Source Suggests

Who needs a big, heavy hardcover to lug around this summer? Have a look at our paperback picks for the best reads of the season:

"My Absolute Darling"

by Gabriel Tallent

Our favorite book of 2017 is a dark coming of age tale set on the Mendocino coast. A year later and we still talk about Turtle Alverson and where she might be.

"Magpie Murders"

by Anthony Horowitz

Mysteries don't get much more fun than this. You think you know, but trust me, you don't...

"The Rules of Magic"

by Alice Hoffman

The three Owens siblings grapple with the family curse in the prequel to "Practical Magic." A standout book club read.

"Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine"

by Gail Honeyman

Coming to the big screen and another huge hit with book clubs, Eleanor is the awkward heroine you can't help rooting for.

"The Half Drowned King"

by Linnea Hartsuyker

Great escapist, historical fantasy for fans of all things Viking. Book two arrives this fall.

"The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye"

by David Lagercrantz

The author has clearly made a deal with the devil to channel Stieg Larsson because you can't tell the difference. Lisbeth Salander is alive, well and still a badass.


by Chuck Klosterman

A 'Best-Of' collection from one of our most insightful cultural critics. Summer reading that will make you think.

"Theft By Finding: Diaries 1977-2002"

by David Sedaris

If Sedaris' sharp wit doesn't make you snicker, I'm not really sure what to say...
