4 Great Page-Turners for the Beach

Summer is about to take its last gasp. Whether you are heading to the beach, have access to a hammock, or need to find an escape from nonstop election coverage here are some books that will grip you from the very start. We’ve culled these four top picks from an array of books we perused this summer. These were the ones that kept us occupied on long flights, sleepless nights, and some honest to god days at the beach.

This New York Times Bestseller and Amazon Book of the Month for June got me so hooked I was actually irritated there was no time to sneak in a couple minutes to read in a doctor’s waiting room.

Here is what Amazon’s review had to say: “Noah Hawley’s new novel begins with the crash of a private plane carrying some very influential people on board. The only survivors are the young son of a media mogul and an obscure painter who, given his less than elevated status, seems like a wild card from the start. What happened on that flight? Why did the plane go down and if it was intentional, who was the target?”

From the best-selling author of [easyazon_link identifier=”0425274861″ locale=”US” tag=”gb-proeve-20″]Big Little Lies[/easyazon_link] and [easyazon_link identifier=”0425267725″ locale=”US” tag=”gb-proeve-20″]The Husband’s Secret[/easyazon_link] Liane Moriarty once again examines the cross currents running beneath seemingly happy families and the impact of an accident at a barbecue has on all of them.  I raced through this one to discover the specifics of the incident and continued racing to see the final ripples of its impact on these characters’ lives.

From Amazon’s Review: “Many writers have trouble plumbing the depths of a single character’s soul. Moriarty effortlessly dives deep in six different characters—the three married couples at a backyard barbeque in Sydney that goes horribly wrong. Chapters jump in time between the day of the barbecue and its aftereffects in the present, with the ripples of that evening disrupting and destroying relationships.”

A modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice. If you are like me, that sentence alone might sell you on this one. I also happen to have found Curtis Sittenfeld’s two prior books, [easyazon_link identifier=”081297235X” locale=”US” tag=”gb-proeve-20″]Prep[/easyazon_link] and [easyazon_link identifier=”0812975405″ locale=”US” tag=”gb-proeve-20″]American Wife[/easyazon_link], compulsively readable. So I was very curious to see how she  would transform Elizabeth Bennet into a modern day magazine writer and transport the setting to Cincinnati. A great escape for those looking for a little romance.

From the Publisher: This version of the Bennet family—and Mr. Darcy—is one that you have and haven’t met before: Liz is a magazine writer in her late thirties who, like her yoga instructor older sister, Jane, lives in New York City. When their father has a health scare, they return to their childhood home in Cincinnati to help—and discover that the sprawling Tudor they grew up in is crumbling and the family is in disarray.

If the new Jason Bourne movie has you itching to read something that offers up  a little spycraft and a ton of action Orphan X won’t disappoint. Jumping between current day action and the backstory of mystery man Evan Smoak this book left me wishing there were already several sequels to grab.

From the publisher:

The Nowhere Man is a legendary figure spoken about only in whispers. It’s said that when he’s reached by the truly desperate and deserving, the Nowhere Man can and will do anything to protect and save them. But he’s no legend. Evan Smoak is a man with skills, resources, and a personal mission to help those with nowhere else to turn. He’s also a man with a dangerous past.
