Summer Reading Suggestions!

As Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial kick-off to summer (and that was a whole week ago!), I thought I would post some summer reading suggestions--brought to you by none other than the most fabulous readers ever: my Literary Masters book group members!  Here's wishing you all a wonderful summer--may you turn all the pages you wish to, both literally and figuratively!

In no particular order, enjoy these books this summer:

Life After Life by Kate Atkinson (there is another book by the same title written by a different author, which is supposed to be quite good, too)

Speedboat by Renata Adler

The Submission by Amy Waldman

A Hundred Flowers by Gail Tsukiyama

One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd by Jim Fergus

State of Wonder by Ann Patchett

11/22/63 by Stephen King

Enchantments: A novel of Rasputin's daughter and the Romanovs by Kathryn Harrison

Eleanor of Aquitaine: A Life by Alison Weir

The Lady in the Tower: The Fall of Anne Boleyn by Alison Weir

Dreams of Joy by Lisa See

Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan

Open City by Teju Cole

The Island at the Center of the World by Russell Shorto

Where'd You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple

Let me know if you read anything that is absolutely un-put-down-able!
