While I’ve been reading off and on this past winter (A Spool of Blue Thread: A novel by Anne Tyler, First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen and all three books on My Sad Cat), I never get as much reading done as during my Summer Reads project. It is a true hedonistic endeavor…I pick eight or so books to read from Memorial Day through Labor Day. I generally pick my books from Amazon.com recommendations, the New York Times Bestseller list and book reviews by NPR’s Maureen Corrigan.
These are the titles I’m planing on reading this summer:
What Comes Next and How to Like It: A Memoir by Abigail Thomas
The Bone Clocks: A Novel by David Mitchell
American Ghost: A Family’s Haunted Past in the Desert Southwest by Hannah Nordhaus
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
All the Light We Cannot See: A Novel by Anthony Doerr
Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline
The Wishing Thread: A Novel by Lisa Van Allen
The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters
What are you reading this summer?
