Today marks the first official day of Summer 2016! The sun is shining, the amusement parks and swimming pools and ice cream stores are open and ready for business, and books are just begging to be read. We asked a number of Atria authors which titles they’re dying to read in the next few months; check them out below and add each one to your TBR pile today!

What is on your summer reading list?

EZEKIEL BOONE (The Hatching, 7/5/16):

My summer reading list includes Joe Hill’s The Fireman, Hidden Bodies, which is Caroline Kepnes’ follow-up to You, and Carrie, by Stephen King, which I’ve never read. I’m also working my through the John Connolly Charlie Parker mysteries again. There’s also the chance I’ll be the last person in the world to read The Girl on the Train.

BTW....YOU AREN'T THE LAST ONE TO READ THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN...I ALSO HAVEN'T READ IT YET.  :)

SARAH PEKKANEN (The Perfect Neighbors, 7/5/16):

Topping the list are my favorites – Jennifer Weiner, Emily Giffin, Jodi Picoult – and I’m also going to read Eleanor Brown’s new novel The Light of Paris. It’s her first book since The Weird Sisters, and I’ve been eagerly awaiting it.

I’m going to finish Doctor Sleep and then start Harlan Coben’s Fool Me Once. If I’m lucky, I’ll then read James Rollins’ The Bone Labyrinth.
