Top 3 Summer Reads

Summer, tan lines, margaritas, sand, and beachy salt infused hair. What’s missing in that picture? An amazing book.

 

Not just any book, one that grabs your attention and holds onto it until the very last page. Those kinds of books are the best beach/pool-side reads. The best way to spend a hot day on a sunbed or a round beach towel is of course in the company of a great book and company. Here is a list of 3 must-read novels that are completely under-rated yet oh so satisfying.

 

A Walk In the Park by Jill Mansel

 

This is not your typical chic-lit novel. A Walk In the Park is hilarious with smart female characters and a gripping plot full of romance, unexpected twists and one huge secret. The main protagonist is Lara, who ran away from her home town Bath 18 years ago to live with her aunt, has returned to her home town for her father’s funeral. Along the way she meets her ex-boyfriend whom Lara left without a word 18 years prior as well as he best-friend who is marrying the man of her dreams…for now.

 

The Dinner by Herman Koch

 

The Dinner’s plot is unraveled over one night at a dinner table in one of the top restaurants in Amsterdam. Two brothers and their wives meet to discuss some recent events that have happened within their family. They’re not there to catch up though, in fact, over the course of the book, we slowly uncover the hidden secrets and intrigues of the family. This is a novel that asks a difficult question, how far would you go to protect your loved ones? This is a great choice for people that like suspenseful character driven novels.

 

Swimming Home by Deborah Levy

 

This Man Booker Prize finalist is a highly atmospheric novel great for summer days. It takes place in the South of France where the family of a popular poet is spending their vacation. Upon arrival though a female body is discovered floating in the villa’s swimming pool. Suffice to say, Swimming Home is not your typical vacation novel. It is filled with curiosities and confusion, but it all makes sense at the end which is part of the appeal of this book.
