Best Books to Read this Memorial Day Weekend

Best Books to Read this Memorial Day Weekend

I've compiled a list of what I think would be some great kick-off to summer reads. These are easy and carefree or really get lost in type of books. Whatever tickles your fancy as a beach companion this weekend...or an escape from the tradition family barbeque. Find a tree to lean against, get comfortable and settle in to a good book.

Something Borrowed, Emily Giffin


The Other Typist, Suzanne Rindell

Fallen Too Far, Abbi Glines

The Perfume Collector, Kathleen Tessaro

The Summer I Turned Pretty, Jenny Han

The Edge of Never, J.A,Redmerski

The Other Typist is the one I'll be grabbing this weekend, since I've read most of the others. I hear The Other Typist is like Hitchcock meets Gatsby with the unbelieveable reviews it has received.

Another Summer Read to Consider...


CULTURE SHOCK is a witty tale of mystery and romance with a large helping of southern hospitality.
Macy Holmes is a seventeen-year-old socially-isolated introvert since her best friend's death a year ago. When her family decides to move from Manhattan to the quaint country town of Bougainvillea, Florida, Macy finds she's in a completely different world. Macy is no longer the outsider hiding behind designer clothes when she is sought out by three strange students, one of whom she is particularly interested in. The more time she spends with Chad the more things don't add up. When his true identity is finally revealed, Macy is pulled into a supernatural society with its saturation of inhabitants residing in Bougainvillea.
You would think she has enough on her plate, but no, then her dreams become infiltrated by an external magical force, Macy and her band of supernatural misfits must find the culprit behind the magic-induced nightmares. They must dodge zombie assassins, shifty shape-shifters and high school bullies in order to stop this perpetrator before Macy, her friends or her parents pay the ultimate price. Especially when Macy has the sneaking suspicion that these dreams are reality...
