Summer is the perfect time to unwind with a good book. Do you know what your next summer read is? A mystery that keeps you up at night? A novel that transports you to other places and times? An insightful nonfiction work? The Library staff has teamed up to help you select your next great summer read. We hope that some of our favorite reads become yours!

Perhaps you’re itching to read some award-winning fiction. If so, you may want to check out titles such as Anthony Doerr’s All the Light that We Cannot See, Eleanor Catton’s The Luminaries, Madeleine Thien’s Do Not Say We Have Nothing, or Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Americanah: A Novel

Or maybe non-fiction is more your speed. If so, consider picking up Simon Winchester’s The Professor and the Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity, and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary. Perhaps Daniel H. Pink’s When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, or Liza Mundy’s Code Girls: The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers of World War II.

Or maybe you just need to unwind from the past academic year by getting lost in a good story. If so, check out one of these novels: Andy Weir’s The Martian, Oyinkan Braithwaite’s My Sister, the Serial Killer, Kate Atkinson’s Life After Life, Julie Schumacher’s Dear Committee Members, or Sandra Cisneros’s Caramelo, or Puro Cuento.
