His most recent work, Love is Not Enough, is Audible.com’s best seller of 2020. Manson allows fans to see a deeper, more emotional side to his personality as he explores the theme of imperfect relationships and how to mend them. Manson’s work is great for those who’d rather close their eyes, tune out and listen inwards.
Beach Read – Emily Henry
The title of this book reflects the best way to enjoy it — as a beach read. Henry’s tale follows two down-trodden writers who come together to not only inspire each other artistically, but to rekindle a belief in romance. The book is critically acclaimed and audience-approved, sure to be a good time for any reader.
The Ballad Of Songbirds And Snakes – Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games trilogy became a smash hit when it was released, and to the pleasure of many, Suzanne Collins has decided to continue the tale. Acting as both a prequel and spinoff to the trilogy, Collins takes readers on another dystopian, action-filled adventure that will be sure to delight current fans and attract new ones alike.
Sex and Vanity: A Novel – Kevin Kwan
Loved Crazy Rich Asians? Then you’ll love the author’s recent book, Sex and Vanity: A Novel! This time, Kwan introduces fans to a woman who must make one tough decision: should she choose the family-approved, obscenely wealthy man, or the man she certainly shouldn’t have any involvement with, in any shape or form? With the same humor and warmth as Crazy Rich Asians, Kwan’s new work is sure to be a hit with fans of the rom-com genre.
Whether you’re looking for fast-paced thrillers, action-adventure or a little bit of love, there’s something for everyone this summer.
