Hallelujah! It is finally summer! (If you doubt me, just take a look at my sunburn. Well, actually you can’t, but trust me it’s there.) You know what that means right? Summer blockbusters. But the blockbusters I am talking about are not Suicide Squad or Finding Dory. No, I am talking about book industry blockbusters, because some of the best books come out in the summer.
So, without further ado, here are four books coming at you in June:
1. First Comes Love by Emily Giffin – Coming out June 28th, this is the latest from the author of Something Borrowed. This books shares the story of two sisters who have become estranged after tragedy struck their family. Fifteen years later, both are on different paths and both must learn to reconcile their differences and face the choices that they made in this beautiful and poignant novel.
2. The Girls by Emma Cline – Based on the real-life story of the Manson family, this book tells the story of Evie Boyd, who gets drawn into a cult. The more involved she gets, the more she learns not to see the evil acts she is committing. Shocking and mesmerizing, this book is definitely one of the most hyped for June.
3. Here’s to Us by Elin Hilderbrand – Hilderbrand’s latest novel relates the story of three women who all married the same man and have the unspoken agreement of never meeting each other. That agreement is broken when the man they all have in common dies and they all visit his Nantucket beach house to fulfill his dying wish to have his do-it-yourself family all there. There is enough drama and intrigue to keep you riveted to the last page.
4. Since She Went Away by David Bell – Jenna Springer is hoping to reconcile herself with her lifelong best friend, Celia. When she arrives late, she finds that Celia has mysteriously disappeared. She desperately searches for Celia, to no avail. When Jenna’s son’s girlfriend also disappears, Jenna is finally able to unravel the web of secrets and discover the truth behind Celia’s disappearance. This is a good old fashioned thriller to keep your mind busy while you’re tanning. Hopefully you can remember to reapply sunscreen.
And there you have it. Those are just some of the many exciting books to look forward to this June. Be sure to add them to your summer reading list. And as always, happy reading.
