Whether you are out at the beach or lazing by the pool, summer is the perfect time to catch up on reading. I usually read a wide swath to keep my brain occupied and happy. As I have gotten older, I have found less and less time to read, but my book pile keeps growing. I am trying to finish that pile sooner rather than later.
Below are my five recommendations perfect for vacations or lazy summer afternoons.
1. A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
A Man Called Ove was so good, I bought it and finished it within 6 hours. A grumpy old man is trying to die in peace, but he keeps getting interrupted by his new neighbors.
2. The Nightengale by Kristin Hannah
If you have a sister, this novel will make you cry. The Nightengale is a wartime novel about two sisters and their roles in World War II.
3. Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernov
4. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
5. The Girl with all the Gifts by M. R. Carey
Let me know what you think of my recommendations @ac11215; I would love to know what you think!
