Elin Hilderbrand
What would summer be without Elin Hilderbrand? Think it’s a lot of fluff? Think again. Her characters are like us: complicated people with complicated lives. Not only that but reading Hilderbrand–you can smell the ocean and taste the lobster. No one does it better.
2. First Comes Love by Emily Giffin
Another witty, fast-paced offering from Emily Giffin who, as usual, pulls us inside the human heart. Two sisters, as different as day and night, who grapple with life and each another. Heart-felt and smart, Griffin hits her stride…again.
3. Before the Fall by Noah Hawley
Hot and listless? It’s August, after all, and Hawley’s book is just the ticket: a heart-pounding, nerve-wracking thrill of a suspense novel. So crack it open and get ready for the roller coaster ride of the season.
4. Madly, Truly Guilty by Liane Moriarty
You’ve never read Moriarty? What have you done with your life? Now’s your chance to pick up her newest, a dizzying suspense novel. If you have read Moriarty, you’ll know exactly what kind of fun you’re in for. So take a deep breath…and take the plunge.
5. Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War by Mary Roach
She’s been called our “funniest science writer” by the Washington Post, but don’t be fooled. Roach packs her books with solid information about how scientists have been working to make combat safer for our men and women. Read this!
6. The Gene: An Intimate History by Siddhartha Mukherjee
And now for something serious: a thoroughly compelling detective story about genetics: what we know and what we don’t. Mukherjee’s lucid prose makes for an irresistible read–and think how smart you’ll be once you finish.
We Wish You Happy Reading & a Wonderful
Rest of Summer!
