What is on your summer reading list?
EZEKIEL BOONE (The Hatching, 7/5/16):
My summer reading list includes Joe Hill’s The Fireman, Hidden Bodies, which is Caroline Kepnes’ follow-up to You, and Carrie, by Stephen King, which I’ve never read. I’m also working my through the John Connolly Charlie Parker mysteries again. There’s also the chance I’ll be the last person in the world to read The Girl on the Train.
BTW....YOU AREN'T THE LAST ONE TO READ THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN...I ALSO HAVEN'T READ IT YET. :)
SARAH PEKKANEN (The Perfect Neighbors, 7/5/16):
Topping the list are my favorites – Jennifer Weiner, Emily Giffin, Jodi Picoult – and I’m also going to read Eleanor Brown’s new novel The Light of Paris. It’s her first book since The Weird Sisters, and I’ve been eagerly awaiting it.
MATTHEW BETLEY (Overwatch, 3/1/16):
I’m going to finish Doctor Sleep and then start Harlan Coben’s Fool Me Once. If I’m lucky, I’ll then read James Rollins’ The Bone Labyrinth.
LIZ FENTON AND LISA STEINKE (The Year We Turned Forty, 4/26/16):
There are so many fabulous books coming this summer! We’re excited about Sarah Pekkanen’s THE PERFECT NEIGHBORS; Emily Giffin’s FIRST COMES LOVE; Allison Winn Scotch’s IN TWENTY YEARS; Jen Lancaster’s BY THE NUMBERS and Jane Green’s FALLING and Taylor Jenkins Reid’s ONE TRUE LOVES.
M.J. ROSE (The Secret Language of Stones, 7/19/16):
Steve Berry’s The 14th Colony, Jessie Burton’s The Muse, and Beatriz Williams’ A Certain Age.
