Looking for a summer read? Try one of these 5 books

I continually like to pick out a collection of books to take with me whenever I get ready to go on vacation. More frequently than not, I end up taking more books than I could probably read on one trip. My opinion is that I’d rather have too much to read on a trip than too small.

If you’re like me, you continue to think regarding what’s on your vacation reading list this year—and I can’t suggest the books below highly enough.

None of them are what most people believe of as a light read. All but one deal with the idea of disturbance, but I don’t mean “disturbance” in the way tech people usually mean it. I’ve lately found myself attracted to books about explosion (that’s even the title of the one of them)—whether it’s the Soviet Union right after the Bolshevik revolution, the United States during times of war, or a global reevaluation of our financial system.

If you’re scanning for something that’s more of a regular summer book, I recommend Graeme Simsion’s The Rosie Result. (And if you haven’t read the first two books in the Rosie trilogy, summer vacation is the perfect time to start!) I also can’t resist a plug for Melinda’s new book The Moment of Lift. I know I’m biased, but it’s one of the most enjoyable books I’ve read so far this year.
