Beach Reads: Five Summer Books To Make You Look Sexy And Smart

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Next »

Sure, you want to look sexy at the beach—but you can do it while reading a great book. What makes for a great summer read? It’s a little different for everyone: You might want something light as an ocean breeze, full of  bare-chested hunks on the sand. Or perhaps you’d like to be enveloped in a book that lingers for month. Whether you’re catching up on the must-read doorstop of the season (like Haruki Murakami’s 1,184-pager,  1Q84), yearn for a dishy celebrity biography (try Frank Langella’s Dropped Names), want to curl up with a bestseller before it turns into a movie (The Art of Fielding), or just want another trashy vampire story you don’t mind getting a little damp poolside (take your pick), there’s something for everyone.

Here are a few queer-interest titles that will get you through the steamy months ahead.

      I recommend Jim David’s “You’ll be Swell.” Had me in stitches by the end of Chapter 2.

      My two cents:

      Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (a fun and fast and twisty read and if Elizabeth Banks isn’t cast as Amy in the inevitable movie, I’ll protest; Flynn said one of her influences was the movie War of the Roses and it shows!)

      Carry the One by Carol Anshaw (members of a wedding party tied together by a tragedy)

      I agree with ‘Gone Girl’ by Gillian Flynn.
