From classics to book-club favorites, these are the nine books on our summer reading list.  

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) 

“I’m not one to read memoirs but I had a feeling Mindy would have a funny take on her own life, which made this a fun, light-hearted summer read. She’s somewhat relatable and it made it seem like we are both friends chatting over some cupcakes at a local cafe.” -Poonam Patel, operations manager 


“I’m joining everyone and their mother and Michelle Obama in recommending Tara Westover’s memoir. She describes her turbulent upbringing with such poignancy, it’s hard to put down and I almost finished it during one flight. If you liked The Glass Castle, you’ll love Educated.” -Courtney Runn, assistant editor 

The Strike Series 

“My current read is a little less monumental, though a saga nonetheless: The Strike Series, easily digestible crime fiction centered around lovable yet weary London private detective Cormoran Strike and written by Robert Galbraith, the nom de plume of one of my favorite authors, the incomparable J.K. Rowling.” -Chantal Rice, managing editor 

How Not to Die 

“I’ve learned so much about how I can take control of my health with evidence-based diet. How Not to Die reveals the scientific evidence that can help prevent and reverse many of the causes of disease-related death.” -Monika Kelley, account executive 

Crazy Rich Asians 

“I’m reading the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy. Loved the movie so I picked up the set and it’s easy beach/poolside reading.” -Madilyn Biscoe, marketing and events manager 

East of Eden 

“My favorite book of all time is East of Eden by John Steinbeck. An epic and enthralling read, it touches on the conflicts inherent in family dynamics, the harsh realities of rejection, the pain and evil that can reside in the world and, ultimately, perseverance and optimism.” –Chantal Rice, managing editor 

Daughter of Moloka’i

“Tracing the lives of a daughter and mother, Daughter of Moloka’i offers an intimate look at the experience of Japanese Americans growing up in California during WWII. It’s beautifully written and I learned so much about a dark period of U.S. history.” -Courtney Runn, assistant editor 

Do I Make Myself Clear?

“Do I Make Myself Clear? is an impassioned reckoning on grammar and the importance of a sleek writing style. It’s creative, funny and avoids dryness or pedantry.” -Brianna Caleri, writer 

The Wife Between Us

“A real page-turner, The Wife Between Us is full of twists and turns right till the very end.” -Niki Jones, creative director
