Summer Reading @ The Merrick Library

  Where We Belong, by Emily Giffin
This could be Giffin’s best yet! New York television producer Marion Caldwell’s carefully constructed life is thrown into turmoil by the appearance of an eighteen-year-old girl with ties to her past. Both Marion and the girl are swept up in a maelstrom of personal discovery that changes their perceptions about family. Another perfect summer read, you’ll loose yourself in this wonderful story.

150 Pounds, by Kate Rockland
Approaching their wildly successful blogs from opposite ends of the scale, undersized loner Alexis and plus-sized social butterfly Shoshana advocate significantly different lifestyle perspectives until both appear on a popular talk show that causes their lives to intersect in unexpected ways. This is a charming novel with an uplifting message.

Wallflower in Bloom, by Claire Cook
A winning and witty new novel about a woman who emerges from the shadow of her overbearing family and finds herself “dancing with the stars.”
A definite pleaser!

Hypnotist’s Love Story, by Liane Moriarty
This is a wonderfully fun, insightful novel about the crazy things we do for love. Pursuing what she hopes will be a positive relationship with new boyfriend Patrick, hypnotherapist Ellen learns that his ex-girlfriend is stalking him, a situation that Ellen finds professionally fascinating before discovering the woman's identity. A perfectly satisfying beach read!
