LibraryReads List June 2018

by Lindsey A.

Can you believe summer is already upon us? I’ve been trapped in a fugue state of summer program planning, but now I’m ready to breathe and read. LibraryReads has kicked off the summer with a new list of books recommended by librarians across the nation.

Psychological suspense is perennially popular, and the number one pick for this month’s list is B. A. ParisBring Me Back. In addition, a number of popular authors have new titles out this month, including Fredrik Backman, Emily Giffin, Anthony Horowitz, and Karen White.

By far the book that interests me the most is There There by Tommy Orange. It’s all too rare to find a book about Native Americans by a Native America, not only published by a major publishing house but also well-marketed. According to a starred review in Kirkus, it is a vivid and moving “kaleidoscopic” look at Native American life through the experiences of twelve characters living in Oakland, California. It sounds like a promising debut!

I’m also intrigued by Helen Hoang’s The Kiss Quotient. A heroine with Asperger’s, a male escort, mathematics… it doesn’t sound like a conventional contemporary romance!

Do any of these June LibraryReads titles pique your interest? Let us know in the comments!
