Still Alice by Lisa Genova // I actually read this a few months ago, but watching the movie last weekend made me remember just how good it was. It's not super light-hearted (I cried, but that may be my family connection to Alzheimer's) so you may want to be careful about reading it on the beach or at a public pool. But I highly recommend it.
What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty // Another book with 'Alice' in the title. I honestly mix these titles up in my head sometimes. This was my first Liane Moriarty book. It totally sucked me in and and had me wanting to know what happened. It really kept me guessing.
Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty // I just finished reading this on Tuesday. I thought it was a good, easy read that kept me wanting more. However, there was a twist early on that I thought was extremely predictable. Thankfully, there were some more at the end. I did enjoy this book, but I liked What Alice Forgot more.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins // I started this on Tuesday after I finished Three Wishes. (While the fiancé watched the NBA finals, I worked on my June goals!) I'm already engrossed, and every time I stop reading I have to tear myself away! This had been all over the blogosphere and was constantly compared to Gone Girl so I knew I had to read it. (It's also ranked #7 in books on Amazon!)
Wild by Cheryl Strayed // This is next on my list! I've wanted to read this for a long time. I especially love that she lives in Portland now, and that the Pacific Crest Trail runs through the PNW too. I read an article before the movie came out about how Cheryl Strayed (the author) and Reese Witherspoon (who played her in the movie) are now friends in real life and I thought that was so cool.
Jodi Picoult // Jodi Picoult writes perfect summer beach reads (well, except for the emotional endings of some of them--I'm a crier, if that wasn't apparent). They're easy to read and they always have a big twist or two. I blogged about my love of her books here. I've read fifteen of her books and want to read any of them that I've missed!
If you're looking for more suggestions, you can view a list of books I've read (and what I rated them) and all the books on my crazy long to-read list on Goodreads here! (I love Goodreads; if you've never used it, it's basically Pinterest but just for books!)
What are you reading this summer? Have you read any of these? Did you like them as much as I did?
