For many of us there is nothing better than reading a good book. Whether you’re like me (a traditionalist who loves the feel of turning pages), or you prefer to use your e-reader, getting a recommendation on a great read is always appreciated. Here are some of the best summer books of 2015 from the staff at Publishers Weekly:

  • Modern Romance: An Investigation, by Aziz Ansari
  • The Argonauts, by Maggie Nelson
  • Meanwhile There Are Letters: The Correspondence of Eudora Welty and Ross Macdonald, edited by Suzanne Marrs and Tom Nolan
  • Let Me Tell You: New Stories, Essays and Other Writings, by Shirley Jackson
  • The Silenced, by James DeVita
  • Flash: The Homeless Donkey Who Taught Me about Life, Faith and Second Chances, by Rachel Anne Ridge
  • Finders Keepers, by Steven King

Esquire magazine has also compiled their list of great summer reading recommendations:

  • Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life, by William Finnegan
  • Speak, by Louisa Hall
  • Love and Other Wounds, by Jordan Harper
  • As If! The Oral History of Clueless As told by Amy Heckerling, the Cast and the Crew, by Jen Chaney
  • Bull Mountain, by Brian Panowich

Personally, I am finishing up a couple great books: Hope to Die, the latest Alex Cross mystery from James Patterson, and Dan Brown’s, Inferno.

And of course, readers are clamoring over the release of Harper Lee’s Go Set a Watchman.

Whether it’s to escape to another land, solve a mystery or learn about someone who inspired you, what’s the best book you’ve read this summer? We’d love to hear.
