Need a good book for summer reading?
With the help of Patricia Arrington from the Peabody Institute Library, we've compiled a list of the ten most requested books right now, as well as a look at some hot summer picks.
"We have some pretty dedicated romance readers here at the library and I'm
hoping that the popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey might cause some people
to give some of our other romance titles a try," Arrington said. "Fifty Shades is not the only steamy book we have on the shelf!"
Other books that Arrington thinks will be popular this summer?
- Wicked Business, the next book in Janet Evanovich's series starring Salem baker, Lizzy Tucker.
- Reader's who loved last year's summer hit Maine, may like The Cottage at Glass Beach by Heather Barbieri.
- Carlos Ruiz Zafon, author of the Shadow of the Wind, has a new book out this summer called the Prisoner of Heaven.
- Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes has been getting a lot of pre-pub buzz.
- Little Bee author, Chris Cleave has a new book called Gold about two Olympic athletes that will be coming out just in time for the London Games.
