Whether relaxing on the beach, vacationing with your family or enjoying a quiet evening in, Wisconsin summer weather provides the perfect backdrop for enjoying a good book.
And not just any book. Summers are meant for blockbusters, for thrillers, for books that capture your attention and won’t let go.
Not sure where to start? Head down to your local library and check out a thriller like
“If I Die Tonight” by Alison Gaylin. Featuring plenty of mystery and characters such as a police officer with a tragic past and a misfit high school teen, this book is perfect for fans of the popular Netflix series "Stranger Things."Richie Zaborowske Photo courtesy of Richie Zaborowske
Want to learn while you’re being entertained? How about a non-fiction book that reads like a thriller?
“Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI” by David Grann is this summer’s true-crime must read. Learn about the FBI’s first undercover case that unraveled a conspiracy that is almost too chilling to believe. Not for the faint of heart!
Do you enjoy well written historical fiction? You may want to read Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jennifer Egan’s latest book,
“Manhattan Beach.” Set during the industrious manufacturing landscape of New York during World War II, “Manhattan Beach” tells the story of Anna and her journey to become the first woman diver at the local Navy Yard. Featuring a glimpse into the criminal underworld, a strong central female character and a bit of tragic romance, this book reads much like an Oscar-winning film.
Or take a trip back to 1939 with
“Before We Were Yours” by Lisa Wingate. Based on real-life events of an adoption agency that kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families, this book will keep you turning the pages to find out if it ends in tragedy or redemption.
Are you a fan of the hit NBC show “This is Us?” Then you must read the 2017 National Book Award winner
“Far from the Tree” by Robin Benway. This young-adult novel features the stories of three different teenage siblings who were separated at birth. Find out what happens when they meet each other and try to reconcile with their past.
Looking for something epic? Brandon Sanderson is making huge waves in the fantasy genre. Check out the beginning of his Stormlight Archive series with
“The Way of Kings.” With three books, out of a planned 10 to be published, and plenty of other excellent titles already written (“Mistborn: the Final Empire” is a must read,) Sanderson’s work should keep you entertained all summer long.
The latest dystopian best seller,
“The Power” by Naomi Alderman, envisions an alternate reality in which women suddenly develop the power to blast lightning from their hands. Destined to become a television hit, much like “The Handmaid’s Tale,” Alderman’s book is an ideal choice for readers who enjoy intellectual speculative fiction.
Don’t want to commit to an entire book? Check out National Book Award winning author James McBride’s new collection of short stories
“Five-Carat Soul.” McBride’s imaginative tales will take you on a rollicking good ride and are short enough to fit into even the busiest schedules.
Finally, if you’re traveling this summer, make sure to visit your local library and grab a handful of audiobooks. Perfect for those long hours on the road, audiobooks are a great way to keep the whole family entertained. If you’re looking for even more book recommendations, contact your local library. A librarian can help you find the perfect book for summer reading season.
