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 Nightengaleis a wartime novel about two sisters and their roles in World War II.
