Fellow Totebaggers – what are the books you’ve enjoyed reading this summer? Or the books you haven’t liked?
Here are some books I’ve read and enjoyed this summer:
“Lab Girl” by Hope Jahren – combination memoir and science writing. Very good.
“Fool Me Once” – a page-turner thriller by Harlan Coben. I couldn’t put it down.
“Eligible” by Curtis Sittenfeld – a fun, lighthearted retelling of Pride and Prejudice.
“Cure: A Journey into the Science of the Mind over Body” by Jo Marchant. I found this book fascinating – it looks at the connection between the mind and the body. It’s written by a science reporter who has a PhD in genetics and microbiology – but is very readable (lots of really interesting stories).
“The Golem and the Jinni” by Helene Wecker – a chance meeting between mythical beings takes set in turn-of-the-century New York. Part fantasy and part historical fiction with a fairy tale-like quality about it.
And of course “Untethered” by Julie Lawson Timmer.
