What To Read This Summer

What To Read This Summer

Reading has always been a huge part of my life – some of my fondest childhood vacation moments were stopping at a local bookstore before we went over the bridge to Cape Cod – and picking out a handful of Nancy Drew mysteries to read on the beach. Below is a list of books I’d like to recommend – I had the pleasure of meeting each of the authors at some literary events over the past few months, with the exception of Georgia Hunter – and I guess that kind of influenced my picks!


The Woman In The Window

by A.J. Finn
This “Hitchcock-like” psychological thriller took me a while to get into and some things were slightly predictable, but I’ll be honest – I was captivated until the surprising end. A.J.’s debut novel has been highly recommended and already in development as a film starring Amy Adams!

If you liked Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl” you’ll like this!


We Were The Lucky Ones

by Georgia Hunter
Based on the Kurc family and tracing back to World War II, this book was written by a young local writer, which is what originally drew me to it – and l love stories that intertwine history with a “real” story.

If you liked Anthony Doerr’s “All the Light We Cannot See” you’ll like this!


The Family Next Door

by Sally Hepworth
Written by Australian author Sally Hepworth, this book takes place in a small, perfect town in her native country. Essie seemingly has the perfect life, however when a new neighbor moves in, some shocking secrets come to light.

If you liked Liane Moriarty’s “Big Little Lies” you’ll like this!


When Katie Met Cassidy

by Camille Perri
Truth be told, I have not read this yet – but had the privilege of meeting the author at a recent event and recently finished her debut novel, The Assistants, which I highly recommend. This novel is touted as “a romantic comedy about gender and sexuality, and the importance of figuring out who we are in order to go after what we truly want.”

If you liked André Aciman’s “Call Me By Your Name” you’ll like this!


That Kind Of Mother

by Rumaan Alam
Despite some not so great reviews, I decided to give this book a try, and though I tend to agree with some of the negative comments, I’m glad I stuck with it. Most impressive is that it is written by a man and he truly captured the challenges of motherhood, race and family.

If you liked Camron Wright’s “The Orphan Keeper” you’ll like this!


The Beach House

by Jane Green
I had to choose a good “beach book” from one of my favorite authors and felt this was fitting! When 65 year old Nan decides she needs to save her Nantucket home, she comes up with an unconventional way of doing so. This book has a little of everything – drama, family and mystery.

If you liked Elin Hilderbrand’s “The Identicals” you’ll like this!


I hope these suggestions encourage you to grab a book, sit on a beach (or not…) and enjoy a good read this summer!
