My Top Ten Summer Reads 2013

Everyone seems to be making lists these days; and since I feel I have been lucky in my reading choices so far this year, I have made my own. Being an enthusiastic reader, I might have made a longer list but here are reads I consider 'sure things' in no particular order.

Beautiful Ruins - Jess Walter
Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn
The Language of Flowers - Vanessa Diffenbaugh
The Banks of Certain Rivers - Jon Harrison (e-book only)
The Dinner - Herman Koch
Life After Life - Kate Atkinson
Rage Against the Dying - Becky Masterman
Reconstructing Amelia - Kimberly McCreight
Someday, Someday Maybe - Lauren Graham
Foal Play - Kathryn O'Sullivan

Some are thrillers, some are mysteries, and some are love stories.


  1. Thanks for the interesting list. I loved Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, I haven't read any of the others though.

    I'll be adding them to my tbr list for the summer along with a couple of boxed sets I've purchased by Linda Prather and Donna Fasano.

    Happy Summer reading!

  2. Thanks, Mel. I'll have to check out your thrillers!
