20 NEW BOOKS TO ADD TO YOU By Lizz Schumer Whether you're already packing up your beach bag or just looking ahead to days when you can finally stretch out that towel and decompress, the best beach reads will make you feel like you're basking in the sun no matter what the weather's doing. Even if this summer's hottest reading locale is by the pool in your own backyard or on the living room couch with the windows open and a fan going, a good book can make even the stolen moments between tasks feel like a relaxing vacation. We firmly believe the best beach read is one that transports you, whether that's through the characters' steamy escapades, spine-tingling suspense that puts you at risk for nightmares, richly detailed historical fiction or trueto-life memoirs that give you a look at how someone else lives. No matter what your summer book taste, we've got something worth bringing along. Pick up a stack of these to carry with you wherever the summer sun takes you. 1) A House Between Earth and the Moon by Rebecca Scherm A group of scientists agree to live on Parallaxis, a space station built for billionaires (and funded by tech scions), in order to conduct research on how to keep humanity viable through a climate-devastated planet. They're promised their families can join them soon, but once the scientists make it to the station, that promise, and their lives, quickly begin to unravel.

2) Like a House on Fire by Lauren McBrayer When Merit meets the supernova architect Jane, her marriage and home life had just started to feel a little stale. But Jane injects it with a jolt of electricity that's more than a work friendship, it's a chance to imagine a different kind of life. This story of female relationships will spark your own imagination, too. 3) Memphis by Tara M. Stringfellow Painting an indelible portrait of one family's legacy of violence and survival, love and perseverance and the way art can save our souls, this is a richly painted and beautifully atmospheric novel that will make you feel like you've been transported to Memphis through its pages. 4) The Lifeguards by Amanda Eyre Ward Austin's Zilker Park neighborhood is the kind of close-knit paradise that justifies the real estate price tag, full of moms who spend every happy hour on one of their porches and kids who pal around until curfew. That is, until three of the moms' boys come back from a latenight bike ride with a secret that will blow all of their lives wide open. 5) We Do What We Do in the Dark by Michelle Hart Mallory is still unmoored from her mother's death when she meets an older woman at the gym and becomes immediately enamored. She shows Mallory a kind of life she'd previously only imagined, and their relationship changes the trajectory of her life

even after it's over. 6) The Change by Kirsten Miller When three women hit menopause, they discover they're more powerful than they ever imagined. And there are men who are about to learn that the hard way. Guided by one of the women's ability to hear the voices of dead girls who need redemption, they uncover grisly secrets and set about making them right. 7) Book Lovers by Emily Henry Thanks to her career as a highpowered literary agent, Nora already knows all of the romcom stereotypes. So when her sister invites her to spend a month in a sleepy town, she has no intention of becoming one. Besides, her editor nemesis is there too, and she's definitely not falling for him — right? 8) All the Things We Don't Talk About by Amy Feltman Teenager Morgan Flowers has spent their whole life wondering about their absent mother Zoe, trying to keep life gentle for their neurodivergent father and figure out who they are along the way. But when Zoe's girlfriend Brigid dumps her, she crash-lands back into Morgan's life, just in time for her alcohol-fueled drama to cause problems between Morgan and their new girlfriend, too. 9) This Is Not a Book About Benedict Cumberbatch: The Joy of Loving Something--Anything-Like Your Life Depends On It by Tabitha Carvan Most of us leave our teenage hearthrobs in our childhood bedrooms, trading them for more "serious" concerns like


UR SUMMER 2022 READING LIST relationships, kids and jobs. But when new mom Tabitha discovers a passion for Benedict Cumberbatch, she soon realizes her obsession isn't really about the actor at all but the joy of frivolous interests and the sense of self that can come from them. 10) Yerba Buena by Nina LaCour Sara and Emilie are both at a crossroads in their lives, when they meet at the glamorous Yerba Buena restaurant where Sara's a bartender and Emilie has taken a job arranging flowers. But despite their undeniable spark, their complicated lives get in the way. 11) Woman of Light by Kali Fajardo-Anstine Releasing June 7 After Luz's brother is run out of town by a violent white mob, she's left to navigate 1930s Denver by herself. But soon, she begins to have visions of her ancestors and their lives in the nearby Lost Territory, bearing witness to their struggle, perseverance and how important it is to ensure those stories don't die with her. 12) The Wild One by Colleen McKeegan Releasing June 14 Something terrible happened at Camp Catalpa, and it's been haunting Amanda ever since. But when the secret threatens to come out and ruin not only

her carefully crafted life but also those of the other girls who were there that day, they get together one last time to figure out how to handle it. 13) Horse by Geraldine Brooks Releasing June 14 Calling all horse girls: This is the story of the most important racehorse you've never heard of, but it's also so much more than that. It starts in 1850 with an unbreakable bond between an enslaved groom and a foal, then carries us through the art galleries of New York City with an equestrian painting that surfaces there in 1954, then to the Smithsonian as a scientist and an art historian come together over a mystery with a shared provenance. 14) Hurricane Girl by Marcy Dermansky Releasing June 14 After Allison Brody leaves her film producer boyfriend and buys a beach house, her life finally feels settled. Until a Category 3 hurricane destroys it, that is. When she meets a cameraman in a bar, going home with him doesn't seem like the worst idea in the world. That is, until he breaks a glass vase over her

head. After she has brain surgery to fix the hole he leaves, she falls in love with her brain surgeon who's also an old friend and... let's just say there's a lot going on here, and even more to love. 15) Thrust by Lidia Yuknavitch Releasing June 18 This weirdly wonderful commentary on the surveillance state, climate change and what it means to have agency as a woman in the world will throw your mind for a loop in the best way. It's got a girl who can travel through time, talking turtles, a French sculptor and a group of laborers building the statue of liberty, plus so much more. 16) Keya Das's Second Act by Sopan Deb Releasing July 5 17) Night of the Living Rez by Morgan Talty Releasing July 5 18) The Man Who Could Move Clouds by Ingrid Rojas Contreras Releasing July 12 19) Briefly, A Delicious Life by Nell Stevens Releasing July 19 20) The Last Housewife by Ashley Winstead Releasing August 16 Reprinted from https://www. goodhousekeeping. com/life/entertainment/ g3585/summer-reading/
