5 Great Beach Reads

August 5th, 2011 1 Comment

When you finally commit to turning off your smart phone, pick up one of these five books if you haven’t already. People have been raving about them for a while so I’m catching up too!

1.  Hunger Games:  The futuristic drama depicting a fantastical gladiator game where teens fight to the death is now being converted to a blockbuster trilogy starring Jennifer Lawrence (and my sister Leven!).  I’m starting Book 2 now.

2.  Rich Boy: The tale of a handsome boy who escaped his Jewish roots in Philly to live a life of grandeur in New York.

3.  Shopgirl:  Steve Martin captivates your intellect with his elegant characterization of the life of a girl who finds “someone to talk to” in an emotionally-challenged older man.

4.  The Ultimate Gift: Reflect on the true value of money as you read a trust fund kid’s journey of self-discovery as he completes tasks to gain to his inheritance. It was made into a movie too.

5.  The Paris Wife – A novel about the love shared between Ernest Hemingway and his first wife, Hadley, based on love letters they sent back and forth.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Shopgirl. It’s one of my favorite books. I have to say I’m intrigued by The Paris Wife. Thanks for the suggestions.
