For July 4: Summer Reading Lists from the U.S.

Because I’ve been celebrating Canada Day, I’ve posted about Canadian books and Canadian summer reading lists.  I do, however, read reviews in a number of American publications.  On July 4, Independence Day in the U.S., I thought I’d mention the summer reading lists from 5 American sources:

Kirkus Reviews has two lists.  One is entitled “10 Summer Reads Everyone is Talking About”: https://www.kirkusreviews.com/lists/10-summer-reads-everyone-talking-about/.  And though many book clubs do not meet over the summer, Kirkus Reviews also offers 11 summer reads for book clubs:  https://www.kirkusreviews.com/lists/11-excellent-summer-reads-your-book-club/.

The Boston Globe suggests 80 books in different categories (fiction, non-fiction, mystery, and sports):  https://www.bostonglobe.com/arts/books/2016/06/22/fiction/agkgp2oPMk9FUe5UMEsMEK/story.html.

The Chicago Tribune offers 30 suggestions:

The New York Times recommends 18 books, some new, some not so:  http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/27/books/12-new-books-were-reading-this-summer-and-6-not-so-new.html?_r=1

And the Washington Post has also released a list:  https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/entertainment/summer-reading-list-2016/.

Of course, I hope you’ll peruse my reviews on this blog for suggestions for good reads – in the summer or anytime of the year.


Happy July 4th to all my American readers!
