  1. The Help by Kathryn Stockett
  2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
  3. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
  4. The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman
  5. The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
  6. September Ends by Hunter S. Jones
  7. The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
  8. Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
  9. The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
  10. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

These books are wonderful and will leave you thinking about them later. What’s on your summer reading list?


  1. Great list! I’ve already read 1,3,4,5 and 7 – and they were all great. Gone Girl was riveting. And Secret Life of Bees, as well as The Help, are to me present-day classics and must-reads. I’m not even a dog person but The Art of Racing in the Rain was really touching.
