Summer 2018 Poolside Reads
Thank you, Putnam, for our copy of this book. This is a beautifully written book that reads like poetry. The story begins with Micheal and Ellis at 12 years old. They are best friends and so much more. The story moves forward and we find Ellis is married to Annie and Micheal is no longer in the picture. What caused the rift? This is a beautiful and poignant book you will not soon forget.
Thank you to St. Martin’s press for our copy of this book. If you like a good thriller, this book is one of the most twisted psychological thrillers I have read. Finn and Layla are young and in love. They are in the car and stop at a rest stop when Layla disappears. Ten years later, Finn is engaged to Layla’s sister, Ellen. Suddenly, objects belonging to Layla start showing up and Finn receives a call that someone from his past has seen Layla. Expect the unexpected.
Thank you to Touchstone for this book. The New York dating scene is not the same as it was during the Sex in the City years. Tinder and other dating apps are taking over and matchmakers are back in fashion again. Sasha is a 20-something new matchmaker who seems to have it all until her romantic life implodes and she left trying to pick up the pieces. This Rom-Com is perfect for the beach.
Thank you to Simon Books for this book. Charlotte Walsh is a big-wig in Silicon Valley but she’s decided to come home to Pennsylvania to run for Senate. She has big plans and even bigger problems. This novel is both funny and poignant in how it showcases the struggles of a woman running for office. This is a great one for book clubs because there are so many different discussion topics.
Thank you, Touchstone for this book. Part romance and part tragedy, this book kept me turning the pages. What would you do to save someone that you loved? Would you say goodbye and travel into the future for the cure? This is such an original look at dystopia. It is very well written and keeps you reading.
