If you’re looking for a new romance novel then you should definitely pick up Love and Ruin by the bestselling author Paula McLain. This book talks about a passionate and shaky marriage where the wife is a fiercely independent, ambitious young woman who would become one of the greatest war correspondents of the twentieth century. With over 150 reviews on Amazon, this love novel is rated 4.4/5 stars.

From New York Times bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand, The Perfect Couple is a must-read for summer. This book describes the many ways family can fill our lives with love, however there are many twists in this book that makes it an ultimate page turner. The New York Post says “The queen of the summer beach read…keeps the title with another light-as-air Nantucket-centered tome.”

The newest thriller in the number one New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly bestselling series is the Spymaster by Brad Thor. Across Europe, a secret organization has begun attacking diplomats back in the United States, a foreign ally demands the identity of the asset. All of the tension in the air calls for an all-out war. If you’re a fan of war books and thrillers, this book is a must-have.

Another great read that I recently finished was The Last Mrs. Parris by Liv Constantine. Amber comes from a very small town and now that she’s older, she’s determined to make a better life for herself. She flees her town, where she meets rich-beyond-belief Daphne Parrish, her husband and their two children. They seem like the perfect family, not to mention they’re surrounded by extreme wealth that Amber could only dream of. Amber’s jealousy is at an all time high, and she has a plan to make her new friends life all hers. This novel had me on my toes the entire time.

Lastly, if you’re a sports fan, the new Believe It: My Journey of Success, Failure, and Overcoming the Odds by Nick Foles shares his story being the star quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles. The story of how Nick, who was on the verge of retirement, due to an ACL tear just two seasons earlier, found the strength to rally those around him and achieve a Superbowl title.
