Book Club: Summer Reading List

June 8, 2017

We’re all in agreement that nothing beats a good beach read. From a chef’s memoir to a 1980s love story, we did the work for you and put together a summer reading list made for long days in the sun. Check out our picks below!

GIVE A GIRL A KNIFE

By Amy Thielen
Minnesota native Amy Thielen writes about her time spent in some of the New York City’s finest kitchens (alongside chefs Daniel Boulud and Jean-Georges Vongerichten) in this foodie memoir.



DEAR MR. M

By Herman Koch
Herman Koch, author of best-seller The Dinner, is back with another suspense filled novel. The Wall Street Journal called it “a European Gone Girl” – so you know it’s going to be good. While you're at it, add The Dinner to your summer reading list too.

WHITE FUR

By Jardine Libaire
Set in 1980s New York City, White Fur tells the story of Elise Perez and Jamey Hyde as they move to Manhattan and navigate a new world. Jardine Libaire’s second novel is a true love story.

THE HEIRS: A NOVEL

By Susan Rieger
Susan Rieger’s new novel follows the upper-crust Falkes family after the death of Rupert Falkes, the family patriarch. The tale of family, money, sex and secrets all make this read hard to put down.
