Summer Reads 2016

Sunday, May 29, 2016 0 No tags Permalink


As you know, I love to have a good book going. While I did get some reading done this winter (Kathleen Alcott’s Infinite Home; Jojo Moyes’ Me Before You and After You; Kate Morton’s Lake House; Christina Baker Kline’s Orphan Train; Paula Hawkins’ The Girl on the Train), I never get as much reading done as during my summer reads from Memorial Day through Labor Day. I wound up reading all eight books in 2015.

As always, I picked the books from The New York Times Bestseller list, my recommendations and Maureen Corrigan’s Best Books list for 2015.

Here is my Summer Reads 2016 list:

A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ishmael Beah

As Close to Us as Breathing: A Novel by Elizabeth Poliner

Hollow City: The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

The Last Painting of Sara de Vos: A Novel by Dominic Smith

Honeydew: Stories by Edith Pearlman

A Manual for Cleaning Women: Selected Stories by Lucia Berlin

The Light of the World: A Memoir by Elizabeth Alexander

Bettyville: A Memoir by George Hodgman
