If you’re in Fort Collins or elsewhere and a fan of reading, you might want to know what books are gaining attention from critics this summer. You don’t have to wonder too long because experts have sat down and done the hard work for you.
Publishers Weekly is famous for their weekly book picks. This summer they chose Cataract City by Craig Davidson, The Antiquarian by Gustavo Faveron Patriau, Bellweather Rapsody by Kate Racculia, In the Wolf’s Mouth by Adam Foulds, Summer House with Swimming Pool by Herman Koch, and The Stories of Jane Gardam by Jane Gardam among others. These books are the perfect companion for a long summer and go well with a glass of lemonade and a hot lazy afternoon in the hammock.
The Journal Sentinel provided a list of 96 books we can add to our reading list this summer. They break it into categories such as Books We’ve Already Liked, Recent Graduates, By Wisconsin Writers, Editors’ Picks, Visiting Writers, Mysteries and Thrillers, Pop Culture, Visually Appealing, Children and Teens, and For Baseball Fans. So follow the Milwaukee Public Library’s advice: “Put a book in your face!”
