#flipshopping: Beach Reads

Inside Flipboard / July 3, 2014


Reading outside is one of the greatest parts of summer. Whether you intend to spend some time at the beach, a lake, a pool, or just hanging out in your backyard, we’ve picked our favorite page-turners just in time for July 4. In this new magazine, Beach Reads, you’ll find:

  • The Silkworm is the latest novel by Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowling, of Harry Potter fame). This is her second book in the Cormoran Strike Series after last year’s hit, The Cuckoo’s Calling. People magazine called it “a second absorbing whodunit starring detective Cormoran Strike to follow last year’s stealth hit, The Cuckoo’s Calling…. Astutely observed, well-paced…The Silkworm thoroughly engages as a crime novel.”
  • Pulitzer Prize winner The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt is a story about an orphaned boy and the art underworld. Once you start it, you won’t be able to put it down. In The New York Times, Stephen King wrote that “The Goldfinch is a rarity that comes along perhaps half a dozen times per decade, a smartly written literary novel that connects with the heart as well as the mind.”
  • Helen Fielding’s third book about the funny, flighty and terminally relatable Bridget Jones chronicles Twitter, dating with children and younger guys. The New Yorker called it “tender and comic.”
