A few weeks back, we did it. We reached the end of our Netflix must-see list and stared into the abyss that is 24 hours of reruns, Guy Fieri and Food TV. Sensing my predicament, my wife suggested that I revisit books.

While a reader, I am in no way in her category of easily 2 books a week. So I asked, What Should I Read? Below are her top picks for great summer reads to help you escape the stressful time in which we find ourselves. Each book as a one-two sentence summary …. a Cliff Notes version for people not inclined to read Cliff Notes.

Top 5 Summer Reading Picks

American Dirt is about
Story of Mexican families escaping drug cartel to America, strong female characters.


My Dark Vanessa is great but controversial. 15 year old girl has affair with her teacher.


Eight Perfect Murders was a murder mystery in New England with major twists.


Favorite new book for you
The Guest List by Lucy Foley.
Celebrity wedding on an Irish island with a murder. Read it in almost one day!


In Five Years by Rebecca Serle
What if you saw yourself in five years and was shocked- could you change your path?

Bonus Pick

While I also, really enjoyed Eight Perfect Murders – that’s right, I read 2 books – , my pick for top Summer pick goes to The Splendid and The Vile by Erik Larson. Larson is the writer of Isaac’s Storm and devil in The White City so I was anxiously awaiting this last release. I was not disappointed as it is a great illustration of leadership during incredibly stressful times.
