Carol's Vacation Reading

Posted by admin

Here are the books I have packed for vacation reading:

ALL THIS BELONGS TO ME by Ad Hudler - I have been a fan of Ad's since HOUSEHUSBAND.
CASE HISTORIES by Kate Atkinson - This is coming out in paperback in September. Four people including Joe Rivera, our designer, said this is one of the best books that they have read.
CHILL FACTOR by Sandra Brown - Beach means read Sandra.
CREEPERS by David Morrell - We are doing a Suspense/Thriller feature on David...looking forward to reading him.
DANCE OF DEATH by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child - I have never read Preston/Child and everyone says I am missing something BIG not doing this.
THE DEVIL IN THE WHITE CITY by Erik Larson - I missed this one when it came out.
HOSTILE MAKEOVER by Wendy Wax - She writes great funny books.
IN THE FOLD by Rachel Cusk - This was handed to me a few weeks ago by someone who said if I like Kate Atkinson (see above), I will like this.
KISSING ADRIEN by Siri L. Mitchell - I had dinner with her in Denver and everyone at the table told me I needed to read her.
LEAVE ME ALONE, I'M READING by Maureen Corrigan - This could be the title of my memoir.
LOCKED DOORS by Blake Crouch - Joe Hartlaub said it may be the best book he read this year.
LOVE AND OTHE IMPOSSIBLE PURSUITS by Ayelet Waldman - Annie Binkley said this one is a must-read.
MAXIMUM RIDE by James Patterson - Cory, my 10-year old son, LOVED this.
PREP by Curtis Sittenfeld - Heard a lot about this one and it's getting buzz on our website. Need to see what's the attraction.
THE SCENT OF LILACS by Ann H. Gabhart - Suzie Cross told me I would love this.
THEM by Francine du Plessix Gray - I worked for Alexander Liberman for a while when I was at Conde Nast.
TRUE BELIEVER by Nicholas Sparks - Nick Sparks is one of my fave beach reads, probably since the books are set in the South.
WHITE by Christopher Whitcomb - I have met Chris and enjoyed his last two books.
