Meghan’s Must Reads for the Summer

I love the summer and the beach at the shore. It’s not because I get a deep, dark tan…hardly.
It’s not because I swim in the ocean or surf, it’s because I do my best reading with my toes in
the sand. Nothing beats a warm summer day, your beach chair and a good book. Well, maybe
having a cooler of cold beer at your side!
I work for the Ocean City Free Public Library and am always asked what I’m reading or what’s
good to read. Here are a few of my favorites. I’ve also included two YA selections for those
young adults who not only want to plow through their summer reading lists, but might enjoy
reading something for fun.
“A Southern Girl”
by John Warley
“A Southern Girl” is set in historic Charleston, specifically the provincial South of Broad
neighborhood. It is a story about International adoption and of families being separated, then
reunited. “A Southern Girl” illustrates the determination of unconditional love.
“A Simple Favor”
by Darcey Bell
“A Simple Favor” is Darcy Bell’s debut thriller. If you liked “Gone Girl” or “Girl on a Train,” this is
the book for you. It describes the twisted relationship between two best friends and the havoc
wreaked on a single mother’s life when her best friend disappears.
“The Lake House”
by Kate Morton
Alice Edevane is living on her family’s picturesque estate in Cornwall, England when her
eleven-month-old brother vanishes without a trace. The mystery remains unsolved until years
later when Alice crosses paths with a young, London detective. Together, Alice and Sadie
reveal the surprising and shocking secrets of the past.
“The Girl Before”
by J.P. Delaney
“The Girl Before” is another psychological thriller…can you sense a pattern? It is also in the
same tradition as “Gone Girl” or “The Silent Wife.” “The Girl Before” tells the story of one
woman’s apparent good fortune and another woman’s tragic and unexplainable fate. It is a
page-turner full of deception and cunning with an unbelievable ending.
“Hidden Figures”
by Margot Lee Shetterly
This is the book behind the 2016 block buster movie. The book goes into much more detail in
describing the true story of NASA’s black, female mathematicians. It was their calculations that Meghan’s Must Reads for the Summer
