When I was asked to appear on CTV Ottawa Morning Live to discuss my hot summer beach reads I immediately contacted the great folks at Harper Collins Canada to ask them what they thought were this summer’s hottest reads, and here’s what they said;
Beautiful Ruins is an almost love story set on the Italian coast about a young man and a Hollywood starlet. It’s a dazzling, yet deeply human, roller coaster of a novel, spanning fifty years and nearly as many lives (including Richard Burton’s!). Critics have been raving about this book, with the New York Times calling Jess Walter ““A ridiculously talented writer”. And, it has a gorgeous cover!
I Heart London is a fun and light ‘chick lit’ read from the hilarious Lindsey Kelk. Here, our hero Angela Clark returns home to London where she must deal with an ex-boyfriend, her best friend’s terrifying new baby, and an overbearing mother. This book is great for fans of the Shopaholic series.
This is the sequel to the bestseller The Shadow of the Wind. Here, we return to the Cemetery of Forgotten Books and the Sempere & Sons bookstore for a mystery involving a mysterious visitor, secrets from the past, and a first edition of The Count of Monte Cristo. Haunting, beautifully written, and atmospheric, this is another gem from Zafon.
Charlotte Street is a heartwarming tale of boy stalks girl… This new novel from the hilarious Danny Wallace, author of Yes Man, is all about chance encounters, and how far you’ll go to find the girl of your dreams.
This is for YA fiction fans! Team Human is charming, hilarious, and has fun with the vampire craze in literature. Larbalestier and Brennan team up to create a witty and poignant story of cool vampires, warm friendships, and the changes that test the bonds of love.
