Summer Books for 2013

Announcing: the Bargain Booksy summer reading list!

To celebrate the first official day of summer (in our part of the world, at least), we’ve collected a list of the best summer books to toss in your beach bag this year. We’ve hand-picked each book from a few places: Oprah’s list of the best summer reads for 2013, reader nominations, popular charts on Goodreads, and our own brains (and wish lists). This list of summer books to read is segmented by genre, so no matter what type of book you’re craving, check out our picks below for our recommendations.


Romance / Women’s Fiction

The Sacramento Bee has called Debbie Macomber “the reigning queen of women’s fiction” – and she has a new book coming out on August 13th. ROSE HARBOR IN BLOOM is a heartwarming tale in line with other Macomber favorites. THE FOREVER OF ELLA AND MICHA is the second book in Jessica Sorensen’s Ella and Micha series – it’s a story of young love, long distance, and making it work when the odds are against you. (best of all, it’s only $2.99). Nora Roberts’ book WHISKEY BEACH is on the fast track to becoming a #1 bestseller – it’s a contemporary romantic suspense that makes for a perfect vacation (or weekend) read.


Young Adult / Teen Fiction

Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles books are high-tech, SciFi retellings of the classic Cinderella story. Don’t expect a damsel in distress, though – Cinder is a smart and kickass protagonist. The second book in the series, SCARLET, is a must-read for teen fiction lovers. THE SILVER STAR is by Jeanette Walls, the best selling author of THE GLASS CASTLE. It’s a novel of two teenagers discovering their father and learning about the meaning of true family along the way. Sarah Dessen’s book THE MOON AND MORE is a romantic, lighthearted novel about high school sweethearts headed for college. If you’re a Sarah Dessen fan, you have to add this book to your list!


Science Fiction

READY PLAYER ONE by Ernest Cline is a staff pick: our marketing manager will tell you it’s one of the best science fction books she’s ever read (up there with Ender’s Game). It’s nostalgic and fun with plenty of high-tech adventure – if you’re into 1980’s pop culture and video games at all, you’re going to LOVE this book. Pinky promise. Hugh Howey’s book DUST is for WOOL fans – and if you haven’t picked up a Hugh Howey book yet, shame on you. It’s modern scifi at its best. John Scalzi’s book REDSHIRTS is a futuristic adventure through space on the flagship Intrepid. If you love Star Trek-esque adventures, you can’t miss this one.


Fantasy

Our content manager would have a hissy fit if we dared put up a ‘summer reading list’ post without including Neil Gaiman’s new release.  THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE is Gaiman’s first novel for adults since ANASI BOYS – and it’s a must-read for fantasy fans. DEAD EVER AFTER is the final (sniff sniff) Sookie Stackhouse book from best selling author Charlaine Harris. All good things must come to an end – and DEAD EVER AFTER is the adventure and romance filled finale to Sookie’s story. THE YIDDISH POLICEMEN’S UNION by Michael Chabon is equal parts fantasy and thriller – it’s an alternative history book in 1948 Israel.


Literary Fiction

Elizabeth Strout is one of our CEO’s favorite authors (and a Pulitzer Prize winner to boot), so her new release THE BURGESS BOYS is naturally on our summer reading list.  It’s hard to follow up an award-winning book like OLIVE KITTERIDGE, but THE BURGESS BOYS lives up to all expectations and makes for a wonderful read. AND THE MOUNTAINS ECHOED is a new book from author Khaled Hosseini, who wrote the #1 best seller THE KITE RUNNER. It’s a novel about finding yourself by caring for another – it’s powerful, complex, and unforgettable. LIFE AFTER LIFE by Kate Atkinson is hailed by Gillian Flynn (author of GONE GIRL, one of our favorites) as one of the greatest novels of the century. It’s a historical novel of a woman who is born again every time she dies – and each life is an iteration of the one she left behind.


Nonfiction

LEAN IN by Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, is a well researched and inspirational book about women in the workplace. David Sedaris’ newest book, LET’S EXPLORE DIABETES WITH OWLS, is a collection of poignant and humorous essays typical of Sedaris’ unforgettable style. WILD is an Oprah Book Club pick – it’s a memoir about how one woman took a solo hike on the Pacific Coast Trail and put her life back together on the way.

AK JENNINGS

AK Jennings is a lifelong learner with a gift for synthesizing knowledge. Born in Australia in 1975, he is a world traveler who picks up the best from each encounter, each book he reads and each experience he goes through.

He firmly believes in self-actualization and learning independently, and wishes to help his readers without fluff and redundancy, distilling knowledge from many other books as well as his life experiences.

I love learning, traveling, skydiving. I love eating healthy and tasting curry, both Indian and Thai food, and can live on greens (leafy vegetable) juice and coconut water for ever.

ROLAND CHEEK

After living in NW Oregon, I moved to Western Montana to explore more of nature with my family. I later started an outfitting company and explored more of the wilderness that lead to writing. I started with Montana’s Bob Marshall Wilderness which is mostly a photo style coffee table book. Now I was ready to get to the meat of writing. Stories, stories about bears, Learning To Talk Bear took some time as lots of research was needed. Eleven books of different genre’s followed. 

Favorite Food: Almost anything set in front of me.

Favorite Place to Write: I have an office overlooking a wooded area, it is amazing what inspiration comes from watching the unsuspecting creatures enjoying that site.

Favorite Music: I seldom listen to music as I need quiet when writing.
