We asked on Facebook: What are the best books to read poolside and on the beach this summer?
“The Honey Bus: A Memoir of Loss, Courage and a Girl Saved by Bees.”
“The Happiness List” by Annie Lyons.
Jan Trevathan Rotenberry
“Mimosa Grove” by Sharon Sala and “Cemetery Road” by Greg Iles.
Couldn’t put down a copy of “Crazy Rich Asians” on the beach last summer and burnt my hands pretty badly.
“China Rich Girlfriend” by Kevin Kwan.
“Where the Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens. Ivan Doig’s “Last Bus to Wisdom.”
“Where the Crawdads Sing.” Great read. One you need to read twice.
“The Dry” by Jane Harper.
Trudy Sander Trochesset
“Gifts from the Sea.”
“The Seven Sisters” series by Lucinda Riley.
“The Better Sister” by Alafair Burke.
“The Girls of Atomic City.” It’s about the women in a factory town in Tennessee created by the U.S. government to build the fuel cells for the atomic bomb.
Anne B. Darring
“I’ll Be Gone in the Dark” by Michelle McNamara. Next, I’m reading “The Devil in the White City” by Erik Larson. We all remember his book “Isaac’s Storm.”
Recommend “Murder in the One Percent” by Galveston’s own Saralyn Jacobson Richard. It’s a great read.
“Redemption” by David Baldacci.
“Gusher.” A novel of the Rockefeller oil empire. It’s a page-turner and a great beach read!
“Swabbed & Found” by local Chief Meteorologist Frank Billingsley.
“Janet Evanovich” series with Stephanie Plum as the private investigator. The titles have numbers in them. They are laugh-out-loud funny.
