Bookwatch summer reads


Five big X’s.

That’s what you’ve got on your calendar, running in a line right across the week you’re on vacation. Yep, five days away and you’re already planning on what to pack – so don’t forget a book…


Your vacation will be happier with novels by Julie Garwood, Daniel Silva, Susan Mallory, Joshilyn Jackson, Suzanne Brockmann, Kathy Reichs, Linda Castillo, Alexander McCall Smith, M.J. Rose, Ace Atkins, Iris Johansen and Roy Johansen, and C.J. Box.

Ben Mezrich looks at how science is trying to “de-extinct” the wooly mammoth. There’s a new biography due on Sarah Vaughn that you can find in July. This month, you can read about the air we breathe, learn about Jews who escaped Nazi Germany and returned to fight against Hitler; and you can find out how to best become an “angel investor.” You’ll find several new books for your summer cook-out, books to make you beach-ready, and a new book for fans of the Archie comics.


Hey, there’s still a lot of summer left, and a lot of books to read!

Enjoy the season with new novels by J.R. Ward, Fiona Davis, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Sgt. Jack Coughlin, Susan Wiggs, Debbie Macomber, Stuart Woods and Parnell Hall, Sandra Brown, Karin Slaughter, Tess Gerritsen, Andrew Gross, Robin Cook, T. Jefferson Parker, Erica Spindler, Sue Grafton’s “Y is for…”, Jonathan Kellerman and Jesse Kellerman, Danielle Steele, and Louise Penny.

Look for Heather Harphum’s new book on happiness. There’s a book due out about a college athlete and her tragic suicide, and one about a female code-breaker in World War II. Look for a new book on how to use your Liberal Arts degree. You’ll find a new book about Buddhism this month; also, a book about Alzheimer’s; one about how a father saved his son from ISIS; one by NFL team players, about their first coaches; and a business book on succeeding, by American counterintelligence expert Robin Dreeke (with Cameron Stauth). Also look for a book on scandals at America’s elite colleges; a new book by Al Roker on the Johnstown Flood; and a book about how wonderful it is to be an adult who reads children’s literature.

And on that note, there are many, many new releases for the kids and the kid in you!


Remember that this isn’t a final list, nor is it cast in stone. Releases may be cancelled or rescheduled. If you’re excited about any of these titles, check with your favorite bookseller or librarian – they know what’s up and helping you find exactly what you need is what they do best.

Happy vacation, and happy reading!
