The Summer List - Part II

Maybe podcasts are not your jam - never fear! The girlfriend list is ready to tee up some books for you to enjoy. Besides, July and August are the perfect time to stay inside where it's cool and dive into a great story. Re-reading the list I see we are all over the place on genres - but that's what makes it fun!

A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles (soon to be a series on Showtime)

Anything by David Sedaris 😊

Guncle by Steven Rowley (his newest book The Celebrants is great too - different vibe but I loved it)

Modoc: The True Story of the Greatest Elephant That Ever Lived by Ralph Helfer

Remarkably Bright Creatures by Jenna Pick

Spare by Prince Harry

The Black Echo (Harry Bosch book 1, many more in the series) by Michael Connelly (also on TV)

The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell

Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand (do not watch the movie!)

West With Giraffes by Lynda Rutledge (goes well with Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles)

Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women by Kate Moore

Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Windspear (it's first in a series, Maise is a WWI nurse turned private investigator)


For those of you who prefer audio books or are roadtripping, give these a try. We think these are really better in audio:

Anything by David Sedaris 😊

Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir

The Bomber Mafia by Malcolm Gladwell

The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle 

Finally, if you are an e-book reader check out the Libby app, I am a new fan. They also have audio books. For those of you with ties to the DoD, did you know there is an DoD MWR Library accessible by Libby that is huge? You just need your DoD ID card number to verify and you are in.
